    SOTD: 27th September 2022.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Mandarin & Lemongrass Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears with Mint Extracts Transparent Bar Soap.
    Brush: Semogue 1438.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: Clubman Pinaud Shave Soap.
    Blade: Dorco Prime Platinum 'Snapped in 1/2'. (D1)
    Razor: Yaqi Katana.

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. / Benjamins Mentholated Bay Rum. / L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.


    Early Morning Shave.

    I can't recall the last time that i used the clubman Pinaud soap and forgot how good this in-expensive soap is.

    Because it is almost a croap-like soap it doesn't need blooming before mixing and it provides a good slick protective lather it has a really nice scent not overpowering and a good post shave feel.

    An enjoyable 2 pass + pick-ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of L'OREAL Soothing Birch Sap PSB.

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

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

    LOVE the new soap. I will use again tomorrow. Very nice and slick Tobacco scent is nice and reminds me of my cigarellos. I did a 2-pass shave WTG & ATG with minor cleanup along jawline and chin. No cuts, nicks, or weepers. Alum bar was silent. VERY pleasant shave.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #424
    Cobra Classic
    Feather Professional
    Tabac AS

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #424 brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Cobra Classic Razor and the Feather Professional Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Hi Friends,

    Here my Sunday Shave (25.09.2022)

    Razor: Blackland Blackbird // Blade: Gillette Wilkinson India // Soap: PAA Cavendish // Brush: Shavemac 173 Synthetic // Aftershave: PAA Cavendish

    A very nice shave. I love the Soap and the Aftershave. The word „cozy“ and „comfortable“ has been created just for this scent. The razor is very good, but for me personally the RazoRock Lupo SS .95 is THE razor. It combines smoothness with gentleness and is extremely thorough. The Blackbird might be a hair more thoroughly, but it is just a hair. The Blackbird shaves more aggressive without having that smoothness from the Lupo SS.95. Nevertheless a great razor.

    The Alum block gave me quite a lot of feedback. That is not the case with the Lupo SS .95…you see, i LOVE my Lupo.

    This is it for now folks.

    Take your time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    Razor : Yaqi slant- Mfg 2019, well built, interesting side shields for added strength but can make getting the blade out a little harder, this aggressive slant likes a steep angle(riding the bar) and it will reward a person with excellent shaves. I place a blade shim underneath because of lots of blade reveal and it becomes one of the best slants I ever used of my 3 slants it seems. It will bite when careless with my old flabby face skin as we age a little(skin stretching slightly works).
    Blade : Gillette silver blue (5) sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity.
    Soap : Ach Brito Lavanda cream[​IMG], nice mild minty Lavender with excellent lather qualities. Ach Brito is a Classic soap company and have been around for over 130 yrs based in Portugal.
    Brush : Yaqi Aqua 24mm high mountain silver tip, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, nice splay scrubber, excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Ach Brito Lavanda AS[​IMG] with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + 1 small nick =[​IMG] Excellent shave with my Yaqi slant with a GSB blade.
    Have some great shaves!

    Wednesday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/new Wilkinson Sword
    MSC Frosted Bay Rum SS
    Prep ASB
    Floid Vigoroso AS Splash

    After not shaving for two days because of Rosh Hashanah my beard stubble was so thick and heavy that I had to do the hot towel thing for about fifteen minutes after my shower. My beautiful Yaqi Barber Pole synthetic churned up such awesome lather from the Frosted Bay Rum soap which has such a gorgeous scent, the menthol sensation felt heavenly, and the postshave care was so soothing. I swear, Fernando is indeed a soap and aftershave genius. The Prep and the Floid Vigoroso aftershave were a perfect finish. The new Wilkinson Sword blade ensured a perfect BBS shave that I enjoyed so much!

    Have a great day - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Brush - Simpson T2 Trafalgar

    AS - Leviathan

    I do love this soap and the balm & aftershave! I don't bloom this one. I heated the bowl and brush with HOT water while I wash my face. Cool start today @ 48 degrees! I shake out most of the water from the brush and load it with the soap. I did have to add a couple splashed of water to get my nice creamy lather. I do not find this to be a very thirsty soap. Very slick! The razor glides easily. I did a 2-pass shave with no cleanup. WTG & ATG. Alum bar was silent. The balm is the kind where a little goes a LONG way. Nice stuff!
