Week 6 Day 7
The free week! At least one Italian stuff and let’s be creative. Going strong SteveWY!
Open theme. No single product theme… just post your SOTD or SOTW with any combination of hardware and software. But just to keep things “Italian” for this thread, include at least one Italian item in your shave.
As pre shave today I used only a light wash with my home made avocado oil soap. I wonder why I don’t use more my handmade soaps… Today it’s Stirling Soaps time. Ozark Mountain. I had a nice imprinting with this Balm, from a trade.
But the soap is not less. Slick with a wonderful lather, it lasts and it’s not afraid of a straight.
With its great scent. Woody and conifer resins are there. I just love it so much… Omega Hi-brush barberpole is the choice of today. Stiff enough to load today soap, soft enough to give wonderful feeling on the skin.
Today straight time. And what a straight! John Blyde the Genius. One of the best Sheffield Straight razors. Sweet and smooth silk, very nice shave. Shaves likes a dream on few words.
I’m ending the shave with a bit of Proraso Splash just for the tradition. But the real great end is the Ozark Mountain Balm that leaves the skin soft and moisturize, with great scent. Definitively a great feeling.
