    Ever wonder how many shaves in each tub or tube of Proraso? See below in the Lather report!
    Over the next four days I'll be trying blades I've never used before.
    First shave with a Voskhod Blade. Really happy with the feel and results! Also can't go wrong paying a little over $12.00 CAD for 100 blades! Please refer to https://www.italianbarber.com/ for the details.

    Brush: Simpson T3 Trafalgar
    Bowl: Shave Nation
    Pre shave: Proraso Red
    Lather: Proraso Red (69)
    Razor: Henson AL13 Mild
    Face WTG-XTG-ATG
    Head WTG:XTG-ATG
    Blade: Voskhod(1)
    Razor: Gillette Styler

    The only Tiki soaps I saw were real small in size, I think from WCS.

    A pleasant 2 pass weekend shave. Took the advice of @Primotenore and rode the bar with this shaver. Results were fine, as they were with riding the cap and negating pressure.

    Have a great night all!

    Love both the brush colour and the cool image on the soap! I've hit the point where I've been perplexed for long enough that I just have to ask. What's with the die?

    Greetings,

    A relaxing Halloween Sunday morning shave.

    Since i was kid, Halloween night has always been something i've looked forward to having the usual mass visiting Trick-orTreating presence from Wolverines, Michael Myers, Witches, Werewolfs, Mother-In Laws, Zombies, Vampires, Frankensteins, Mummys & Daddys, Beatlejuices, Batmans, Batwomen, Jokers, Freddy Kruegers,Chuckys,Jason Voorhees knocking on the door queuing up for the boat load of goodies people normally have for them around the world to mark this 'spooky Halloween Trick-or Treating event'.

    As like last year with the Covid-19 pandemic I've had to modify the normal Trick-or Treating activities for this evening and will be leaving some spooky goodies near the front door for the usual Halloween suspects to share & enjoy.

    A enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Cien Sensitive ASB.

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

    Stay safe, and enjoy your 'Spooky Halloween Sunday' ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    First shave with a Bolzano Blade. It's another winner!

    Lather: Proraso Red (70)
    Razor: Henson AL13 Mild
    Face WTG-XTG-ATG

    Blade: Bolzano Superinox(1)
    Razor: Gillette Styler
    Post: Omega Alum Block
    Post: Thayers Witch Hazel

    As expected Red dominated the month of October as it was on all but four days.

    Have a great day!

    Sunday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Minora day 5
    MSC Peppermint Latte SS
    Prep ASB
    Alt Innsbruck AS Splash
    Quorum EdT

    Did I ever enjoy myself this morning - the Peppermint Latte is such a lovely soap. The scent is exactly what it says - it’s a beautiful blend of peppermint and espresso coffee, the lather is so thick, rich, super slick as well as protective, the menthol sensation is terrific, and the postshave feeling is wonderful - leave it to Fernando to produce a treasure like this. The Prep needs no explanation because it’s so fantastic, and I have to try to get some more Alt Innsbruck because my bottle is finito. I really love this stuff. Another magnificent BBS shave this morning!

    Have a good Sunday - be well and safe!
