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!

You chose the brush to match the soap or viceversa?
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.
Oooo-La La!! Magnificent.....
On point, Gents....
I see the Wolfman made it at last. It is stunning Jim. Congrats
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.
