    Shave of the Week Starting 5/30/2022

    Henson AL13 Aggressive razor
    Astra SP blade
    Plisson/L'Occitane brush
    Tamara SC
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    I have the Henson Medium razor and like it a lot but wondered how to get just a smidge more aggression out of it. I tried loosening the head a bit and that worked pretty well. But I went ahead and contacted the company and asked why there was a mild and medium why not an aggressive. They replied that they had made a small run of the Aggressive razors that were not advertised on their site. Also stated that these were not refundable/returnable. Hmmm.......I ordered one and used it this morning. It's great! Just what I was looking for still having the same easy, smooth shave that the Medium has. My face is happy. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    How do you like the Sterling Unscented with Beeswax soap? I like the Sterling Naked and Smooth unscented soap and I have wondered if the version with Beeswax instead of lanolin is worth trying.

    I like it very much, to me it's a real unscented not like a few other brands that I've tried.

    Hi Jeff,

    I would rate this a 5-10. Of the menthol-related shave soaps, I like the aroma on this one the best, not to mention the ease of lathering and pretty good post-shave feel and slickness a little above average. Notes on this are Lemon Verbena, Neroli, Bergamot, American Lotus, Geranium, Nutmeg, Saffron, Sage, Amber, Musk, and some Menthol.

    Thanks for the information Guy. It sounds like a medium level menthol soap and nicely scented.

    Tuesday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Wilkinson Sword/Shark day 7
    Lyko SC
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash

    My Plissoft synthetic is a terrific brush - I bought it a long time ago from Italian Barber here in Canada and I fell in love with it from the first time I used it. The Lyko cream is from India and it’s apparently very popular in barbershops over there - it has a very nice aquatic scent with some minty notes, it gives such abundant, rich, slick lather with a mild, but pleasant menthol sensation, and it’s very skin friendly. The Prep and the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave felt so cooling as well as soothing. Three passes left me smoother than silk - another tip top BBS shave!

    Enjoy your day - be well and safe!
