SOTD 14/07/2014

It's been a while since I had one of those real "back to basics" kind of shaves, rediscovering the wonder of it all when first starting out traditional shaving ...


Routine

Billy Jealousy White Knight
NuAge Men Shaving Oil
Ingram's Shaving Cream
Pure Badger 23mm
Merkur 23C - Bic Chrome [2]
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Shower
Pinaud Lilac Vegetal

Technique

Face Lathered
Two Pass - WTG & XTG

Impression

Using my Merkur 23C, the first double-edge razor that I bought, I set about two highly regimented passes over face lathered Ingram's shaving cream. I wanted to rekindle that feeling I had when I first started traditional shaving, taking time, care and really getting the most out of every stroke.

To be frank, it was not the closest shave I've had but certainly very enjoyable, absolutely irritation-free and with no cuts, nicks or weepers.

In all, a really good shave.
