Tuesday August 9 - a bit "Fancy" but not very

Razor: Supply 2.0 matte black with SE comb plate / Supply Black Label (17)
Brush: Simpsons Chubby 2 Synthetic
Soap: MWF
Post: Osma alum, rinse, Portland General Store black willow bark toner

My last shave was last Tuesday, so exactly a week worth of stubble to mow. As usual, one pass did it. That at least gets me to a Socially Acceptable Shave of looking reasonably neatly clean shaven, which is all I need right now.

The blade is still doing fine. No complaints at all from the alum.

It is hot and muggy here, which always gives me a problem with skin oil and a bit of an acne flare-up. The PGS willow toner with its salicylic acid is just the ticket for that. I shaved after showering, then after my shave, I used a cotton pad to apply the toner not just to the area I shaved but to my entire face, chest and shoulders. Problem solved.

PGS made good all-natural products -- the toner and also an alpine-scented shave jelly that was quite nice. Pity they went out of business during the pandemic...

Hope everyone has a good week!
Copper is what I fancy. Love the beauty and feel of it. The old charcoal goods design are favorites.

Have some great shaves!

I had a great shave
I let my brush soak and soap bloom as I took my shower. The pre shave oil helped lock in moisture as I lathered in my bowl. The Yaqi DLC and Gillette Platinum made short work of my 21 hr stubble. I had a 1.5 pass shave with lots of buffing my face, my neck got one cautious pass I didn’t go for bbs. The splash smells great and I’ve got the same body lotion to compliment the scent after it begins to wear off.
