    SOTD: 30th November 2023.


    Shaving Recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/ Nivea Men Power 24H Fresh Effect Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Simple Pure Bar Soap.
    Brush: Omega S10018.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Lather: Omega Eucalyptus Shaving Cream.
    Blade: Lord Silver Star. (D4)
    Razor: Merkur 34C.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Nivea Men Replenishing PSB./ P&G Old Spice Bearglove A/S Spray.


    An excellent shave to finish my shaving month off wonderfully...Throughout the month the Lord Silver Star super stainless blade have been superb, becoming a firm favourite again after the long hiatus from not adding them to my regular DE blade rotation.

    It's been a while since I last used the Omega shaving cream and forgot how much easy it is to create a slick protective lather, with a good kick from the Eucalyptus oil to give my ageing face sensors a vibrant winter morning wakeup call!

    A comfortable 2 pass + pick ups silky smooth shave to finish the month off wonderfully.

    Finishing the shave off with a generous squirts of P&G Old Spice Bearglove A/S Spray.

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

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

    Thursday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    HC&C GunSlinger Shave Soap
    Burma Shave Boar Brush
    Gillette Tech Slant by Tom
    Pro 500 Super Platinum
    Hendrick's Witch Hazel
    Lucky Tiger After Shave

    The HC&C GunSlinger Shave Soap lathered well with the Burma Shave Boar Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Tech Slant by Tom and a Pro 500 Super Platinum Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Hendrick's Witch Hazel and then Lucky Tiger After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thursday morning’s vintage shave:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Derby day 4
    Vintage Tryphon Mentolo SS
    Prep ASB
    Mennen Skin Bracer AS Splash

    These Tryphon soaps were discontinued a long time ago and it’s unfortunate because they were really good. This Mentolo is glycerine based like all the other ones from Tryphon, it smells so minty and nice, it lathers like crazy if it’s bloomed for about ten minutes, the menthol sensation is quite strong but not overwhelming, and it’s very skin friendly. The Prep and the Skin Bracer aftershave were a perfect finishing combination. Three passes gave me an awesome BBS shave that I enjoyed immensely!

    Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Nice! Thought I recognized that razor head even before reading your description.
    I have a perfectly functioning Stahly Live, but I don't like the bulky handle. The vibrating feature doesn't impress me, either.
    What does impress me is the head. WOW! When the Stahly comes up in the rotation, I swap the head to the handle of a Fat Handle Tech. Haven't had a bad shave yet!

    Razor : Razorock 2nd Generation Lupo.72- Mfg Jan 2021>, Excellent mid range. I really enjoy this razor for performance and design. The razor design works well under the nose and moustache lines + has some positive blade feel. It just works well for the last 3 years and happy with the shaves it gives. Had a close stellar comfortable shave this morning.
    Blade : Gillette Polsilver SI(4) sharp and smooth with great longevity.
    Soap : La Toja stick- mild scented soap with great lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "lucky casinos" 26mm Timberwolf knot. Excellent lather generator, luxury heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle scrubber + excellent lather painter. One of my best buys from Yaqi for a synthetic brush.
    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 : Proraso green Eucalyptus with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : Dial 10 stellar.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Had a close comfortable shave this morning with my RR 2nd Gen Lupo.72 with a Polsilver SI blade.
