    Parker Variant (5,4,3.5) & Bolzano SuperInox #2
    RR Beehive 28mm
    RockRose Apothecary Cypress Lime
    Humphreys Alcoholado Maravilla
    Nivea 2in1 A/S lotion
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme
    Almost forgot how good the Parker Variant performs. Just a wonderful 2 pass plus touch ups and it was a done deal. The RockRose soap/cream is just an excellent performer. Good lather, above average cushion and great slickness. And the scent is just amazing for a brisk morning shave. I'm feeling good. Have a great day and shaves Gents...... :love055:

    Sunday shave
    Hot water wash with a washcloth and Nivea men's face wash
    Rubberset/ custom two band finest (restored by @GDCarrington)
    Bombed Soap Commander Passion
    M J Higgins 5/8 full hollow spike
    Crusellas Sandalo
    Soap Commander Passion balm
    Today's shave was nice. Three passes left me smooth and for the most part comfy. I noticed a weeper just under my chin (guess I'm a bit rusty making the turn over my chin). Still a very nice shave with a fairly old Sheffield blade (neat because it's a namesake)
    Finished with Sandalo and a passion rub.
    Hope y'all did as well, or better.

    Razor: Personna Flexhead
    Blade: Gillette Twinjector (5)
    Pre Shave: Homemade
    Lather: Proraso Green
    Brush: VDH Badger
    AS: Mennen Afta

    An easy 2 pass shave, WTG/ATG, clean up after 1st pass and a light slurry clean up to end up with an almost perfect shave. I can`t get over how easy and smooth this pairing works. Doesn`t seem to matter much which brand of shave cream I use. Thinking about a hard cake soon. Wish me luck. I`m running out of ideas about the newspapers. Wishing great shaves for all. God Bless.
