    Early morning shave,

    It's been a while since i last added the fine fresh vetiver soap to my soap rotation and forgot how good of a lather this soap gives in a short space of time.

    A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Boots ~ Fragrance Free Moisturising Lotion.

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

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

    Christmas Season, Day 5.

    Full Tabac for Tabac Tuesday!

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Tabac Original
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Nacet (4)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (4)
    Brush: VdH Black Boar
    AS: Tabac Original
    ASB: Tabac Original
    EdC: Tabac Original

    Kind of screwed up the lather for the first pass. Not enough soap, too much water. Remedied that quick, fast, and in a hurry. I'll just continue to overload like I usually do in the future.

    Besides the first pass misstep, fantastic shave. I couldn't be happier. Of course how can you not be happy with Tabac?

    Here we are waiting for the snow; in fact in the air you can feel it, but the smell is missing...

    I woke up at 3 a.m. and at 5 a.m. I was already breakfasted and shaved: I like to do everything before dawn.
    The weather pushed me to a powdery soap and the shave did not disappoint me: two passes, a few touches and voilà... ready for a day of frenetic activity!

    Sapone: Lab. Lirici, Branco
    Pennello: R.A. Rooney & Sons Ltd., Style 3, 22 mm

    Happy December everyone!

    Tuesday morning’s action:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Minora day 3
    Bundubeard Klipspringer’s Kick SS
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS Splash

    Although the Klipspringer soap is nowhere near as intensely mentholated as the Kameelperd or a Stirling Glacial it’s still colder than cold enough to satisfy my menthol addiction very well. I love that beautiful coffee/peppermint scent, the lather is so rich, it has fantastic slickness, and the skincare is brilliant. After a nice long massage with the Prep a couple of splashes of the Aqua Velva felt great. Three passes left me almost as smooth as my wife and daughter - what a shave!

    Be well and safe!

    I opened December with Barbasol Original followed by Aqua Velva Musk A.S. Routine "sophisticated goo" shave. One pass(course I just do the one with regular shaving cream/foam). I forgot to hold the Barbasol under the hot tap water as it was filling the sink. That appears to "thicken" it some(to me, anyway). But still a fine shave for sophisticated goo. I have to say that from the 3 goos I've used in recent times, Barbasol comes in third behind Rise and Gillette in terms of thickness. But it(Barbasol)still produces a fine shave. Male sports heroes Knute Rockne and Babe Ruth were wise to sponsor it. I'll give myself a Most Excellent for forgetting to hold it under the tap wayer(as mentioned), and I did in fact get a Knick which was "washed away" by the AV Musk. I never really thought of this aftershave as a "Knick/Cut Destroyer." Perhaps others feel the same????
