It has been exactly one week since my last shave, I’ve been adjusting to our cooler weather (only got the heater out today) and since Wed have managed to catch some virus that made me feel like absolute sh*t (not COVID thankfully).

I’ve never had a weeks growth for a shave before, and it didn’t go as well as I had hoped. I did manage to eventually knock it all down, but could have done with a more aggressive razor at least on the first pass (I really do need to get myself an OC razor soon).
