    Officially off the SoTW thread as there were too few members on board.

    MicroMaticMonday , May 4, 2020 Thought I would change something today and latherd with my CeraVe hand bar cleanser because I find it to have slickness with not a lot of lather . I was cleaning my face with CeraVe and one of those last minute thoughts I'm going to try it. I had my Haslinger Schafmilch in the bowl for a back up if things went hay wire.
    Results indicated I should of used more soap but it did the job & will work if needed, not as good as some shave soaps and will do another test down the road( I have a lot of good soaps to wean down).

    Razor: Gem Micromatic (open comb) or MMOC.... - Mfg 1932-41-great mid range, this saved Gem Mfg during the dirty thirties IMO and was the first TTO to appear anywhere. Folks, Gem was a great innovator & years ahead of its rivals.Gillette was like 4 or 5 years behind in their TTO- they did build some good ones when they finally got to the public.
    Blade: Gem SS PTFE (10) great blade all the way around, Very sharp, smooths out and has longevity.
    Soap: CeraVe hand bar cleanser- will work and I will do a better test instead a last minute thought.
    Brush: Yaqi Kashmire 24 mm - dedicated brush for cleaning my whole face.
    Pre-shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 3.
    Post shave: Razorock blue barber splash with witch Hazel + Nivea sensitive balm.
    Results: CCS+DFS+BBS + no irritation + 1 weeper = [​IMG] good shave overall.
