So I accomplished a small personal goal today, I went 1 month using a single blade. The first 26 days I can say that the Nacet was giving me good shaves. Around shave 27 I would say the blade felt much duller and I was having trouble getting the same quality shave without more passes and clean-up. Stuck with it just to get one month.

Cream: Captain’s Choice Nor’easter
Bowl: Captain’s Choice Ceramic
Blade: Gillette Nacet (31)

TWELFTH ANNUAL "One Blade in February" Challenge - 2021 Edition ?

Razor - Gillette Super Speed 1965 K4
Blade - Personna Red (3rd Shave)
Soap - Coles Bath Soap ($2.30 aud for 8 soaps - 800g)
Post - Tea Tree Witch Hazel
Moisturiser - HA serum
Balm - Prorasso Green Tea and Oat

Comments: Today I shave with probably the cheapest bath soap available in Australia. Hand lather like a shower shave where I'd typically do a bar soap shave. Did my usual skin care routine to save the face. Blade obviously getting duller, I think it might have been the 4th shave on it, got some blood...

Razor: iKon X3 slant on bulldog handle, #6
Blade: Wizamet Super Iridium, #1
Post: Alum -> hyaluronic acid-> Fine Fresh Vetiver aftershave

What a comeback from the "meh" shave on Friday and a great way to close out the week. An easy, two-pass, zero-alum-feedback DFS. First use of Fine products and I am very impressed. Super-slick, great scent, and a refreshing aftershave.
