    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    Later this morning i have to go for my yearly works medical before i return to work on the 6th April.
    Yesterday afternoon i had my first AstraZeneca Jab, which was the most painless injection i have had to date. Like most people on planet earth, i don't like needles or injections but this one didn't affect me at all...I had no threatening adverse effects after having the vaccine apart from feeling a little bit shivery and tired, but today i feel fine apart from my arm feeling slightly stiff which i was told "is the norm", and will be ok after a few days...

    Back to the shave...Last outing of the Lord platinum blade has been consistent throughout the week...Another good blade from the Lord camp that i will add more frequently to my blade rotation...The Gillette Tech is a remarkable in-expensive razor that i will always have in my shaving den.

    Another enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable acceptable shave with no errors to report...A great shave to finish my shaving week of in style...Finishing the shave off with a generous splash of Gummy ~ Turkish Lavender Cologne.

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

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

    Greetings,

    (Face & Head Shave.) (Adjustable DE Razor week.)

    A new shave set up to start the weekend...Maiden face & head shave with the Vitos Vegetale Soap...The verdict?..... A very nice shaving soap, which lathers up superbly provides a slick protective thick lather with a wonderful vibrant marzipan /sweet almond scent with a small hint of coconut oil which lasts throughout the shave and beyond leaving a superb post shave feel...A wonderful addition to my humble shaving soap collection which i look forward to using in future shaves.

    Finishing the Lord blade month off using the Shark Super Stainless blade....I know from pass experience with the Shark SS i get 2-3 max acceptable shaves after that i bin them. They have a good balance of smoothness/sharpness which is a great combo especially for head shaving...As always YMMV, opinions are very subjective.

    The Parker Variant razor excelled the shave eliminating my face & head stubble effortlessly... It's always a pleasure to shave with this amazingly smooth solidly well built razor, today was no exception...The non-aggressive yet assertive enough Shark SS paired together wonderfully making a smooth efficient duo.

    A enjoyable close comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off a with a small dollop of L'0REAL ~ Barber Club Reinforcing ASB..

    My face & precious swede are feeling smooth & smelling divine.;)

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

    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    "white rabbit white rabbit white rabbit!"

    Last outing of the Shark Super Stainless blade to finish my shaving week & month off using various Lord DE blades...

    The Silver Star Super Stainless & Lord Platinum Class are my favourite blades from the lord camp however, the Asco & Shark Super stainless are the smoothest out of them which is my preference in a blade over sharpness. The longevity of the Silver Star Super Stainless & Lord Platinum Class, which i am convinced are the same blade" in different covers? have a nice balance of efficiency & smoothness....Long story short, each of the blades from the Lord camp have gave acceptable shaving results with no intermittent quality problems throughout the month.

    The Weishi 2.0 Adjustable/Shark Super Stainless blade duo was a real smooth efficient combo...The Weishi Adjustable performance on the higher settings work wonderfully.

    Another enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...A great shave to finish my shaving week...Finishing the shave off in style with a generous splash of Gummy ~ Traditional Turkish Tobacco Cologne.

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

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