Two-day stubble + Slant-bar razor = BBS face

SOTD 21 Jan 2013

Today’s shave was exceptionally nice, starting with the lather: my new Omega 10029 Baby Pro boar brush did a very fine job: quick and creamy lather, with the brush holding plenty for the three passes. The brush will get better as it breaks in, but it’s already highly satisfactory.

I ordered some new Honeybee Soaps shaving soaps, and this Sandalwood Musk has a very nice fragrance—and the lather from Honeybee Soaps is always excellent. If you’re interested in a superb soap at a modest price, check out her site: good range of fragrances and pucks are $4.59.

The bakelite slant did its usual fine job, but the blade pulled just a little more than I expected, so at the end of the shave I removed the Gillette 7 O’Clock SharpEdge and put in a fresh Astra Keramik Platinum. So the next shave will be even better.

I love the feel of a super-smooth face, and a good splash of TOBS Sandalwood aftershave added to the pleasure.
