Weekend relaxing shave.

Cold water rinse.
Disco shavette (push type).
Park avenue synthetic brush.
Vicco shaving cream with sandalwood oil.
Nature's Tattva witch hazel.
Suthol aftershave.

Three pass + touch ups around chin and jawline = BBS
Slight irritation around chin.


The shavette was sourced from a local barber shop.
It's light weight and just works perfectly for me.



Pre: Hot Shower and Grooming Dept Pre Shave
Soap: Haslinger Sheep's Milk
Brush: Rick Montalvo with a Peter Wolf Synthetic Knot
Razor: Schone by FaTip
Blade: Bolzano Inox (1st use)
Post: Alum, Dickinson's Witch Hazel and Grooming Dept Rejuvinating Serum
Fragrance: Viking by Creed

6.5/10 Everything was going great until the second and third pass on my upper lip and I was left with four to six small weepers/nicks. Not sure if it was the blade or if I was sloppy with my technique. The Schone amazes me as it can truly be a super smooth shaver, but when not respected can bite the crap out of you :letterk1::ouch1:. Respect the Schone / FaTip!
