Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Lime Basil

Yes Dipesh, the brush certainly has a "wow" factor. It's imposing both in size and the volume of lather it produces...

Another shave from Paradise!

L'Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
#6 Horsehair
Dovo Bismarck 5/8
Tryphon Mentolo SS
Anherb AS Conditioner
Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS
Chabrawichi 555 Cologne

Smoother than silk as well as cold as ice - another wonderful shave which I enjoyed so much. I wish this Tryphon Mentolo soap was still available because it's so good. The scent is so nice, and it fills the bathroom while you're lathering up and shaving. I'd say the menthol effect is stronger than Proraso Green, and it leaves your skin well-moisturized also. As always, the Anherb conditioner and Aqua Velva provide extra freezing and soothing.

Sunday.....nothing too fancy.

Prep: BC Shave Oil (TX Cedar/Lavender/Tea Tree)-Hot Shower
Shave Soap: Proraso Red Tub
Razor: Maggard MR1
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue
Brush: Omega 10066 Boar
Aftershave: Krampert’s Frostbite

WTG-XTG-ATG (adjusted angle for my beard a bit)

I used my homemade shave oil today along with the Proraso Red for the first time. I washed my face and rubbed in 3 drops of the oil before my shower. The shave oil does seem to make the beard stand up. I am on the 4th day with the Gillette Silver Blue-no tugs. My shave was excellent and nick and burn free. I finished off with the Frostbite (it does have a great bite!). Tomorrow, I get to try Floid Blue for the first time.

Ben, I feel privileged that not only do you have an astounding collection but also the photographic skills to showcase the collection for us. I feel like it's an online museum that will be here for posterity! (I HOPE)
