    Bath Soap - Saponificio Varesino - Felce Aromatica
    Razor - Edwin Jagger "Kelvin"
    Blade - Kai Stainless *2nd Shave
    Shave Brush - Satin Tip "The Purest"
    Shave Soap - Wet Shaving Products "Gaelic Tweed" Rustic Vegan Formula (In my own personally labeled tub)
    Aftershave - Wet Shaving Products "Gaelic Tweed"
    Deodorant - Creed "Green Irish Tweed"
    Fragrance - Creed "Green Irish Tweed"

    ***EDIT - The 5 year old WSP Rustic Shaving soap lathered up extremely well and it's a great soap. The tub I put the soap in really helps to load the soap. I did a 2 pass shave with only a very minor few strokes of clean up here and there with a "feel and swipe" finish. BBS. Excellent shave. And this is one great scent. It's 5 years ago today that I bought the Green Irish Tweed bottle along with Royal Water at the Cosmopolitan Hotel here in Vegas as my first step into 'niche' fragrance. GIT is one of the greats IMO. It will always have a place in my collection.

    So i started with the old gillette blades but yeah ... i passed lol my face is a little tender from yesterday and both blades started tugging and so i reached for the personna. So i pulled out the williams and decided to attack it differently today. And as you may have guessed, it totally tricked me. It totally looked nice in the bowl but as soon as it was lathered on my face ... yeah totally vanished.. soap screaming “ siiiike !! “ psssh its slick as heck though.

    SOTD : 13th May 2021.


    Shaving recipe for today.

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

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears ~ Transparent Bar Soap With Mint Extracts. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Yaqi ~ Sagrada Familia 24mm Synthetic.
    Face Lather.
    Lather : Razorock "What The Puck? !" ~ Lime Burst.
    Blade: Astra Superior Stainless. (D4)
    Razor: FaTip Grande.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils. +3 Menthol Crystals. Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Nivea Men ~ Sensitive Cooling PSB. /Osmanli ~ Lemon Eau De Cologne.


    Early morning shave,

    last outing of the Astra Superior Stainless which has been consistently Superb with every shave throughout the week...I feel as though i could easily get another 2-3 shaves from this blade, but I'll put it into retirement as i have a vast amount of other DE blades to contend with.

    The FaTip Grande/Astra SS combo was such a wonderful match....Very smooth and efficient...Two passes left my face feeling smooth, but i carried on with the third & pick ups pass for the sheer pleasure, and to use up the wonderful slick lather the Razorock "WTP? !"soap provided me.

    A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Osmanli ~ Lemon Eau De Cologne.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    I'm neglecting my soaps in favor of lavender ones: but this one is intoxicating!
    And this morning I was intoxicated!

    A shave like the usual, but with a new member in the cast: the dragon's tail, achieved after a strenuous struggle compared to which, St. George's fight seems a child's play!
    No, I'm lying: it was enough to cut a leaf from my aloe.

    An incredible shave and a gummy, smooth skin!

    Hi Friends,

    here my yesterday’s shave (12.05.2021)

    Razor: Henson AL13 Medium // Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium // Soap: Tim‘s Soap Coffee // Brush: Semogue OC Boar // Aftershave: Soap Commander Integrity ASB

    Great shave. The Henson is really a fantastic razor. Gentle and soooo smooth. The soap smelled like a sweetened Cappuccino. I love it. The lather was very good.

    After all I used my unscented Soap Commander Balm.

    Have a great time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    Thursday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    TSD Iced Lime Shaving Stick
    SlimGem Silvertip Badger
    Stoll Jr. Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC

    The TSD Iced Lime Shaving Stick lathered well with The SlimGem Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Superior Lather Catcher with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
