The set up for me this week is:

L'Occitane Verbena scented soap as a pre-shave
Open comb Gillette NEW, 1930ish
Crystal blade
Barbasol Brushless
Witch Hazel
Euphoria ASB

Foggy here in Houston and Christmas displays are everywhere. I find myself downloading Christmas music for the iPod.

This is the first time using this razor. I rescued it and a similar one for a buck each a while back. Both are copper and brass. Nasty looking then, but a long soak in some Simple Green dissolved the gunk and some Maas put a nice shine on them. A nephew has the other one. Have a good week everyone.

The Musgo real shaving cream is fantastic! The scent reminded me of a cross between speick and clubman, so I used the clubman AS for fun. At lunch today I will be running over (driving over, actually) to the caswell-massey and getting the musgo real aftershave...the scent of this one was amazing...talked myself out of it in the store, but have now talked myself into it after using the cream.

I've been struggling lately with painful shaves followed by a lot of irritation and bumps the next day if I try to get too close, so rather than going for the BBS look, I've been going for the "acceptably smooth" look, especially while my face heals a bit.

Call me crazy, but this was actually a very comfortable shave. Not the closest I've ever had, but no irritation at all. Heresy, you'll say, I'm sure :tongue:

Vintage 40s Super Speed w/ "Euro" Gillette, day 2
Proraso Green
Vulfix #403 Best

Booster "Polar Ice" AS

First time using Proraso, great cooling sensation and nice lather. I can see why it is so popular, esp. in the summer. I'm really beginning to like this Super Speed as well, they just don't make 'em like this anymore.

Also, to the Opus 1870 above: :001_tt1:

Paired with the B&B in horn, it's a sight to behold. If it could talk, it would've already convinced me into buying it a Maserati, and a house in the hills by now. :biggrin:

Great photo as well!
Thanks Jim. I'd like to say the warm fuzzy look was done on purpose, but it was more just a matter of poor lighting/flash/operator error/etc. :wink:

Should have stuck with the Atra today, I think the M3 was a little dull. I can't believe they suggest you use the cartrige until the blue line disappears.. ouch.

Had no problem getting good lather with the TJ's Mango SC. No it wasn't the same as Floris, but it was decent. Yes, you have to use more, but at the price, who cares.

I took a photo of this kit with my mobile-phone camera, so apologies in advance:

Pre-Shave: Hot shower, wash face w/Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Magic Soap . . .

Lather: GFT Cream, whip in my large Moss Scuttle with Kingsley boar-bristle brush; gradually adding water always does the trick . . .

Shave: Gillette Fusion, third shave w/blade cartridge; three passes--with, against, across grain; taking my time translates into very smooth results . . .

Post-Shave: Bello Bay Rum After-Shave from Dominica definitely wakes me up; BTW, has anyone in the US bought Floid recently? Finally . . .

Smelly Stuff: Floris Santal EDT; my 50 ml bottle has almost run-out, and I've liked it well enough to look forward to picking up 100 ml.

Tabac SS

4711 EdC


My first morning shave in quite some time...man, it really does start the day off right. The tabac, as usual, performed exceptionally well, and the Musgo real aftershave complimented it nicely. The 4711 is nice, but the scent, already short-lived at best, was completely overshadowed by the Musgo.

I'm fortunate in that I only have to do this 3 days a week, but regardless I never shave in the morning on days that I work for that very reason...it's too early!

Last night, though, I felt the urge to put my stuff out and sacrifice 20 minutes of sleep for a shave this morning. I'm glad I did and may make a habit of it.

Nicely done Bob. That looks like "Original formula" Milk. It's rare and hard to find.

Andrew,
Yes it is the old formula a/s milk,I was lucky to receive it from
a member at SMF who didn't care for it. Go figure.

Vulfix #403 w/ Floris JF cream (sample)
JF balm (sample)

Ouch. I hadn't used a Derby in awhile (going through my sampler pack) and wanted to try another one. I don't know if my poor shave had anything to do with the blade, but I got a lot of nicks. So far, I think my favorite blade is the "Euro" Gillette.

Nice mug!

Thank you. I scored it on E-bay. It is perhaps too small to actually whip the lather in it, so I use it mainly to soak the brush and let it sit for a few minutes.

Goose,

I see you are shaving with trumper's new formulation violet. How does it shave, how's the scent? Is it worth picking up a tub? Obviously, I'm intrigued by the violet but have been hesitant to pick up a tub because of all the reformulation talk. If you are using it, I would assume it still shaves rather well and is still enjoyable? Any comments you have on the new violet would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Scott

Woops, I just realized that your tub says "at" instead of "for" so it may be the old stuff. If it is the new, or if you have tried it/have any comments on it, that would still be appreciated. Thanks.

That tub is a couple of years old, its pretty good, a little sweet but works OK. I much prefer soaps.

First shave with my new Mergress! I have to sort out the best setting, but very nice shave, razor handle quite well. The blade was the Merkur that came with the razor - bit sharp for me, but overall very nice!
