    SOTD: 12th November 2022.

    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Nivea Men Power Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face & head.
    Palmolive Naturals Olive & Milk Bar Soap.
    Brush: Brush: Yaqi 26mm Rainbow Brown Synthetic. (Faux Horse)
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: Nivea Men Sensitive Pro Ultra-Calming Liquid Shaving Cream.
    Razor: (Face) Parker 55SL Semi-Slant. - Treet Dura Sharp. (D1)
    Razor: Ever Ready 1914. (US) (brass) (Head/Dome) - Personna Gem PTFE SS. (D1.)

    Cold water face & head wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face & Head Rinse. / Alum Rub. / Cold water Face & Head Rinse. / Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. / Brut Attraction totale ASL. / Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.


    (Face & Head Shave.)

    A new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend.

    A wonderful performance from both the Parker 55SL and the E. R. 1912. The Parker 55SL is like all my other Parker DE razors has paired together with all of DE blades i have paired it up with. Some have been better than others, but all have given me acceptable results to date.

    SE razors are such comfortable razors especially for head/dome shaving the thickness & rigidity of both the Personna Gem & Injector PTFE SS blades are fixed firmly with the SE design which eliminates blade chatter to the slightest. once you adjust to their shaving angle, they are a pleasure to shave with.

    The Treet Dura Sharp Teflon coated is another very smooth efficient blade and another blade i should add to my blade rotation more regular.
    A very close comfortable face & head shave with errors to report.

    Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.

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

    Enjoy the start of the weekend, ladies & gentlemen. :cool:

    Cold Water Rinse
    Shannon's Soaps Indigo Oud Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #371 Badger/Boar
    Supply SE Injector
    Supply Black Label Blade
    Pinaud Citrus Musk Cologne

    The Shannon's Soaps Indigo Oud Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #371 Badger/Boar brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Supply SE Injector Razor and the Supply Black Label Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk Cologne. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Saturday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Astra Green day 4
    De Vergulde Hand Extra Fris SS
    Aveeno Moisturizer
    De Vergulde Hand ASB
    Drakkar Noir EdT

    My second time using the Extra Fris version of De Vergulde Hand and I must say that I enjoy it a lot. I saw a You Tube video made by a gentleman who didn’t like it at all - in fact after his first shave with it he threw it in his garbage can. I find it has a very pleasant scent, it definitely lathers much better face lathering rather than bowl lathering, and it leaves a comfortable postshave feeling. The Aveeno moisturizer works really well - it’s unscented so it doesn’t interfere with any fragrances, the De Vergulde Hand balm is so soothing - not only that, there seems to be a mild cooling sensation from it, and it has the beautiful old school scent as the original De Vergulde Hand soap which I find pairs well with the Drakkar Noir fragrance. Three passes resulted in a most enjoyable BBS shave!

    Have a great weekend - be well and safe![​IMG]

    I had not used this razor in a while. It is pleasant shaver.

    Razor - Gillette
    Blade - Treet "Carbon Steel" (1)
    Pre-shave - Proraso RED
    Soap - Ogallala Bay Rum & Vanilla
    Brush - Simpson Trafalgar T1 synthetic
    Post-shave - Thayers toner "Rose Petal" & Proraso balm
    AS - Captain's Choice "Bay Rum"

    Very pleasant shave. I used the scupper mug filled with hot water. Showered and pre-heated the mug & brush. It's nice to use warm lather for me. I did a 2-passer with no cleanup. Alum bar was silent. No cuts, nicks, or weepers! Very nice and smooth & smelling great! I have a birthday party to go to today for a friend who turned 80. Live music will be there and there is a jam for guitar players afterwards. Noon to 4PM. Theo will be mad at me for being gone. I been out of the house all the past week and he does NOT like that. LOL

    He had to get into things and in my way, of course. DSCN1352.JPG DSCN1361.JPG

    BAUME.BE (OG Formula)~~Semogue 2012 SE~~Gustave Lalune Mon Fier Destrier~~Aramis Tobacco Reserve
    Woke to snow in the heartland. :prrr:
    Time for a wintery shave, beginning with some lovely lather, courtesy of those wonderful Belgians at BAUME.BE
    While the new formula is good, the OG rocks. Once again, for those interested,
    Fendrihan's sells the original formula---but for how long :signs002:
    My razor choice is an homage to TSD's exiled member, Bill M.
    TSD misses you!!! (most of us, anyway)
    This is a drop-forged beauty from France and man-o-man does it take a superior edge and give a fantastic shave.
    Stank du jour is the sadly-discontinued Aramis Tobacco Reserve

    @wristwatchb consider yourself fortunate to own a bottle. The price has skyrocketed to $200.
    I love this stank.

    Soap: 345 Soap Co: Breakfast Group (Deus Vult)
    Post: CeraVe moisturising lotion..

    A shave that can be summed up in one word... FAULTLESS. A warm, comforting fragrance, exemplary cushion and glide, and a very comfortable post shave feeling. Yes, 345 Soap Co: Breakfast Group is definitely a soap that is second to none, and deserves to rub shoulders with the big guns.
