    Wednesday morning:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/new Minora
    Mickey Lee Paradise Frost SS
    Prep ASB
    Aqua Velva Sport AS Splash

    Do I ever love these Minora blades - last year I received a bunch of them from Jaco and I haven’t used them in a while so I wanted to go with one for the next two weeks because they have great longevity and they’re very sharp as well as smooth. The Paradise Frost is a lovely soap - the scent is a beautiful blend of grapefruit and other notes, it’s tallow based so the lather works up thick, rich, and slick, there’s a bit of a menthol sensation, and the postshave feeling is very comfortable. The Prep and the Aqua Velva Sport aftershave beefed up the cooling and left me feeling and smelling great. What an awesome BBS shave this was!

    Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and safe!

    Williams Wednesday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Soap
    Jayaruh #414 Silvertip Badger
    GEM Damaskeene
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Williams Mug Soap lathered well with Jayaruh #414 Silvertip Badger. Two passes and touch ups with the GEM Damaskeene with a Personna GEM SS PTFE gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    How would you compare Booster Iced products to Osage Rub?

    Yaqi Katana
    Oumo boar/ Rubberset 400 #3
    SV Desert Vetiver
    Fine Fresh Vetiver
    I switched back to the Katana for the past few days. I like it more than I used to, once I figured out to cut the blade and not snap it in half to ensure it is totally flat. Way less chatter that way.
    Have a great day all!

    The French ones in the plastic dispenser are a bugger to get out...sort of stuck together.

    Did you happen to get that bowl on Amazon? I have a marble one with the thumb grip in the same place.
