    Hi Friends,

    Here my Wednesday Shave (22.06.2022)

    7175578E-3A7B-4240-8FB4-AA5F25FE2B9C.jpeg
    Preshave: homemade PSO // Razor: GEM Micromatic OC // Blade: GEM Stainless // Soap: Mike ´s Natural Soaps Lime // Brush: Vulfix Grosvenor // Aftershave: Pinaus Clubman Lime Sec

    So far a very good shave. I prefer mild razors so this has been quite a challenge for me. I was nearly BBS in two passes. The soap smells outstanding and the lather…wow…typical Mike ´s Soap, thick, cushiony and with great skin care. I love it!!! The Vulfix had no problems whipping up a fantastic lather. After the shave i used a sample of the Lime Sec Aftershave. Great scent. Lime with a good hint of musk. Thinking about buying a full bottle…

    This is it for now.

    Take care, enjoy your shaves, take your time and stay safe and healthy.

    Greetings
    Thorsten

    It's a great razor, along with it's brother, the Senator. Always get BBS shaves from them.

    Another lovely shave Gary!

    What a pity that the Fraser’s cream is no longer available. Enjoy it while you still have it buddy!

    Friday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Wilkinson Sword day 3
    Ingram SC
    Prep ASB
    Mennen Skin Bracer AS Splash

    I’m really enjoying my 1950s Super Speed once again - no other razor gives me the satisfaction that this one does and it’s so precious to me because it was a gift from my Dad of dearly loved and blessed memory for my 14th birthday. The Egyptian version of Ingram is exactly the same as the discontinued one from the UK - the same nice minty/medicinal scent, it gives great lather so easily, but there’s more menthol cooling from the Egyptian one, and the skincare is pretty good. The Prep and the Skin Bracer were a perfect finish. Three passes did the trick for me - another awesome BBS shave!

    Have a nice weekend - be well and safe!

    A touts les Québécois je veux vous souhaiter une bonne et joyeuse fête de Saint Jean Baptiste!
