I always try to factor in a MWF shave occasionally....just to remind myself just how good a soap it is. I am a sucker for interesting packaging which means it is often bypassed for something which looks more interesting.

Excellent three pass shave this morning. I am smooth and refreshed. Enjoy your day friends. ☺️
Uncle Jon knows what he is doing. I love the scent strength and performance. This HIS XL is was my first synthetic, I've used it 600 times, so this is also tbt. I like this brush, but the knot has been surpassed by more recent synthetics, my current favorite is the tuxedo knot.

Yes, unscented. I also found Thayer Witch Hazel for $5.99, but it was Rose Petal or Rose Water, something like that.

Timeless OC 0.95mm with Triad Ti handle
You can find it on Ebay (but it now) - but it seems to be getting more expensive - I got 2 bottles a while back and I was wondering why it cost more than brisk

Razor: Schick M adjustable
Brush: Zenith B02 boar
Lather: Soap Commander Vision
Post: Witch hazel, RazoRock Blue Barbershop aftershave
WTG, touch up
Easy and comfortable shave with the setup. Love the Soap Commander performance and am enjoying this new RazoRock barbershop splash. Terrific all around.
Have a great day!
My first shave of the month was perfectly BBS and so frigidly-cold. The Glacial MITA soap is loaded with some major menthol which kicks in right away. I had such rich, slick lather, the beautiful citrusy/tropical scent filled the bathroom, and its post-shave care felt great. The Glacial Unscented balm and the Alcolado Glacial splash froze me even more!
Have a wonderful day!
