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.

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 ). 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.

BRUSH - SOC Boar
RAZOR - Thiers Issard, Damascus steel, 6/8, hollow ground, natural horn scales

Lovely shave from this straight.
The face feel is different than any other steel straight.
Haslinger always does the job. Great performance!

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.

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!
