    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #371 Badger
    Razorock Black Hawk
    Feather Professional
    Aqua Velva Musk AS

    The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #371 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Razorock Black Hawk Razor and a Feather Professional Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Wednesday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/new Wilkinson Sword
    De Vergulde Hand SS
    CutiBase Moisturizer
    De Vergulde Hand AS Spray
    Lagerfeld Classic EdT

    Would you guys believe that this De Vergulde Hand soap is over 450 years old? Not the one I’m using but the company so I would say that in order to be around this long they must be doing something right. This soap is from The Netherlands and it has such a nice old school scent with some exotic notes, the lather is so easy to whip up - it’s thick, rich, cushiony, and protective although not too slick, but the skincare is pretty good. The CutiBase moisturizer did such a great job of soothing my skin, and the De Vergulde Hand aftershave has a lulu of a sting when you first apply it but then it feels great, it has the same beautiful scent as the soap but it moves out of the way when you apply a fragrance. I switched back to my Canadian Tech for the next couple of weeks because I kinda missed it - what an awesome BBS shave I had!

    Enjoy your day - be well and safe!

    Feather blade - snapped (3).
    Yaqi synthetic brush.
    Lakewood Soap Company Honeymash shave soap (sample).
    Timeless Razor shave bowl.
    Irish Chestnut by Andy Hilfiger.

    Another great MARS shave. The Lakewood Soap is a great performer and the MARS took care of business. Three smooth drama free passes.

    Take care everyone!

    First shave with new razor

    Lather: Dr Jon's Essentials unscented soap
    Brush: Ever Ready
    Razor: Simple Clean Shave SCS-Model A
    Blade: Wizamet Super Iridium
    Post: Witch Hazel and aloe
    Cold water shave :Animatedfrozensmily:

    This was my first shave with the SCS razor. I have seen reviews comparing it to the Henson, which I like (version 1 AL13 +).

    This shave did not go as I expected. I have shaved several days with my Supply SE injector, which is quite mild and comfortable. This first shave with the SCS felt aggressive in comparison. I got a lot more blade feel than I was expecting. I did two passes and some cleanup and got a very close shave without any nicks or irritation. Maybe I will do a side-by-side comparison with the Henson using the same blade.

    Early Morning Shave,

    A wonderful performance from the Parker Variant/Feather Hi Stainless duo to finish my shaving week, and to start September off on a high note.

    Without sounding as though I'm repeating myself i have a great fondness for all my parker razors, but the Variant is my favourite not because it's cost ,no for the simple reason, that this solidly made versatile adjustable razor has gave me consistently irritation-free silky smooth shaves with every shave I've had with it.

    My appreciation for the efficient Feather Hi Stainless has grown immensely.

    An enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.

    My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.;)

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