    Wednesday morning:

    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/new Gillette Platinum
    MSC Pole Position SS
    Intensa ASB
    Max Disinfecting AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    This new Gillette Platinum seems to work pretty good even if I say so myself. My man Fernando whipped up a real winner with this Pole Position soap - it’s tallow based, it has the lovely CK One scent from Calvin Klein, it’s such a pleasure to lather, the slickness is great, and it’s got awesome skincare. The Intesa balm is from Italy and it smells nice, it’s very soothing, cooling, as well as moisturizing, and the Max Disinfecting aftershave has a really nice scent that doesn’t interfere with my Bleu de Chanel, it stings like hell for a second but then it feels wonderful. Another silky smooth and very enjoyable three pass BBS shave!

    Have a good day - be well and safe!

    TSD Unscented Wheat SC

    Did much better with the amount of product on my second use of the TSD cream. Very nice two pass shave.

    It wasn't as close as it could have been as the blade is definitely on the tired side and will be replaced before the next shave.

    Enjoy your day.

    Aaaaand, another Throwback Thursday is approaching us. This will be my last one for 2021, but they will certainly continue in 2022.. :)Actually, there WILL be another one before 2022.

    prep-Dial 4 Men Bodywash (Infinite Fresh-Sandalwood scent)
    shave-Barbasol Original*
    razor-Gillette Sensor Deuce Pivot DisposeABLE
    A.S.-The Shave Den(Russian Leather)**

    **-1938(interesting story here-the "fun" began in 1768-the actual origin of Imperial Leather-, but it was 1938 when the Russian Leather products came on board. I wonder which aftershave came first in that year-Russian Leather or Old Spice?)

    For the benefit of those having just joined here, every Thursday I shave with at least 2 products that began operating 10 years ago or earlier. It could be from 10 years to 10 centuries back. You may notice, for instance, that most Clubman products say with pride that they came about in 1810. That isn't QUITE true. In that year, Edouard Pinaud was born. My personal view is that the Clubman products should have the year 1830, when Ed actually got his business going, calling it Clubman. Can't make shave products from your crib, after all.

    Razor: Yaqi stainless steel head with a Yaqi Rocket handle- Mfg 2021, similar to a Henson razor, mid range>, one side is ever slightly more aggressive than the other side, instant adjustable by turning 180 degrees, different shaving experience. Appearance looks great with its machined look and is not high polished top cap. It's my 3rd shave with this interesting model of Yaqi razor.
    Blade: Gillette Astra SP(3), Sharp & smooth with good longevity. My Standard blade for testing and comparing other blades.
    Soap: Ach Brito Lavada cream, nice lavender scent, Excellent lather qualities.(misted)
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Purple haze mew knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, nice gentle scrubber, excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Ach Brito Lavanda AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(balm) + scentless.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]excellent shave with my Yaqi title stainless steel head(no name) with a Yaqi Razzo Rocket handle with a Astra SP blade.
