    Soap: Los Angeles Shaving Soap Woody Lavender
    Razor: Vintage Gillette NEW Short Comb
    Blade: Gillette “7 O’Clock Blue” Super Platinum (14)
    Brush: Ever-Ready 50R/TGN Premium Silvertip-20mmx55mm

    LASS Woody Lavender today. 20 seconds to load the Ever-Ready 50R/TGN Premium Silvertip brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Gillette 7-O’Clock Blue SP still in the Gillette NEW SC. Excellent smooth, close, shave. I finished with Country Club Highlands aftershave.

    0A73B0AC-3E1C-4F2D-8F20-BA9D2116C8B1.jpeg My midweek SOTD:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Wilkinson Long Handle/Minora day 7
    Gilly’s Lush Life SS
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS Splash

    Despite the Minora blade being almost at the end it still worked surprisingly well, but it was tugging quite a bit during my second pass. The Lush Life is a hell of a nice soap from Gilly’s - the scent is refreshing with a mixture of lime, bergamot, and some other notes which I cannot really describe accurately. The lather was so rich as well as slick, and its menthol effect felt great. The Prep makes one of the best balms I ever had and my aftershave of choice today was Aqua Velva. My BBS mission was accomplished!

    Cold Water Shave
    Heno de Pravia Glycerine Soap
    Palmolive Shave Stick
    Semogue 830 Boar Brush
    Kai Captain Excelia (Japanese Style) with a Feather Super Pro
    Alum and Rinse
    Witch Hazel
    Aloe Vera Gel
    Alcolado Glacial
    Oudh al Qamar EDP

    I haven't used Palmolive Soap for ages and as I had an impulse buy of 8 in Wilko yesterday.....I thought it was time for a revisit! Slick and protective with a scent which doesn't interfere with Fragrance choice.
    2 Passes and a touch up for a perfect finish:)

    Birthday Shave:

    prep-Dial 4 Men
    shave-Stoylin Sandpiper Soap
    brush-Stoylin 26 mm "Pro Handle"
    razor-Gillette Sensor Deuce Pivot + DisposeABLE
    A.S.-Stoylin Sandpiper Splash

    Much better shave today then yesterday's weird one. Stoylin brushes most certainly are in concert with Stoylin soaps. (I can just picture Doc Ezlovan's "Well.....YEAH, y'know??". :). This is one of the soaps I'd like to try in summertime-thus make it a year-rounder.

    SOTD:
    A beautiful shave this morning, a fast one too, going to the military fair at the Voortrekker monument so i was in a bit of a rush.

    The aristocrat is a great mild razor, perfect for fast shaving, in fact theres no noticeable difference in the time it takes me to shave with this razor compared to a cartridge razor.

    Arko performed amazingly, such a great shave stick, and very long lasting.

    The feather was plenty sharp to cut through all the stubble, definitely a world class blade.

    Razor: gillette aristocrat barber-pole 1948
    Blade: feather hi-stainless (29)
    Soap: arko shave stick
    Aftershave balm: aquaous cream
    Aftershave: status for men.
