    Thursday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Proraso Green Tea/Oatmeal Shaving Cream
    Jayaruh #371 Badger
    Razorock Black Hawk
    Feather Professional
    Aqua Velva Musk AS

    The Proraso Green Tea/Oatmeal Shaving Cream lathered well with Jayaruh #371 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Razorock Black Hawk Razor and a Feather Professional 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...

    It's time to get back to the shavettes! The shave with the Feather DX was nice. I did manage to re-open a nick on the corner of my mouth! I am amazed at how close these Guard blades can shave! Not as close on my neck but passable. I even have the switching hands working better for me and not as awkward.

    Razor - Feather DX shavette
    Blade - Feather ProGuard 1st
    pre-shave - TOBS Herbal Gel
    Soap - MWF
    Brush - Classic Shaving synthetic
    Post - Thayers Toner & Geo F Trumper "Skin Food"
    AS - Clubman "Whiskey Woods"

    Washed face and pre-heated bowl/brush. I bloomed the MWF with hot water. I am getting to the bottom of the TOBS Herbal Gel. Not getting again. Works nice but, not for the price! I did a 2-pass with minor cleanup along jawline. WTG & ATG. I did get some feedback from the alum bar due to trying so hard to get close on my jawline! Right side is hardest!

    But, I seem to have the DX somewhat dialed in. It did not bite me with lots of cuts. I did re-open a cut on my corner of the mouth. I had both shavettes out in case I had trouble using the DX but, I did not end up using the japanese style.

    Passable shave that was enjoyable. I do need more practice with the DX so, I will use it for a few days.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears with Mint Extracts Transparent Bar Soap.

    Lather : The Body Shop Maca root & Aloe shaving cream.
    Blade: Feather Hi Stainless. (D4)
    Razor: Parker Variant. (Settings) 2.5-wtg,2.5-xtg,3-atg+pick ups.

    Early Morning Shave,

    A wonderful performance from the Parker Variant/Feather Hi Stainless duo to finish my shaving week, and to start September off on a high note.

    Without sounding as though I'm repeating myself i have a great fondness for all my parker razors, but the Variant is my favourite not because of it's cost ,no for the simple reason, that this solidly made versatile adjustable razor has gave me consistently irritation-free silky smooth shaves with every shave I've had with it.

    My appreciation for the efficient Feather Hi Stainless has grown immensely.

    An enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.

    My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Hembree Not as pretty smelling

    Razorock Hawk with solid bar plate.
    Razorock thick bar stainless steel handle.
    Feather Pro Super blade.
    Razorock 400 Plissoft synthetic brush.
    Razorock What the Puck soap / Barber Shop scent.
    Timeless Razor shave bowl.
    Irish Chestnut by Andy Hilfiger cologne.

    I had forgot what a great shaver the Hawk is. Three very nice drama free shaves. The Razorock soap punches way above it price point and I mean way above it.

    Happy Thursday everyone!

    Wednesday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 2
    Tcheon Fung Sing Sottozero SS
    Proraso Blue ASB
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS Splash
    Brut Deodorant Spray
    Brut EdT

    This Sottozero is a very nice albeit confusing soap because in Italian sottozero means “below zero” but the fact is although menthol is listed as an ingredient it’s almost undetectable. The scent is minty and very pleasant, the lather is so thick, rich as well as cushiony but it isn’t too slick, but the skincare is decent. The Proraso Blue balm which I bought yesterday smells great, it’s so soothing as well as moisturizing, and there’s a bit of a cooling effect. Finally the Aqua Velva aftershave and the Brut left me feeling nice and cool and smelling great. My Tech is one helluva fabulous razor - although it’s mild it sure gives awesome shaves - this one was no exception!

    Happy September - be well and safe!

    Cold water shave :Animatedfrozensmily:

    This was my second shave with the SCS razor and it was better than yesterday. Today I used a Gillette Nacet blade rather than a Wizamet and had a more pleasant shave.
