First shave of 2008

leave a comment »

I did give a little thought to it. Taylor of Old Bond Street Avocado shaving cream, a favorite. And the Rooney Style 2 Finest, of course. And, since I haven’t used it for a while, the Merkur Vision with a new Treet Blue Special blade.

Very nice shave, though I see that the Vision needs disassembly and cleaning: it’s become hard to adjust.

I finished with Booster Lilac aftershave.

And, on the subject of shaving, I was pleased to find this new review of the Guide to Gourmet Shaving, posted on 30 December:

I bought this as a gift for my fiancé, along with a wet-shaving starting kit and a safety razor. He DEVOURED this book, and finds himself reading it again and again. He finally enjoys shaving. This book has helped him figure out so many things about wet shaving, and has recommended it to all of his friends and family.

Truly a great source of information for any man.

A good start for the new year.
