    Injector week :happy108


    Prep: Hot shower
    Coffee: Home roasted, fresh ground Rwanda, BLACK
    Cream: C.O. Bigelow*
    Brush: The Dridecker
    Injector: Schick E Model
    Blade: ??? Day 1, 3+ passes
    Post: Cold water rinse, ice water splash, Osage Rub, Brut Attitude
    'Stache Wax: Steve's Own

    Shave Rating: 4 Blades

    A little rough. I've noticed with some blades the first shave with them can be, but then smooth out. I'm hoping this one follows suit.

    *It was the end of the tube, so I unloaded all I could get out of it. Jeff would be proud :D There was more left in there than I thought and wound up with enough for two 3-pass shaves!

    Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
    Razor: Merkur Futur
    Blade: Rapira Swedish SuperSteel
    Brush: Vulfix 2006 Pure Badger
    Cream: Cyril Salter Sublime Citrus
    A/S: Thayer's Lemon Witch Hazel, TOBS No. 74 Victorian Lime Splash

    Another fine shave with the Rapira blade. Further experience with it will determine its longevity. If I can consistently get 4 or 5 good shaves from the blade, I will induct it into my Hall of Favorites. ;) The citrus combination of cream, WH, and splash provided a very refreshing shaving experience this cloudy morning.

    Diana Sport Menthol Balsam :love008 :love008 :anifrozen :anifrozen
    Lubriderm unscented moisturizer
    Aramis EDT

    What a face-freezing experience this was--Gada Cool Mint is so cold and nice, with a great scent and rich, creamy lather. It also has camomile for a very soothing and relaxing effect. The Diana Menthol Balsam is awesome as well. ;) :D

    Razor: Gem G-Bar
    Blade: Ted Pella
    Brush: Thater Stout 1
    Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
    Soap: D.R. Harris Arlington
    A/S: Trumper Extract of Limes Splash

    It has been awhile since I used an SE razor but it was calling my name this morning. Muscle memory took over and I enjoyed a fine shave followed by a very refreshing splash of the most pure lime fragrance available. Very nice!
