    Tuesday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 2
    Boots Shaving Stick
    L’Oreal Men Expert Moisturizer
    Proraso Red AS Splash

    This Boots stick may be as cheap as chips but it works great. The scent is unusual - kind of an industrial lemony/soapy type but not unpleasant, it provides excellent lather which is rich as well as slick, and it leaves a good postshave feeling. The L’Oreal moisturizer is really soothing, and the Proraso Red aftershave smells beautiful. Three passes gave me a brilliant BBS shave!

    Be well and safe![​IMG]

    You chose the brush to match the soap or viceversa? :D

    I didn't know they matched until you pointed it out.

    It has been over a week, since my last shave. I contracted The COVID virus, while at work, and I just didn't feel like shaving, or doing much of anything else. Until today. So, this is my "Lockdown Shave".
    It is with a newly restored, and honed American Made razor. I had a silky smooth, 2 pass shave, that left me BBS. Zero issues, except I cannot smell anything I am using.

    Razor- Lakeside Cutlery "Army and Navy". USA.
    Soap- AOS "OUD"
    Brush- @oscar11 homemade special. Synthetic knot.
    Aftershave- Florida Water.

    Thanks, Clint! It showed up in yesterday's mail. Seeing your pics with the WRH2 handle completely influenced my decision on which handle to get. It is a beautiful razor.
