    Thursday's Shave


    Proraso Pre Shave
    Van Der Hagen Luxury
    Jayaruh #284
    Pal Injecto-Matic
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Aqua Velva Musk

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Van Der Hagen Luxury Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #284 synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Pal Injecto-Matic Razor with a Personna blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Continuing my sampling of Coates creams. Up today is the Lavender. Very nice scent. Kind of surprised that the cream was lavender tinted. As with the others I've used so far (Tea Tree & Lime) plenty of rich, creamy lather. Great post shave feel. Still have the Almond & Rose to try out.

    Cream: Coates Lavender
    Brush: Omega S10065 synthetic
    Bowl: Dollar Tree salsa
    Razor: Fatip Grande
    Blade: Polsilver SI (5)

    This morning's shave:

    C. W. Beggs Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra day 4
    Wilkinson Shaving Stick
    Nip Man ASB
    Christian Dior Eau Sauvage EdT

    A very lekker and comfy shave - lekker in Dutch and Afrikaans means nice or cool, or pleasant. The Wilkinson stick smells great, it lathers so easily and it has a good post-shave feeling. The Nip Man balm cools and moisturizes very well also.

    Have a great day!

    Razor: Gillette Guard Cartridge (2)
    Pre Shave Oil: DIY
    Lather: Gillette Foamy
    AS: Mennen afta
    Newspaper Date:November 7, 1943

    A simple 2 pass shave, WTG/ATG with clean up after each pass, no nicks or weepers, just smooth sailing from start to finish. An outstanding shave. A cold water rinse, topped with afta AS, resulted in a top notch performance, Happy Camper. God Bless.

    Thank you Andrew.
    This shave wasn't your everyday shave, rather:

    First Class Tickets on the Concord to Paris
    Box Seats at the Metropolitan Opera
    New Years Eve in Vienna
    Dinner at Peter Luger's Steakhouse
    Invited to the White House and to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom
    Seeing the Northern Lights from the Space Station

    I absolutely will not reach for this Soap/AS daily. It'll be saved for VERY special occasions. :happy036:

    Pre: Warm water face wash
    Brush: Omega 11137
    Soap: Wholly Kaw Man from Mayfair
    Razor: Blackland Sabre L2
    Blade: Gem SS
    Post: Warm then Cold water rinse, WK Man from Mayfair AST
    Daydreaming at work, I was thinking I hadn't used a full sized brush nor a DE in quite a while.
    Got home, fully determined to use both, then I remembered I had compared the L2 to the DeHaven, so had to see if I was right (any excuse).
    I was wrong, I find this razor as smooth but more efficient than the DeHaven.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Gillette Bostonian (Canada) Razor
    Bic Chrome Platinum Blade
    Ever-Ready #1 Boar Brush (restored)
    Klar Shave Soap
    Dickinson's Witch Hazel
    Aqua Velva Musk After Shave

    I love using this razor as it gives consistently great shaves with any blade I've put through it. Two passes with a bit of touch up for an excellent BBS shave.
