    Face Lather.
    Frankensoap : (Grated) Arko Shave stick + Dettol Original Anti Bacterial Soap & Palmolive Classic Shave Stick.

    Greetings,

    A near Turkish themed Thursday shave..

    It's been a while since i last used the Lord L125 razor, a lightweight middle aggression razor which was kindly passed on to me each time i normally use my Schmidt R10 Handle to give the razor more heft, however with either handle the performance and shaving results from this razor have been satisfactory. Paired together with the Derby Premium blade on it's 4th & last outing made a wonderful smooth duo.
    A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Aloe Vera Gel.

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

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

    Alpha Outlaw and Arko Shave Stick with Clubman Special Reserve.

    Prep: Hot Shower
    Soap: Arko Shave Stick
    Razor: Alpha Outlaw
    Blade: Dorco ST-301 (5)
    Brush: Zenith S series
    AS/EdC: Clubman Special Reserve

    Just a nice Saturday shave. Smell like a Grizzled VET/Contractor, again, for the last time in the Middle East! I killed the bottle. The Cremo Stick is nice, but Arko is better. Had to dig through a box before I mailed it home to find an Arko Stick, and put the Cremo Stick in the box.
