    Shaving recipe for today.

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

    Pre:
    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears ~ Transparent Bar Soap + Wilko Men's shave Oil.
    Brush : Omega S10018.
    Bowl Lather.
    Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Soap : Le Pere`Lucien ~ Foug─ôre. (Sample)
    Blade: Personna Gem PTFE. (3)
    Razor: Ever Ready 1912. (UK)

    Post:
    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint, lavender eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./ Nivea Men ~ 2 Phase ASL + Sensitive PSB.

    Greetings,

    The LPL Fougere soap which is absolutely amazing, i only used a small amount but had enough for the full shave without going back to the sample tub to add more, the post shave feel is fantastic, as was the slickness,protection & fragrance, not 'full on' in your face, but a nice lingering scent...Both the OSP & LPL Fougere are on my soap wish list now, but not for a long while yet though.
    I've far too many soaps & creams to contend with & to appreciate before purchasing anymore.
    I'm running out of compliments for the Ever-ready se razors, yet again this vintage lady performed with great smoothness resulting in another 3 pass + pick ups BBS shave with no errors to report.
    Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Nivea Men ~ Sensitive PSB.

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

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

    Greetings,

    The Ever Ready SE razors are amazingly smooth & efficient, which i highly recommend every traditional wet shaver to shave with one if giving the opportunity to do so.
    The Ever Ready 1912 (US) was my first introduction to the wonderful world of vintage SE razors, kindly gifted to me by a member of TSR (UK) of which I'm eternally grateful.
    The Wickham Co. 1912 Irish Fern soap like the Classic 24 both are a joy to shave with, providing a wonderfully scented slick protective lather, and a great post shave feeling to the face.
    Another pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.
    Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Aloe Vera Gel.

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

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