    Thumbs up Sun October 28th - Sat November 03rd

    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: The Baltic Cutlery Co.
    Brush: Simpson PJ3
    Cream: GFT Sandalwood
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    AS: Mundus Citrus & Sandalwood
    EDC: Mundus Citrus & Sandalwood

    Nothing to really complain about. A truly zen shave with lots of nourishing products. Both the Mundus AS and Cologne have lots of goodies for the skin. The Cologne is actually more a nourishing skin booster as opposed to a fragrance cologne as we all know it. It's got JoJoba, sweet almond and a blend of other essential oils. The AS is made from witch hazel, aloe vera, glycerin, calendula, willow bark extract and a blend of other essential oils. If all this doesn't make you look 10 years younger in the long run, then I'm lost for words.

    Gents, the last week of October! Let's rock. Wishing y'all a great one.

    Razor – Thiers Issard 69 frameback, w/ spare blade
    Brush – Chubby#2
    Soap – MWF with glycerin pre-soak
    AST – ALUM & Thayers witch hazel lemon
    AS – GFt Limes & GFT skinfood limes

    Both blades were honed at the same time on this rig. The spare blade fits in a side pocket inside the box. I had to re-hone without tape to get the shave I like. She rocks now. Have a great week gents.
