    Saturday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Rapira day 13
    Delmy SC
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash

    This Delmy cream from India is very nice - very nice indeed. It’s also really cheap over there, a lot of barbershops use it on their customers, it has a nice clean, old school scent with excellent lather, a pleasant menthol sensation, and excellent skincare. The Prep and the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave were a perfect finish. Although I only did two passes I still had a great BBS shave that was so enjoyable!

    See y’all tomorrow - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Saturday Straights' Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    De Vergulde Hand Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #277 Silvertip Badger
    Luxor Pro Master
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Cella After Shave Balm

    The De Vergulde Hand Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #277 Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Luxor Pro Master and a Half Gillette Silver Blue 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 : TARMax by Tom White @twhite- Mfg 2021, 1 of 4 proto types, interesting design and very hard to machine top cap out of aluminum IMO. This razor amazes me for smoothness and efficentcy and handles well. I use a modified Micromatic handle for my Tarmax razor head when using it for very enjoyable handling and it is modified to tighten head on settings so not to move at all in use. Had a close comfortable shave this morning with no issues.
    Blade : Personna red(1) sharp & smooth with great longevity.
    Soap : Razorock Lavender, nice masculine scented soap with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Sagrada Familia" 22mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, excellent splay scrubber + great lather painter. This little brush is amazing to use + face feel top notch is excellent. Handle is small so that would be the only draw back I can think of.
    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 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 DE Tarmax with a Personna Red. One of the most comfortable razors I have used, top cap needs to be handled with care because of thinness!

    another sublime shave with the TR-1, I really can't remember why it went out of rotation for so long... and the older donkey/buffalo milk base (pre Siero) is probably my fave WK base..
