    Wowwww what a freeze I had today and what a great BBS shave. The Glacial Black Cherry soap is so intensely-cold that the eyes water and the nose runs. This Austrian-made Diana balm has a ton of menthol and I won't even begin to explain the Arctique!

    Have a great week!

    Prep: Stirling mentholated pre-shave soap
    Blade: Schick
    Razor: Personna injector
    Brush: Vulfix badger
    Lather: C.O. Bigelow cream
    Post: Witch hazel, Barbasol Pacific Rush aftershave
    WTG, touch up

    Easy and enjoyable menthol Monday shave. The Bigelow cream lathers so easily and is slick. The menthol touch is light but nice and refreshing at the same time. All came together nicely.

    Have a great day!

    Jamie, you have a deep shave den and have great product setups each and every day! The lather in the last picture of this post looks like a whipped cream tub. Nicely done!

    Forgot to post Saturday night's shave. STUPID CLOSE BBS in 3! Great antique store find by my son with a fresh Astra SP, MERS Barbershop superlathered with a small dollop of Cremo Sandalwood. Thayers Rose was refreshing and the Skin Bracer was a Helluva slap as always!

    About to revisit this heavenly shave now.

    RazoRock MJ-90 (standard base plate)
    Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Stainless
    RazoRock "What The Puck" Blue Barbershop
    Jayaruh #134
    Skin Bracer in Avon "The Knight" decanter

    My shave last night found me using two new products for the first time. The first was the RazoRock "What The Puck" shave soap in the Blue Barbershop scent. This soap is a hard triple milled vegan based shave soap with Shea Butter and Lanolin. The scent is supposed to be reminiscent of Floid Blue (I've never smelled Floid Blue or anything else that has claimed to be similar before) and was fantastic! The soap was able to achieve a super goop consistency and was very dense, creamy, and slick. The second product that got its' first go last night was the RazoRock MJ-90 safety razor. With a machined aluminum head and titanium handle this makes for a very lightweight razor. The standard base plate is designed to be very similar (clone) to that of the EJ DE89/ Mule R89. Indeed this razor felt very safe on the face with minimal blade feel and has a narrow cutting angle window. After three passes I had a nice DFS, but there is definitely room for improvement. On the plus side there was not a hint of irritation. After I was done I applied some the the remaining lather to my face while I cleaned up, post shave feel was very nice. My skin felt soft and hydrated and I did not experience any drying or tightness. I finished off with a splash of Skin Bracer and was relaxed and ready for bed. Have a great day my friends!

    I'd like to see some photos of your music collection one day. I have a few CDs, maybe 250 or so, and sold off or gave away most of my LPs. You are right - there are worse ways to spend money than on shaving gear!
