Week 5 Day 2
Today I was on a hurry.
I choose stuff to get the job done in a quickly but with class. Also I went minimal. Lovely. I should do like that more often.
Today Valobra stick. I was not using it since some time and I don’t know why.
It’s classy scent reminds me something back in the good old days. It’s a timeless scent with hints of geranium and bebop music.
I had a lot of fun on crayoning my face with the stick
Omega S-brush is a synthetic workhorse. I love it because its consistently gives soft lather and has good backbone.
The razor is a vintage Co.Ci.Na razor made 40 years ago for the Italian Army.
It’s called “il Soldatino” and I’m very proud of it.
It’s not perfect and looks like a poor Gillette. But above on this imperfections it’s a mild razor with a good brassy weight that gives stunning shastunning.
Stirling is a glowing star in my shave den. I love pretty much everything from them. I believe that they offer fantastic quality shaving handmade products at a fair price. At least in US.
This Balm reminds me anise and liquorice candied that I love with a higher menthol kick.
The performance is really good with a soft moisturized fresh skin.
