Humid, sticky morning today. Also cloudy. Almost a haze hanging over everything. Rain and thunderstorms headed my way. Had a great Friday and Saturday. Sunday sucked. Women, am I right? 😉
Digging through my box o’razors I found one that I haven’t used in quite awhile. The Shark Stainless Steel. Not a bad blade, but not in my top five. It’s only mildly sharp, and kind of smooth. Didn’t end up with any errors or blood, but I had to go over several areas a few times to get the smoothness I’m used to. If you have tough or dense hair, I would pass on this blade as I pretty sure you’d be disappointed.
Almost forgot I had the soaps from Jeeves! Glad I got reacquainted with them. The Butterscotch is my favorite scent from him so far, although it is lighter than I would like it to be. The lather comes super easily and is fairly dense and creamy. Great slickness and cushion also. I’d definitely give these soaps a try, especially if you prefer pucks over croaps or creams. Face feel afterwards is very smooth and comfortable.
