    Oh God, Fernando’s Wintergreen is definitely colder. I don’t know how he was able to get so much menthol into that soap without deleting the scent and destroying the lather. The matching aftershave is so bloody frigid that it kicks the Arctique from Barrister & Mann in the tukhis. If you try to splash it on like a regular aftershave your eyes won’t stop tearing for an hour and your face will feel like it’s on fire. Rod’s Glacial Wintergreen is still a bona fide face freezer, though.

    Thursday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 11
    Bombay Shaving Company SC
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    A quickie but a very goodie - this Bombay Shaving Company cream from India is EXCELLENT stuff and I mean EXCELLENT. The scent is so nice, it’s a pleasure to lather like just about every Indian cream I’ve used, it has a mild but pleasant menthol sensation, and it gives terrific skincare. The Prep did such a great job of enhancing the postshave feeling, and the Aqua Velva went on with a good chilly kick. Finally the magnificent Bleu de Chanel fragrance and do I ever smell super sexy. (according to the wife!) Am I ever lucky I used the Super Speed because if I would have used another razor I probably would have gotten cuts all over my face because this was a lightening fast shave although I ended up BBS. No complaints whatsoever!

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

    Thursday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Proraso Red
    Jayaruh #443 Synthetic
    TNNSER V.1
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Proraso Red Shaving 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 Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Hi Friends,

    Here my Wednesday Shave (07.06.2023)

    Pre: Floid Sandolor // Razor: Yaqi Sentinel 1.5 // Blade: Gillette yellow (1) // Soap: Mike ´s Natural Soaps Orange, Cedarwood & Black Pepper // Brush: PAA Aerolite // Aftershave: 4711 Portugal Skin Milk

    I received the Yaqi Sentinel a few days back. The first shave so..the huge blade gap of 1.5 was quite a bit intimidating but the blade exposure is not that much. The shave itself went really well. It shaves super efficient but relatively mild at the same time. Should try a different blade next time. Normally i love the yellow Gillette but on some strokes it seemed a bit „harsh“ or „scratchy“. Maybe it was my angle…

    All in all it was a very good shave. Like the razor and the next shaves will come. Maybe a Gillette Wilkinson Sword from India would be the better choice. Or a green Gillette. Or a Gillette Bleue Extra…and so on and so on…

    The Skin Milk has a wonderful fruity, orange scent and goes on silky smooth. Fantastic stuff where it seems that i need to get another bottle.

    All in all a 8 out of 10

    Have a great time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.
