Body Shop Unscented Shaving Cream -- added their Ylang Ylang Essential Oil to a tub to make it smell good;

Kingsley Boar-Bristle Brush -- doing some thinking before investing in a badger brush;

Gillette Fusion razor -- I still have lots of Sensor 3 disposables and Fusion cartridges before deciding on a straight or safety razor;

Rocky Mountain High-Exposure Sunscreen (SPF 50+) -- don't leave home without it on a sunny day; and

Floris Summer Limes -- regular sales at their New York location make it easy to indulge in something special without breaking the bank, as opposed to Penhaligon's, Trumper, or T&H.

Musgo Real Aftershave


Well, after a few days of using the guarded blades, I decided that I was an expert, and loaded in a Super Professional blade into the Feather. On my second pass, I gashed my chin something fierce; I have literally never yelped as I cut myself, in my entire shaving history. This thing is just too scary. I think once again I have proved to myself that I am not a str8 guy. If anyone has designs on this instrument of evil, drop me a PM.

Don't sell or trade it. Keep it and use the guarded blades. Nothing wrong with that. Or, ignore this and contact Sam. I think he is looking for another Feather.

This cake of soap is starting to get mighty thin. I'll sure miss it when it's gone! I only have one more- the sandalwood.
Gillette Fat Boy w/ Feather D2
EJ for C&E Super Badger
C&E Nomad SC
Thayer's Rose WH
C&E Nomad ASB

EDIT: FB dialed in at 6 today (4 yesterday). Results are better than yesterday, but not as good as my HD. The blade seemed to scrape more than usual...maybe I didn't have the best angle with the razor. Will try again tomorrow.
Shower: Molton Brown Black Pepper Re-Charge body wash, Baxters shampoo, Nancy Boy conditioner and face wash

Merkur slantbar with Euro-Gillette blade
SR3124 silvertip
Tabac soap
Thayers Rose Witch Hazel
C&E Sandalwood ASB

Acca Kappa Cedro cologne


After using creams almost exclusively for the past few weeks, I decided to go all hard-soaps this week. Yesterday was the fine Arlington soap for D.R. Harris, and today was Tabac. Awesome shave, but the scent is too heavy for warm weather. This one is going into hibernation for a while. Tomorrow, it is T&H soap - who will join me?

After being brutalized yesterday by that cad the Feather Artist Club, I decided to take it easy with the slantbar. :cool: . For those who haven't tried this razor with a Euro-Gillette, you are missing a treat.

*Does anybody else find that a PSO leaves their skin really sticky? I've tried several PSOs and find that my skin feels sticky while I shave... and I must say, I am not a fan of this feeling. Perhaps I'm just not a PSO guy...

*Absolutley love the limes. With that, the shave today was more irritating on the neck than yesterday. Will try again tomorrow.
Hello NMMB,

I suggest trying Pacific Shave Oil, which on the forums is called PSO. Absolutely zero stickiness, zero oilyness. Can even be used as a light moisturizer after the shave. Only a few drops needed. Many members use a few drops before the first pass; I use a few drops before every pass. My final T&C pass is done only with PSO and some water.

Zero irritation every time. You can buy direct at www.pacificshaving.com, or buy from Charles at www.qedusa.com next time you place an order.
