    Sotd yesterday
    Razor: Gillette Long V2 adjustable
    Blade: perma sharp
    Brush: Jayaruh wanut synthetic
    Soap: LPL Cedar Pachouli

    A/S : Lime sec

    Starting and ending this weekend with my birth razors.

    This shave was really good. I played with soap some more and surprisingly it did well. The slickness was improved and so did the lather. The razor did its thing but the blade was being a little stubborn and therefore wont be used after this shave.

    Sotd today

    Razor: Gillette superspeed V2
    Blade: Astra
    Brush: vintage everready t40 badger
    Soap: razorock tuscan oud
    A/S: razorock tuscan oud
    Post: tom ford tuscan leather

    Fantastic shave with this set up. Razorock isnt high end and for the price it doesnt need to be. The soap performs as it should for what you pay. Some slickness, some cushion, and some great fragrance. Thats what i get with soap and i love the scent. Pairs well with this body spray by Tom Ford.

    This razor shaves exceptionally well. So, when it calls, as it has been, it’s hard to say, “no.” Fabulous shave :happy036:

    Shaving Recipe For the day.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.
    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears ~ Transparent Bar Soap With Mint Extracts. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Omega S10065.
    Bowl Lather.
    Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Lather: Edwin Jagger ~ Limes & Pomegranate Shaving Cream.
    Blade: Gillette Winner Stainless. (D2)
    Razor: Parker 22r.
    Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.+3 Menthol Crystals. Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Aloe Vera Gel./ Duru ~Lemon Cologne Spray.


    A relaxing Sunday morning shave...The parker 22r / winner stainless was a wonderful smooth efficient duo... I've mentioned in many of my postings that shaving products produced in the subcontinent don't get the credit they rightly deserve the winner stainless is another example that you don't need to spend a fortune on DE blades to get a good shave...A pleasurable 3 pass + pickups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off a with a generous squirts of Duru ~Lemon Cologne Spray.

    My face is feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy your Easter Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    The Barbasol Shave Cream lathered well with The Bunny B-400 by Tom. Two passes and touch ups with the C.V. Heljestrand Lather Catcher razor with a C.V. Heljestrand Wedge blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Fresh air and warm sunshine: wonder if my neighbor's chickens will lay more eggs?
    I've always been greedy!
    I just had brunch since, after hours of insomnia, I fell back asleep and woke up late.
    A shave in a blinding light, but an excellent result.

    I am rediscovering the scents that had been unused all winter....

    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    First of all Happy Easter my friends!

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 14
    Master Soap Creations Peppermint Lime SS
    Prep ASB
    Master Splash Creations Frosted Spearmint AS Splash

    Two fantastic menthol atom bombs left me so frozen that I think it’ll take all day for my face to thaw out and for the numbness to wear off. Fernando is a Grand Master of soaps and aftershaves - the Peppermint Lime soap has such a gorgeous scent, it’s unbelievable how my Yaqi Barber Pole created such a magnificent lather which easily competes with any of the so called best “high end” brands, the menthol sensation is monstrous, and the skincare is perfect. The Prep to me, is a godsend for my sensitive skin, and the Frosted Spearmint aftershave smells lovely, not to mention how frigid it is. The Astra Green blade earned its retirement after two weeks of faithful service - today’s shave was nothing short of brilliant!

    Have a great Sunday - be well and safe!
