    That must have taken you a long time to get all that Vaanilla Sandalwood out of the Stoylin puck and into the mug.

    Razor - Shave Nation SN-250 with Razorock handle
    Blade - Rapira fresh blade (last one I have) single use and binned
    Soap - Captain's Choice "Land Ho" (very thristy soap!)
    Pre-shave - Proraso Red
    Brush - Simpson "Commodore"
    Post-shave - Thayers toner "Rose Petal" & Captain's Choice "Land Ho" balm
    AS - Pinaud "Whiskey Woods"

    It was a pleasant 1-pass shave with some cleanup. I showered before bed so, I warmed face with HOT washcloth with I warmed the scupper & brush with HOT water. I had to add water to the soap 3 times! Then it was a bit soupy. Not one of my favorite soaps for whisking but, I do like the scent. I even had left the brush full of water! The scent is one of my stronger soaps and very pleasant. It is a cream so, it surprises me that it needs so much water! I did a single pass WTG and that was good enough to stop right there! I went ahead and did a little cleanup along my jawline and neck. I guess the blade/razor combo was very efficient! Shame that was the last of those blades. Pleasant and close shave. No cuts, nicks, or weepers and alum bar was pretty much silent.

    I plan on working on wood today.

    I bought a refill Puck from Stirling, fit right in with a little help into my Fine Accoutrements bowl.
    Since Fine stopped selling their soap pucks.

    Oh, you just dumped it into the Stoylin refill, or did you carve it out and place it in the refill. I ask because I just finished the bath soap of same name and just used it to wash my hands at the sink.....made a mess of its surroundings during each use and it took a while to clean around the area before it was finished. The one I use now isn't as messy.

    Today's shower...

    Warm shower using Kirkland Signature Bar Soap with Shea Butter
    Hair washed with Mane 'n Tail shampoo
    Beard brush-washed with Yardley Shea Buttermilk soap

    Friday was my last shave. I have a new Significant Other, and they have expressed a wish for me to be bearded. Ah, the things we do for love ;)

    The Kirkland Signature soap was furnished by my SO and I have to say it's really nice soap for what it is. As wit the Yardley, it can be whipped up into a nice lather that quickly goes flat on the face, making it not quite usable for a shave.

    Will still do weekly manscaping shaves with my shaving gear.

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #371 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Single Ring and the Astra SP Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Tuesday morning:

    Hot shower
    Two hot towels
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 7
    Stirling Sharp Dressed Man SS
    Proraso Blue ASB
    Max Disinfecting AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    After not using the Sharp Dressed Man for a long time it felt wonderful to get it on my face and enjoy that gorgeous Green Irish Tweed type scent and awesome rich, super slick lather as well as that soothing, comfortable postshave care. The Proraso Blue balm has a nice scent which I find hard to describe and it’s very moisturizing and soothing. Finally the Max Disinfecting aftershave from Bulgaria went on with a big sting but then it felt great - its scent is nice but it doesn’t interfere with the magnificent scent of the Bleu de Chanel. Three passes gave me a dynamite BBS shave that was so pleasurable!

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