    SOTD : 12th June 2021.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower /Asda Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Anbbas 24mm Synthetic.
    Face Lather.
    Lather: Eco Warrior Bergamot & Lime Shaving Bar.
    Blade : Voskhod. (D1)
    Razor : Merkur 39c.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.+3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. /La Toja ASL./Nivea Men Sensitive Cooling PSB.


    A new shave set up to start the weekend...I haven't gave much attention to my much loved Merkur slants especially the 39c so i'll be using it with all my shaves throughout the week ,pairing it up with another Voskhod blade after the superb shaves i had in my previous weeks shaves.

    The Eco Warrior soap bar provided a wonderful slick lather rubbing it directly into my stubble like a shave stick, then started to build up a lather with my damp brush adding more water to the tips of the brush continued building the lather until i got it to the consistency i like...Another superb match with Merkur 39c./Voskhod duo.

    I find the Voskhod doesn't feel aggressive when shaving with them, but give an efficient performance feeling very smooth throughout the shave.

    A enjoyable close comfortable near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea Men Sensitive Cooling PSB.

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

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Cool morning. So far...
    The Scottish lavender seemed appropriate, however, the blade on the Rocket did not satisfy me as much as on the Progress; but that could be for reasons other than mere pairing.

    Then, having always been sort of a daredevil, I tried what has not yet been tried: using the aloe leaf after the alcoholic AS.
    And I did wrong: it must be used before the other AS.

    And, since there's no two without three, I listened to Chet Baker with this sun.
    Bad luck!
    For me, listening to Chet Baker in this sun is like wearing brogues on a yacht: nice, but unsuitable.

    But...there are worse experiences.

    Saturday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Schick day 13
    Master Soap Creations Peppermint Latte SS
    Prep ASB
    Krampert’s Frostbite AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    This Schick blade is still performing well although it has dulled out quite a bit yet it’s not tugging but after tomorrow I’ll replace it. The Peppermint Latte is such a lovely soap - its scent is beautiful, the lather is such a pleasure to work up - it’s so thick, rich, with great slickness because of the tallow formula, the menthol sensation is wonderful, and the postshave feeling is so soothing. Thanks to the Prep and the Krampert’s Frostbite aftershave my face felt so well cared for as well as icy cold and the Bleu de Chanel had me smelling gorgeous. Another picture perfect BBS shave!

    Have a good day - be well and safe!

    Saturday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Archaic Eureka Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #217
    Gillette New DeLuxe Tuckaway
    Personna Super (55)
    Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC

    The Archaic Eureka Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #217 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette New DeLuxe Tuckaway with a Personna Super Blade (55) gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I'm loving it so far. Only seven shaves in with it and it's already one of the top dogs in my collection.

    That's a really nice setup! I'm making a conscious effort to not sound like a fanboy but the truth is the Fatboy really is a fantastic razor! I think you nailed it on all points
