    Well I last shaved on Sunday so I was indeed a bit scruffy. One of my favourite razors is the Gillette Red Tip Super Speed. I am lucky enough to own the trio and they are all good shavers in their own right. I have quite a few razors that can simply mow down whatever bread growth I have on the go but few do it as smoothly as a vintage Red Tip. Loaded up with a fresh Perma-Sharp Super.

    Body Shop Maca Root & Aloe was the soap of choice today with the matching AS gel. Quite impressed with easily this soap lathers up and how slick it is. Very nice post shave feel. There is no alcohol in the AS gel and it works the charm. I know there is nothing beachfront about maca root but the aloe sure makes me remember the tropics.

    Lovely two pass shave with a little buffing and BBS on a snowy Wednesday morning achieved. Happy hump day! Topped off with some Bath & Body Works Ocean EDT to compliment the beach theme...well for me anyway.
