Friday 11th January 2019 PM

Pre-shave:- Warm rinse / Proraso Red Pre Shave cream
Brush:- Executive Shaving Company Medium Jock Synthetic
Soap/Cream:- Alvarez Gomez Barberia cream
Razor/Blade:- Rockwell 6c R3 / Gillette Green (1)
Post-shave:- Thayers Cucumber / Bart’s Balm Bergamot and Vanilla
EdC:- Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia



A great shave again with mostly Alvarez Gomez products.

The cream performed flawlessly. A straightforward 3 pass shave with no errors.

Finishing off with Bart’s Balm Bergamot and Vanilla- a really sweet scent with smooth and well nourished skin afterwards. Applying the Alvarez Gomez EdC was refreshing. A real citrus and clean hit. The scent is strong to start with but quickly disperses, which if I’m honest I’m slightly disappointed with. I may look at other products - moisturiser, soap etc as I really like this scent and want it to last longer.

An enjoyable shave once again.

Have a great weekend folks.
