    Well you should be good for the New years shave. Have a good one!:badger:
  18. Arko shaving soap
    Tweezerman Pure badger
    Gillette Red Tip SS with Persona blade
    Pinaud Bay Rum

    I know this is a cheap setup, but it gives a great shave.

    Total cost is less than $30 for all this.
  19. OK I'm posting this in advance since I usually shave in the evening. I don't have a digital camera so I'll have to wait to post pictures
    • Col. Conks Almond Soap
    • Murkur Futur razor
    • Feather New Hi Stainless Platinum Coated Blades
    • Vulfix pure badger brush
    • T.N. Dickinsons Witch Hazle
    • Col. Conk's Bay Rum Aftershave - Cologne
    • Nivea for Men Energy AS Cooling Balm with Menthol

    Everything on the list is new except for the Col. Conk's products. Since this is officially my second DE shave and the first with the new razor and blades, the Nivea is there in case of emergencies. If I have to use it, I don't think I'll be using my old stand by (Col. Conk's Bay Rum AS) since I can't imagine the scents of the two products working together at all.

    All of my post shave stuff has alcohol in it... Oh well I have a high tolerance to pain... I think.


    Ok shaves over...

    Ack one cut or so on my neck, same place as when I tried my Dad's Gillette. A little no nick and all is well. I'm going for the Bay Rum Baby....
  20. Slant w/ Derby (day 2)
    C&E BBB
    Provence Sante
    Clubman ASS
    Nivea ASB

    Have a happy holiday!
