    That's a great price, Andrew! We don't have Big Lots here, but I'm always on the look out for new items to try. I can't find the Pacific Rush AS, but now I'm hopeful I'll find the AS balm. Thanks!

    Smells like the Drug Store SEptember!!!! (Stirling Booster)

    September 22

    Razor - M2 Schick Adjustable Injector
    Blade - [​IMG] (6)
    Pre - Stirling Mentholated Pre-shave soap
    Soap - Stirling Electric Sheep
    Brush - WCS Synthetic
    ASOD - Clubman

    I decided to stick with the pre-shave soap routine tonight and just rotate into a new shaving soap for the evening. The zapped mutton seemed a good idea so out it came. I did the wash with the pre-shave soap again, left it on my face and lathered the sheep on top of it. Just like last night, extremely slick and rich lather. Adding the light menthol to the Voltaged Varmit didn't take anything away at all. In fact, it definitely added its own unique scent to the mix and provided a bit of extra cooling beyond the eucalyptus. (Factoid that may only interest me - Eucalyptus oil has been used for a long time by musicians, especially trumpet players, to extend the time they are able to play at high and difficult ranges. I used it when I was playing lead trumpet in high school and college. I learned it from Maynard Ferguson - one of the greats in Jazz trumpet. Satchmo also was a fan of its use. Factoid over.)

    Two passes and touch up and it's a very near-BBS. Either the blade at 6 days is giving up a little bit or I just didn't take the time to grab the baby. Probably more my fault. Either way, a great shave for a Friday night and I'm surprised at how much I've enjoyed adding the pre-shave to the routine. Definitely not something you have to do, but it's a nice touch as an add-on or change up to the routine.

    And now, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls and all the ships at sea - the great Maynard Ferguson.

    Great to be back in Thailand. The Timeless Ti is a joy to use, loaded with a Wilkinson German blade. Incredible scent and lather from L&L whipped up with the Maseto led to a smooth and faultless shave. Finished with a splash of Pitralon Pure.

    Date: 23 September 2017... Home sweet home!!

    Pre: - Cold Water straight from the tap
    Brush: - Semogue SOC 2 Band Badger in Ash Wood 24/53mm knot
    Cream/Soap: - Wholly Kaw - King of Oud (tallow) Donkey Milk :love:
    Razor: - Muhle R41 v2013 with the iKon Bulldog Handle
    Blade: - Gillette Nacet #1
    Post: - Lucky Tiger Aftershave & Face Tonic / Bulldog Sensitive Moisturiser

    OMG!! I open a new tub of Wholly Kaw King of Oud (tallow) Donkey Milk is a very pleasant relaxing wonderful scent, straight from the tub without face lathering I can smell Bergamot, Lemon, Rose or maybe Rosewood, Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Amber WOW!!. Over all the whole scent while I was building up my face lather and shaving is smell very much like sweet marshmallow along with a freshness of floral, woody and rosy scent in the background is an absolute top performer, post shave and slickness. Because there a lot going on in the fragrance from top, middle and base note all over the place which smell wonderful, aromatic and very pleasant relaxing scent is a real keeper in my den sooo bad. You guys MUST try Wholly Kaw King of Oud (tallow) Donkey Milk you won't be sorry.

    It time to grab the Muhle R41 out of my den which has been nearly a whole year since my last shave and is still my favourite razor, the R41 shave very similar to a Colonial General and no....is not a mild razor the R41 is an aggressive razor which you MUST handle with respect or you'll end up in a bloodbath shave or otherwise you'll wake Freddy Krueger from the dead.

    Anyway is great to be home again along with my dog since he been worried sick about me for 2 months, still sitting beside me on bed and he still my baby boy which he has turn 4 years old last week. If the weather is nice and cool tomorrow I'm going to take him for a very nice long pleasant relaxing walk.
