    Moving on to another of my favorite injectors - the Schick D Type. Super smooth, close, and easy peasy shave :happy036:

    DE SOTD, Saturday, March 25th 2023, Day 4 of testing my Yaqi Sentinel 1.5 mm gap 316 SS.

    Razor : Yaqi Sentinel, 1.5mm, 316L stainless steel with a Yaqi Chippendale 316 SS Darwin looking handle.-Mfg 2022>, mild range, Well built with accurate machining and a nice polished finish. Today I used a Kai SS blade once again with excellent results(Kai has narrow tabs so you have to do a visual with this blade when installed.) The razor and blade was a good match and the results worked well IMO.
    Blade : Kai SS extra wide, sharp and smooth with excellent longevity.
    Soap : Yaqi Green- nice fresh scent with excellent lather qualities, Yaqi commissioned Master soap creations of S.A to make their line of soaps and aftershave.
    Brush : Yaqi "Mountain lake" 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, very nice splay scrubber + great lather painter.
    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 : Yaqi Green AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my Yaqi Sentinel 316 SS with a Kai Extra wide blade.

    SOTD: 26th March 2023.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/ Asda Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Original Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: AP Shave Co 24mm Cashmere Synthetic.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: Cella Bio Organic Aloe Vera Shaving Cream.
    Blade: Silver Star Super Stainless. (D2)
    Razor: Muhle R89.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse./Alum Rub./Cold Water Rinse/Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. /Brut Attraction Totale ASL./Aloe Vera Gel.

    A relaxing Sunday morning shave.
    It's been a while since I've last added the Cella extra extra Bio shaving cream to my shave set ups, and forgot how good this vegan version of it's tallow sibling performs. Like the tallow version it's slick protective and doesn't dry out on my face and leaving my face feeling hydrated and smooth. I intend to use this cream more often in future shaves.

    A comfortable 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Aloe Vera Gel.

    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
    Junjie/Rapira day 6
    MSC Dark Blue SS
    Aveeno Moisturizer
    MSC Dark Blue AS Splash

    Wow, it sure felt heavenly to smell the beautiful scent of my brother Fernando’s Dark Blue soap and to lather up with it. This scent is a carbon copy of Hugo Boss Dark Blue, the soap’s tallow formula gives the lather such thickness, richness, as well as slickness, and it’s so great in the skincare department. The Aveeno moisturizer works perfectly as a balm, and the Dark Blue aftershave is witch hazel based so it never stings or burns, and it’s got the same scent as the matching soap - not only that, it has very good longevity - it lasts almost all day. Smoother than a glass table top - another superb three pass BBS shave that I enjoyed so much!

    Wishing you all a nice Sunday - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    The Old Spice Original Shave Cream lathered well with the Jayaruh #437 Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher and a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Dickinson's Witch Hazel and Pinaud Classic Vanilla AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    this Kairos SE ( Lamb Tallow + Emu Oil ) base really is spectacular, and with the Weber performing like a champ with the Wizzie, it is no surprise that the resulting shave was an absolute joy.
