    Razor: Gillette Aluminum Tech (Made in England)
    Blade: Gillette Spoiler (1)
    Brush: Burma Shave Boar circa 1979
    Soap: Tonsorial Williams
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: Vintage Aqua Velva
    Fragrance: Acqua Di Gio Profumo

    Today was another Gillette shave. As I said this was a gift from my Stepfather and had everything except the razor which he lost long ago. This was a gift to him when he turned 21 in England while stationed there with the Air Force in 1960, The best I could figure out researching was a Made in England Aluminum Tech would have been the standard fare they put into these sets that sold. So I decided to go all vintage except the Fragrance. Tonsorial Williams whipped up with my non-branded Burma Shave Boar brush bought by me back in 1979. Great lather and stupendous shave was had while giving the extra attention needed to get all the stray whiskers that try to hide from this mild shaver. Topped off with my Humphrey's, Vintage Aqua Velva and the Profumo. This was an enjoyable and refreshing shave to start the week and work. Have a Stellar day Everyone !!

    Beautiful, Sergio. I have always been curious about what kind of building was under that tile roof.

    Menthol Monday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Ingram Shave Cream
    Oscar11 Synthetic
    Gillette Double Ring
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Osage Rub

    The Ingram Shave Cream was applied with the Oscar11 Synthetic. One pass and touch ups with the Gillette Double Ring Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I finally convinced my wife to use my PAL to shave with this weekend. I'm probably going to invest in a leaf for her, but I may have finally broken her cartridge habit.

    Yaqi Heavy Metal - Eco Warrior Bergamot & Lime - ENDGEM SPEED №3 by Roger Quintero - GEM SSC #6 - Superdrug Forest Fresh A/S - Aloe Vera Gel
    The 3 dot ENDGEM was definitely another step up in aggression. The soap gave excellent protection, resulting in a lovely smooth finish.

    Menthol Monday:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Astra Green
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill SS
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill ASB
    B&M Arctique AS Splash
    Polo Green EdT

    Brrrrrrrrrrrr cold and beautiful - this setup is right up my alley - even the mentholated pre shave soap from Stirling has a good cooling sensation and it’s so moisturizing as well as slick, it does a perfect job of prepping my skin. The Glacial Lemon Chill soap’s scent is delightful, the lather is wonderful, the menthol sensation is so overwhelming, and the skincare is perfect. The matching balm has the same lovely scent and it gives a powerful menthol punch also along with great soothing. The Arctique aftershave must be used very sparingly because it’s so bloody frigid that it can be uncomfortable if you overdo it - the scent is also very nice. I scrapped the 7 AM blade because it was so aggravating yesterday and the new Astra Green helped to give me a shave fit for a king!

    Have a great week - be safe and healthy!
