    SOTD : 17th September 2020.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower / Nivea Men ~ DEEP CLEAN Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears ~ Transparent Bar Soap + Wilko Men's shave Oil.
    Brush : Turkish Unbranded Boar.
    Bowl Lather.
    Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Lather : Arko Fresh Shaving Cream.
    Blade: Centwin SP. (4)
    Razor: 1950's Ball End Gillette Tech. (US)

    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint, lavender eucalyptus, +Tea Tree , lemon essential Oils + menthol crystals Witch Hazel Mixture./ Gummy ~ Traditional Turkish Tobacco Cologne.
    Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

    The Ball End Gillette Tech / Centwin SP paired together superbly resulting in another pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.
    The Centwin SP blade has excelled itself throughout the week feeling smooth and efficient with each shave...I feel as though i could quite easily get another 1-2 shaves from this blade, but i will retire it, as i still have enough blades to reaquaint myself with that i've only used on odd occasions. Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

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

    Stay safe, and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    What a great scent! I missed B³ last time it came out, now I hope the splash comes back because I really enjoy the scent. Krampert's is a nice compliment in the meantime, and has plenty of good skin care properties. Outstanding shave overall.

    Busy morning, for one who is used to do nothing!

    Definitely my nose is not compatible with the scents of B&M: despite the effort, I cannot feel the tea scent, in the Cheshire!
    That's a pity...

    Now that my mule can't go to the United States, I can't shop without fear of falling under the caudine forks of our amateurish customs!
    With great satisfaction of the Swiss bank that administers my assets.

    Razor, brush, etc... all things used and reused and not worth iterating comments.

    The photo is even uglier than usual, but, as usual, it's not my fault: there was a very bad light at the moment of the shot and the bathroom doesn't receive the light from the North.
    Or is this for painters only?

    Today is Day 17 of SEptember. Up for the challenge today is my Ever-Ready Bathroom Set.

    The Proraso Sandalwood face-lathered well with Jayaruh #18 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Ever-Ready Bathroom Set razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thanks, Chris...I was satisfied with it. Slowly but surely I'm getting used to the "More soap/cream is better" plan.

    Thanks to the enablers, I've just had an excellent shave with this British soap. £4 from Amazon.
    Easy loading from the bar, it produced loads of lovely creamy lather, taking a lot of water in the process. The slickness was pretty good too.
    A lovely lime scent was very apparent throughout the shave.
    I'm so impressed!!!
    I might try it stick wise next shave.
