    DE SOTD. Saturday, June 3rd 2023

    : Razorock Game Changer.84 316 SS- Mfg 2018>, excellent machining and finish QC, tame mid range, I have always received decent shaves with my GC.84 but with a Kai SS extra wide it just makes my shaving more enjoyable to reach a nice level of closeness IMO. Had a close no issues shave this morning and that is all a person requires IMO.
    Blade : Kai SS extra wide (6)- sharp & smooth with excellent longevity. They are pricier than other blades but worth having a few tucks for those great mild razors that need a bump in efficentcy and some extra blade feel.
    Soap : Williams mug soap- interesting soap with a rich history in shaving world for millions of folks, the soap formula was changed from old to new and the brand has changed hands also and it is not as rich and wonderful as the old formula according to folks who still use both formulated soaps.
    Williams mug soap could of improved their soap but sat on their hands and did nothing and now the Brand is done for now, hopefully they will bring out a new improved formula down the road that they could of easily accomplished(management problems who where not Intune with the changing times IMO). I like to use this soap every once in a while, Mr. Williams "founder" must be turning in ..........! Folks ,must of found better cheaper soap some where else is my guess! Williams works well with a thicker pastier loaded brush on a wet face is my finding and just add a little water to brush or use a water mister if needed.
    Brush : Yaqi "Ever helpful" 22mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, excellent splay scrubber + great lather painter. This brush is a excellent splay scrubber because of a shorter loft and still has a reasonable soft face feel.
    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 : Proraso green eucalyptus with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)3 template 9.5.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] excellent shave with my RR GC.84 with a Kai extra wide blade.

    A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

    The Kent/MWF as always provided me with a wonderful protective slick lather for the shave leaving an excellent post shave feel...I could easily shave with this shave set up forever, but like everyone else I like variety with my shaves.

    A close comfortable 2 pass +pick ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Creightons Sensitive PSB.

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

    Keep safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen. :cool:

    Sunday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 7
    Captain Nemo Blend 47 SS
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    Geez, I’m really loving these Captain Nemo soaps from the beautiful city of Kolkata, India these days - this Blend 47 is vegan based like all of Abir’s soaps, it’s got a very nice eucalyptus scent which is even a lot nicer than Proraso Green, it’s chock full of thick, rich, slick, protective lather, there’s a good middle of the road menthol sensation, and it’s very skin friendly. The Prep gave me lots of additional cooling, moisturizing, soothing care, and the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave went on icy cold along with its delightful scent which moved out of the way for the magnificent fragrance of the Bleu de Chanel. Three glorious passes gave me a brilliant BBS shave that was such a pleasure!

    Wishing everyone a great Sunday - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Ever-Ready Lather Catcher

    Florida Water

    The Palmolive Shave Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #439 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Ever-Ready Lather Catcher and a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Florida Water. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
