    Pal Adjustable razor
    Personna blade
    RazoRock Plissoft brush
    TSD Iced Lemon Grass SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    TSD 2X Menthol Lemon Grass A/S

    Had to blow the dust off the Pal, it's been a long since I used it last. Need to use it more often cuz it gives a fine mild shave and my face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Thursday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra day 4
    Palmolive Menthol SC

    Even though the weather will be cooling down quite a bit all I'm doing is reducing the chill - not cutting it out completely!

    Razor: Personna Flex Head
    Blade(s): Gillette Twinjector (3)
    Lather: Proraso Green
    Pre shave: Homemade
    AS: Brut Splash On topped by Afta by Mennen
    Cold water rinse
    Newspaper Date: Feb. 2,1944

    Three times, not boring yet! A 2 pass shave, WTG/ATG, almost no clean up. Smooth, close, clean all the way. Not even a hint of a weeper. Resulting in a solid BBS+, I even got those neck spots that are so hard to clean off. A really happy camper. God Bless and hoping for the same for all.

    It's is that. Thank you, Doug. It's unusual in it's construction - white glass for the majority but the top section is clear. I was pleased to see the gold color through upper lens of the lighthouse is the aftershave. I didn't get the original box, but the plastic bits are undamaged and the Shulton scent is there.

    Route 66 Retro Spice has all the great performance of the soaps I've enjoyed from their line. The soap scent is lighter than the vintage AS but it's a hit.

    Here's a list of the scents for both, underlined for same or similar scents.

    Retro Spice; orange, sage and lemon over a lightly spiced floral heart and a base of vanilla, cedarwood, frankincense, tonka and musk.

    Old Spice; Orange, Lemon, Spices, Clary Sage, Aldehydes, Cinnamon, Carnation, Geranium, Jasmine, Heliotrope, Pimento Berry, Vanilla, Musk, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Benzoin, Tonka, Ambergris.

    Omega Pro49
    Body Shop Macca Root cream
    Gillette Slim
    Astra SP
    A little alum, and

    Soap: Oleo Montrose Beach
    A/S: Old Spice Fresh Lime
    Mugs & Brush: Old Spice Shave mugs & Brush

    Top Mug:
    In this mug, produced in late 1950's to 1960, the words "Shaving Mug" were printed in blue beneath the image of the ship. The ship appears opposite the handle. The bottom is marked "Early American Old Spice" in a top arc with "Shulton Inc., Clifton, N.J." in a bottom arc. The arcs are separated with a single star on each side.

    Left Mug:
    This mug was sold from 1964 until 1978. The ship name appears opposite the handle, with Ship Grand Turk on each side. Bottom is marked Old Spice and Shulton with a number that is the mold mark used by Wheaton Glass in the mug manufacturing. Dimensions 2.25" high X 4.75" rim to handle. This mug introduced a reduced shaving soap cake of 3.75 ounces.

    Right mg:
    Late Glass Mug 03 shows the Ship Recovery on both sides. I believe it was manufactured for a few years starting in 1970-1978. Bottom is marked Old Spice and Shulton with a number that is the mold mark used by Wheaton Glass in the mug manufacturing. Dimensions 2.25" h X 4.75" rim to handle. This mug held 3.75 ounces of shaving soap.

    Brush: I don't know anything about this brush.
