    That's quite a loft on that Semogue. Does it tend towards the floppy?

    Not at all. It’s just well broken in and probably my favorite boar brush.

    SOTD : 18th September 2021.

    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Nivea Men Power Fresh Shower Gel.

    Pre:
    Cold wet flannel to my face & head.
    FatFace Ocean Escape Soap Bar.
    Brush: Anbbas Boar.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: The Body Shop Maca Root Shave Cream.
    Blades: Euromax Platinum Single Edge. (D1) /Personna Gem modified PTFE. (D1)
    Razors: (Face) Yaqi SE Katana. + (Head) Valet Auto Strop VC1.

    Post:
    Cold water face & head wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face & Head Rinse. /Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Baylis & Harding Sandalwood & Amber ASB./Oud 24 Hours EDP.

    Greetings,

    A new shave set up to start the weekend....After a two week run with my vintage SE razors I'll be using the Yaqi SE Katana with all my shaves.

    After the comfortable shaves that i had with the Valet Auto Strop last week, out of curiosity, i tried doing a head shave with it.

    The verdict?.....A very comfortable head shave, after my first few strokes i felt at ease, the fresh Gem PTFE cut through my head stubble with smooth mild efficiency...As with every razor i use for head shaving 'if it requires it or not' i rub my fingertips with a alum block which gives a good firm grip without the fear of the razor slipping from my hand whilst shaving and slicing my precious swede to pieces.

    The Euromax Platinum half blades i find isn't an aggressive blade, but is a great matched with the very assertive katana making a smooth efficient duo.

    The Maca Root shave cream never fails to provide a slick protective lather which was more than adequate for both shaves...Superb stuff!

    A enjoyable near BBS face & head shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a few small squirts of Oud 24 Hours EDP to the pulse points.

    My face & precious swede are feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.;)

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

    Saturday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Cella Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger
    GEM Damaskeene OC
    Treet CS
    CWR
    Cella ASB

    The Cella Shave Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the GEM Damaskeene OC with a Treet CS Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Cella ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Saturday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Gillette day 4
    Top Ten Sensitive SC
    Nip Man ASB
    Reef Point Fougère Santal AS Splash

    This Top Ten Sensitive is a fantastic cream from Bulgaria which I traded for a few years ago and I love it. The scent is really nice - aquatic with minty notes, it’s very concentrated so just a small dab on both cheeks gives thick, rich, slick lather, there’s a pleasant menthol sensation, and it’s very skin friendly. The Nip Man balm is so cooling, moisturizing, as well as soothing, and the Fougère Santal aftershave from Reef Point smells gorgeous - not only that, it gives a strong menthol punch. Another picture perfect BBS shave!

    Have a great day - be well and safe!
