    ***EDIT - Great shave today. 2 passes and very slight touch-ups. I really like the efficiency of the Rex Ambassador on a "3" setting with the Astra blade. It worked well. The Chill Mill would win an award from me for that invention being able to make any shave into a menthol shave. It's a fantastic shaving tool to have in the den. The shave felt cool and fresh.

    22822C32-EDA4-4063-82DD-6ECD992C87FD.jpeg Great shave before work today with a new fangled two sided thingie. First use of the new Pearl Flexi. It was gifted to me by a friend in India. The Pearl Man soap smells like a Tootsie Roll and worked good with the Pearl Synthetic brush. I enjoyed the shave from the India made blade as well. As a touch of class the razor says “ shaving with fuzzy” on the cap. Love it. There is a video of the shave on my youtube. (shaving with fuzzy)

    After a week dedicated to building a solid high cholesterol background, I'm back to increase your happiness by publishing another photo to inspire and guide you: just do the opposite of what I do and you will be assured of a masterpiece!

    I have gone back to the Nordic creams whose fragrances continue to perplex me but whose texture and performance are definitely excellent.


    Sapone PS: Sapone di Aleppo, 60%
    Sapone: Fitjar Islands, Slåtterøy Cream
    Pennello: Lab. Villefranche, Il Tee, Padouk/Fan Manchurian Finest 24
    Rasoio: Mühle, R89, Rosegold
    Lametta: Polsilver, Wizamet (Polonia, 1976)
    AS 1: Aloe leaf
    AS 2: MilMil, BeMan, Balsamo Polivalente
    EdT: Mäurer & Wirtz, 4711
    ST: Emma Shapplin, Carmine Meo

    PS Just a little advice: be careful and do not trust technology too much!

    Hi Friends,

    here my just ended Shave of the Day (06.06.2021)

    Razor: Giesen & Forsthoff OC // Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium // Soap: Calani Oriental Plum // Brush: Mühle Silvertip Fibre // Aftershave: Humphrey‘s Witch Hazel Grapefruit // Music: Blue October - Approaching Normal

    I am so happy. I had loaned the soap and the razor to a good friend and got them back yesterday. My equipment actually looked different, but since the visit was extremely spontaneous, I just HAD to use the two things. It could not be otherwise...

    Yesterday directly sniffed again and again this dreamy smelling soap. Awesome!!! I was also extremely looking forward to the razor. Have not used it for ages and then it was also lent forever. So off to the bathroom and let the very good brush do its job. What came out? For me, absolutely brilliant lather.

    In addition, this fragrance ... :love029::love029::love029: What more can I say? The razor slid through the stubble as if on ice. After two passes I could have actually stopped, but the dreamy smelling lather and the great feeling of the razor let me do a third pass. Pure wellness!!!

    As Aftershave I only used Witch Hazle with grapefruit scent. Great great shave!!!

    Spaghetti Bolognese is cooking right now. Let‘s see what the day brings additionaly after this fantastic shave.

    Have a great time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Schick day 7
    Stirling Glacial Black Cherry SS
    Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
    B&M Arctique AS Splash

    This morning I wanted to show my Plissoft 26mm some love and I’m so happy that I did because it’s an awesome lather maker. It made the Glacial Black Cherry soap bury my face in rich, super slick, frigid, delightfully scented lather which also had brilliant postshave care. The Glacial Unscented balm kept the freeze going, its moisturising and soothing sensation is A1, not to mention how lethally cold the Arctique aftershave is and what a lovely scent it has. Another picture perfect BBS shave!

    Have a nice Sunday - be well and safe!

    The Vintage Life Morning TOST Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #222 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher 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...

    Stando (Polish Gamechanger clone) plate with Yintal 316L cap, a perfect match, yields a shave a bit more aggressive than stock, very enjoyable.[​IMG]
