Sometimes it seems someone up there likes me....
I slept like a log, this morning not too much sun and fresh air and a soaking in three of the best lavenders I've ever smelled.
What's more, I'm particularly pleased with the brush: having never had a luxury one, this one seems really good and the marriage between razor and blade has given me an excellent shave: a day, so far, almost perfect.
If Aishwarya Rai came to do the cleaning, this might let me remove the 'almost'!

Been having problems with this razor in terms of cutting hairs off my face. Got a lot of helpful tips and tricks on my thread so thank you to everyone who helped me there. The blue blade was a lot smoother today, thanks to my working on my technique, and I'm sure the razor being mild as it is has something to do with it. Overall, I had an excellent shave no irritation at all. I hit BBS proudly today.

Zenith B25 Boar
Mike’s Bay Rum
Grand Bay Rum Aftershave
Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
Super Speed/Schick day 3
RVT Frosty Bay Rum SS
Pinaud Bay Rum AS Splash
Although this Frosty Bay Rum soap is not as mentholated as Fernando’s Frosted Bay Rum soap it still has a decent amount of menthol in it as well as a lovely bay rum scent and awesome lather along with a good postshave feeling. The Prep always cools, soothes, and moisturizes my face so well - this is why it’s my favourite balm. The Pinaud Bay Rum stung me for a couple of seconds but then it felt cool and so soothing. This shave couldn’t have been better!
Enjoy your day and your shaves!

The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #199 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Enders Speed Shaver with a Personna Schick Proline B20 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...
