    The jar looks like someone removed the labels from Martin de Candre shaving soap. Even the soap kind of has the look of MdC. Very curious.

    I just googled that soap... I agree... down to the lid even! I’m a big fan - and at that price, it’s a great value to performance ratio. Get one and try it out.

    What better than a floral soap for a day like this?
    Maybe a lot of stuff, but it couldn't think of any.
    I tried a pass with a little scentless Vitos Rosso to see if it improved performance: I didn't perceive any difference.

    Using an aloe leaf as an aftershave before the alcoholic one is good, but I have yet to try it afterwards.

    My neighbor's chickens aren't laying eggs at the moment, and that annoys me!
    That's all I need in addition to Covid...

    Stirling Campania soap
    Stirling Campania a/s splash
    Stirling Campania eau de toilette
    Superb shave this morning with the Rex. Stirling’s take on Acqua Di Parma’s Fico Di Amalfi. The scent from Campania is a little on the lighter side and not on the same page quality wise against ADP Fico but, for the money, it’s not a bad dupe at all. Great lather as always, excellent splash bar none & the eau de toilette gives one a nice, light and refreshing scent for a spring morning. As a package it’s a great overall value. Great day and shaves to all....

    Hi Friends,

    here my today’s shave (16.05.2021)

    Razor: Merkur34C // Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium // Soap: Mike‘s Natural Soaps Barber Shop // Brush: RazoRock Barber 24mm // Aftershave: Fine American Blend // Music: Danheim - Skapanir

    Great shave. Mike‘s Natural Soaps was my very first US-Artisan soap (Scent Pine & Cedarwood) since I startet classic wetshaving in 2012. So, it is a soap which will always be in my den. Great lather and even better scent. I love it.

    The brush had absolutely no problems to create a rich, yoghurt type lather. Fantastic.

    Splashed with the American Blend from Fine. Great scent. Life is good.

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

    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Schick day 14
    Master Soap Creations Citrus Melody SS
    Prep ASB
    Master Splash Creations Citrus Melody AS Splash

    My face is so frozen from this shave that it’ll take a long time to thaw out - this Citrus Melody soap and aftershave are lethally cold and do they ever smell nice. The tallow formula of this soap promotes such awesome lather with lots of slickness, the menthol sensation hits right away, and the skincare is perfect. The Prep gave me so much extra moisturizing with a lovely cooling and soothing sensation, while the Citrus Melody aftershave gave me a menthol punch which is even stronger than the B&M Arctique. The Schick blade is finished but it gave me one last hoorah with a sensational shave!

    Have a great Sunday - be well and safe!

    There's something different about the light/shadow play in this photo. I like it.

    I like this photo, sir. You changed up the angle. It caught my eye. Very nice.

    Yet another striking shot.

    Cold Water Rinse
    TSD Iced Lime Shaving Stick
    SlimGem Silvertip Badger
    Superior 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...
