Wow, another heavenly smooth close shave. Love this kit! The Family Spice is one of my favorites, smells so nostalgic. The Arko provides one of the most soothing after-shave sensations on the face. Aces!

A wonderful easy close shave this morning, luxurious with the Arko and Omega brush! I think it’s time to retire the cartridge soon, it’s not hurting but I can tell it’s getting dull now. Aces!

Barbasol ‘Skin Conditioner’ shave cream

Family Dollar Spice aftershave

Shaving is a way of life, it is tied with memory and emotion, the joy of a comforting ritual by yourself. I’ve been enjoying my working man shaves, my kit reminds me of my brother’s kit, and I feel a sense of home. The Family Dollar aftershave reminds me of Grandpa Wahlberg, a Minnesotan farmer who died in 1990. Barbasol connects to my dad and my own past before I tried wet-shaving. I love this ritual of shaving the face. Aces!

Barbasol ‘Skin Conditioner’ shave cream
Witch Hazel
Krampert’s Finest Bay Rum

A near baby-but-smooth shave this morning, the best start to a busy week. Nothing like a comfortable and close shave to get me started. I’m going to keep using the lanolin Barbasol for awhile, since it’s helping me to get such stellar shaves with the smooth Fusion Proglide. Aces!

Gillette Cool Wave

I’m very impressed with this Fusion Proglide Cartridge, a BBS on the 15th day of use. The Barbasol provides enough cushion and slickness for me to go a little longer, a two pass with touch up with no irritation or burn, amazing. I may have to re-evaluate my lather method with soaps. The Barbasol ‘Skin Conditioner’ deserves all the praise it gets in the shaving boards. Aces!
