Much thanks to my pal on The Shaving Room forums for his generous gift of a tin of Simpsons - I really like the scent which, to my nose, is practically all vetiver with just the briefest hint of lavender. Just perfect for me! Cheers!

As a cream, a little goes a long way ... a VERY little goes a LONG way!

Today, a first pass with a straight which went well, so I went with a second pass again with the grain. I almost could have left it at that but polished up with a backup safety razor, a Valet VC1, finishing off the Treet blade.

One minor issue on the second pass with the straight - I pressed just a little too hard when first placing the blade on my skin and I think I'll have a little line. Luckily, it was in a neck crease. Otherwise, entirely uneventful.
