A clean, well deserved shave at the end of the week. Gotta look good for the weekend right? Just two passes today, as opposed to my regular three, WTG and XTG. Wasn’t really in the mood for a third pass.

I’m still loving this soap even though the supplier is quite controversial in the wetshaving community. I’m sorry if my purchase rubs you the wrong way.

Fewer nicks today compared with my last shave, clearly my face doesn’t like a brand new blade. Wonder if I need something even more mild for a first use of a blade. Wonder what I could use?
