What A Shave

Trumper's Skin Food (pre-post)
Truefitt & Hill Trafalgar
Savile Row SR23
Merkur Progress/Israeli Personna
Thayers Witch Hazel
Trumper's Skye EDT

Since I shaved Sunday evening, I didn't shave yesterday morning, so I had a slightly longer than normal beard to mow off this morning. I decided to really change-up the routine this morning and broke out the Trafalgar and my small brush. Now, usually T&H lathers just a bit thinner than other creams, but this morning the Shaving Gods smiled and rewarded me with a wonderful gob on the little brush. I felt so confident that I pipped the Progress up a bit: I usually dial 2.5/3/3.5 for my 1st/2nd/3rd passes but this time I went 3/3.5/4. Man, what a clean, close, "faceterbatable" shave!!
