Fri 16th #5TabacOCtober#12 SOTD Soap Tabac Brush Yaqi 26mm Rainbow Razor RazoRock SLOC DOC Blade Gillette London Bridge 5th Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Aqua Velva Musk
Thick creamy and slick lather from the soap.
Shave with razor paired with blade was very good. Smooth and comfortable. Blade is still good and sharpish
3+1 pass with no issues. Not very efficient though. DFS result. Good post and aftershave. Rating 9/10
This morning’s shave was uninterrupted by the two little hooligans from yesterday - my gyoungest grandson, Nate, and his running buddy when visiting, my dachshund, Gromit. Old G-Pop‘s been outsmarting grandchildren for almost two decades. I simply kept the little bugger up way past his usual bedtime last night watching Toy Story until he fell asleep. For this morning’s shave, I selected the Genco 35, the second straight I ever shaved with. A run on the pasted and leather strops last night ensured a smooth and comfortable three pass (WTG, ATG, XTG) shave this morning. I made sure to play this morning’s shave music - Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor - through my hearing aids so as to not push my luck and have my shave interrupted like yesterday. JR’s #343 brush whipped up a pleasantly cooling lather. My long-neglected MMOC delivered a spectacular two pass (ATG, ATG) dome shave. I feel cool, clean and velveteen!
