    Prep: Hot towel
    Razor: Rockwell 6S – #3
    Blade: Gillette Bleue Extra
    Brush: Brad Sears Archduke 26/50 2-Band Manchurian
    Soap: Los Jabones de Joserra: Gredos on my Mind (another new soap)
    Post: CeraVe moisturising lotion..
    Fragrance: Sahraa Oud by Fragrance Du Bois

    continuing my 'new soap' journey with Los Jabones de Joserra: Gredos on my Mind, and... Oh my days! another one that far exceeded my expectations. Volumes of thick, cushiony lather, superb protection, with superb glide and slickness. Post shave is excellent. One of those shaves that feels like you forgot to put the blade in. It's moments like these that make shaving a real hoot! Finished off with Sahraa. It doesn't get much better than this.

    Lather Catcher Sunday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Musgo Real Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #4 Badger
    Superior Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    CWR
    Lustray Spice AS

    The Musgo Real Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #4 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Superior Lather Catcher and the Personna GEM SS PTFE 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...

    Very nice looking Razorock slant, I have been enjoying reviews on this razor. I have a Wunderbar also but the super slant is interesting addition to the Razorock line of slants. RR just keeps trying to perfect the slant razor and they might of done it with the different base plates on the Super slant.

    Neglected blade tests continue. This Lord is, to the best of my knowledge, my only Egyptian blade. I only have 1 left so 4 have been used at some point in the past 6+ years. It was ok…but I’d prefer it sharper. Kind of similar to a Personna red, which I trialed last week.
    Have a great day all!

    Menthol Monday:

    A tremendous Grand Freeze!

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Astra Green day 13
    Stirling Glacial Margaritas in the Arctic SS
    Prep ASB
    Osage Rub AS Splash
    Polo Green EdT

    If a setup like this doesn’t freeze your face off then nothing will. The Glacial version of MITA has three times more menthol than the regular version which is also pretty damned cold, the scent is the same lovely tropical/citrusy type, it has the same great lather that’s so rich, slick as well as protective, the menthol sensation is killer cold, and the skincare is numero uno. The Prep and the Rubby Dubby Doo were a perfect finish. Three passes left me mega BBS - what a dynamite shave this was!

    Have a good week - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Shave of the Week Starting 5 December 2022

    Pearl Blaze razor
    Gillette Wilkinson blade
    AP Shaving brush
    Blue's Shave Soap
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    New soap this week and it's a nice one. Can't tell you the ingredients cuz all it says on the packaging is Goat's Milk and Animal Fats. The soap didn't melt my face off or anything like that, just gave a nice lather that worked very well. And since my smeller is still (a year later) messed up, the scent is, what there is of it, is pleasing. Anyway, my face is happy so go enjoy your day/week folks
