Shower: Stirling Executive Man bar soap
Preshave: PAA Cube 2.0
Razor: Pearl Flexi set on 1
Blade: Lazer Ultra, day 1
Soap: Hoffman's Burn the Ships
Brush: AP G5C
Bowl: Timeless
Post shave: Cold rinse, alum, cold rinse
Aftershave: Hoffman's Burn the Ships
Balm: Nivea Sensitive

Pretty good shave today because I set the Flexi on 1, so no nicks and the alum didn't really even burn. What did burn was around my eyes with the aftershave - not even places I shaved, yet I had a burning sensation around the outside edges of my eyes. Never had that before. This is the first time Burn the Ships aftershave, so maybe there's something in that I'm sensitive to.

I still have to post the "MOAMC", mother of all mail calls, and I have a number of new razors to try over the coming days: Another Game Changer (this time .68), a Tatara Masamune, and a Rex Ambassador. I'll try those in the coming days as I get more experience under my belt.

This morning I took a walk rather than work out. Got some heavy stuff on my mind and I felt it was a good way to turn off stuff around me, talk to God, and listen. It was satisfying, highly recommend.

Have a great day, thanks for reading!
