    Simpson Chubby 2 Synthetic - MdC Vetyver - PAL Injectomatic/Personna -Monotheme Vetiver Bourbon

    My first ever use of Martin de Candre .... and very nice it was. I can't believe how little was needed to load the brush and how much lather was produced. The Injectomatic preformed flawlessly and the resulting shave would be difficult to better.
    It was a great Sunday morning shave.

    Lather Catcher Sunday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Vintage Life's Morning TOST
    Oscar11 synthetic
    1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher
    Vintage GEM Cutlery
    PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm

    The Vintage Life's Morning TOST Shave Soap face-lathered well with the Oscar11 synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher with a Vintage GEM Cutlery SE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Hot shower
    Homemade pre-shave oil
    RazoRock Plissoft
    Vintage Old Spice shave soap
    One Blade Core w/Feather FHS (2)
    4 passes
    Cold rinse
    Thayers Witch Hazel
    Neutrogena Men's Triple Protect Face Lotion
    Shulton Old Spice (Thank you, @John Beeman!)

    I don't know what's going on, but each shave for the past week with the One Blade has gotten successively worse. I had irritation from the first pass, a few weepers, and stubble everywhere. If I didn't smell so good (first time with Shulton OS), I'd stay inside all day for shame.

    For only the second time using a 1912, the shave was above expectations. 2 passes for an irritation free mostly BBS shave.

    Enjoy your day.

    Sunday Vespers
    Great shave today removing two days growth. I started seeing the fateful donut hole in the soap today. I've got a good long time left, but I am hoping Vespers is a permanent soap. If I hear of a discontinuation I will get more as soon as possible.

    Brush: Elite Razor Tres Amigos Desert Ironwood Beehive w/Envy White Knot
    Soap: Grooming Dept Ingress
    Aftershave: Floid Vigoroso
    Bowl: @twhite 3D Printer Bowl

    Another great shave with this gear. As I said before I'm really liking this soap. I believe they use duck fat, and it is the first soap I have that uses that fat. The soap lathers very easy, and it is slick, with lots of cushion. (thanks @ram57) Weather has been nuts here. Lots of snow and cold, very cold. I will sure be happy to see Spring arrive. I'm also hoping to play a few rounds of golf this Summer. I will have to see how that goes. :)
    Have a good day.
