    A really good two pass shave today. Der Vorschlaghammer is efficient enough for me to skip a pass and not miss it.

    Brush: Wild West Go Green

    Thursday morning:

    La Roche-Posay Exfoliating Scrub
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 11
    Stirling Sharp Dressed Man SS
    Nivea Sensitive ASB
    English Leather Classic AS Splash
    Azzaro Wanted By Night EdP

    The Astra Green blade is still performing like a champ - it really surprises me because I only get longevity like this with my Minoras. After not using my Sharp Dressed Man soap for so long I really enjoyed the magnificent scent, it gave me such wonderful lather which was super rich, mega slick, and so protective. The Nivea Sensitive balm’s scent is not to my liking but it’s very moisturizing and soothing. The English Leather aftershave brought back memories of my arrival in Canada. Today’s shave was ultra smooth and very enjoyable!

    Have a great day - be well and safe!

    I'm curious to see if Doc Ezlovan will do a Viking dupe for Stoylin. Anything simple is good in these days.

    Soap: Razorock Irish Countryside- nice mild scent with excellent lather qualities. Good post shave feel also.
    Brush: Yaqi rainbow brown whiskers 26mm synthetic, excellent lather generator with cloud like soft tips + good back bone for a nice scrub, paints lather great.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser+ a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock Emperor with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm (-21C, humidity 40 indoors)

    Schick Type G Canadian made injector, vintage Schick Platinum plus blade, shave 6

    I decided to use only ultrasound gel today to test and found the shave was fairly even on both sides of the face with a BBS finish achieved. This stuff works really well just need to make sure the blade is good and wet or it can gunk up and affect the blade cut. Next shave willl use the aloe vera gel by itself to see if it works as well and if the prior shave using it on the half the face was a fluke and possibly due to the gunk up issue when the blade is not wet enough.
