    SOTD: 1st December 2022.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/ Nivea Men Power Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Palmolive Naturals Olive & Milk Bar Soap.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Naples Tuxedo Synthetic.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: MWF.
    Blade: V12 Super Platinum. (D2)
    Razor: Baili BD177 Rose Gold TTO.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Alum Rub. /Cold Water Rinse. / Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. / Denim Original ASL. / Cien Aloe Vera Body Lotion.


    Early Morning Shave,

    Another comfortable smooth shave to finish my shaving week off in grand style. 'The Fat' never fails to provide a superb slick protective lather.

    Both the Lancet super SP & V12 super SP have performed wonderfully throughout the week with no problems of tugging or irritation. If i had to choose a winner it would be the V12 SP, reason being, paired together with both the Baili BD177 & Baili BD 191 in my previous shave was a superb comfortable performance.

    A surprisingly good blade from the subcontinents that i will use again in my future shaves pairing it up with different razors.

    You can't give a true verdict on any blade after just a few shaves, but the V12 super SP i feel as if this blade can uphold and maintain a good smooth cutting edge.

    I am of opinion that most DE blades regardless to where they are manufactured on offer today are pretty good. There are exceptions of course, but most are pretty good and give acceptable results.

    I categorize blades as super-sharp, sharp and not-so-sharp. Because of my mature rhino skin type and tough beard, I can handle most blades.

    The issue I find with blades is that not every blade works for every person.

    I repeat myself by saying shaving is all about practising your technique & shaving confidence.

    A very comfortable 2 pass + pick-ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Cien Aloe Vera Body Lotion.

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

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

    Thursday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Musgo Real Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #4 Badger
    3D InjecTR v1 Razor
    Schick Plus Platinum blade
    Lustray Spice AS

    The Musgo Real Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #4 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 3D InjecTR v1 Razor and the Schick Plus Platinum blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thursday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Astra Green day 9
    Lyko SC
    Nip Man ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash

    This Lyko cream from India is so nice - the scent is minty/aquatic, the lather whips up so damned thick, it’s really slick, there’s a good dose of menthol, and it’s very skin friendly. The Nip Man balm from the UK smells awesome, it’s so moisturizing as well as soothing, and it’s also very cooling. Finally, the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave (to me) smells great and it gives a wonderful menthol kick. Three passes resulted in a terrific BBS shave which started off the month on an enjoyable note!

    Happy December to you all - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Looks like a great shave. Did the scent of the Aqua Velva overpower that of Nip Man?

    Brush: Rooney Heritage 2XL Jade
    Soap: Eufros: Tobacco (Tallow)
    Post: CeraVe moisturising lotion..

    a sublime shave, the scent of the Eufros Tobacco soap is quite simply divine, a beautiful sweet tobacco that definitely lifts your spirits.The base is without a doubt top tier, with a lather that is easy to build, slick, and the post shave leaves your skin feeling nice and soft. I settled for Enigma pour Homme Cologne to finish off this wonderful shave. Definitely feeling good!

    Thursday Shave

    Lather: Sudsy Soapery Unscented Non-tallow soap
    Brush: Ever Ready
    Razor: Henson AL13 +
    Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (1)
    Post: witch hazel with added aloe and glycerin

    Excellent shave! I enjoy the Sudsy Soapery soap: it loads up easily and gives a thick creamy lather without much effort.

    Continuing my trials of various blades in my Henson mild razor, today I used a Gillette Silver Blue. This was an excellent shave, close, smooth, comfortable, without irritation. I am surprised that I haven't tried a GSB in my Henson previously, since I have a fair stash of them. I bought 100 of them a couple of years ago when lots of people were talking about them, but they had gotten shoved into the back of the blade drawer and forgotten.
