Got the best shave I have ever had since I started wet shaving last night!
Seriously...NO Irritation, two-pass shave (WTG and XTG) with baby butt smooth results. AMAZING! It feels like I shaved ATG. I don't even get these results with a three-pass shave with my normal DE razors.
1) Cold Water
2) Corn Huskers Lotion
The Shaving materials:
1) Feather Blade
2) Hoffritz Slant Razor
3) Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap
4) Vie Long Cachurro Horse Hair Brush
5) Cold Water
The Post Shave
1) Cold Water
2) Alum Block
3) Witch Hazel
4) Aqua Velva
5) Corn Huskers Lotion
6) DIY Cologne
So, I got home weary and tired after a long day and exhausting night.
I jumped in the shower, with lukewarm water. I am working my way down to cold water showers. I shampoo with Pinaud's Quinine Shampoo. Remove the dust of everyday life with a plain ol' Ivory soap bar. I step out, pat myself dry.
I comb my hair back and apply some Eau De Quinine Hair Tonic followed by two small, light sprays of Bumble South Surf Hair Spray.
I then proceeded to apply cold water to my face, followed by some Corn Huskers to prep my skin and beard. First time I do this. I did this based on the advice of fellow wet shaving peers.
I had my Hoffritz Slant ready to go. Also, first time I use this. I must admit, I was a bit scared having heard of how mean a slant can be on the face...and...add to that...a new Feather Blade. I had heard a slant with a feather is basically the same as a straight.
I started making some luxurious lather with the Vie Long and MWF. Proceeded to lather up and down came the slant. After the first pass I had results that looked and felt like a third or fourth pass with my other razors!
Second pass left it BBS.
I rinsed off with cold water and applied my alum block. Very little sting. Followed that up with some witch hazel which I allowed to dry while I cleaned up my supplies. Once the witch hazel had dried, I splashed on the Aqua Velva and allowed that to dry. Once that dried, I applied the Corn Huskers for moisturizing. After all was said and done, I combed my hair to the usual style and applied some of my DIY Sweet Tobacco Cologne.
Simply amazing! My GF agreed.
