It is COLD and windy this morning! Not as windy as yesterday when we had 60mph wind gusts, but it is still very windy today. And wet since it rained all night. Plus they are predicting that moisture could turn into snow flurries. Nice, right? NO.
After that frigid walk I was looking forward to a nice warm shave. Opted for the Big Green Monster by Dr. Jon’s. I like the scent of this soap. Another one of those thats a complex scent for me – peppermint, basil, and lime. It’s a great combination. Whips up into a nice creamy lather. Not the most dense but has decent cushion and slickness. Good skin feel after the shave. And for those that care about such things – it’s a vegan soap.
Third shave on the Derby blade. Still decently sharp. Definitely not as smooth. But no errors or blooding this morning. Had to chase the baby a bit in my problem areas but otherwise a smooth and comfortable shave.
TGIF! Have a great weekend! I’m going to Chicago. What are your favorite stops there?
