    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    The Katana/Voskhod T.C. 'Snapped in 1/2' duo is the best match I've had to date each shave throughout the week has been smooth and comfortable...I intend to carry on with the Voskhod T.C. blade next week to finish my run of Russian DE blades...I have some Chinese Gillette London Bridge & Super Blue blades that I've had for a while but have yet to try out.

    My humble shave sticks, provided me with some excellent lathers throughout the week. The Boots stick has a nice fresh fragrance which build a slick protective lather in a short space of time leaving a wonderful post shave feel.

    A Enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close pleasurable shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Boots Freshwood ASB.

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

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

    Shaving recipe for today.

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

    Pre:
    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears Transparent Bar Soap. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Anbbas 24mm Synthetic.
    Face Lather.
    Lather: Eco Warrior Bergamot & Lime Shaving Bar.
    Blade : Voskhod. (D1)
    Razor : Merkur 39c.

    Post:
    Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.+3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. /La Toja ASL./Nivea Men Sensitive Cooling PSB.

    Greetings,

    A new shave set up to start the weekend...I haven't gave much attention to my much loved Merkur slants especially the 39c so i'll be using it with all my shaves throughout the week ,pairing it up with another Voskhod blade after the superb shaves i had in my previous weeks shaves.

    The Eco Warrior soap bar provided a wonderful slick lather rubbing it directly into my stubble like a shave stick, then started to build up a lather with my damp brush adding more water to the tips of the brush continued building the lather until i got it to the consistency i like...Another superb match with Merkur 39c./Voskhod duo.

    I find the Voskhod doesn't feel aggressive when shaving with them, but give an efficient performance feeling very smooth throughout the shave.

    A enjoyable close comfortable near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Nivea Men Sensitive Cooling PSB.

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

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

    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    Last outing of the Voskhod TC blade which has performed wonderfully throughout the week.... Another smooth efficient combo with the Merkur 39c slant mowing through my stubble with effortless ease making my early morning shave a pleasurable experience...Each and every blade that i have used over the past month or so have been wonderful if i where to choose a favourite it would be the Gillette Nacet. Near on equally par it would be the GSB, and the Yellow 7 o'clock Sharpedge....I would also like to mention that i have other Russian made blades that i like that give good satisfactory shaves...A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop splash of Baylis & Harding Amber & Sandalwood ASB.

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

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

    Greetings,

    A new shave set up to start the weekend...Maiden shave using the Chinese made Gillette London Bridge which i've had for while, but have only got round to trying them out....After my week with the Merkur 39c i will be using the Parker 55SL with all my shaves to put the Chinese Gillette London Bridge blade through its performance paces.

    The verdict? Amazingly good! one of the smoothest blades I've used paired together with the Parker 55SL... These blades feel comfortable sharp & smooth...I'm only one shave in granted, but i feel as though these are going to become regular favourite in my blade rotation.

    A very impressive maiden shave with the Chinese Gillette London Bridge.

    A enjoyable close comfortable near BBS shave with no errors to report....Finishing to the shave off with a a few generous squirts of Blue Stratos EdT to the pulse points.

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

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