It is definitely feeling like Fall these last few days.  Actually had to pull out the long sleeves and socks!  But it’s not going to last, weather guy just predicted several upcoming days of 80+ temps so Summer has gotten an extension.  I’m not complaining.  Although I love Fall, I have never been a fan of Winter.  At all.

I awoke to the radio playing a remix of SWV singing “Anything (You Want Me To)” with a surprising appearance of Wu-Tang members Ol’ Dirty Bastard & Method Man!  How have I never heard this before?  Anyway, so I went into the shave with the Killa Bees (Wu-Tang) in my head and I chose the soap appropriately.  I absolutely love Bee Witched by Mickey Lee.  It creates some of the densest, yogurt-y lather of just about any soap I have ever used.  The lather is simply incredible.  And the scent.  Oh man.  If you like the scent of cocoa, even a little bit, you are going to LOVE this soap.  I swear it makes me want to devour a huge bowl of Cocoa Krispies every time!  One of my top 5 soaps.

Third shave on the Astra SP blade.  Still plenty sharp.  Maybe a tad less smooth.  But then again it was working against a 3 day growth so the smoothness was probably on par.  I’m gonna push this one to four shaves, just as a test.  I like living dangerously… LOL

    Wanted to say thank you for your shave blog. You always have a nice touch of commentary as well as some good shaving info. BTW, that brush really caught my eye, looks spectacular.

Let me know what you think?
