No shave yesterday...had to rise very early and take my bride for a procedure at the hospital. All came out good, thanks be to God. This morning's shave was stellar. Karve OC mowed down the two days of growth like a John Deere through a field of wheat...or something like that. DFS/BBS bloodless and injury free result. Pinaud Clubman Classic Barber Shave Cream is the new pre-shave product. Works a bit better than the OPR actually although I miss that convenient pump. Hmmm...there's a decision waiting to happen. Something smells good in here...it's two kid astronauts paddling through a lake of Eggnog infused Bay Rum! How does PAA come up with these things?
Happy Shaves, Everyone!
