SOTD "FREE WEEK" November 23rd - November 29th, 2020

Sunday shave


Prep: Neutrogena Razor Defense face scrub
Cream: Cyril R. Salter Wild Rose
Brush: Century Pure Badger
Razor: Wilkinson Sword TTO, shave #2
Blade: Astra SP (#4)
Post: Alum -> hyaluronic acid-> Gillette Cool Wave aftershave

Another late night last night, so put off the shave until tonight. Two-pass DFS on my cheeks, CCS on my neck. Some feedback from the alum, which I attribute to not having enough water in my lather on the first pass and, more so, a bit too much pressure when shaving. I wasn't really thinking about pressure until after the fact and I'll fix that oversight tomorrow. Given the above, some feedback from the alum.
