Shave of the Day(s) ~ Week 8/11 – 8/17

 

August 11th

  • Soap – Green Mountain Soaps – Lime/Vetiver
  • Brush – Ever~Ready 200T
  • Razor – Merkur 23c
  • Blade – Zorrik
  • Aftershave – Old Spice – Lime
  • Cologne – Pinaud – Citrus Musk

Not my favorite soap and definitely not my favorite blade.  I find I have a tough time getting a good slick lather with GMS and the scent is only ‘okay’. The blade felt like it was pulling each hair out of my face instead of cutting but the end result was very nice.  The knot on this old brush certainly needs replacing but I can’t bring myself to do it as it has so much character! I love that old look. Hasn’t lost a hair on me yet!

  • Soap – TOBS – Mr. Taylor
  • Brush – Century #4
  • Razor – Merkur23c
  • Blade – Zorrik
  • Aftershave – Tabac

Last day for the Zorrik. I got a couple left but no intentions on using them. Not really into the scent of Mr. Taylor. It’s not bad or anything but it doesn’t call my name in the middle of the night. The lather on the other hand is superb. I’m really digging the Tabac aftershave. It feels good, it smells good and it lasts awhile. Perfection!

Williams Wednesday!

  • Soap – Williams Mug Soap (vintage)
  • Brush – Semogue 740
  • Razor – Merkur 23c
  • Blade – Personna med prep
  • Aftershave – Tabac

The blade tugged some today. Perhaps a bad blade or my lather was off. The end result was fantastic though.

  • Brush – Parker
  • Razor – Merkur 23c
  • Razor – Personna med prep

Fantastic shave. The Yardley has a very nice scent and does a nice job on the face. The blade felt better today so it must have been my lather yesterday.

August 17th

  • Soap – Yardley Gold
  • Brush – Parker
  • Razor – Merkur 23c
  • Blade – Personna med prep
  • Pre-shave – Corn Huskers with added menthol crystals
  • Cologne – GFT Spanish Leather

I’m always looking forward to Sunday shaves as that is when I apply some Spanish Leather. A nice thing abut the Yardley GOld is it is so moisturizing on the face that a aftershave isn’t needed. I don’t normally do a pre-shave but today I wanted to work in some coldness to my shave so that got added. I had skipped Saturday so today was just an awesome two pass shave that left me nearly BBS all over. A special thanks to Jim for the menthol crystals and Richard for the Yardley Gold! Today was the best shave of the past 7 days!
