For a nice DFS!

This is the third day with the amazing Astra SP blade, and I keep forgetting to mention Secret Shave oil bought at Walmart, which I like to use before adding lather. It’s a great product and smells good, and helps make a shave even smoother with the awesome Astra.

I didn’t have as much stubble as I usually do because yesterday’s shave was such a close BBS, but I did a three pass traditional shave with numerous touch-ups. I think the blade is starting to dull so it didn’t feel as smooth after the second pass. I am starting to notice, with any blade I try, my face is good for two days of three passes plus touch-ups on most blades. I think from now on I’ll use a blade for two days. I purposely pushed my Astra today to test how far I could go with it.

My touch-up was a little sloppy and I had two minor weepers going ATG while buffing, but still no irritation or burn as the day goes on.

I keep practicing my lather technique. I love the Van Der Hagen soap, it lathers up nicely with my trusty Van Der Hagen black handle boar brush. I LOVE this brush. It’s been my brush since day 1 of wet shaving.

The end result was a happy DFS. I am so happy with the Astra I have promoted it to “bulk blade” status. I ordered 300 yesterday. The price is SO right.


May a DFS be with you.
