Senior Moment
I forget that it's Saturday elsewhere lol.

Tonight's shave:


Cremo sandalwood.

Lineup the inside of goatee with Parker SRX, Big Ben blade, rest of shave with UK tech, SuperMax Blue Diamond (6), Parker synthetic, Hanae Mori aftershave (gotta smell good for Valentines day you know :wink: )

2 Passes, Cremo is not my favorite, I have just never tried it with a brush instead of straight on the face followed by a cartridge (which is actually a very decent shave), or once on the road, straight to the face then DE.

Wouldn't recommend Cremo with a DE, with or without brush. I found it actually unpleasant without a brush, and acceptable with.


Pre-shave:- Argan Oil soap
Bowl/Scuttle:- Taylors Almond Cream
ush:- Synthetic
Soap/Cream:- Taylors
Razor/Blade:- Wilkinson Classic and Wilkinson 7 o’clock (2) First pass, then put the blade in a Wilkinson TTO
Post/After-shave: Cocoa Butter and night cream mix
Fragrance:- Lacoste

2nd and very simple shave with Wilkinson Classic and 7 o’clock. Not a fan of the Gillette 7 o’clock permasharp, I find it just plain rough but useable in the Wilkinson Classic, as I have this blade as a pack of 10 I am going to persevere with them, but this blade is getting thrown today.
Taylors Almond Shaving Cream is perfect,
