    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Soap

    AutoStrop A2

    Aqua Velva Musk AS

    The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #41 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop A2 Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Wednesday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Gillette Platinum day 8
    MSC Frosted Bay Rum SS
    Prep ASB
    Floid Vigoroso AS Splash

    My brother Fernando makes some of the most wonderful soaps I ever used in my entire life - his Frosted Bay Rum has such a gorgeous scent, the tallow formula gives it great lather which is so thick, rich, and slick, the menthol sensation is terrific, and the skincare is unbeatable. A little Prep and a couple of splashes of the Floid Vigoroso aftershave and I’m good to go. What a brilliant shave this was!

    Have a great day - be well and safe!

    First time with Dr. Jon's soap, that came in the mail yesterday. Good impression: lathers up easily, slick, post shave feels nice, very neutral scent.

    Razor: Oneblade core- Mfg 2017> excellent mild razor, great design, Feather FHS-10 blades it uses have no longevity so I use 2 de-splined Gem blades. I just grind 1 spent one on the cutting edge and stack the new Gem blade on top and place together in the core and works well. There is enough resistance to hold the blade and makes the shave a touch better for efficentcy IMO. Good daily driver also.
    Great razor to use shaving the back of my neck after each hair cut clipping.
    Blade: excellent blade, very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable. Best cost per/shave for SE blades IMO.
    Soap: Ogallala Bayrum with Sandal wood, great soap, great lather qualities. I Enjoy the scent of Bayrum with sandalwood.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Mysterious galaxy silvertip badger, excellent lather generator, heavenly pillow like soft tips, great scrub + excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Witch hazel cleanse + Ogallala Bayrum with sandalwood (some clove) + dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion.
    Results: CCS, DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]excellent shave with my Oneblade Core with a de-splined Gem.

    Hi Friends,

    here my just ended Shave of the Day (26.01.2022)

    Razor: 1954 Gillette Ball End Tech // Blade: Gillette 7 o‘clock yellow // Soap: Mike’s Natural Soaps Pine & Cedarwood // Brush: PAA Green Ray // Aftershave: Mennen Skin Bracer

    Oh man, what a fine shave. The razor / blade combo worked fine. Smooth and gentle. The soap, typical Mike’s soap. Extremely good lather with a nice creamy Pine scent and Cedarwood coming through the backdoor. I love this scent.

    The brush had no problems whipping up the lather to a yoghurt consistency.

    As an Aftershave I’ve used Mennen Skin Bracer which I hadn’t used for…ages…such a nice scent. With the cooling sensation coming in after applying…fantastic.

    I had a blast. Very enjoyable.

    This is it for now. Take care, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Sea Salt & Fennel Extract 2 in1 Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap with Mint Extracts.
    Brush: Anbbas 24mm Synthetic.
    Bowl Lather.
    Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Lather : The Body Shop Maca Root & Aloe Shaving Cream.
    Blade: Treet Black Carbon. (D2)
    Razor: Parker 55SL Semi-Slant.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse./ Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Cien Aqua ASL./Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.


    Early Morning Shave,

    Last outing of the Treet Black carbon to finish my shaving week off.....The shaves that i have had with the Treet Black Carbon throughout the week have been acceptable....The only low point that i have with them is the rust issue after two shaves...That said, this won't deter me from shaving with them again, as the two shaves i had with them were smooth & efficient.

    The Body Shop Maca Root & Aloe shaving cream as always never fails to provided me with a smooth protective slick lather in no time leaving a superb post shave feel....The Maca Root & Aloe shaving cream gives the best protective slickness, and post shave feel that i have had from any shaving cream that i have tried to date...Superb Stuff!

    A enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel...The Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel is my new favourite post shave application for the start of 2022...A wonderful practical Christmas present of which i will continue to use as my post shave application in future shaves.

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

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

    Razor: Schick Imperial Set, "E" Injector
    Blade: sChick
    Brush: Sorrentino Orange Crush/Cashmere
    Soap: ETHOS Dragonsbeard
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: ETHOS Dragonsbeard Skin Food Splash
    Fragrance: ETHOS Dragonsbeard EDP
    Consecutive Daily Shaves - # 1177
    So I got this razor in a recent Lot Purchase hoping for another razor but the one I hunted ended up being a duplicate rather than a different model, so that one has been sold now. This though was an unexpected bonus in the Lot and I'm happy to add another E Injector to the stable in the Imperial Set Case. Not impossible to find but rarer than most cased examples. These were generally gifts apparently as most have a name engraved into the handle. Thanks "Zane Prize" for keeping this one in great shape. Off to a long work day today but will have tomorrow off to burn the hillside down as another slight dusting of snow is expected. Have a great day everyone !
