    Shaving Recipe For the day.

    Prep: Warm shower / Cussons Imperial Leather ~ Arctic Ocean & Icelandic Moss Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Yardley ~ English Lavender Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Semogue 1438.
    Face Lather.
    Lather : Williams Mug Shaving Soap.
    Blade: Gillette ~ 'NOS 94' Super Silver Platinum. (2)
    Razor: 1950's Gillette Ball End Tech. (US)

    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade (~Winter mix~) peppermint lavender eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./Williams ~ Aqua Velva ASL. (Spanish Version.)/Wilko ~ Men's Moisturiser.


    A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

    My fondness for this classic old school Love/Hate in-expensive Williams grows with each shave....The post shave feel it delivers is superb.
    My vintage Gillette ball end tech performed with excellence and paired up wonderfully with the NOS 94' SSP blade resulting in an enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Wilko ~ Men's Moisturiser.

    My face is feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Due to Lockdown number 3 i won't be returning to the mill tomorrow, i have been furloughed for another 6 weeks, after that a 3 day week shift pattern comes into action until the work orders pick up in the coming months...It turns out i will be on permanent day shift for the foreseeable year... Still not the best of circumstances but, i still consider myself very fortunate as, some of my work mates have been paid off which make feel extremely sorrowful.
    First & foremost the health safety, and wellbeing of myself & fellow workers comes before any job. Without us the mill wouldn't produce which is something our production manager doesn't want to hear or see. 'Some people listens, but don't hear because they don't want to'.

    Barbasol AS

    The Barbasol Original Shaving Cream was applied with the Burma Shave Boar. One pass and touch ups with the C.V. Heljestrand lather catcher with a Heljestrand wedge blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Barbasol AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sunday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/7 AM day 2
    Proraso White SS
    Proraso White Crema Pre/Dopo
    Italian Barber Amici AS Splash

    These 7 AMs are NOT so good - in fact I would rank them as among the worst blades I ever used. I can’t understand what it is about them because every time I use them I get irritated after two shaves and I find they start tugging. It’s a good thing that I used the Proraso White soap because it’s so good for sensitive skin - its scent is so nice, its lather is fantastic, it gives a mild but pleasant cooling sensation, and the skincare is perfect. The matching pre/after cream works so well as a balm, and the Amici aftershave smells lovely, not to mention the nice menthol sensation it gives. I managed to get a terrific BBS shave from just two passes!

    Have a great Sunday - be well and safe!

    Leaf Twig SE & Leaf blade
    Carnavis & Richardson 27mm Badger
    LNHC Amber & Tobacco soap
    Clubman Reserve Whiskey Woods a/s splash
    John Varvatos Vintage eau de toilette
    A good Sunday morning shave. The Leaf blade was coming to its end on this go around with a tiny bit of tugging but, it still finished off a great feeling shave leaving my skin smooth, clean and whisker free. Lisa’s had something to do with that I would suppose as the lather was protective and slick. Finished off with an awesome combo of Clubman Whiskey Woods & JV Vintage for a smooth boozy, tobacco, woody and light amber sweetness that announces “Man Here”. Great day and shaves to all....
