Late father in law's 1953 Super Speed
Thayer's rose witch hazel

Ej 89 (as its my only razor right now)
personna blade
proraso pre shave
proraso green

and now I'm feeling refreshed as it was 10 min ago
Synthetic badger from TGN in my father's Surrey handle
Body Shop Shave Cream, <2009 formula, laced w. KMF fragrance free, bowl lathered
Schick twin blade disposable w. sliding plastic cap/top plate (1st pass)
Schick Krona w. 7 o'clock yellow (2nd pass +touch-up)
Target witch hazel
Nivea Sensitive ASB

About 44 hrs. since previous shave, so I started with the twin blade disposable for a quick mow-down first pass. Then grabbed the Krona
as it was already loaded with a blade. Stopped at DFS to save time and because going for BBS can lead to too many weepers. Mostly
grabbed what was readily available, rather than open a new pack of blades and load a razor.

DFS was just fine for getting me through the evening.
Fabulous to say the least:

* Hot flannel soak
* Castle Forbes Pre Shave
* Thiers-Issard horn brush
* Pils 101NE
* Iridium super
* Castle Forbes Limes
* Alum block
* new Simpson Shave Balm
* Lubin Le Vetiver
