Very good close shave!
Thanks Matt. To be honest I love Hallows and others, but I have too many soaps to buy duplicates. I like variations of the artwork and updated formulas, and have been tempted, but have come to the conclusion that there is always something new I always want to try. I never worry about using up any product that is limited or out of production because it never ends. Like I preordered the Dr Jon Halloween set - it will take forever to use up 3 soaps, but could not resist the cool theme. I am actually trying to be more selective and just buy things that unique or different from what I have. I will replace things like Hallows if available when they are finished. There are just too many fun and great products today.

Shaving recipe for today.
Prep: Warm shower / Original Source ~ Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.
Cold wet flannel to my face.
Simple ~ Sensitive Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
Brush: Anbbas Boar.
Frankensoap : Pears Transparent bar Soap + Wilkinson Sword Soap bowl.

Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./David Beckham ~ Instinct ASL./ Boots ~ Moisturising Lotion.
A relaxing Sunday morning shave.
My homemade Frankensoap concoction provided good slick protective lather for the shave leaving a good post shave feel.
A good acceptable shaving soap ok it's not in the same league as a traditionally made shaving soap but i didn't expect it to be.Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of Boots ~ Moisturising Lotion.
My face is feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.
Stay safe, and enjoy you Sunday ladies & gentlemen.
Some Agar/Oud for Spicy Sunday!!!!!

Have A Great Day!
You can see the type of day here from the photo....
The Constitution clearly states that the place for the sun is the South and the place for grey and fog is the North: why do they not abide by the law?
We are full of laws, but no one to enforce them!
Of course... this way I could use lavender, but I could have used it even if it had rained: the Constitution says nothing about it.
But even if it did...
If there was a decent weather, perhaps I wouldn't use lavender, but it would be 'my' choice, and not dictated by the climate.
I am very upset, even if I am pleased by the scent of lavender!

The Speick Shaving Cream face-lathered well with Jayaruh #414 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the C.V. Heljestrand razor with a C.V. Heljestrand Wedge blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Family Dollar Old Spice. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
