Sunday 12th August

Hot shower and facial scrub (Veleiro Pre-Shave Exfoliating Soap)
Proraso Sensitive Pre Shave cream.
Fatip Piccolo/IP
Semogue TSN LE Badger/Boar
Tweex Shave Stick
Witchazel with a little Arko Classic Fat
Selin Turkish Lemon Cologne
Morgan's Classic Pomade

First time using the TSN LE Brush. I used Tweex soap as it has the classic Arko smell and masked the 'new brush smell'. On its first run out....the brush performed admirably. Dense but not too dense, and I love the size. It blows my Vulfix Grosvenor 404 out of the water! The only downside for today, is that my sons go back to their home this evening.
An excellent 3 pass BBS.

Proraso Sandalwood SC
Gillette Series Intense Cooling AS Balsam
De Vergulde Hand AS Spray

I was hoping to use my Dovo Bismarck this morning, but my wife begged last night me to take my sister-in-law and brother-in-law to the airport this morning to catch an early flight to Florida, so I settled on the next best thing and I still got an outstanding shave. I swear, this Proraso Sandalwood cream is magnificent - the scent blows me away, the lather is awesome, and the skincare is wonderful. The Gillette Series balsam is very cooling and moisturizing, and the De Vergulde Hand aftershave is a true delight. Sorry, no photos today.

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Treet DuraSharp
Brush: H.L. Thater Stout 2
Soap or Cream: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
A/S: Dickinson’s Witch Hazel, Taylor's Mr. Taylor Splash

An excellent shave this morning–it’s no mystery that MWF has such a loyal following. The Futur/Treet combo effortlessly sailed through the stubble with BBS results and the Mr. Taylor splash provided a fine finish.

Received some Givenchy samples and decided to try them. Not bad, for a contemporery scent they blended pretty well with the GFT. Don't know if I'd buy any though.

Muhle R102 (2011) w/Feather
Proraso PSC
VDH Deluxe SS
Caswell Massey Ceramic Badger
Dickinson's Witch Hazel
Brut Original ASB
Mennen Original Skin Bracer

I GOT IT! For the first time I got a very comfortable and secure feeling shave with the dreaded Muhle. (the 2011 version) It has really been bugging me that I couldn't feel comfortable with this razor. I knew it was a blade angle issue but, every logical angle I used tried to eat my face off. I did some research (it's been too blasted hot to do anything outside so I have some time around the computer) and noticed a video by geofatboy. Along with the standard "how to make lather, put a blade in the razor, prep your face, etc. along with selling a product or two" he started shaving. The angle that he used showed the head almost 90 degrees from the face. I would never have "scrapped" it accross my face like that but at the speed he was going it had to work! I gave it a go at that angle this morning and got an outstanding shave with no irritatiion, nicks or cuts whatsoever! The ASL felt like water on my BBS face. Go figure! Looks like I will be keeping the little shark mouth monster after all. Cool
