Beautiful face and head shave with the RazoRock Game Changer, the RazoRock 400 is wonderful.
Caties Bubbles The Royal Garden always makes the shave better
I did something I normally don't do, I added a lot of water in my bowl to see how much CB could take, much like the many great soaps we have now they can handle whatever you throw at them. I was surprised by the amount of lather I had, I'm a very lazy latherer.
It'll get done, but I'll need to take time figuring it out.
Pre-shave: Musgo Real Glyce oil soap.
Soap: Summer Break Soaps, Brain Break.
Aftershave: Alum, Brain Break splash, followed by some Nivea sensitive skin cooling balm.
Razor: Rockwell 6S (4), Astra SP.
Brush: Stirling Finest Badger 24mm.
Bowl: Fine Accoutrements lather bowl.
Some new items for this nights shave. First time using Summer Break soaps and the performance was excellent. Lather had plenty of slickness, glide, and cushion. I also received their 'Back to School' scent ,which I'll try out next shave. Also, this is my first time using the Fine lather bowl, and it's really really good. I used to face lather when I began wet-shaving, but found it more enjoyable to build a lather in a bowl, and this is a nice upgrade from the regular soup bowl I was using previously.
Shave came out BBS and couldn't have asked for anything to have been better. As of late, all my shaves have been BBS with very little to no irritation (Started DE shaving last April), guess I've finally hit that sweet spot with my technique. I recommended checking out this soap artisan, since I don't see too many posts about them on here.
very nice set up and pics ..glad you are enjoying your shaves..

Well, some nice firsts tonight. I'd been holding out for the next batch of Rocnel Sailors, love the styling of the thing, but as I read more the one criticism of it was a bit of a higher cap profile, my one grumble about the Pils; so I decided to jump in on this round of Ambassadors. My first go with an adjustable DE, chose my favorite blade, started WTG on 2 then jumped up to 4 for the 2nd pass ATG, easily the best shave I've gotten out of these blades, and my RR GC .84 is a hard one to beat. I appreciate I'm unable to trade out handles with the design but what a great tool, and the aesthetic is pleasing enough and very functional. Now onto the soap, I can see why folks enjoy it, I find it similar to the well regarded ABC, in scent and performance, albeit 1924 is even softer, and is in an unconventional brick format; but it does smell stronger than ABC raw. After use I'd say they are both equally lacking any manner of 'cling', I'd give a slight nod to ABC for lathering and that's splitting hairs, I feel both are very similar and great performers, choice I'd say comes down to ease of attainability.

Welcome to Menthol Monday. I grabbed the Stirling Orange Chill to add the menthol in, and the Fatip with a Voskhod for a nice agressive, yet smooth as silk, shave. The JR230 is a smaller brush but makes lather like it's a brute. Plenty to go around with lots left over, and the orange scent is quite nice, especially when paired with a little menthol kick. Three passes, the baby is in the house and probably was after the second pass, the alum is quiet and all's well in the Lou. Great day off shave and a great way to start off another week. Hope your Monday was great!
My homemade preshave oil was running out so I was looking online to see what to replace it with it to reorder my ingredients, when I stumbled onto the PAA Cube. I waited to shave till this evening because it was being delivered today... Incredible soap! The initial slickness was crazy... And just the right amount of menthol.
Otherwise, I face lathered with the La Toja for a nice, slick and comfortable shave with my Canadian Tech. I think the Cube is going to take my future shaves to the next level. Enjoy your Tuesday everyone.
BTW - I recently found a replated British FBT on an auction site for a great price and am eager to compare it to my Canadian Tech. Can't wait till it arrives!
