First try at MITA
Loved the face freeze and citronella.
Formed a great slick lather. Better than the Proraso green cream I reckon.

Rex Envoy, GSB
One pass with touch ups
No alum this time (no need)
Followed up by Snakebite
Hyalauronic acid
Myrsol emulsion

Then a nice dander in the breeze to the post office. Love being out in the cold after a menthol hit

20 August 2020 – mid afternoon – after cycling and gardening ….
2 days' growth – took out my new Wilkinson Classic budget razor and I must say it’s quite good, result more or less same as with the Muehle R89. Of course … having been pleased with myself I then cut myself, nothing to do with the razor or blade, just being careless but nothing cold water and alum couldn’t deal with.
Prep: Aldi Bath Soap & Nuage Shave Oil
Brush: Yaqi Rainbow 26mm
Razor: Wilkinson Sword Classic
Blade: Wilkinson Sword supplied with razor
Soap: Proraso Blue cream
After: Cold Water Splash - Ajanta Alum - Autograph ASB
