I felt bad after finishing all 21 'Ben Hope' action thrillers by Scott Mariani (shite nonsense but great summer dumb reading) and then I discovered the Agent Pendergast books by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child and all is well with the world again...there no so dumb but still great page-turners. But then I had that shave yesterday with the 7'o'clock and I temporarily lost faith...and then came todays SOTD that restoreth my faith.Please don’t start, I’m too old for that bloody shit. I blame Covid19 for keeping me busy reading, otherwise, hurry up with the bloody vaccine before we ALL go crazy.
It is almost the absolute best at everything and, for the price, it is the best at everything IMHO.View attachment 58703
Prep - facial scrub
razor - Schick I1
blade - Schick twin vintage (3)
soap - Proraso green
brush - Semogue mixed badger and boar LE
post - witch hazel
a/s - Floid Mentally Vigorous
balm - Floid.
The very first soap I bought myself - sure - it isn't the absolute best at anything - it doesn't contain unicorn tallow or Peruvian spider's silk extract - but at the price it doesn't have to. It works just fine. Have a good week - I.
Love that razor...definitely on my wish listSOTD 26/8/20

3 pass shave leaving a great finish. The Fatboy is still holidaying in Northern Ireland and loves it here, although he says the weather is.....well I’ll not repeat it, but he's right . I've enjoyed using the razor all the same.
This shave just about finishes my first ever purchase when starting to wet shave. The tube of Proraso. I'll get another one to replace it as a reminder of where it all started.
Have a good night one and all.
