SOTD : Saturday 20th - Friday 26th July


Soap - Proraso Green
Brush - Yaqi Rainbow
Razor - Ball End Tech
Blade - Gillette Nacet (3)
Post - Witch Hazel
AS - Old Spice (Indian Version)

After seeing @Blademonkey using one soap for one month, I decided to do a similar thing myself. Not for a month though, but a week! Ok, that's not the most extreme commitment but if I manage to use just one soap for a week as I generally change every day then it could be a way to actually use some up soap! I went for Proraso Green, as the last time I used it I had a poor lather even though it's the soap I have owned for the longest.

A good lather today and a superb shave, one of the ones where there wasn't even the slightest bit of resistance towards the blade/razor. Went for the neglected bottle of Indian Old Spice which is nice, makes a change from the usual splashes I tend to go for.

Anyway chaps, I hope you have a good Saturday.
