    May 2

    Stirling Sheep facial soap
    Weber PH
    Feather blade (day 1)
    Rudy Vey Shavemac two-band silvertip
    MdC scented shave soap & glycerin
    Three passes
    Alum, Thayer's Lavender witch hazel, unrefined shea butter, and Alt-Innsbruck

    This was my first shave using this set up. I usually go for a two-pass shave, but I snuck in three passes today because it was going so well. I'm as close to having a comfortable BBS shave as I've ever had. I absolutely love the looks and feel of the Weber PH. It may be my favorite overall razor. Practice is required to get an MdC lather that is as slick and protective as the Arko. Using my Chubby-handle brush compared to the Omega Pro 98 also proved to be different.

    It is a beautiful morning, and I'm off to have some fun with the Bride today. Have a great Saturday!

    Halston z-14 balm and a/s
    today's shave was nice. the dog whipped the Stirling nicely. the progress is amazing, such feedback. I think it would be hard no to get a good shave. three passes left me smooth as glass. finished with Halston a/s and balm.
    hope y'all did as well, or better.

    Fresh Limes
    I used Mickey Lee pre shave butter today and I really like it. I chose the lime scent and it's really fresh and clean. The butter is easy to apply and very moisturizing. I did not need a balm. It also seemed to pump up the scent of Ferox as well, making a delicious combination of limes, grapefruit and pepper. The shave was very easy and smooth, the New LC doing its job. I finished with Fine Platinum to carry on the fruit theme and it worked well.
    Prep: Mickey Lee Lime Pre Shave Butter
    Soap: B&M Ferox
    Brush: HIS
    Razor: Gillette New LC
    Blade: Voskhod (2)
    AS: Fine Platinum

    L'Oreal Men Expert Hydra Energetic face wash
    2014 Weber SS PH w/Bulldog handle razor
    Rapira Swedish Supersteel (5)
    Bestshave #6 brush
    Proraso Green SS
    3 passes WTG/XTG/ATG + touch-up
    Homemade mentholated after shave splash

    Just came home after a long bike ride so the hot shower with the following shave was a god-send :)
    I think I'm in love with menthol (no scratch that - I like menthol and love SWMBO, according to her).
    I don't fancy a face freezing frenzy, but just the light cooling sensation of a mild menthol product is great to me.

    Have a nice day!
