Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur Long Handled Progress
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Simpson Emperor 2 Two-Band
Soap or Cream: Tabac Soap
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Tabac Splash

A fine BBS shave with one of my favorite soaps, probably my first tallow-based soap. The weather has cooled to more moderate temperatures, and I'm a happy guy. There is nothing like a good shave to start the day off right!

Mach 3 (5)
Vie-Long Pro Horsehair
KMF Cool Mint Shave Soap
Nivea Sensitive Post Balm
Krampert's Finest Bay Rum

At least 7 shaves out of a generic Mach 3 cartridge would be very good. So far smooth and close without irritation. Prep is the key to a successful shave.

Omega Wooden Handle
Super Speed/Shark day 2
New Proraso Green SC
Gillette Series Intense Cooling AS Balsam
Gillette Wild Rain AS

This new version of Proraso Green cream is awesome stuff - I never realized that Proraso could come out with such a big improvement. Wow, the lather is so explosive, the scent is still the same, but the skincare is a million times better than before, and it's just as cooling as ever. I'm not usually a big fan of Gillette products, but the Intense Cooling balsam and the Wild Rain aftershave splash both smell so nice and feel so good on my skin. 2 passes without any touch-ups got me ultra-BBS. Sorry, no pictures today!

Razor: iKon Bulldog OC
Blade: Gillette Yellow
Brush: Simpson M7 Manchurian
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Trumper Violet
Scuttle: Ladysea Two-Piece Scuttle
A/S: Alt Innsbruck

The Simpson M7 works as well with soaps as it does with creams and I was rewarded with mounds of lather. The iKon/Gillette Yellow combination left my face feeling smooth and the finish of Alt Innsbuck was the cherry on the sundae.
