    Marvelous shave with the Schick Xtreme3 this morning. Three passes for a dolphin smooth and refreshing finish. Enjoy your day friends. :)

    Blade: Chinese Schick
    Razor: Schick adjustable
    Brush: Artisan badger
    Lather: RazoRock Puros
    Post: Witch hazel splash, Speick aftershave
    WTG, touch-up

    Smooth and comfortable shave with the Schick adjustable. I went with setting 7 and found it to be terrific. The Puros whipped up into terrific lather, but the post shave feel isn't all that great - not bad, but not terrific either. It feels a little drying on me. But the scent is nice and smoky and it led to a nice shave in the end.

    Have a great day!

    Bulgaria makes some of the best creams I've ever used. This Top Ten Sensitive cream is a real treat. It's scent is so nice, it's a joy to lather, and you get a very good cooling sensation with a very soothing post-shave feel. The Max Refreshing aftershave is downright cold, smells awesome, and feels so good. My shave couldn't have been better!

    Back to my Edwin Jagger DES86 which unfortunately is my best shaving razor. I say this because I really like using my vintage Gillette's but this razor just shaves so darn well (YMMV). Today I paired the EJ w/Pol-Silver SI (5) and got a fantastic shave. RazoRock XXX soap, Duke 2 Best, Witch hazel and a splash of Floid Vigoroso aftershave..........

    Today's shave used a sample I found yesterday in the back of my vanity; Trumper "Spanish Leather". It was a little hard, so I brought out the 10098 to deal with it.
    The big hog beat the hardened cream into a great smelling lather. The scent sort of reminded me of English Leather A/S. The Stubble Assassin, aka NEW SC/GSB, made my weekday whiskers disappear with a masterful 2.5 pass WWS. Some post care and a splash of Speick A/S from my sampler and the day was underway. Happy Tuesday!

    I had a major victory today. to some it may seem minor, but I am claiming victory. My face does not hurt after my shave today. Not only did I not cut myself, but I also managed a truly BBS shave without any significant irritation. I even went the last pass against the grain. I am learning.

    3 passes with no nicks, cuts, weepers or irritation.

    Nothing wrong with your favorite razor. I love vintage Gillettes. To look at. To shave with? Not so much.
