I receive my first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination tomorrow, the Pfizer (Comirnaty) vaccine, and I felt that it warranted a full head and face shave for the occasion.
I loaded the brush up with plenty of the Strawberry Fields shave soap, created a lovely thick lather on the dome and softened up the soap with a small amount of water. Being only a few days since my last shave, the first pass was much more acceptable than the previous shave. Knocked down a large amount of growth, with some areas coming up as a DFS.
With the wonderful lather, a second pass was essential to knock down the rest of the hair. A few touch ups later and the head shave was a success. I really do enjoy a good head shave.
Afterwards, I swapped from the Lupo to the Stamford with the same Usta blade. Lathered up the face with the Strawberry Fields and a first pass with the Stamford. I don’t remember this much blade feel from the Stamford.
A first pass removed very much all of my facial hair. A quick splash of water and another face full of lather for a second across the grain pass. A few little touch ups and being careful to avoid nicking the lump on my chin. A wonderful shave, smooth as silk and ready for tomorrow’s vaccination.
