Let's see those shaves!

Sunday, February 17th

Razor: Merkur Progress
Blade: Permasharp Super
Brush: Simpson M7 Manchurian
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Castle Forbes Lavender
Scuttle: TSN Bill Bowl
A/S: Santa Maria Novella Russian Cologne

I received the Castle Forbes Lavender cream from Ben and used it for the first time this morning. I appreciate that it does not use dyes and I do not run the risk of staining the Simpson Manchurian brush. I enjoyed a nice shave followed by a refreshing splash of Santa Maria Novella Russian Cologne. Very nice indeed.

Proraso pre - green
Omega 37 Boar
Merkur 37c slant (1st outing!)

The slant is as amazing as I've been hearing. Effortless, smooth shave with no nicks or irritation. It's my latest favourite razor.

This razor is the one I started on 15 months ago. It is still performing well having had touch ups only ......with paste and a couple of visits to a purple Welsh slate. I am beginning to wonder how it would perform if an expert rehoned it and I started again from scratch. An excellent shave on a beautiful day in Wales. Pity I have to work this evening :-(

Dovo Bismarck 5/8
Pascale SC
Svoboda AS Balsam
Booster Iced Lime AS
Chabrawichi 555 Cologne

What a shave, what a shave, what a shave, what a shave - not even a professional barber could have done a better job than this because I think it's the best BBS that I've had all month. I checked and rubbed my face all over, and I cannot see or feel any stubble. The Pascale cream is another great cream from Bulgaria which is also available in certain countries in eastern Europe. It smells beautiful, (like a rich eau de cologne scent) the lather is a delight to work with, and it has a very mild and discrete cooling effect. The Svoboda balsam and Iced Lime aftershave were a wonderful finish to such a nice experience.
