SOTD 01/12/2013

After a not so great shave on Friday involving a Personna injector and finished up with a 1912 Ever Ready, I gave my face a brief break. Stubble back with a vengeance, I couldn't stand it, so ...


Routine

Hot Rinse
Olive Oil Blend PSO
NSS Ice & Slice
Pure Badget Brush
GEM Micromatic/Personna [1]
Merkur 23C/Gillette 7 O'Clock Sharp Edge [1]
Hot Rinse
Cold Rinse
Alum Wash
Cold Rinse
Brut Original Aftershave Lotion

Technique

WTG - PAL Micromatic/Personna
WTG/XTG/Polishing - Merkur 23C/Gillette Sharp Edge

Impression

Trying another injector, I went with a single with the grain pass. Better, today, but still falling short of what I would have expected from a DE single pass with any number of blades I use.

I switched, made another with the grain pass followed by a cross the grain using my Merkur 23C and a fresh Gillette yellow.

Lovely job. The Gillette blade was smooth, sharp and without issue. I really enjoyed it!

Brut Aftershave ... Sorted!
