Shaving recipe for today.

warm wet flannel to my face.
Wilkinsons Fruits ~ Coconut & Vanilla Body Butter.
Brush: Semogue 830 .
Soap : Boots Original Shave Stick.

Razor: Parker 92R.
Warm wet flannel/ cold wet flannel to rinse my face.
Alum Block./Cold Water Face Rinse/Boots essentials Moisturising Lotion.
Proraso~ Sandalwood & Shea Oil Aftershave.
Another early start for me this morning...I only have to the 15th December then i'm away from work until the new year. Yeah!!!
The Parker 92R / Voskhod T.C. Blade combo was a wonderful match smooth & efficient, resulting in a 3 pass + pick up Silky smooth shave with no errors to report.
The boots Original shave stick was a joy to use, it's only my third use, but it's already become a favourite in my shaving den, i'll have to check out the boots soap bowl ,'If they still make them in the UK?' to see if it's performance is on equal par to the excellent shave stick.
Finishing the shave of is style with a generous splash of Proraso Sandalwood Aftershave & Shea Oil ..superb stuff for the approaching winter weather elements.
My face is feeling hydrated, super smooth & smelling devine.
Enjoy your day, ladies & gentlemen.

One growth and warm shave
Preparation – Showered then face washed with Clique Liquid facial soap (mild)
Razor: Gillette Thin Adjustable (Setting 6 and 4)
Blade: Personna Blue (1st)
Brush: RazoRock 400 (face lather)
Post Shave: Hot then cold water rinse, Nivea Sensitive Cooling followed by Michael Kors EDT AS.
Today’s shave – 3 passes (setting 6 for WTG and XTG and setting 4 for XTG) and no issues, but found the Personna blue, compared to the Silver Star extremely mild.
Gillette Rocket HD
Gillette Platinum (1)
Phoenix and Beau Solaris
Thayers Rose, BBA Post Shave Balm & Next Marble
My first use of a Gillette Platinum, what a wickedly sharp blade to me that is the sharpest Gillette blade I have tried, sharper than a Silver Blue. Not uncomfortable but maybe a bit too sharp for me, curious to see if it mellows in the next shave. We have the bottom of the tub starting to peek through, who knew these things have bottoms! Probably still a good dozen or two uses left until it's finished. This soap certainly lingers.
