Tuesday 21st September, shave #264.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Palmolive
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: GC.68 OC, Wizamet SI #5
Post-shave: Nivea 2-Phase Lotion.

I made a new Palmolive puck from one stick, sliced up and pressed into a Wilkinson blue bowl.

Used the open comb again, and got another easy DFS without any irritation.

I didn't set myself any goals with this 365, except for reinforcing the good habit. Technique (that elusive thing) seems to be getting a welcome boost, though, especially in the second half.

Thursday 23rd September, shave #266.
Only 99 days to go now!

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Palmolive
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: GC.68 OC, Wizamet SI #6
Post-shave: Nivea 2-Phase Lotion.

That was about as good as it gets. Alabaster-smooth face, good clean neck shave, and no irritation anywhere.

Either I'm having a winning streak with this razor, or I'm getting it properly dialled-in.
