What a way to start out my week! Perhaps the best shave so far.
I opened up the sample puck of Stirling Coniferous and pressed it down into my Old Spice mug. I limbered up the Parker SRB and placed the Merkur 34HD in reserve. Lathering was pretty easy and I soon detected the scent of southern pines around my face.
I made a little more progress with the Parker, shaving both cheeks and jaws, cleaned up around my mustache and then down my neck on either side of my adam's apple. I got a little jumpy when I got around my jugular so I put down the Parker and finished up with the Merkur. I did 2 more passes then I squeezed the remaining lather from the brush and had it in my left hand and went chasing stubble on the back of my jaw and on my lower neck. Much neck contortion was implemented and soon I was done. Absolutely no prickles or missed spots anywhere!
I finished up with the Old Spice aftershave. I've used Old Spice Cologne for years but have not used the OS aftershave for quite a few years. It smells about the same, but the AS doesn't stay around like the cologne. I'll have to add some cologne if I intend to seduce the Mrs.
