    Thanks for the Bay Rum tip, Guy. Oh, he stole from Floid, eh?(Barber Blue). Latigo attracted me, as did Aquamarine.

    SOTD: 14th May 2023.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/ Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body + Face Wash.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Original Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: Omega S10018.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: Super-Max Classic Triple Action Shaving Cream.
    Blade: Vidyut/Supermax Super Stainless. - (D2)
    Razor: Parker 94R.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse./Alum Rub./Cold Water Rinse/Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./ Cien Aqua ASL + Sensitive ASB.


    A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

    t's been a while since I've last added the Supermax classic shave cream to my shave set ups, and forgot how good this inexpensive shave cream performs, it's slick protective and doesn't dry out on my face and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and smooth.

    Another very in-expensive shave set up where everything paired together wonderfully.

    A close comfortable 2 pass +pick ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Cien Sensitive ASB.

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

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

    Sunday morning:

    Hot shower
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Rapira day 14 (last day)
    Captain Nemo Shepherd SS
    Aveeno Moisturizer
    English Leather Classic AS Splash

    This Super Speed is my number one favourite razor and it has such sentimental value to me because it was a birthday gift from my Dad of dearly loved and cherished memory when I turned 14. The Shepherd soap from Captain Nemo in Kolkata, India has a lovely scent - it’s hard for me to describe it but there’s some lavender notes to it. It’s vegan based, it lathers like a champ, and it’s so skin friendly. The Aveeno moisturizer is unscented so it doesn’t interfere with any fragrance you use, and it’s so soothing. The English Leather aftershave smells so nice - the scent pairs very well with this soap. The Rapira blade was on its last legs but it gave me one last hoorah with a terrific three pass BBS shave that I enjoyed so much!

    Have a good Sunday and happy Mother’s Day![​IMG]

    The HC&C GunSinger Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #340 Two-band Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher and a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sunday Schick shave, May 14th 2023

    Razor : Schick E2 type injector, Canadian variant- Mfg 1930s-40's, mid range, 1 OZ weight, excellent design and built to last with a little care. This razor was salvaged from Antique store that was in rough shape and with a little care brought it back to life about 5 years ago. One of the better razors Schick produced and had a excellent shave this morning. A person still has to use a light touch for great results.
    Blade : Personna SS PTFE injector (6) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
    Soap : Cyril R Salter Wild Rose cream, very nice rose scent + not over whelming IMO with excellent lather qualities. 5 uses later I really enjoy this new addition to the shave den.
    Brush : Yaqi "Aqua" 24 mm high mountain 3 band silvertip, Excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, great splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. There was a little scritch when new and it has mostly disappeared making it a very enjoyable brush when soaked for 2> minutes.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Razorock King Louis Lavender + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)3 template 9.5.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my Schick E2 type injector with a coated Personna injector blade.
