Sunday, September 16th

Razor: Tradere Solid Bar
Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium
Brush: Vie-Long Butterscotch Beehive Silver Tip
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Top Secret
Scuttle: DB TSN Bill Bowl
A/S: Alt Innsbruck

I finally broke down and adopted a Tradere Solid Bar razor. The Tradere feels very solid and the slightly shorter handle is very comfortable. The razor is slightly head heavy and it was easy to let the razor do the work. I enjoyed an excellent shave and will be keeping the Tradere in rotation. Very nice indeed!

Listen. Speech is the prudence of the aged
And time is a passionate sculptor of men
And the sun stands over it, a beast of hope
And you, closer to it, embrace a love
With a bitter taste of tempest on your lips.

Sunday Morning,

Shavette Filarmónica & Derby Professional - Calani "Eis Engel" - Semogue carabela - Perfume Castle Forbes

[Image: p9160001l.jpg]

An excellent shave, I still Calani today with Carabela Semogue not strike me as a brush soap ideal for this morning will change to 1305 and thus confirm that these soaps behave better with bristle brushes with the badger. ..

Today no after, I do not like balms, but if Castle Forbes colonies therefore the way of after use, my skin is so dry and I really enjoy the aroma.

Razor: Tradere OC (1st generation)
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Omega 31025 "Scarlatti" Boar
Soap or Cream: Mitchell's Wool Fat
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Taylor’s Mr. Taylor Splash

The more I use MWF, the better I like it. This morning’s shave was great, leaving my face feeling moisturized and comfortable. The Tradere, as usual, easily made the stubble disappear and the Mr. Taylor splash provided a very pleasant finish.

I have designated Sunday to be my straight razor shave day because that seems to be the only day of the week when I can really chill out and enjoy a nice, slow, and relaxing shave. Today's experience was like Paradise - my hot towel treatment, followed by a good facial massage, and then the lathering-up. I did 3 passes, and I'm almost as smooth as my wife and daughter. BTW, this Znakhar cream from Russia is a treasure - does it ever feel wonderful on the skin and it has a classic scent. The Hega aftershave is from Sweden, and it not only has a light and nice scent, it allows you not to use any moisturizer. Now, I'll take my daughter and niece and nephew out for breakfast. Have a great day, my friends!
