    Default Sunday

    Well, my hobby is wet-shaving.
    I have a bunch of new stuff I decided to try in this Sundays shave.
    Hot shower. Musgo Real Glycerin Lime Oil Soap. This soap left my face relaxed, moisturized and ready for the shave.
    The Shave:
    Grabbed my Semogue 2000 boar brush that I've been using exclusively for the last weeks and used a small amount of the Top Secret shaving cream. This scent is fantastic, but I really can't describe it. It smeels of a blend of lovely floral/woodsy scents.
    I picked up my freshly honed Johann Briedohr «Breidora» straight razor to try it out. It has some spots on the blade as you can see, but the edge got wicked sharp and buttery smooth. Now I see why the «Les 3 Croix» razors from J. Breidohr are sold at such high prices.
    One pass WTG, the second one XTG was enough for BBS.
    Musgo Real After Shave Balsam. It smells great and soothes the skin leaving it in great shave.

    What a way to start a Sunday!
