A new shave set up to start the weekend...Continuing my month using Lord blades...The Lord Platinum Class blade are smooth and consistent very much like Personna labs in sharpness...I feel as though all the Lord blades I have used over the last few weeks could possibly be the same blade re-packaged giving different names & covers for selling purposes....However, the Silver Star feels more efficient than the Asco Super Stainless.,& Lord Platinum Class, this however could be down to the choice of razor?...As always reviews & opinions are very subjective...What is important is all the blades have been consistent with no dulling or dragging issues to cause irritation or cuts while shaving.
A enjoyable 3 pass + pickups close comfortable /near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off a with a generous splash of Tabac Original ASL.
My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.
Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.

Jayaruh 289 - OSP Spice Road original prototype formula - Canadian Schick E3 - NOS UK Personna Super Stainless Platinum Coated #1 - Old Spice A/S - Aloe Vera Gel
I have very little left of this Spice Road prototype originally produced by James Riley back in 2015. It's a fabulous match to Old Spice and is my all time favourite OSP scent, period. The scent is nothing like the commercial version which has a stronger anise scent. I'll be very sad when it's no more.
The NOS Personna blades I used in the E3 were a generous gift from Mike @MPF9. They were sharp, smooth, and performed brilliantly.

Saturday's Lather Catcher Shave

Granddad's Blend AS
The Morning TOST Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #419 2-band Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Ever-Ready Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Granddad's Blend AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Schick day 13
Master Soap Creations Citrus Melody SS
Henri et Victoria Bergamot Vetiver AS Splash
Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
Bleu de Chanel EdP
My second time using this Citrus Melody soap and I think it’s absolutely delightful. The scent is so beautiful - it reminds me a lot of Margaritas in the Arctic from Stirling, it’s tallow based so it gives great lather so easily, the blade glide is terrific, the menthol sensation is STRONG, and the postshave feeling is so good. The Prep gave me its own special soothing with lots of additional cooling and moisturizing while the Bergamot Vetiver aftershave from Henri et Victoria smells lovely but it doesn’t screw up the Bleu de Chanel’s heavenly fragrance. The Schick blade is much duller now but it still performed great - three passes left me as smooth as silk!
Have a great day - be well and safe!
