    Soap : Razorock Lavender, nice masculine scented lavender with excellent lather qualities.

    (Face & Head Shave)

    A new shave set up to start the weekend....A near repeat of my previous shave.

    I used the Ach Brito Mogno Shaving Soap Bar like a shave stick rubbing it directly into my stubble then started to build up a lather with my wet brush adding more water to the tips of the brush continued building the lather until i got it to the consistency i like, adding more water to the tips of brush in-between each pass.

    Another enjoyable close comfortable face and head shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with few small dollops of Creightons Sensitive PSB.

    My face & precious swede are feeling cool smooth, & smelling divine. ;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen. :cool:

    Hi Friends,

    Here my belated Wednesday Shave (24.05.2023)

    Razor: Parker 78r Graphite // Blade: Personna red // Soap: Moon Soaps Old School // Brush: Shavemac + AP Shave Co G5C // Aftershave: Myrsol Agua de Limon (sample)

    What a lovely shave this was. The Moon Soaps Old School is the latest soap addition to my den. What a great great scent. Sweet, but not too much. I like it a lot and couldn ´t stop sniffing at it the first hours after i received it. Very nice. The lather was extremely good with tons of cushion and an exceptional glide. Well done Moon Soaps.

    The razor…man, did i told you how much i LOVE this razor? Especially for the price it is offered? It shaves like the big dogs out there but being much cheaper. Well balanced and i love the optic of the razor. Has some vintage notes to me but being very modern at the same time. BBS in 2,5 passes with ease. The Personna red was a good choice to use with this razor.

    Because i not get the matching Balm to the soap i thought that it would be good to add some „fresh“ notes with an Aftershave. So i took my sample of the Myrsol Agua de Limon which paired perfectly to the sweetness of the soap. It has a lot of Citrus with some „darker“, „earthy“ notes. At least for my nose. Lovely.

    All in all it was an easy 10 out of 10 shave.

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