    Sunday Schick Christmas shave, December 25th 2022, Merry Christmas and have a warm + safe holiday!

    Razor : Schick adjustable M3 razor- all ranges, well built and good adjustment design, great injector for experimenting with blade hacks and just a joy to use with a regular blade also.
    Blade : Personna SS PTFE (4) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
    Soap : Razorock Lavender, nice masculine lavender scent and has the best lather qualities of all my soaps IMO.(Discontinued[​IMG])
    Brush :Yaqi "Chianti's" 24mm synthetic, excellent lather generator, Heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Ach Brito Lavanda with with hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).

    My Christmas shave was the back 9 of yesterday, with the exeption of:


    Very pleased overall. I skimmed right over the redness down at Cactus Nation with no additional issues, which pleased me, A little better at NorthPorcupine than yesterday. The afthershave didn't react the way I wanted today(Stoylin Spice) opposed to yesteerday's freshness and good scent. Aaaah, I bet I didn't shake it as well as yesterday. This shave deserves a Super Duper Excellent.

    Christmas Shave

    Lather: Ariana and Evans Pedro Fiasco Shaving Cream Unscented
    Brush: Dubl Duck
    Razor: Henson AL13 V2 +
    Blade: RK Stainless
    Post: witch hazel

    I had an excellent shave with a couple of gifts from Santa (actually my wife, with some hints). The Ariana and Evans cream worked well. I use creams by smearing a bit on my face and then face lathering with a very wet brush. I will use less cream next time, since it produced so much excellent lather.

    The Henson AL13 V2 is new. My Henson AL13 V1 had been my favorite razor lately and I was looking forward to the improvements in V2. I like the new rounded edges and corners, making it easy to get in close around the nose.

    today was Barrister & Mann: Vespers in the Excelsior base... one thing that I did notice was that it felt slightly richer and more luxurious compared to the Glissant base, which also become evident in the post shave feel.

    The Ingram Shave Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #144 Finest Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 3D Schick Type OC Razor and the Schick Plus Platinum Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Menthol Monday:

    A helluva Grand Freeze!

    Hot shower
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Goodfella 3 Piece/Astra Green day 3
    Stirling Glacial Electric Sheep SS
    Prep ASB
    Fine Snake Bite AS Splash
    Aramis EdT

    Man oh man oh man is this Glacial Electric Sheep soap ever something for the books - it’s the first and only Glacial soap with a mutton tallow base and IMHO, it’s absolutely WONDERFUL. It has the same delightful scent as the regular version of Electric Sheep which is a blend of lemon, citronella, and eucalyptus, the lather works up magnificently, the menthol dose is lethal like all the other Glacials, and the skincare is numero uno. The Prep and the Snake Bite aftershave gave me so much additional soothing and heavy duty menthol goodness. Finally, a little Aramis and I’m smelling super sexy. (According to the wife!) Three passes with this Goodfella/Astra Green combo gave me an unbelievable BBS shave that was so much fun!

    Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Shave of the Week Starting 12/26/2022

    Henson +++ razor
    Treet 7 Days blade
    AP Shave Co synthetic
    Mama Bear's Raspberry Shave Stick
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    As noted in another post, I got a bunch of shave sticks for Christmas and decided to start with the Mama Bear's Raspberry one. Lathered easily and gave a wonderful lather. The scent, even to my covid wrecked smeller, is terrific and enjoyable. All the other parts worked well together and a dandy shave was had. My face is happy so go enjoy your day folks.

    I trust it's a good aftershave but it would take me a while to get used to a product named Fiasco.
