SOTD 18/07/2014

Friday night, and I'm drinking some rather nice root beer from Boylan's of Teterboro, New Jersey ... seemed only right to partner it with some Club Cola & Bay Rum.


Routine

Bulldog Facial Scrub
Wickham's Super Smooth Club Cola
Kent Infinity Silvertex
Valet VC4 - Valet (Vintage) [1]
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Alum Wash
Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum

Technique

Face Lathered
Two Pass - WTG & XTG

Impression

Sort of a goodbye shave with my lovely Army & Navy Stores Valet VC4 which I have up for sale, just in case it sells. Very nice.

The aroma from the soap was just right, great soap, lovely lather, good slip and left my skin feeling really good.

The blade is carbon steel and noticeably firmer than modern Feathers or de-spined GEMs and seemed to need a slightly steeper angle than usual. Smooth as they come, this could not have been nicer.

Cracking shave!
