I’ve been giving my face a 3 good days rest from my last mid bloodbath shave, using my Feather AC-SS since I haven’t been using for nearly 3 an half years... SHIT!
Hopefully I’ll get back into the ballgame again on Friday using my Feather AC-SS.
Wed 16 SOTD using a new found blade... Soap The Goodfellas Smile Italian Orange Brush Yaqi 24mm Sagrada Familia Razor Game Changer.84 SB Blade Starke Premium (German) 1st Use Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Aqua Velva Musk
The soap is truly remarkable. 20sec direct load and face lathering with the excellent brush. Nice nice scent, good creamy lather with excellent slickeness too...
Shave with razor paired with this new found blade was actually very nice. Initial stroke was smooth...can feel it is sharpish...
generally smooth and comfortable. The best test of a good blade is during atg, at 2 areas...just under the jawline and upper lips. Shave at both area was crisp and smooth. After a 3+1 pass...result was good. Between BBS to DFS. Icy water rinse followed by Thayers then Hyaluronic and AV Musk
Somehow there's 2 weepers...dang! Still a very good shave. Rating 9/10
