    Thumbs up Sun July 03rd - Sat July 09th

    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: SR Droescher Black Devil
    Brush: Simpson PJ3
    Cream: Proraso
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    AS: Aqua Velva
    ASG: 444
    Summary: Today was brutal with temps over 110F. I needed something cooling so decided on using some proraso, followed up with a mix of 444 after shave gel and aqua velva. Talk about refreshing and cooling. Not only was I BBS but my face felt so smooth and refreshed. Definitely a combo I'll use more often during those hot summer days.
    Wishing everyone an excellent upcoming 4th of July. Two thumbs up for all the great posts I see, day in, day out.

    Mysore sandalwood soap
    Mekur 34 C-HD
    Gillette super thin
    New Forest Tubby 1
    TOBS Sandalwood cream
    Alum Block
    TOBS Sandalwood Balm + Propolis
    TOBS Sandalwood Eau de cologne

    Well a overdose of Sandalwood never did anyone any harm, as I have already stated in a past shave of the day, no one sit's on the fence regarding sandalwood, the jury doesn't have to retire to give you it's answer, they instanly love it or hate it, well weather looks good so I popped out early with my old Wirehaired Fox Terrier Blue now aged 14 to pick up the papers, mainly for my Wife as I rarely read the papers any more and I haven't purchased a daily paper for more than 8 years, I prefer to do it online for free, you can also be more selective in what you read that's the beauty of the net, great shave two pass with normal little touch up I smell wonderful

    I shaved last evening because the warden would not go to dinner with me with three days stubble. I had to shave fast so out came the DE.
    Hot Shower
    Warm Oil
    Dirty Bird Scuttle
    New Forest Badger
    Castle Forbes
    1959 Fat Boy Wilkinson blade
    Pinaud Bay Rum
    Vaseline for men

    What can you say about Castle Forbes Shave cream except fantastic. The aroma, cushion, thickness, glide and texture is just fantastic. the Fat boy does a nice job for me set on 5. I only use the DE blades once so they perform well.

    Overall, nice quick shave.
