"Christmas Eve Shave"

One more day before the big fella with the white beard, delivers my Christmas shaving goodies in my stocking.....'The Christmas period always brings the kid out in me with bittersweet memories, and to be truthfully honest I don't do Christmas anymore. I know for some people it's full of joy and plenty, especially for children, yet for some it's not so nice..

However, as they say in my neck of the woods 'I'll put a face on' for the festive season so I don't spoil it for the people who still enjoy it, and most importantly for those who still think Santa Claus is the real deal, which is something that should never be spoilt as for a child it's the most magical best feeling in the world. I remember it well...

A wonderful Christmas eve shave with some of my favourite old, and infrequently used wet shaving assortments.

Tomorrow I'll be venturing out to the family gathering to prepare the Christmas dinner, 'My multi tasking-skills come in useful at certain times' and take part in the festive activities, then later in the evening I'll be catching up on some relaxation and well earned rest.

Finishing the shave off a with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

Keep safe and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
