    2020-11-23, Monday

    This is a very special day for me: today I am the same age my father was when he was this age.
    And I would like to celebrate, but I never celebrate anything, so I don't know what to do.
    A day that started in such a special way, now it's complicated: I'll get over it and face it manly!

    A clear and positive note: a very fragrant shave and a very pleasant smoothness.

    Gillette Twinjector
    Personna Injector
    Osage Rub

    The Eskimo Tuxedo Shave Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #206 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Twinjector razor with a Personna Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Lightly inspired by the notes found in Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Pour Homme, we crafted something imaginative by drawing upon our love for nature, and employing the materials it provides. Classic Two has a clean and refreshing character, with a compelling floral and herbal element.
    Moss, woods, herbs, spices, florals, and citrus converge to construct a classic, refined fragrance.

    Light, citrusy scent, with herbal and darker undertones. It's not the same as the YSL, but compliments it.

    Timeless Slim SS/Bronze OC & Gillette Platinum (2)
    Yaqi 28mm Tux Barber Pole
    Mama Bears Dolce & Gabbana type soap
    Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme a/s Lotion
    Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme eau de toilette

    Awesome shave between two of Timeless’s most aggressive razors. Ultimately, the SS Slim is the smoother performer with equal shave prowess to the OC Bronze. Magnificent razors they are both but, the Slim is easier to use and slightly better on the face. A wonderful day and shaves to all....

    Shave of the Week Starting 11/23/2020

    Pearl Flexi razor
    Astra SP blade
    RazoRock Synthetic brush
    Proraso Green SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Proraso Green A/S

    Pearl Shaving just released these and I got one. As you can see in the photo, it's an adjustable going from 1 - 6. The blade gap varies from .35 -1.4 mm. Doesn't sound like much but the gap can be huge. I decided to start at 2 and after a few strokes went to 1.5. Oh, and it weighs in at 5+ oz. Heavy sucker. So the combination of the weight and blade gap made it feel very aggressive to me. Got a 2 pass BBS with no problem. I'll be playing with it all week and will give a full report later. Right now my face is ok but looks great. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Menthol Monday:

    Neutrogena Men Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Minora day 9
    Bundubeard Cool As A Cucumber X 3 SS
    Prep ASB
    B&M Arctique AS Splash

    A better name for this soap would be “Frigid As The North Pole” or “Hypothermia” because that’s how it feels - IMHO this is the COLDEST soap I’ve ever used in my entire life. The scent is very nice indeed, but there’s more to it than just cucumber - to my nose there’s a lot of peppermint to it as well as powerful menthol fumes which can cause your nose to burn if you sniff too long, the lather becomes so thick and slick if you add a bit of water, and the menthol sensation hits you like ten tons of icy cold bricks, yet the skincare is perfect. The Prep gave me wonderful postshave attention, and the Arctique aftershave not only brought the freeze to another level it also smells lovely. Three passes with this nine day old Minora blade gave me a super duper BBS shave!

    Have a great week - be well and safe!
