Let's see those Shaves! Make sure to bring out the best on February 25th for the Shave Nook Anniversary Shave. We are turning 1 year old. Cool

Sunday, February 24th

Razor: Eclipse Red Ring
Blade: Polsiler Super Iridium
Brush: J.L. Petree Silvertip
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Trumper Coconut (tallow formula)
Scuttle: Ladysea Scuttle
A/S: Floid Blue

An excellent shave! This was my first use of the Eclipse Red Ring and I can see why they are so sought after. Not only is it cool looking, it provides a very smooth shave. I would characterize the Red Ring as a mild razor yet, it is very effective.

A little busy lately. A few stacked up here:

Friday: Breaking out the samples
Proraso pre
Vulfix 660S Badger
GFT Rose SC (sample)
Merkur 34c HD
Gillette 7 o'clock Yellow (2)
Thayer's Peach Witch Hazel (sample)
GFT Coral Skin Food (sample)

Nice floppy feeling with the Vulfix for a change. Very different to the Duke and the Omega Boar. The GFT Rose SC was a pleasant surprise.


Saturday: Wake up face!
Proraso pre
Duke 2 Best
Proraso SC green
Merkur 34c HD
Feather (1)
Thayer's Original Witch Hazel
Proraso AS lotion

Proraso all the way.


Sunday: Loving the Bay Rum
Proraso pre
Omega 37 boar
WM Neumann Bay Rum SC
Merkur 34c HD
Feather (2)
Thayer's Original Witch Hazel
DR Harris Bay Rum AS
YSL Kouros EDT

Quick efficient shave required. Achieved. The puck in an Old Spice mug worked a treat. The Omega lathered up in a flash and then ensued a really nice face lather.

The feather (sampler) blade was interesting in that the extreme sharpness was missing at the outset. Felt more like an Astra. Very nice nevertheless.

My SOTD for Sat evening was a lazy failure...Ever have one of those lazy days/evenings where thinking about doing something is as far as you get? I loaded the DLC, thought about a brush/soap, and then thought...bah...I will shave tomorrow, then proceeded to walk out of the den dragging my feet along the way...Tongue

Axe Chilled Facial Wash
#6 Horsehair
Dovo Bismarck 5/8
Gada Cool Mint SC
Anherb AS Conditioner
Alt Innsbruck AS

My two favorite days are my Sunday Straight Razor Shave and my Menthol Monday Shave - today, I decided to combine them. It was so relaxing for me to shave with my Dovo Bismarck and get so BBS. The Axe Chilled facial wash made the Gada Cool Mint cream feel even colder, (believe me, it's cold enough as it is!) the Anherb conditioner gave my skin extra moisturizing and iciness, and the Alt Innsbruck put the frigid finishing touch on a magnificent shave!
