    DE SOTD, Wednesday, May 31st 2023

    : Razorock 2nd generation Lupo.72 316SS, Mfg Jan 2021>, mid range, excellent machining and finish QC, low profile and cut out rounded corners make it excellent for under the nose shaving. One of the better DE razors I own and I enjoyed a excellent shave this morning with no issues.
    Blade : Personna red (3) sharp and smooth with great longevity.
    Soap : Ogallala Bayrum & sandal wood, nice Bayrum scented soap with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Lucky dice" 26mm brown whiskers fan shaped synthetic knot. Excellent lather generator, heavenly luxury cloud like soft tips, gentle scrubber + excellent lather painter. 26 mm synthetic knots sure impress me for performance.
    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 : Witch hazel beard cleanse + Ogallala Bayrum and sandal wood[​IMG] + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)3 template 9.5.jpg CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my RR Lupo.72 with a Personna red blade.

    What a fine shave :D

    This W&B is a razor I always look forward to using and it was super smooth and efficient. And the soap was a blast. Shout out to @Yehuda D who is always doing a methol bomb of some type or another and I finally had to see what it was like. The MSC is a great soap overall, it’s now up there with my favorites. I love lavender but the scent was minimal. However, the methol was something else. I have nothing to compare it to but when first lathering it on it felt so cold it practically burned. Really nice after effect as well. :happy036:

    Yup. Actually, I have 21 Bay Rums, forgot about Al Capone Bay Rum, and a good size sample of Ethos Bay Rum, courtesy of @Primotenore so I could 3 full weeks but will just finish out this week with Bay Rum.

    No. I came across a bottle at a local salon store years ago and the scent did not grab me. At less than $6 a bottle for 15 ounces the price is what caught my eye.

    I thought you did not like clove? From what I remember when I took a sniff, it had clove scent to it.

    Thursday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 4
    MSC Peppermint Lime SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Peppermint Lime AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    What can I say - it felt like heaven to smell the lovely scent of the Peppermint Lime soap and aftershave - and to feel the icy cold menthol sensation. The soap’s tallow formula promotes magnificent lather that’s so thick, rich, slick, and protective, the menthol is powerful enough to compete with the Stirling Glacials, and the skincare is perfect. Fernando is such a genius at soap and aftershave making. The Prep and the Peppermint Lime aftershave delivered such wonderful postshave care. For my birthday recently I received two Bleu de Chanel perfumes - it’s my number one favourite fragrance so I decided to wear it today - it’s absolutely gorgeous. Three glorious passes gave me a dynamite BBS shave that was lotsa fun!

    Have a good day - be well and stay safe![​IMG]
