The Grosvenor [ Vulfix 404 ] mixed
Vitos Super red
Occams V2-No2 plate
Schick Proline [ 4 &5 ]
Jaguar Prestige A/S Lotion

A long day out yesterday so though I shaved no Report. However as the Shave went so well I decided to do a leisurely Sunday Morning repeat. The Occams is proving to be an excellent Razor for me, with quite small hands I find that the odd looking handle offers a range of variable grips which makes the Razor very manouvrreable. Both Shaves were smooth and comfortable with finish quality that matches the best I get from other AC/SE Razors. In fact I would say that as a light Razor it beats both the Alu. General and Hawk in terms of performance.

Looking forward to a lovely shower and shave after getting all the chores done. It has been stinky hot and today was cooler but still hot. Love the slow simmer of Summer though so can’t complain too much. The iKon Deluxe OC was sitting in the stand and readily at hand and so it was christened King of the Shave. Loaded up with a Personna Lab Blue and ready to go.

Soap of the day CBL Ghost Pineapple so very good and even Mrs. Somnos was thoroughly impressed with the scent. Performance is phenomenal and remember to load a little to shave a lot. I have and do recommend CBL Soaps to anyone looking for a premium tallow based soap and no, he owes me nothing however, I owe him a debt of gratitude for not only being a true artisan but a stand up guy. Keeping cranking them out Chris!

Lathered up a storm and proceeded to get through a lovely two pass DFS! The menthol in this soap is a nice touch. Finished up with some Stirling Weekend in Malibu AS and a quick spritz of English Laundry Tahitian Waters EDP. Perfect!

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday. Time to crank up the grill and get our BBQ on! Take care all and happy shaves!

Proraso Green Pre-shave cream
ES Medium Jock synthetic
OSP Barbershop cream
ES Claymore V1 / Schick Proline (1)
Thayers Cucumber / Epsilon blue aftershave / Bart’s Balm Peppermint

A lovely cold water shave this evening which has left my face ice cold.

I’ve been overlooking my SE razors recently and decided to bring out the Claymore tonight. Loaded with a fresh Schick Proline Blade it performed faultlessly. A great 3 pass routine with no irritation or incidents.

My face is as smooth as glass and feels like I’ve walked out a warm house into a cold winter morning! Love it.

Have a great evening folks and enjoy the week ahead.

By the way, how do I resize photos taken on my iPhone? I’m trying to upload them via the web but it keeps saying the file is too big. Is Tapatalk going to be working again?
