Well the road trip comes to an end and we have time to squeeze in one more shave as we pack up the gear and roll it home. The Timeless SS OC .95 was great on Wednesday so I decided to follow it up with the 34G. I know, 2 razors on a road trip? Yup!

The Palmolive shave stick is a great travel buddy and does the job pretty well. Much smaller than a comparable Tabac shave stick and quite a bit more affordable. Sad they are no longer being produced in the UK...(tear). Fresh out the shower and with a warm towel on the face and the Palmolive SS just glides on. The Yaqi SF whipped it all up into a nice lather which was more than enough for a three pass shave.

Smooth, smooth and smooth! Finished it off with some Nivea balm and we are good to go. Packed up, checked out and released the crew. Time for some breakfast and home to Villa Somnos! Take care, safe travels and happy shaves all!

Simpson Chubby 1 / Maggards 2Band
EJ Cool Menthol cream
Schick N3
Schick Twin - Japan [ 12 ]
Alcolado Glacial A/S Splash

Used a cream for a change [ borrowed from son], nice that the tingle and scent stays throughout the Shave. The N3 was very smooth and as usual delivered a nice close all round shave without fuss. Topped the Shave off with a cool Splash, just a shame the sun has gone away today.
