    SOTD : 19th September 2020.


    Shaving recipe for today.

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

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears ~ Transparent Soap Bar Soap + Wilko Men's shave Oil.
    Brush: Anbbas Boar.
    Bowl Lather.
    Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Soap: OSP Fougere. (Sample)
    Blade: Personna Gem PTFE. (3)
    Razor: Gem ~ Micromatic OC.

    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint ,lavender eucalyptus,+ Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture.
    Pashana Original ASL.
    L'0REAL ~ Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.


    A new shave set up to start the weekend...I'm making this a vintage SE razor & soap sample week starting my weekend shave with the gem micromatic OC razor & the OSP Fougere soap which i haven't used for a while a great performing soap with wonderful scent.
    The gem OC micromatic is the most efficient of all my SE razors it's incredible after only a few shaves with this very assertive vintage lady how comfortable and at ease i was shaving with her.
    "All of my razors are ladies of which i care & treat with the upmost respect."
    "I've said it before treat any razor with respect, learn your technique, gain your shaving confidence and you'll be rewarded with some sublime comfortable error-free shaves".
    This is essential with the Gem micromatic OC...I recommend any traditional wet shaver if giving the chance to experience shaving with a vintage SE razor once if possible...However, in my personal opinion i would recommend starting off with a Ever Ready 1912 (US) or (UK)which are far less aggressive to gain your technique & shaving confidence before moving on to the very efficient gem micromatic open comb.YMMV.

    A pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of L'0REAL ~ Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.

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

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Today SOTD: Shave of the debacle!

    Got up at 4 o'clock, with unmotivated boldness, I let myself be attracted by the 4711 soap whose scent is even better than that of the homonymous EdC.
    But, considering the difficulty I encounter lathering, I wanted to support it with a good scentless soap and, for sure, Valobra matches the two characteristics.

    I started with Valobra , then applied the 4711.
    To say that I did not look like the little Cella man is an understatement, but the glide was good.

    But not being used to do things halfway, and a victim of my laziness, I mounted the Astra that I did not use after the last time and that was handy.
    It flowed very well, but red dots appeared!

    Not only that, but as I passed the stone it burned, and let's not talk about the AS: it seemed to me that I had jumped back about fifty years!

    To err is human, but to persevere is diabolical, so I grabbed the mildest razor and finished shaving.

    It all came out very well, but that burning...

    Ergo I will no longer use the Astras and I will try to find another supporting soap..
    But...further on!


    Sapone PS: Valobra Glicerolanolina
    Sapone 1: Labocos, 4711
