Rooney Emilion, QED Vanilla shave stick, Fatip Testina Gentile, and Floïd

I really liked QED’s old shave sticks—haven’t tried the newer ones—and this Vanilla shave stick is very nice indeed. I couldn’t really see any soap on my stubble after rubbing the stick against the grain all over my beard: the soap is a brownish color and when rubbed off it’s about the color of my skin. But then once I wet the Rooney’s knot and began brushing, the lather came forth, and a very nice lather it was, too. I had to add a bit more water and work it in, but then the consistency was perfect.

I continue to praise Fatip’s Testina Gentile as a really excellent razor. Three passes produced a perfectly smooth finish, and a splash of Floïd aftershave finished the job.

Today I’m packing the aftershaves so less variety the remainder of the week.
