Thank you, Gary!
Thank you James.
Marvellous scents and beautiful brush frozen in a fantastic shot.
All spoiled by the crummy razor which you should get rid of!
(Did I tell you about my activity in collecting crummy razors?)
Second day of planning an almond shave and second day of I self-defeated my expectations.
But I was gifted a brick of vetiver beef yoghurt tallow soap and curiosity was high.
I had already tried that brand with contradictory results.
The poor result I think was due to the fact that I had used a pig bristle brush that I don't know how to use. The one with the badger, on the other hand, was satisfying.
Meaningless if what I read is true: they will no longer be produced, so... cui prodest?
But it was nice to find a scent very close to the one I like.
The brick allowed me to use it as a stick and created a creamy mayonnaise, yoghurt like, without "Santa effect", but very effective for tonsorial purposes.
The result was very satisfying and the generosity of the Soap Donor will allow me to satisfy my vetiver cravings until I find a fragrance I like.
The rest? In the norm...
I enjoyed a camp performance by a German who is a stage animal.
He not only performs pieces from the 20s and 30s, but expands into others from the 50s (Singing in the rain, e.g.) repurposed in the style of the earlier years/Big Band.
Very enjoyable and suitable for a shave in the silence of the countryside!

Cold Water Rinse
Musgo Real Shave Soap
Jayaruh #277 Badger
Fuzzy Lather Catcher
Personna GEM SS PTFE
Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS
The Musgo Real Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #277 Badger. Two passes and touch ups with the Fuzzy Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
I do not know what's the correct expression...
It's not boar.
Thank you, Joseph!

Shave Cream & Aftershave
Thursday morning’s Grand Freeze:
Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
Super Speed/Astra Green day 4
Master Soap Creations Frosted Lavender SS
Fine Snake Bite AS Splash
Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
Bleu de Chanel EdP
Every one of these new soaps from Fernando is a treasure - this Frosted Lavender is no exception. It’s tallow based, the lavender scent is magnificent, it’s such a pleasure to lather, the slickness is awesome, the menthol sensation is just about strong enough to match the Kameelperd or the Stirling Glacials, and the skincare is perfect. The Prep, together with the Snake Bite aftershave completed the job beautifully. The Astra Green blade and my great technique helped to give me a brilliant three pass BBS shave!
Enjoy your day - stay healthy and safe!
