Here’s my opener:

Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/7 AM day 5
Vi John SC
Nip Man ASB
Groom AS Splash

Thank goodness I have nothing to do and nowhere to go so I don’t have to be fancy. This Vi John is a very lekker cream which Mo sent me - the scent is really nice, the lather is so easy to work up, and it’s made with tea tree oil to promote healthy, glowing skin. The Nip Man balm leaves a very comfortable, cool postshave feeling, and the Groom aftershave smells great - by the way, it’s made right here in Montreal along with the matching soap!

Hi all,

My shave today was with Proraso Blue shave cream and aftershave. Great lather and scent. Proraso vlue has very unique scent. People say it smell like a wine cork.

My first shave for November went great - the Vi John cream is a favorite of Indian barbers because it’s so easy to lather, it’s old school scent is very nice, and it feels so good on the skin. The Nip Man balm gave me a lot of moisturizing as well as soothing, and the Groom aftershave (Canadian pride!) finished the job. All I needed were two passes and I ended up smoother than silk!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Gibbs / Personna Med Prep
Rubberset 400
Gillys - Lush Life
Prep

This handle and knob arrived yesterday for some repairs and tweaks. Both are
made of Stainless steel so it has some weight to it.

Of-course, I had to take it for a test drive to ensure that it all works as
it should before its journey back to the land of the free!

Saturday morning:

Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/7 AM day 6
Stirling Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo SS
Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
Osage Rub AS Splash
Quorum EdT

After no menthol for two days it was time for me to go all out with it this morning and that’s what I did. Stirling’s mentholated pre-shave soap is pretty much unscented, it leaves the skin spotlessly clean, it gives great slickness, and it’s quite cooling. The Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo soap has that magnificent Green Irish Tweed scent, the lather it gives is so rich, it’s a gold mine of slickness, and the menthol sensation is Siberian cold. The Glacial Unscented balm packs a damned frigid punch and does such a wonderful job of moisturizing the skin, not to mention how it protects against irritation or razor burn. The Osage Rub aka the Rubby Dubby Doo is killer cold. Three passes gave me a brilliant BBS shave!Image
