Still trying to get the perfect shave with a straight razor. I get better and better at the shaving side and I seem to have stropping down but the neck area still gives me problems. The reason being that my hair grains are sideways instead of up or down. This means it is impossible to go against the grain on my neck with a straight razor.
The soap continues to be VDH deluxe. I have two more pucks of it so I want to go ahead and finish this one and then move to another soap. Maybe Arko or Bigelow.
The aftershave balm is from The Bath House and smells so damn good. Soaked right in and face feels non greasy. Very similar to Nivea Sensitive balm.
