    Fri 12th Jan
    Stirling Syn. 26mm
    Schick Canadian E2
    Schick Proline ( 3 )
    Alum Rub / Rinse off
    Jaguar Prestige A/S lotion

    This is my 3rd Shave with this E2,which provides a very smooth Shave unlike other E2s which tend to be very aggressive.
    This was probably my most comfortable Shave this Week, and the best being so close all round.This E2 could well prove to be my best Injector that uses a single blade.Has definitely proved to be my Best Buy of 2017.
  3. Friday 12th January

    Warm shower
    face prep: Executive shaving pre shave oil
    Razor: Muhle R41
    Blade: Personna Platinum
    Brush: Simpsons Commodore x3 face lather
    Shave soap: TOBS Aloe vera cream
    Warm rinse, then Cold rinse with alum
    Post shave: Witch hazel Then myrsol emulsion
    Colonge: Castle forbes 1445

    I bought the Muhle R41 when I started de shaving, only used it once about a year ago, it tore my face to pieces. Gave up on it, my technique was not good. Today one year on I thought that I would give it another try. I really took my time on first pass WTG, not the smoothest of pass, continued with second pass WTG and then final pass XTG, my final pass is usually ATG but not with the R41 (coward :eek:). After post shave Alum rinse there was a bit of stinging, I continued with whitch hazel then Myrsol emulsion my skin felt great good close shave. I think I will experiment with other blades and try to get a more comfortable shave.

    Have a nice day. :) B.

    Pre: Warm water face wash
    Brush: Shavemac TSR 2015
    Cream: Traditional Shaving Leodis
    Razor: Gillette SR Old Type
    Blade: Astra SP
    Post: Warm then cold water rinse, 4711 AS

    After yesterday's disappointment I thought I'd renew my faith in DEs, so I fetched the ever reliable OT.
    The cream was gifted to me by @Benz3ne, much appreciated Ben :) and I was very impressed indeed, a quick sniff, ah citrus 4711 will suit it nicely.
    Citrus? It's a whole bloody orchard, with apple dominant.
    Slickness isn't bad, cushion very good and the Old Type danced around my face like a spring chicken, not bad considering that it'll become a Centenarian at some point this year.
    A great end to the week indeed.

    Pre Shave: Hot Shower + Body Shop Maca Root face wash and Proraso White
    Razor: Gillette Super Adjustable T2 (1973) on #7
    Blade: Lord Cool (#3)
    Brush: Maseto 24mm Extra Density 2 Band Finest
    Soap: Haslinger Seaweed
    Post: Alum Block, Cold water and Humphreys Witch Hazel
    AS: Nivea Soothing Balm

    Second outing for my new Maseto extra density brush and the tips are feeling like those on the 30mm fan shape Maseto, I not sure what is actually meant by gel tips but that is how I would describe the feel of the tips when wet.

    Bluebeards Revenge aftershave balm

    The products work well. I had some issues with the balm I originally bought as it went to water. Contacted them and they swapped it even though I bought it from Tesco. Turns out the product was a few years old so no idea how long Tesco had it. The new version is great, only issue is it takes a little while to fully dry and stays a little tacky whilst it dries.

    The cream is good. Although I would say it is a very soft soap and not a cream like the packaging says.

    Hi Elias,

    I hope you have better weather than in the UK !
    I must admit to being a little afraid of the shavette, as the slightest sideways movement will t in bloodshed.
    This was my best effort with it so far and it's given me a bit more confidence .

    So that’s your travel shave setup? V nice!

    Cheers @Reevers. I mix it up a bit. The AS-D2 is very forgiving, and a stick works well on the road for face lathering. The real ace is Myrsol Emulsion in a rollerball - genius from our Spanish friends!
