    Early morning Shave, (Pre 60th Birthday Shave.)

    I have said this in many of my posting that the Haslinger Schafmilch & Lanolin soap is an incredible shaving soap. like all of the Haslinger soaps i've tried it doesn't get top marks for it's fragrance but My skin type really likes shaving soaps with lanolin added to the ingredients, the post shave feeling from it is absolutely superb.

    A enjoyable early comfortable pre 60th birthday face & head shave with no errors to report....Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.

    My face is feeling smooth & smelling divine. ;)

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

    Yes and no. It’s colder than 99% of the other soaps out there but to me the Glacials match it and I have two soaps that beat it.

    Tabac After Shave

    The Tabac Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #443 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TNNSER V.1 Razor and a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Tuesday morning:

    King C. Gillette Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 9
    De Vergulde Hand Extra Fris SS
    Proraso Blue ASB
    Max Disinfecting AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    This Extra Fris version of De Vergulde Hand is really nice - the scent is clean, soapy, with aquatic notes, it gives tons of thick, rich, cushiony lather that has plenty of slickness and protection against dryness, as well as a very comfortable postshave feeling. The Proraso Blue balm is so moisturizing and soothing, while the Max Disinfecting aftershave from Bulgaria stings like hell for a second or two but then it feels so cool and gentle. Last but not least the magnificent Bleu de Chanel fragrance made me smell irresistible. (My wife hates when I wear it unless she’s with me!) My goodness three passes cleaned me up beautifully - what a great BBS shave this was!

    Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    To my 5 likers, I had to change the "prep" to what you now see. I'll go back to Dove 4 Men when I finish the Stoylin.

    Razor : Yaqi Zephier, Mfg 2023, mild range, finish and accuracy is great for my shaving needs, I like to use a Kai extra wide blade in this razor for my preference. Easy small window angle to find and one of my smoothest razors I own. Might be a great razor for some one learning or a seasoned shaver with sensitive skin issues. Very nimble and quick to roam the face IMO.
    Blade : Kai SS extra wide(6) sharp and smooth with excellent longevity.
    Soap : Razorock XXX Fresco(slightly mentholated)with a nice fresh clean XXX scent + excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Mountain lake" 24mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, nice splay scrubber + great lather painter. One of my best badgers for handle and knot, great for general shaving needs.
    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 : Razorock XXX Fresco with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)4 template 9.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] excellent shave with my Yaqi Zephier razor with a Kai SS extra wide.
    Very quick and enjoyable shave this morning.

    I agree with you on the mentholated 2.0 cube. Nice kick but not super cold. But when paired with the over-mentholated Cryogen soap and then the AS, well just say I won't be doing that again. This new tube (actually old stock from five years ago) this tub had probably three times the menthol crystals laying on top than my original tub. Possible oversite on their part?
