Reflection & The 209:

This morning's shave (around 11 AM) was great. Soap Commander has delivered yet another awesome shave soap. Reflection has an incredible scent which is Oakmoss & Amber. And to my nose, this has a clean and fresh cologne scent that BOTH Barbasol Brisk and Skin Bracer seem to pair extremely well with this soap, but they do NOT match it. The Barbasol Brisk was the icing on the cake for this shave with that menthol cooling effect it has:


In terms of post shave feel, I literally have an ice rink type of shave. And it only took 2 passes and a couple of touch ups to get it. I could have went with 1 more pass in terms of comfort, but I didn't feel the need to do one and I was pretty smooth after the against the grain pass. Sometimes it's best to just do 2 passes or less if you have sensitive skin. You don't need to get a BBS every time you shave. That's what kind of damage the cartridge world has done in my opinion.

Proraso Green & The Turbo:

Man that shave was epic, wow. For today's brush, I went with my RazoRock Plissoft 24 mm synthetic  and the lather it builds is awesome ...
