    A quick, but good, close shave to begin the work week. Cerrus is one of the cheapest creams you can find in Germany, but it's excellent. I love the rich lather it gives, the scent is very nice as well, and it has a discrete cooling effect. ;) :D

    Rockin the Veg Monday

    Hot Shower
    Glycerin Pre-shave
    1908 Ever Ready Lather Catcher
    Semogue 2000
    Williams Soap
    Clubman Lilac Vegetal
    Murray and Lanman's Lotus and Violets Cologne

    Very Nice Shave! Surely I'm not the only Lilac Vegetarian here? It does go on a bit rough but the dry down is a delightful, powdery, flowery, smell that is quite enjoyable.

    Not tried it yet. I have too many stories of skunkified plastic bottles. One of these days maybe... but then again, I haven't tried anything Clubman yet either

    Good day, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Shave Den!

    Soap: Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet milled into Old Spice mug
    Brush: Rudy Vey 24mm custom Desert Ironwood #2
    Razor: The Pistachio Friodur
    AS: Osage Rub
    EDT: Geo. F. Trumper's Curzon

    Today, I discovered if I swirl the tip of the wet brush gently in the Penhaligon's for a few seconds, then transfer the brush to a secondary "latherizing" container (another Old Spice mug in this case) then I get a much more satisfying foam than by either face-lathering or bowl-lathering alone. What a great discovery, and a wonderful shave! Cheers, all!

    Razor: Merkur Futur on 1.75
    Blade: Iridium Super
    Brush: Rooney SMF III
    Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
    Soap: Tabac
    A/S: TOBS Luxury Sandalwood Gel

    Another great shave! I always get good performance out of Tabac and the Futur/Iridium combo cannot be beat. I am under the weather today and I found the sandalwood gel to be very pleasant and soothing. I need to use it more often.

    I decided to try out the Astra Superior Platinum in my Futur for the first time about 3 shaves and struck gold! Smoothest, closest shave to date with this combo.

    Monday Shave

    Monday, November 16, 2009

    Razor: Futur
    Blade: Gillette Wilkinson (India)
    Brush: Vulfix 2234 Super
    Soap/Cream: Cyril Salter Sublime Citrus cream
    A/S: Dickinson’s Witch Hazel/Ogallala Bay Rum, Limes, & Peppercorns

    An excellent, smooth and comfortable, BBS shave this morning on the second shave of the Indian Wilkinson. Part of the credit must go to the Salter cream, which seems to think it is a soap--very protective, with lots of warm, citrusy goodness.

    The Ogallala splash provided a fine and complementary finish.
