SOTD "FREE WEEK" June 29th - July 5th, 2020



Happy 4th of July to all. Family's coming over for a barbecue and a swim. Expecting 17, so I’ll be keeping it short today. My Kamisori skills are improving. The LaResche 51 is a terrific razor. I really should shave with it more. VBBS on the dome and a DFS+ on the mug. A friend on another forum recommended the HiShave Moist Gel for the Kamisori and it made a difference. Face feels great after using it, and it really softened up the stubble so much that I felt I was brushing it off my face. Great stuff, the only downside is that it is not brush friendly. So that’s that. Cool, clean and velveteen, baby! Who could ask for more!
