    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 the planet 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 this 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,

    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:

    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 With Mint Extracts. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Lider Turkish Boar.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
    Lather : Arko ~ Cool Shaving Cream.
    Blade: Astra Superior Platinum. (D4)
    Razor: Muhle r89.

    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./Arko ~ Cool AS/Cologne + ASB.

    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    Last outing of the Astra SP which has performed wonderfully with each shave. The blade still feels as though it could carry on with a few more shaves. Very impressive considering i done my monthly head shave with it which is equivalent to two face shaves...The Muhle r89 has been a delight to re-introduce myself to this week. I have reminded myself why i consider it to be my favourite DE razor.
    Yet again The 'Arko cool trio' worked together wonderfully making my morning shave a pleasurable experience...I've mentioned before in many of my posts i'm a great fan of both Arko & Derby shaving products. I know that some people cringe at the thought of using them or may have an allergic reaction to these products or dries their skin or don't like the scent 'especially the Shave sticks'...As with any shaving products subjective opinions will always be found especially with shaving soaps and creams, and even more so with DE blades...Each to their choice as the saying goes.

    Another enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Arko ~ Cool ASB.

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

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