    Lather Catcher Sunday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Archaic Eureka Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #217
    J.A. Henckels Rapide
    Henckels Wedge
    Pinaud Citrus Musk

    The Archaic Eureka Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #217 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the J.A. Henckels Rapide lather catcher razor with a Henckels Wedge Blade 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...

    Sunday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Schick day 14
    Lyko SC
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash

    At one time I used creams almost exclusively but now I’ve become a soap user about 99% of the time, however there are still some creams that I still enjoy and this Lyko is one of them. It’s from India and it has a nice, mild, minty/aquatic scent, it’s very concentrated so just a small dab on both cheeks is more than enough to give you great lather which is really slick, there’s a mild menthol sensation, and the postshave feeling is very comfortable. The Prep and the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave were a perfect finish. The Schick blade really dulled out and it even tugged a bit especially on my third pass but I still managed to get a very good BBS shave. Tomorrow a new Astra Green in my Super Speed!

    Have a great Sunday - stay well and safe!

    My favorite post war tech, an EKS brush, Mad Sass Shaving Soap, a splash of Lucky Tiger, and my day is off to a very good start.

    Hi Friends,

    here is my Sunday Shave (13.06.2021)

    Razor: Merkur Progress // Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium // Soap: Soap Commander Endurance // Brush: RazoRock 400 // Aftershave: Soap Commander Integrity's ASB // Music: The Reverend Payton’s Big Damn Band - Poor until Payday

    Another Coldwater-Shave. Second time in a row. I enjoyed it a lot. Not as gentle as a warmwater shave, but not that much of a difference.

    The soap is stellar, the brush lathered it up nearly perfect. Did 3-passes with the gentle and thoroughly Progress.

    Used my unscented ASB, which I like. Good skincare.

    Take care, have a great shave, enjoy your time and stay safe and healthy.
