1959 Red Tip
awesome red tip set Kevin..
Thursday, a little closer than Wednesday to the weekend but not quite there yet! Autopilot shave was needed so the Gillette Rocket HD which has patiently been waiting its turn got called up. Loaded up with a Gillette Rubie.
RazoRock Saturnia was the soap of the day with the matching AS. Powerful scent but I love it and as Fall approaches next week it’s perfect for this time of year in my opinion.
Lovely three pass BBS shave with no muss or fuss. Clean smooth and comfortable. Alum block indicated nothing at all which with the Rocket HD is to be expected! Topped it off with a healthy spritz of Bvlgari Man. Well that was quite a nice shave indeed. Enjoy your day and your shave! Stay safe.
