❄️🌧️366 Shaves 2024☀️🍁

I will give it a try. I may have some downtime in late January or early February due to a possible knee surgery, but I plan to shave every day. I have enough Bic Chrome Platinum blades for the upcoming year. My KCG razor is still good. I will have to replace soap, witch hazel, and alum as needed.

One more day of 2023 then we're into the year with 366 shaves. Reminder that shaving daily need not correspond directly with posting daily. Shaving daily is a better habit than posting daily and I for one will be weaning myself of the latter habit this year. Probably posting once a week. See you in 366 land next week.

That is good to know, I shave as soon as I wake up, and then I start my day and post later in the day. Sometimes I just forget to post, as my day goes on and on and on...

+2! Great reminder!! The key is shaving daily (at least IMHO)!!
 
Well
Gentelman, I wish you all a Happy New Year, 366 smooth and nick free shaves.

I signed up last year but ended up having to skip one day on doctors orders because of a rash, so I'm not sure if that gave me a wildcard and made me pass.

If it didn't, I'd like to reinlist for 2024!
My best wishes to all participants, shave on!

To me that would still be all right but @Leverspro starts these threads he might have some guidelines. That is still amazing 364 days of continuous daily shaving. Next time if it bothers you could just shave a small area of your face where rash might not be! Post #1 tells me you made it to 365 because of sickness, the guidelines are there if I interpreted them correct.

And 2024 is off to a great shaving start. Smooth shave this morning with an Astra SP blade housed in my Rockwell T2 SS razor. Using a Merkur Futur Silvertip Badger brush, I lathered up some PAA Porthos shaving soap in a marble Beau Brummell bowl. A great lather quickly formed and applied to my face. The razor and blade took the day's growth down quickly with a WTG and then a ATG pass. After a rinse and feel of the face, I did a few touch up areas and another rinse before applying Aramis aftershave.
