    I used my New Deluxe for my last couple of shaves and honestly I am happy to be back to the SE razor. Not that it is bad by any means.... This razor has been working very well for me and has been used for the vast majority of my shaves over the past few months. 2 passes of irritation free goodness for about as good as a shave as I could want.

    The first shave with this Fili. It was fantastic. Both very sharp, and very smooth. A far cry from where it originally came to me as.

    SOTD : 3rd August 2021.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Cien Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Yaqi 26mm Rainbow Brown Synthetic. (Faux Horse)
    Face Lather.
    Lather: Blue's Shaving Soap.
    Blade: Chinese Gillette Super Blue. (D3)
    Razor: Pearl SBF-11 TTO.

    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./ Cien Aqua ASL./Nivea Men Sensitive Cooling PSB.


    Early morning shave.

    Third outing with the Chinese super blue blade, which still performed wonderfully with no dulling issues.

    Each time i use blue's shaving soap, the outcome of the shave has always good, this morning was no exception...The soap s doesn't have much of scent, but it's performance, & post shave feel are amazingly good. 'However, i have mentioned before i won't buy it again as the price has more than trebled from some seller since i last bought it' for a little extra i could buy MWF or the new Cella Bio... I still recommend anyone who is curious to give a try though.

    A enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea Men Sensitive Cooling PSB.

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

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

    Tuesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 9
    Stirling Glacial Citron SS
    Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
    Stirling Glacial Citron AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    Another off the charts Grand Freeze from this setup - the Glacial Citron soap is magnificent - the scent is a delight, the lather is such a pleasure to work up, its slickness is great, the menthol sensation is killer cold, and the skincare is perfect. The Glacial Unscented balm is equally frigid, it’s so moisturizing as well as soothing, and the Glacial Citron aftershave smells as beautiful as the soap, and it’s a menthol atom bomb. No other fragrance suits me as well as the Bleu de Chanel - it smells so gorgeous on me. Another tip top BBS shave!

    Have a great day - be well and safe!

    My SOTD setup for the past month or so.
    Fantastic slickness and post shave skin care from the bundubeard rooi afrikaaner with its super high tallow content and prep aftershave balm combo. The derby extra started off quite tuggy, they aren't really the sharpest blades out there, but they smoothed out a lot by the third use, surprised I managed to get 12 uses out of this blade.

    Razor: Gillette slim adjustable
    Brush Yaqi Sagrada familia
    Blade: derby extra (1-12)
    Soap: bundubeard rooi afrikaaner
    Aftershave balm: prep[​IMG]
