    Man Cave Olivestone Facial Scrub
    Pears Glycerine Soap
    Clubman Shave Butter (Preshave)
    TOBS Royal Forest Shaving Cream
    Yaqi Heavy Metal Synthetic Brush
    Feather AC SS in Scotchwood with a Proline-P
    Giles Shaving Co Bowl
    Alum and Rinse
    Simple Facial Toner
    Palmer's Raw Shea Moisturiser
    Murray & Lanman Florida Water
    Aventus type PO

    Perhaps a little over the top with the Shave Prep.....but I had a day outside in the cold yesterday and my face was very dry this morning, and of course you should always try to pamper yourself at least once a week!
    The Royal Forest is my favourite TOBS cream to date. It is reported to have a scent similar to Creed Aventus. Now .....I have never tried Aventus but it is very slick and fruity and a pleasure to use.
    2 passes and a touch up for a perfect BBS finish and a great way to start a Sunday:)

    I used a Lord all plastic (except for the blade) shavette today. These are veddy light. Had a great shave with the Wilkerson Sword soap. There is a video on the Shaving With Fuzzy youtube channel.

    Parker srx, I started using a Dovo stainless steel before I bought the parker, I felt the Dovo was a bit lightweight as I prefer some weight in my hand, the parker defo gave me that...and a bit more, I am gonna stick with it for the 30 days then go back to the Dove, see if I can use a light razor... My efforts with the srx will stand me in good stead for the dovo I think, I already had a few nicks and a decent sized scrape from the dovo and that was because it was so light I was digging in, but with the help/advice I got on here I am now a bit more educated...I actually feel the srx to be heavy for my light grip now.
    I love the aesthetics of both but I want a Feather ss, I would like to master these first tho.

    I clean up with a £5 de razor that is ok, I literally just picked it up and started cleaning up no problem at all... I was a little surprised, but it really seemed like I had never left the DE razors, used one from around 16 to 25 then I fell into the cartridge trap...coz that is what it is..a trap to get you to pay high prices for 99% plastic items..I am glad I found this forum...but also glad I never found it 30 years ago...or I would probably need a huge outhouse to keep my kit in...I have seen some of the guys kit...it is quite unbelievable, well to most..
    I am a self confessed collector, mine was fishing gear, Tho I really did use most of it, it was modern high end stuff...not antique, but a lot was expensive for the branch of fishing I do/did.I dont get out like i used to...even in winter at -10 we would camp out for weekends etc.
    Now I am a fair weather fisherman
    My brush is a Proraso pro, I bought it because I wanted a longer brush with a good firm backbone...and that is what this brush, very happy with it so far...again..I intend to buy a badger hair but I still have a bit to learn on them...silvertip too soft ??... Best hair still too soft ?? i dono not tried or had a look yet, Im hoping I can get a firmer BH brush for under £30...or I will look at synthetice or horsehair...or msybe a mixed
