    SoS 20230523.jpg

    First vacation shave (greetings from southern France btw)

    • Prep: shower
    • Soap: Arko stick (had a leftover and brought a new one)
    • Brush: Frederick Dickinson & Gilroy boar travel brush (go-to travel brush, excellent little brush)
    • Razor: Schick injector model L
    • Blade(s): Schick Injector II (same blade(s) I started with this year. At 3 shaves a week that makes about 60 shaves and it shows no sign of giving up!)
    • Shave: cold water shave, 1 pass + touch-ups (takes ages for the tap water to reach tepid temperature, so decided to go for cold water shave)
    • Result: effortless and excellent.

    Have a good one, ya'll!

    Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Rapira day 10
    Captain Nemo Absolute Zero SS
    Prep ASB
    Captain Nemo Absolute Zero AS Toner
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    Oh la la, this Absolute Zero soap and aftershave are two bona fide menthol atom bombs with a very nice aquatic scent. The soap is vegan based as are all the soaps from this great company, it lathers like a champ with lots of slickness, the menthol sensation is so potent that it can easily compete with any of the Stirling Glacials, and it gives such fantastic skincare. The Prep is a godsend for anyone with sensitive skin - it smells exactly like the old Noxzema cream, it’s so moisturizing as well as cooling, and the Absolute Zero aftershave toner has lots of moisturizing to it along with so much soothing - it’s also POWERFULLY mentholated. Finally the Bleu de Chanel with its magnificent fragrance finished the job. Three glorious passes and I was left totally stubble free - what a terrific BBS shave this was!

    Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Williams Wednesday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #217 Silvertip Badger
    Schick M-2 Adjustable
    Personna Injector Blade
    Cella After Shave Balm

    The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #217 Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick M-2 Adjustable Razor and a Personna Injector Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Razor : Razorock Lupo.72, 316 SS 2nd generation - Mfg 2021>, mid range, excellent machining and finish QC, excellent razor to work under the nose, one of the first razors to use concave corners removed for better detail shaving IMO. Had a excellent this morning with my Lupo.72!
    Blade : Gillette silver blue (4) sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity. Top tier blade for myself.
    Soap : Mitchell's wool fat, nice mild scent with excellent lather qualities. I sometimes put a little shave cream with the MWF to make ubber lather with great results.
    Brush : Yaqi "Artic sky" 24mm 3band silvertip, excellent lather generator, heavenly pillow like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. All around excellent brush for general shaving needs for myself.
    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 XXX with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)2 template 10.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] excellent shave with my RR Lupo.72 with a GSB blade. Very enjoyable close shave with no issues.
