Week 4 Day 5
Today another great shave with some of my favorite hardware and software. 

PannaCrema Namaste with its spicy lemongrass and musk it’s just perfect for another hot day like this. The addition of few drops of my Menthol Dope also helps to raise the freshness and wonderful fragrance of this soap.

Lather is slick and creamy. Today I dropped a dollop and few drops of water on my bowl and I loaded in bowl. Then I face lathered.


I can pass on bowl loading but I can’t pass on face lathering.
The Omega Hi-brush barberpole is a great brush. It’s a synthetic one and it should be a synthetic badger. Well we are still far from that but it’s a nice brush the same. And the handle deserves a place in its own, pain gorgeous.
Fatip and Personna are running like two long time friends. Smooth and comfortable but after 5 shaves the closeness is starting to fade. 

Since I’m mostly a two passes shaver I can notice that. No ATG since two months and I don’t miss it too.
I talked a lot about Fire Accoutrements and how much I love it. I used today with great satisfaction and I’m just afraid to finish it!

Proraso Blue Balm is the richest Balm of the line and leaves almost no scent. Perfect if you later follow a good perfume or EDT.
