    (Face & Head Shave) (Shaving Cream Week)

    A new shave set up to start the bank holiday weekend...It's been a long time since i added my EG DE89 to my razor rotation.
    The next month or more i shall be using Russian made DE blades from the Moscow & ST Petersburg plants.
    Starting with the Astra SP blades, which along with the Gillette 7 0'clock Sharp edge ( Yellow) where two of the first blades i purchased to learn my technique and gain my shaving confidence from when entering the wonderful world of traditional wet shaving. Both of these blades are well suited to my skin type, and have always paired together well with each razor. The EG DE89 paired together excellently with the Astra SP making a smooth efficient duo...I find the Astra SP blades get better with each shave.

    A enjoyable close comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few squirts of X-Bolt EdT to the pulse points.

    My face & precious swede are feeling silky smooth and smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the long bank holiday weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Italy is always the last to adapt to circumstances: why don't they declare today to be Teleworkers' Day?
    What insipience...

    Due to obvious reasons, one cannot talk about telershaving, even in telematically advanced times, and this has allowed me to shave in a truly traditional way: me and myself with the tools designated for the purpose.

    So, now, I am smooth and not e-smooth!

    Janus Toggle & Gillette Silver Blue
    APShaveCo. 30mm Tux White/Rose Gold Flake
    Ethos Grooming Greenfresh soap
    Ethos Grooming Greenfresh skin food splash
    Guerlain Homme L’Eau Boisee eau de toilette
    Best shave from the much criticized Janus Toggle. Set it at 6 then 5 and I could swim with the Dolphins off the Atlantic Coast. No irritation to speak of as the Ethos does what it does best, provide copious amounts of glide & slickness. Smells awesome too. A wonderful day and shaves to all....

    Here was my birthday shave this morning:

    Prep-Dial 4 Men Bodywash(Infinite Fresh)in shower
    Shave-Gillette Foamy Original
    razor-Gillette Sensor Deuce Pivot + DisposeABLE
    A.S. -Agua Lavanda de Puig*

    by Antonio Puig.

    Fine shave to begin my 64th year on this planet. What I've always liked about Gillette Foamy is how quickly and easily it spreads across the face and neck. It was hard to avoid getting some on the beard(S. Porcupine Alley). Ahh, figured I'd just wipe it off at the end of the shave. Overall a well-done shave. Had to go very carefully over the area of yesterday's Knick. One pass, as is always the case with my canned sophisticated goo. Good work down at Cactus Nation. The Agua Lavanda de Puig was a nice finish. Frank Sinatra wore this. Most excellent.
