*Felt lazy this morning, so I opted for gel.
Problem is, of course, you can't tell where
you've shaved. So it means extended clean-up,
lest I emerge with a DREADED OLD MAN'S SHAVE,
with little patches of missed whiskers. As a result,
I don't think I shaved a minute off my regular shave time.

Still ain't no such thing as a free lunch--
even when shaving!

Stay healthy, everyone!

Have some great shaves! Stay & think safe in these times!
 
Valentine's shave

I treated myself with one of my most favourite soaps - B&M Hallows

I don't know if the combination of a soap dedicated to Halloween and the evening of a supposedly romantic night is right or not, but since I'm single it's of little consequence.

Excellent shave and I'm mustering enough bravery to subject my precious soaps to a boar brush, and it was a pleasant experience.
