Omega Wooden Handle
Super Speed/Shark day 4
Lider Classic SC
Lubriderm unscented moisturizer
Booster Iced Lime AS

A very enjoyable and ULTRA-BBS shave this morning because I was able to relax and take my time. The Lider Classic cream has such a nice scent, and it lathers like a maniac. The Booster Iced Lime aftershave compliments it very well, and it feels so good on the skin.

Sunday morning:

Hot towel face prep
Top Ten for men cream (from Bulgaria)
Omega 10019 boar
Gillette Tech
Vintage Wilk' Super + Chromium
KF bay rum

Whenever I begin testing a new blade I start the test procedure with my least aggressive razors, and frankly I don't expect much from the shave. If I get a DFS I call it good. I was pleasantly surprised today. 2 passes + touchups for a BBS. It's got to be the blade.

Fabulous shave with the re-formulated Proraso...tons of slick, rich, cushion filled lather....Finished the shave with Floid Blue...first time using this A/S...normally use the Spanish Floid in the Vigoroso format but this is quite different. Fantastic scent, great feel on the face (menthol and other goodies)....awesome!

Blue Pack Personna (3)
Semogue 1520
Razorock Classic SC/SS
Razorock Aftershave Wax

I love the Razorock Classic SS and my DE86 with the Personna just glides through it and gives me a smooth irritation free shave. Following up with the Razorock Aftershave Wax leaves my face feeling moisturized without feeling greasy, and it just takes a dab on your fingers to get the job done. The scent isn't my favorite but it doesn't hang around for very long. To be honest I'm a Bay Rum type of guy and with the aftershave wax I detect the scent of Pine needles. Don't get me wrong this is a great product and next time I purchase it I'll get the King Louis Lavender Aftershave Wax since they don't have a Bay Rum scent.
