SOTD "FREE WEEK" May 17th - May 23rd, 2021

Second Penn razor shave. Persona hair shaper injector blade second use pushed halfway into head, paa king r emporium soap and aftershave. With the blade pushed half in it doesn't look like it would be aggressive but it still has a fair amount of aggression. I had one or two small blood drops sealed themselves. BBS shave with two passes no irritation.

Prep: Noxzema
Soap: Stirling Satsuma
Brush: Vulfix Grosvenor mixed badger/boar
Razor: 1940s Gillette Super Speed, #1
Blade: Gillette 365, #2 and banked
Post: alum -> Dior Dune aftershave

First use of the Speed. Ordinarily, I'd start a new razor with an Astra SP, but I only had one use on the 365, so what the heck. Two passes plus a touch up for a DFS with minimal alum feedback. Not too shabby, but I look forward to throwing an Astra in there tomorrow night.

Nice soap with a good scent and easy to lather qualities producing a creamy and slick layer...had a great time face lathering with the nice brush!
Shave with razor paired with the blade was very smooth, comfortable, and enjoyable 3passes without any issues resulting in a mostly bbs result. Excellent aftershaves too.
