Saturday night shave


Pre: Ivory in the shower
Soap: MdC Fougere
Brush: RazoRock chrome Plissoft
Razor: Gillette N2 1968 Slim, setting 7
Blade: Astra SP (#5 and banked)
Post: Alum followed by Brut aftershave

In spite of the fifth use of the blade tonight, and even with a hint of redness on my neck which I attribute to that fifth use on two days' growth, this was a really enjoyable shave. First shave on setting seven and I think I had the angle down a bit better than Thursday's shave. In any event, hardly a peep from the alum--even with that red spot on my neck.


Earlier on Saturday

‘62 Tech
Astra SP (9)
Omega Boar
TOBS Mr. Taylor’s
Pinaud AS

Ah fantastic shave today.
Maximum closeness and comfort.
I’m glad I used this scent of Taylor’s again... it smells awesome. I’m always going to use it in my rotation. No minimalist tendency there. The blade was at the end of its life so I tossed it. Reloaded the Tech with an Astra SS. I am quite pleased and face is quite smooth.😌😌😌 1E1A7E6A-96FF-4B64-9E6A-458DD68D81E2.jpeg

Excellent lather from brush and soap combination. Nice scent, densely creamy and slick.
Shave with razor paired with blade was good. Sharpish, smooth and comfortable for 3+1 passes. BBS results!
Great post & aftershave. Rating 9.7/10
