    Sunday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Derby
    Bundubeard Kudu’s Kick SS
    Prep ASB
    Alt Innsbruck AS Splash

    In spite of the chilly morning weather I still opted for a good mentholated soap so the Kudu was a great choice - its beautiful coffee/peppermint scent filled the bathroom, while I was lathering up I dipped my brush slightly in hot water and the lather became so THICK as well as ultra slick, and the menthol sensation felt like Paradise. After a nice massage with the Prep the Alt Innsbruck went on icy cold along with its lovely old school European scent that I love so much. The brand new Derby helped ensure a perfect three pass BBS shave!

    Have a great Sunday - be healthy and safe!

    CS Occam’s Enoch & Schick Proline
    Graydog 26mm Timberwolf Chechen
    B&M Seville in Reserve soap
    B&M Seville in Reserve a/s splash
    Mandarina Duck Black Extreme Eau De Parfum
    A great Sunday morning shave. It’s q/c aside, if you purchased a decent one the Enoch is no slouch in the whisker reducing department. Efficient, smooth and easy to work with. Loading a blade is a minor tussle but, once you get it, it’s a snap. A wonderful day and shaves to all....

    warm shower with Old Spice Timber bar soap
    Homemade PSO
    Parker 80R 2+ passes
    Gillette Platinum Plus (2)
    Arko soap in a warm mug
    DublDuck boar
    Thayers unscented WH
    The Baron A/S

    Picked up a 6-pack of OS Timber bar soap the other day for 3 bucks. Performance is fine and the scent is mild and pleasant but since the label said "sandalwood" I was expecting it to smell like that.

    A nice close shave and I smell better than I look.
