- Proraso pre-barba.
- Jabonman lima-canela shaving cream-soap.
- Simpson Special pure badger.
- Scuttle Pink Floyd v2.
- Wilkinson Classic.
- Astra superior platinum.
- Los Manantiales de La Toja lotion.
- Los Manantiales de La Toja balm.

Really smooth two passes shave. First with the grain and the second one across-oblique-against the grain (all in one)Biggrin
Everything has perfomed high; Jabonman is spectacular, the safety razor although has no glamour at all, shaves good and Los Manantiales lotion and balm always great.
Special mention to the special Simpson, I really like that brush.

Have a nice day.

Un saludo.

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Gillette Super Thin
Brush: Vie-Long Gonzalo (04102) Boar/Horse
Soap or Cream: D.R. Harris Almond Hard Soap
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Meehan Bay Rhum

A very fine, satisfying Sunday shave. The Futur seems to bring out the best in any blade, and this shave was both comfortable and BBS. The Meehan BR provided the perfect finish.

Super Speed/Rapira day 6
Mama Bear Lemon Ice SS
444 AS Balsam
Booster Iced Lime AS
Chabrawichi 555 Cologne (an OLD Egyptian cologne, and very cheap)

I was going crazy this morning trying to find my Iced Subzero soap because I wanted so badly to show it some love today, but our stupid cleaning lady re-arranged the location of a lot of my soaps and creams without my permission. The Mama Bear Lemon Ice soap is still excellent, but I definitely prefer JoAnna's soaps. The Iced Lime aftershave is a real keeper for me, and I'm in love with the 444 balsam. This Chabrawichi cologne from Egypt costs maybe 3 bucks in Cairo, and it has a nice lemony/lavender scent. I'm surprised at how often I used soaps this week, because I'm generally very much more a cream guy, but I'm definitely making a turn-around.

Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Somerset Simpson Milk Churn Best brush
Czech & Speake No. 88 shaving soap
Feather AS razor
Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellow blade (4)
Abercrombie & Fitch Woods aftershave balm

A great shave overall. I had a little difficulty building lather with the C&S, but it eventually formed. The Feather and Gillette continue to do exactly what they are supposed to do, and the A&F was a beautiful finish. All accompanied by my Sunday Kona coffee.
