Shave of the Day ~ No Theme Tuesday

Prep

  • Hot Shower/ Soap

Shave

Post

  • Hot Water
  • Cold Water
  • Brut Attitude aftershave

The white stuff in the salsa bowl in the background is more of the lather and was more than I needed. The brush is half the size of a Semogue 830 but after working on it I had enough lather for at least 5 passes. We will never know as I only did two passes. One XTG and then a touch up for a flawless BBS shave. The Brut Attitude is a perfect companion for the Southsea Spray scent.  The neck passes were smooth and the blade easily glided through the stubble. The only problem I had was my right cheek on touch up (ATG) because of some acne coming up there. That happens nearly every time I have a BBS shave on that side, which I had yesterday. I really need to start washing my face more often at night I suppose.

I have yet to have a bad shave with the Wickham I think. I’d have to go back through my reviews but I’m pretty sure I am right. I have left what I kept of the sample out in the open and the scent is toned down a little. It’s a fresh clean scent. Think of clothes coming out of the washing machine and freshly washed. It’s okay for me but I prefer the Garden Mint.

5th shave for the same blade and since the neck pass went so well I will use it again tomorrow.

4-29
