One Blade In Fruity February

Tonight’s decadent shave
RazoRock JAWS 0.84 on PAA el Fantasma handle
Loi Titanium (5)
Damp facecloth aka “shave binky”
AP ShaveCo Dinosaur G5C 28mm synthetic brush
Pre-shave: warm shower
Lather: ARKO!, bowl-loaded; face-lathered
Aftershave: Ulm Nom
Post-shave: face wash with shave binky
Post-shave: mentholated Equate moisturizer

Showered before my shave tonight. Haven’t done that in a while. Threw me off the rest of my routine, but lots of whiskers melted away, so maybe this is good. The lemony awesomeness of the ARKO! reminded me of the yuzu lemon desserts my family shared with me today and that was very nice.

Behind in my posting again. So ridiculously busy. Traveling in UT right now. But got an excellent shave before I left! This one is from Sat 2/3.

Passiflora Splash

It’s Fruity February! And this shave was about as fruity as it gets! The soap has a super strong Hawaiian Punch aroma. And the splash is a high dose of Passion Fruit that lingers for a very long time post shave.

Last night’s pleasant shave

Aftershave: Aqua Velva
Post-shave: warm shower
Post-shave: mentholated Equate moisturizer

Baxk to shaving before showering. Whiskers didn’t feel like they were melting away, but shave felt comfortable. Started shallow, but it felt tedious and kept missing whiskers. Neutral felt and worked better. Will see what the neutral angle and showering beforehand does next time. Arko! still exuding lemony notes of victory along with providing a slick lather.

Went shallower than neutral because I wanted to try something. Will need to keep trying, but the post-shower shave helped the stubble cut a skosh easier. Closeness varied.

That “melting away” feeling from shaving after a shower with the razor at a neutral angle is becoming addicting. Managed to knick my upper lip in one spot, but everywhere was comfortable if not capillary close. No aftershave sting. Also, used the razor with its stock RazoRock barber pole handle and the world didn’t end so there’s that.

First use of tallow cherry almond Cella was great. Blade was dull. New blade for next time. ARKO! for next time.

● Calani ~ Oriental Plum shaving soap

Oriental Plum is a lovely, spicy plum scent. The scent is way more sophisticated and refined than A&E's take on the theme, Asian plum.

Unfortunately, Calani went out of business some time ago. It's been good stuff. Sigh.

I can't commit to a full Fruity Feb, but being that it was a gorgeous almost spring day in New England today's shave of B&M Atomic Holiday / Chiseled Face Summer Storm was indeed fruity
