    Sunday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 12
    Razorock One X SS
    CutiBase Moisturizer
    Razorock One X AS Splash

    Once again I used some stuff that’s been sitting around the house for ages collecting dust - this One X soap and aftershave were a gift from my beautiful wife. The scent of this stuff is absolutely MAGNIFICENT - it’s a clone of Aqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo which is a fragrance that I had a long time ago and I love it. The soap lathers like a maniac, it’s pretty slick, but although menthol is listed among the ingredients I don’t feel any cooling effect from it, and it has fairly good skincare. The CutiBase moisturizer is unscented and is it ever soothing, while the One X aftershave has the same gorgeous scent as the soap and it gives a mild menthol sensation. I only did two passes but I still wound up having an excellent BBS shave!

    Enjoy your Sunday - be well and safe!

    Good morning Paul.

    The lighting and filter are playing tricks with you, as I manipulated the shading.

    Soon, I'll have to get another Bay Rum aftershave. Maybe another Stephan, or one that has less clove scent than that(although the Stephan hides the clove pretty well with its other ingredients). I know you're a Meehan man.

    I am a "Meehan" man, Paul. :signs107: Right now, I am practically hoarding it, because of the exponential price increase.
    You might enjoy the scent of the Small Batch Shave Tonic. It is aged in whiskey barrels and devoid of clove. Check it out.
    Not sure if I can link to their website, but you can find it.

    Sunday Schick shave, July 31st, 2022

    Razor : Schick injector E2 type- Mfg 1930's -40's, nice mid range, 1 oz weight, easy to roam the face and can give very close shaves. This morning I thought I would try something different and used a modified a new Kai Protouch injector blade and tried it in the E2 and it was the smoothest shave and fastest shave ever with this razor. It was the most carefree shave with a E2 razor that you usually have to give it respect, turned it to a cartridge carefree shave feeling with out any tugging. It tamed the E2 from a tiger to house cat comparison and I enjoyed it(nice change). If a person is on medications for blood thinning this combination could be a answer to avoiding cuts if you like traditional wet shaving. I have used the modified Kai Protouch blade in the Schick adjustable M3 with better results and so it goes there next week.
    Blade : Kai Protouch AC 50mm modified to 40mm approx(1) excellent blade, sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity. Another alternative Schick injector blade.
    Soap : Razorock American barber- nice barber shop scent with excellent lather qualities. Milder scent than the American barber splash but similar.
    Brush : Yaqi Rainbow 26mm brown whiskers synthetic, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : American barber aftershave with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my Schick E2 injector with a modified Kai protouch AC 50mm blade.
