    Razor: Ever Ready Streamline
    Blade: Gem
    Brush: Sorrentino Sea Foam
    Soap: Signature Soaps Hibernia
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: Pinaud Citrus Musk
    Fragrance: John Varvatos Dark Rebel
    Consecutive Daily Shaves - # 1,088

    Took the new to me Streamline for a spin today and I love the heft of these baby's as well as the more blade feel. What a nice, close and drama free shave. I'm told this is the earlier model and I don't know which is more aggressive as one is purported to be, but this was a great shave. I just had to be mindful of pressure compared to a 1912. I can't say anything about this soap that most don't know already. The scent is a great citrus lemon and lime to me with other stuff playing in there for the more in tune schnozzles out there. Most in Europe know of Brians soaps but here in the states you can to get from Pastuer's although Brian ships to the states as well. That's it for now and hope all have a GREAT weekend !!

    Saturday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Eufros Sandalo Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #41 2-band Badger
    PAA Starling
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS

    The Eufros Sandalo Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #41 2-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the PAA Starling Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Saturday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Minora day 4
    Gillette Menthol SC
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    The last time I used this Gillette Menthol cream was about three years ago so I decided to pull it out this morning and give it a spin. The scent is nice enough, it lathers great, the menthol sensation is pretty strong - not overwhelming but you can definitely feel it especially during the second and third passes. The postshave feeling is good but not as good as some of my other creams. The Prep gave me such wonderful soothing, and the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave….. wow do I ever love it. Smoother than silk from three passes - what a shave this was!

    Enjoy your weekend and your shaves - be well and safe!

    The JR Boar #374 whipped up the two kinds of lather I enjoy for my shaves. The Castle Forbes Lavender really smelled great this morning. I was really in the mood for a lavender shave, and feeling lazy since I hadn’t prepared a straight last night. So I grabbed the Tedalus and loaded a fresh Feather Super. This barber’s razor just feels great in hand, and shaves my mug exactly like any of my best straights. Two passes followed by some focused neck buffing and flatblading left the mug dolphin smooth.

    Since there’s only two dome shaves left for OC October, I decided to finish the month off with my two favorite Gillette OC’s. Today’s noggin shave featured my Gillette New Standard. While not a Gillette TTO fanboy, by any means, I do enjoy shaving with their original Old Type (OT). But my absolute favorite Gillettes are any of their New series models that followed the OT. That particular head design works well for me, and never fails to deliver a top tier, barber’s grade dome shave as it did this morning. Two ATG passes and I was velveteen smooth from dome to shoulders.

    RAZOR: Tedalus Essence (Mug), Gillette New Standard (Dome)
    BLADE: Feather Super (Mug), Feather DE (Dome)
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: JR Boar #374
    CREAM: Castle Forbes Lavender
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Thayers WH. Finished with Fine Lavender Pour Homme and Chatillon Lux Lavender Toner.

    Saturday Morning Luxury Shave!
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird
    Blade: Nacet
    Brush: Trafalgar T3
    Soap: Wholly Kaw 1776
    AS: Royall Spyce
    Chose some of my favorites for this morning's luxury shave. The Royall Spyce was on my Dad's dresser for years. He no longer used it and gave it to me when I helped him move in July. I happened to bring a new tub of 1776 I acquired for Independence Day. That scent combination is as perfect and satisfying as fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and cold milk.

    Paul, I'm not sure if Tiki Soaps is still around as it has been years since I've seen any new soaps from Amanda posted on any forum.
