Shave of the Day - 7/6

Nivea Men Face Wash
Jeeves of Hudson Street Shaving Soap
Jayaruh #199
GEM Micromatic Bullet Tip
GEM Reversible SE
Thayer's Lemon WH
Lucky Tiger

Well, today, I tried out a GEM Reversible blade for the first time. @jimjo1031 sent me three to try out. The first one I opened looked good, so I was determined to give it a try. I got out my GEM Micromatic Bullet Tip for this shave. It is my birth era razor, introduced in 1947, my birth year.

The Jeeves of Hudson Street Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #199 synthetic brush. I did the two passes with the GEM Micromatic Bullet Tip razor and GEM Reversible SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. It was smooth with no issues. I washed the blade and belly stropped it before putting it back in the razor for tomorrow's adventure in Reversible blade shaving. After a cold water rinse and alum block, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
