    Fougere Friday
    Beaudelaire is amazing and I'm getting to the end of this splash and soap. The splash will be gone first because I have a heavy hand sometimes. The Model T is increasingly seeming to be the one.

    Friday morning:

    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Derby
    RVT Green Fields SS
    Proraso White ASB
    Alt Innsbruck AS Splash

    What a difference in performance - the new Derby blade felt so smooth and easy on my skin in complete contrast to the harshness of the 7 AM. The Green Fields soap’s beautiful peppermint scent filled the bathroom, the lather was sublime, and the cooling sensation felt great - in fact it felt even stronger than a lot of other menthol creams and soaps I’ve used and it’s not even listed as a menthol product. This soap also has excellent blade glide and it gives very good, soothing skincare. The Proraso White balm moisturized my skin so well and the Alt Innsbruck aftershave smells so lovely in an old school European way that I love, not to mention how cooling it is. A sensational BBS shave which was so enjoyable!

    Wishing you all a great weekend![​IMG]

    “Friday”, sounds so nice doesn’t it? Looking forward to the weekend but we need to get through the day (and transfer window) first! Today’s choice is the iKon Deluxe OC on a 80mm iKon handle. Like a far bit better than the iKon Standard or Tech. Smooth. As can be.

    RazoRock Black Bay, I won’t harp on its many merits I simply love the soap and AS.

    Three pass BBS shave with a spritz of Gucci Pour Homme and to work we go. Let the transfer window be done and the weekend begin! Happy shaves all!

    Razor - RazoRock Wunderbar
    Blade - [​IMG] (2)
    Soap - Soap Commander Courage
    Brush - @Jayaruh #46
    Post - Alum

    Last day of January. Hard to believe it went by so fast. But, it's been another magnificent month here at the 30DC and I had a lot of fun both shaving and reading about it! Thanks for a RECORD BREAKER people!! I'll get the final results tomorrow morning after we're locked down and on into February.

    Another shave with the Wunderbar and it was Wunderful. See what I did there? The Voskhod is completely smooth in this razor and it only took two passes to bring the baby on board. Some will tell you that slant razors are a gimmick. I won't argue that because yes, you can create the same effect with a Gillette Slide technique. Slants just do it for you and this one does it very well. I also have the RazoRock TTO and I was disappointed with it. This one, however, I really do like. Probably my new favorite modern DE razors, to be honest.

    Also the final shave in January with the Soap Commander as I near its demise. I left the top off for today's pic so you can see the progress. Still making fine lather and gallons of it. I'll probably switch to using it every other day in February to finish it off then decide what I'll eliminate next. On the opposite days from those shaves I'll use one of my favorites.

    Hope you had a great end to your work week! Saturday starts in just a couple of hours so go out and make it a fantastic weekend!!

    A wonderful smelling last shave of January with The Holy Black Gunpowder Spice soap and AS. I ended up with the slightest irritation and a weeper secondary to me trying to take extra buffing passes - I know better . I'm smooth but the alum let me know I went too far. Oh well... At least I'm smooth and smell great. Happy shaves all!
