    Greetings,
    Recently I've been having some fantastic shaves with DE blades that I have hardly gave any attention to...The Treet Dura Sharp paired together with the R41 resulted in a BBS 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report.
    The third pass today wasn't required, my face was near bbs on the second pass after a quick pick up pass my face was BBS smooth.
    An excellent very efficient comfortable smooth shave.
    Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

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

    Stay safe and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Shaving recipe for today.

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

    Pre:

    Cold wet flannel to my face.

    Pears ~ Transparent Soap Bar / Wilko Men's Shaving Oil.
    Brush: Yaqi 26mm Rainbow Brown Synthetic. (Faux Horse)
    Face Lather.
    Soap: Razorock "What The Puck? !" ~ Lime Burst.
    Blade: Treet ~ Black Carbon. (1)
    Razor: Parker ~ 55sl Semi-Slant.

    Post:

    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade lavender eucalyptus, +Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./ Duru Lemon Cologne.

    Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

    Greetings,
    A new shave set up to start the weekend...Last week i reacquainted myself with the Treet dura sharp blade and was pleasantly surprised how good the shaves i had with them.This week i'm carry on the Treet Carbon blade another DE blade i've only used on the odd occasion since i've had them.
    As a general rule with a Carbon blade i use them for two shaves then i' discard them to my blade bin...
    I know i could possibly get more than two shaves from them but for what they cost it's hardly worth taking the unnecessary risk just to get a extra shave.
    The Parker 55sl Semi-Slant /Treet carbon blade worked really well together. I'm amazed with myself that i haven't used the Treet carbon blades more often that's what happens when you have a vast assortment of DE blades and reach for your regular favourites you completely forget you have other blades in your blade DE blade collection that are equally as good or if not better...'I live and learn something new with every shave'.
    A pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

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

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

    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    It's been a considerable amount of time since i last used my Merkur 39c slant like my Parker 55sl Semi-Slant, it paired together with the Treet Black Carbon blade wonderfully resulting in a 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.
    The Maca Root Cream is becoming a firm favourite of mine again since i recently reaquainted myself with it. Superb shaving cream.
    Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Nivea Men ~ Sensitive Cooling PSB.

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