    Thanks, Steve. Great scent. I'm going to try and get at least a couple more uses out of it during this holiday season.

    Yes this was Fine’s soap from a year or so ago when they still used the Tabac soap base.

    Another solid shave with the Tech this morning. I like the scent of this local soap, but I think I'd like to try their tallow base next time. Finishing with the Cool is always a favourite.
    Have a great night all!

    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Pomegranate & Apple Extract Shower Gel.

    Pre:
    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Sagrada Familia Synthetic.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Lather : Clubman Pinaud Shave Soap.
    Blade: Treet 7 Days Platinum. (D2)
    Razor: Parker 98r.

    Post:
    Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse./ Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./ Benjamins Mentholated Bay Rum./L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.

    Greetings,

    A very brisk invigorating early morning cold water shave,
    I haven't used the clubman Pinaud soap for a while and forgot how much a great in-expensive soap it is.

    Last outing of the Treet 7DP, which has paired together with the parker 98r wonderfully out of the subcontinent blades i have used throughout the month so far with the 98r these have been a firm favourite.
    The shining stars of my shaves this week have been the L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB & the Treet 7DP.

    Another enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.

    My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Razor: Blackbird Titanium
    Blade: Wizamet
    Brush: Vein Quartz/Horse
    Soap: Sheep Fat Test Soap
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: Nivea Deep
    Fragrance: Amouage Journey
    Consecutive Daily Shaves - # 1,114
    Another delightful use of the test soap and not much more to say about it. Just getting some more uses before final results are reported olschoolsteel The Horse on 2nd use was shedding like the 1st use. Hopefully it will slow down to a reasonable level or it may get swapped for a nice Boar. That'd be a shame as I'd like to have a horse in the stable..........(see what I did there) and it would be an appropriate handle to have one in. If it stays I may need a little horse figurine like my Boar and Badgers. The Titanium Blackbird just flat out works for me in spades which is so odd as I didn't care for it in SS at all. Have a great day Folks !

    Thanksgiving Day's Shave

    zcws.jpg

    Cold Water Rinse
    Strop Shoppe Unscented Shave Soap
    Jayaruh 287 Synthetic
    GEM-LP
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    CWR
    Aqua Velva Musk AS

    Day 25 of 3D Printed Razor Month

    The Strop Shoppe Unscented Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh 287 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the GEM-LP 3D Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I can’t understand why the hell P&G changed the scent - it doesn’t make any sense to me. Like the saying goes - if ain’t broken don’t fix it.

    Thursday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Minora day 2
    Bundubeard Kudu’s Kick SS
    Prep ASB
    Reef Point Fougère Santal AS Splash

    These Minora blades are absolutely awesome - they’re very sharp, smooth, as well as forgiving, and they have excellent longevity. Jaco’s Kudu soap is glycerine based, it has such a beautiful coffee/peppermint scent that I really love, the lather is so thick, rich, and protective, it has a terrific menthol sensation, and the postshave feeling is great. The Prep gave me such wonderful additional care, and the Fougère Santal aftershave from Reef Point was a gift from my darling wife - it smells so gorgeous and it has plenty of menthol in it. Smooth as silk from three easy peasy passes!

    Be well and safe - enjoy your day and your shaves!

    I'm with you a million % on that. Y'know, if Gillette Foamy and Mennen Skin-Bracer have slightly "new" scents, I hope that happens over my dead body. And we can throw Clubman Original and Bill Neumann into that persuasion.

    Razor: Razorock SLOC, Mfg 2017>Excellent upper mild range, this has to be one of best open comb deals for newbies or seasoned shavers IMO. Very carefree shaving and results are great. Stainless steel handle with Zamac head.
    Blade: Gillette Nacet (2) Sharp and smooth with great longevity. Really great pairing with this razor IMO.
    Soap : Ach Brito Lavanda cream, unique lavender mild scent, excellent lather qualities.(misted)
    Brush: Yaqi viper 24mm boar brush [​IMG] , excellent lather generator, soft split end bristles, nice scrubber + great lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Ach Brito Lavada AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion (balm) + scentless.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers =[​IMG] Excellent shave with my RR SLOC + a Gillette Nacet blade.
