This Gillette Rocket shave was inspired by Charlie, who persuaded me to layer a second aftershave splash after Fine Snake Bite.  It works quite well because Snake Bite only has water, alcohol and menthol, and its scent dissipates quickly.

MSC Vintage Spice SS
CutiBase Moisturizer
MSC Vintage Spice AS Splash

No doubt about it - my brother Fernando really nailed it big time when he created this Vintage Spice soap and aftershave because the scent is an EXACT copy of the beloved Shulton Old Spice. Only a master of soaps and aftershaves can do it and Fernando is a Grand Master. The soap’s tallow formula gives the lather magnificent richness and slickness as well as soothing, gentle skincare. The CutiBase moisturizer is great as a balm and it’s unscented so it doesn’t damage that gorgeous Old Spice scent. The Vintage Spice aftershave is witch hazel based so there’s no burning or stinging from it and if I was blindfolded I would never be able to tell the difference between the Shulton Old Spice and this one - such a precious treasure. What a delightful three pass BBS shave!

Enjoy your Sunday - be well and safe!

Prep: P.A.A. Cube 2.0 (face wash)

Razor: Alpha Shaving Works Bandit w/ open comb (no lather drain) base plate (prototype)
Blade: Gillette Minora Platinum

Soap: Barrister & Mann Four Horsemen Famine
Brush: Yaqi Purple Haze (synthetic)
Bowl: Bluff Cove Pottery

Post 1: P.A.A. Alum No-Slip Grip System w/ Dry Dock System
Post 2: Dickinson's Enhanced Witch Hazel Deep Cleansing Astringent w/ Menthol & Eucalyptus
Post 3: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra-Dry w/ Hyaluronic Acid

I decided to shave on consecutive days due to the limited time there is for me to try my Four Horsemen samples and put in a pre-order for any that I'd like to own in a full size.

Today I went with Famine. Right off the bat this one is the one I liked most when simply smelling them in their bags. It has more floral notes on top of Death's base, which I have to say makes for an overall very unique scent. These Four Horsemen scents are quite different from any fragrance I've smelled before.

I did a fairly quick three-pass shave, this time going back to using the open-comb base plate with no lather drains and again using the Gillette Minora Platinum blade. I'm loving the razor but man, this Minora blade keeps biting me. I've not cut myself more in the last, I don't know how many years, than I have in the last two days. I'm not sure if this is all due to this razor/blade combo or just the blade alone. I'll have to test this blade in a more familiar razor to come to any real conclusion.

I finished things off in my typical fashion and chose not to use any other aftershave so that I could allow the scent of Famine to linger as long as possible.

All in all a good shave but am left with some irritation. Thankfully the (unscented) Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream saves the day. This stuff really goes a long way to soothing razor burn.

Rock on gentlemen. Enjoy your shave!
