    A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups CC shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Wilko ~ Lemon & Black Pepper Body Butter.

    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower / Cussons Imperial Leather ~ Arctic Ocean & Icelandic Moss Shower Gel.

    Pre:
    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Yardley ~ English Lavender Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush : Unbranded Turkish Boar.
    Face Lather.
    Soap : Arko Shave Stick.
    Blade: Gillette Winner. (2)
    Razor: Parker ~ 55SL Semi-Slant.

    Post:
    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade (~Winter mix~) peppermint Lavender, + eucalyptus, Tea Tree Oil Witch Hazel Mixture./ Arko ~ Comfort ASL/ Cologne + ASB.

    Greetings,
    Early morning shave.
    Last shift of 2020 at the mill then i'm furloughed until the 11th January 2021 after a meeting yesterday morning with our new inept text book theory micro-management team. Not the best of circumstances but i don't scorn it because i still have a job and a income coming in to start 2021, which lots of unfortunate people no longer have. How long my job will last next year remains to be seen.'I'll cross that bridge when i come to it'...This covid 19 madness has taught us all to take nothing for granted anymore as the vast majority of people did, 'including myself' before it spread it's epidemic upon us...Enough said.

    It's a very substantial much needed break to be honest, which i will use to recharge my body & mind and catch up on a few DIY projects i need to do for myself & family.
    I get great enjoyment shaving with all of my slant razors, but this year the Parker 55SL has become my favourite...Each blade i have paired it together with has been comfortable and acceptable to date. The Gillette winner yet again is no exception.
    The humble 'Turkish Delight' Arko shave stick never fails to provide a slick protective lather in a short space of time, love it or hate it....The performance from this humble inexpensive shave stick is amazingly good...I consider myself fortunate that it doesn't dry out my skin when i use it.

    A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable/near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Arko Comfort ASB.

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

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

    I figure this thread would be the best place to ask about Turkish cologne.
    I have been looking to get a bottle of either Duru or Pereja. I figure they will smell like M&L Florida Water. Any thoughts on either brand?

    I have Duru, which I use to help refresh myself the summer months here. Smells of strong lemons. The other, I couldn't tell you.
