Officially off the SoTW thread as there were too few members on board.
So, as I'm growing a coronavirus beard (for something to do during lock down) I'll post from time to time on the days when I shave cheeks & neck.

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 = good shave overall.
Have some great shaves!
