Monday, March 30th


Pre: warm shower
Brush: RazoRock 400 Noir 24mm
Soap: RazoRock Blue Label
Razor: Gillette Slim Adjustable I1 (1963)
Blade: Derby Extra (3)
Post: cold water rinse, witch hazel, shave balm
AS: Brut

It was my first time using the Blue Label. It has a pleasant aroma that is not over powering. The aroma does not linger. Sorry, I am terrible at describing smells. It needs lots of water to get a good lather. The Plissoft knot may not be the best for hard soaps, but it worked well. Overall, a pleasant shave.
