365 shaves in 2021.

Tuesday 20th July, shave #201.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: MWF
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: Rockwell 6S R5, Astra SP #5
Post-shave: Hyaluronic acid and Nivea Balm.

Having used the open comb .68 for a week, it works well and looks good, but I find safety bars more comfortable for daily use.

Back to the Rockwell, and got a relaxing DFS. The head pairs up well with this knurly Ti handle, and it gets the weight down to 88g.

Thursday 22nd July, shave #203.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: MWF
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: GC.68 SB, Astra SP #7
Post-shave: Nivea 2-Phase Lotion.

Tried fewer passes (skipped some XTG), and got a surprisingly fine result with no irritation at all.

Fast, too, although I'm not trying to beat the clock these days. I wish I'd had something this good when I was working.
