    Another sweet shave with this 3d printed razor by @SlimGem . I will be shaving with this razor through Friday of this week.

    The TSD Iced Lime Shaving Stick lathered well with the Jayaruh #4 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 3D InjecTR v1 Razor and the Personna Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Menthol Monday:

    What a Grand Freeze!

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Astra Green day 6
    MSC Frosted Lavender SS
    Thayer’s Lavender Witch Hazel
    Prep ASB
    MSC Frosted Lavender AS Splash
    Christian Dior Eau Sauvage EdT

    The best way to describe this Frosted Lavender soap and aftershave is a whiff of soothing relaxation on a twenty below zero morning - that’s how frigid this stuff is. IMHO, this is the most gorgeous lavender scent I’ve ever had, the soap’s tallow formula - in fact ALL of Fernando’s soaps are practically identical to the delightful Stirling soaps in terms of texture, ingredients, and performance. This Frosted Lavender gave me tons of beautifully scented lather that was so thick, rich, creamy, SLICK, and protective, the menthol sensation began to pummel my face immediately exactly like a Glacial soap would, and the postshave feeling was so soothed as well as relaxed. The Thayer’s Lavender witch hazel has very little scent but it still feels great on my skin, and the Frosted Lavender aftershave is also witch hazel based, it never stings or burns, it smells as beautiful as the soap, and it’s so friggin frigid. The wife loves the smell of the Eau Sauvage on me and so do I - this fragrance is an old classic. This little Junjie razor is so efficient in spite of how mild it is - three passes left me completely stubble free - what a cracker of a shave this was!

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

    Razor: Henson AL13 mild
    Blade: Gillette Wilkinson Sword
    Post: witch hazel

    Pleasant shave. I'm still trying out blades in my Henson AL13. First impressions of Gillette Wilkinson Sword are mixed: maybe not as sharp as I would like in this mild razor, but the result is acceptable and smooth without irritation. I'll try it again tomorrow.

    The Feather blade has made this ‘Canadian Rocket’ sing the past few days. Just perfect in a mild shaver…I need to use these blades more for sure.

    I like your shave gear, Mike. Are you sensitive to fragrances, or is a partner?

    Thank you.

    I really, really like these bowls from Symmetrical Pottery. I have one in green and another they call brown but looks yellowish to me.

    I suffer from rosacea. Many facial products cause me to have red patches on my cheeks and forehead. It was only when I began using a fragrance-free shave soap that my face cleared up. It was a significant change - my dermatologist noticed and commented "whatever you are doing, it's working!".

    So I avoid fragrances and menthol in soaps, shampoos, lotions, and aftershaves. Many artisan soap makers offer fragrance-free versions of their products, so I have plenty of variety to play with! I can allow myself an indulgence once a week - Williams Wednesday. I have some vintage Williams soap that lost most of its fragrance years ago. Once a week with that soap doesn't bother my face.

    SOTD: 29th November 2022.


    Shaving recipe for today.

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

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Palmolive Naturals Olive & Milk Bar Soap.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Naples Tuxedo Synthetic.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: Arko Hydrate Shaving cream.
    Blade: V12 Super Platinum Blade. (D1)
    Razor: Baili BD 191.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Alum Rub. /Cold Water Rinse/Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. /Gummy Traditional Turkish Lavender Cologne. / Cien Aloe Vera Body Lotion.


    Early morning shave.

    Everything in my shave set up paired together wonderfully.

    Maiden shave with the V12 Super Platinum Blade, which I've had for quite some time and only got round to try them out. the verdict? A surprisingly good blade I find they have a good balance of smoothness & efficiency, something I really like in a blade.

    They paired together with the Baili BD 191 exceptionally well making a mild smooth comfortable duo. As for the longevity if i can get two good acceptable outings from them, which i assume i will then I'll be content.

    I normally bowl lather when using tube shave creams but this morning i tried putting it directing into the damp synthetic and face lathering, dipping the brush tips when more water was needed building up the lather to the consistency I prefer.

    A very enjoyable 2 pass + pick-ups close comfortable near BBS shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Cien Aloe Vera Body Lotion.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine. ;)

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