    SOTD : 12th January 2021.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/ Imperial Leather ~ Sea Minerals & Black Mint Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Yardley ~ English Lavender Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Omega S10018.
    Face Lather.
    Lather : Erasmic Shaving Soap Bowl.
    Blade: Gillette ~ 'NOS 94' Super Silver Platinum. (3)
    Razor: 1960's Gillette Slim Twist.

    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade (~Winter mix~) Lavender + Tea Tree Oil Witch Hazel Mixture./ Superdrug ~ Sierran Breeze ASL./Aloe Vera Gel.


    It's been a while since my much loved vintage Gillette slim twist has made an appearance in one of my SOTD set up's this vintage razor gives an amazingly comfortably smooth shave each time i shave with it. I repeat myself by stating each time that i shave with this vintage lady it still amazes me that a 50 year + de razor can still perform with such smoothness...A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Aloe Vera Gel.

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

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Beautiful, Matt, but how long did you have to wait for that snow to accumulate on your gear?

    Thank you! It didn't take much patience. We so rarely get snow, it's always a joy when we do.

    Thank you. I'm estimating it took about 15 minutes. I actually had to knock off some of the snow from the razor just so you could see it.

    Tabac Tuesday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shave Soap
    Oscar11 Synthetic
    EndGem Speed Razor (first shave)
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Tabac ASB

    This is my first shave with the 3D Printed EndGem Speed Razor. The Tabac Shave Soap was applied with the Oscar11 Synthetic brush. One pass and touch ups with the EndGem Speed Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
