Arko August 2019

Over a week of Arko shaves, head and face.
Dialed it in now, was going way too dry at the start.
Still a great soap.
It gets better the more days in a row you use it.

Had my 3rd Arko shave today...great face lather with my Fatip badger brush. Finished with Brut- Oceans aftershave splash, which actually isn't very summery oceanic as the name and blue color would imply,... it has a really awesome dirty earthy manly vetiver (almost Creed-like) scent after it dries.

Mid-Month Arko Shave
First shave with my timeless bronze razor. It's a beauty. I think this razor and Arko will be my daily shave kit for a long time.
 
Great shaves with Arko all week. No nicks or neck irritation. Tried my Pearl two piece razor today & got a close shave. I had not used the Pearl in a long while & was surprised at how good a razor it was.

Two mornings of so-so shaves almost had me dreading my shave today. Frederick Reynolds and Arko to the rescue! Used my favorite razor and made my lather more wet than recently. Wonderful shave today.

This August I've been using Proraso Blue, DR Harris Arlington, Marlboro, Windsor, MWF, Tabac, PannaCrema PURE2O Vetiver, Arko Blue cream, Palmolive Ice and Original cream and few more.

Why are you all using only Arko? :a9:

Because it's "Arko August 2019" and there are an additional 334 days in the year for all of the other soaps and creams.

Well I missed it and I'm jealous. I'll have to catch up with Tabactober. Or is there something planned for September?

Tabactober? I've never tried that one. Start it up and I'll be glad to join you if you'llhave me as a co-conspirator.

I have some Tabac that I've never used because I've been busy trying to 3017 so many of my other soaps. Tabactober would give me a chance to crack the seal on the jar.
