Same travel set-up. Final shave before I jet home. Whilst Arlington is a nice cologne and a safe bet when traveling, I'm looking forward to my return, as a few new additions may just be awaiting ;).

Brush: Frank Shaving 20mm Best Badger
Cream: Edwin Jagger Limes & Pomegranate
Razor: Parker 99R
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum (4)

A wholly unexceptional shave, in the best possible way. I've missed the jaffa cake-y aroma of this cream.

I thought yesterday that this blade might be tiring, but shave four (for the edge - it could be argued that it's equivalent to #8 for the blade) has been great. I'm stroking my chin far more often than is seemly for a man of my age (fortunately I'm usually first in the office by some distance, so no-one has to witness this).

Happy shaving!

A little bit of an Alum sting today...I suspect due to the blade. The Titans can only manage 2 shaves for me and are not the smoothest blade in my collection.

Pre: Shower & Savon du Midi - vanilla soap
Razor: Merkur Progress 500 setting 1,75
Blade: Feather (3)
Brush: Yaqi 24mm synthetic
Soap: NSS Signature - Moroccan Sands
Post: Humphrey's Witchhazel, Aloe Vera gel, 10 minutes later Bulldog moisturisier

First time that I've tried aloe gel as post shave. After a little prickling sensation it soothes the skin. Seems to work nicely, so I will use it some more and see if my skin agrees with it.

Fine Platinum after shave

Nice relaxing shave this morning. Like others, I continue to be impressed by the Salter solid soap for performance and price.

I’m in a quandary as to replace the Platinum with more of the same. But the Vetiver ones look tempting; as does the American Blend. Decisions...
