Week 2 Day 1

We agreed with Steve to have the new shave off on the common ground of Proraso. Proraso Green, easy as it shaves. Fresh as the summer requires, but the fragrance is still timeless and season less. 

My Barber after a recent discussion said that he will never change this one for any reason. There are better soaps? Probably. But this is one of great bang for buck ever. In addition, it works. It works great and with consistency. I never failed with it and it was my shaving companion during my deployments.

I had an imprinting with this Soap, was my very first Soap and my first love. I simply love it because it make feels like coming back home.
About the brush: specially made for Proraso by Omega (what a wonderful choice). also know the #102. Despite the same handle of bigger brother 49 and 48 its loft it’s shorter of about 1.5cm from the #48 and about 0.5 cm from #49. The big knot and shorter loft means great backbone, great loading and consistency in results. A winner.

And to not waste all my cartridges, and to kit boring you more, I will stop here. Just few words that going fulk throttle to Italian Green means also we went using one of the greatest Splash and balm plus the timeless Green Preshave.Freshness granted for who likes it!
