Ah a great shave morning,
This is a day delayed, but it must be told. This is a tale of humble and sometimes tragic beginnings. The ups and downs that lead to the best part of any journey. A journey that once set to find, then found, the rejoice in finding the found objective, how sweet it is. Todays shave, if you cant tell, was pretty much nothing short of fantastic shave awesomeness. Now I have had my good and better shaves before that I have labeled as awesome, but today things just went like never before.
From the first touch of the razor to the last bit of stubble, I tell you what it was like harmony. The soap was at its peak latherieness, the blade at its finest. When you have two clashing tones that meld into one singular note that explodes into a symphony that rhapsodies your face in a pure melodic crescendo to its climactic fortissimal ending. This was a darn good shave.
I would equate it to honeymoon activities, but any of us that have been on married for any length of time know that things get better with time, well this was one of those times that things just were well-practiced and the moment had come to sheer pleasure. Well as much as it can be had with shaving your face. Well not like it felt exactly like I do when performing such topics as before mentioned. Im not that weird. Just like symbolism, thats all. You get my point.
I dont know what it was or what I could pin it down to that made this shave so great. It was a multitude of shaving events that lead to this perfect moment in the den. I tell you what, it was like the stars aligned, an eclipse happened and all the planets were in perfect order, all at the same time. Enough with the creative writing all ready you say, ok I will get to the shave.
So did the shower, get the lather going and then grab the razor. The lather just went good, I have been putting more and more soap on the brush before getting it all sudsy in the scuttle. Seems to have worked, just a couple of drops of water and lots of soap and swirling. This was the first indication of a great shave, the lather felt so goooooooood. After that I took to the razoring. I just held the perfect angle all the way across every centimeter of my face for the first WTG pass. Then the same for XTG then finally came the biggest surprise. Against the grain was the smoothest ever, no scrapping, no pulling, no burning. Never have had this before. Plus my chin was clean, I mean really clean. So clean you could eat a mini meal on it and not have a whisker touch your food, clean.
After all that I decided to try out the other nivea products I have purchased in the past, just the regular replenish balm today. It didnt burn, sting or make me scream in pain while applying it. It just went on and felt great. I hope this keeps happening, it was so great. I am here tell you that it can and will happen for you if it hasn’t already. The difference with me versus some is that I have to shave every day for my job, so I get daily practice.
I can only wish the same for every one else seeking what I have found today, shaving utopia bliss. Have fun finding it, I have been. It will only get even better from here.
Till next time, cant wait till the next DE shave.
