Finally have the famous Polsilver Super Iridium in hand & 1st use!
Soap
Catie's Bubbles Le Piment De La Vie
Brush Yaqi 26mm Lucky Dice Tuxedo
Razor RR Game Changer.84 SB
Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic Acid
Aqua Velva Ice Cool
Load from soap puck and face lather. Initially dry but add water slowly and work the brush on face. Good brush indeed with splay and backbone. Handle is very comfortable. Really nice lather result...thick, creamy and ok slickness.
Shave with razor and this famous blade felt comfortable, felt smooth but sharp. No harshness at all. Tatra & Tiger felt a tad smoother. Polsilver felt abit more efficient. 3+1 multiple passes with no weepers nor irritation. Near to BBS result. Icy water and Thayers leave a fresh tingly cool face and top-off by Hyaluronic with AV Ice Cool. 9.7/10!
Will try the blade with another tomorrow...

SOTD 18th June 2020

Razor - Karve #C
Blade - Souplex
Soap - Fitjar Fjelheim hard soap
Brush - Shavemac 30mm two band silvertip
Post - Thayers astringent
Frag - Guerlain Vetiver

My first use of this soap and I'm impressed, it gave me a slick and glossy lather that had the most wonderful pine and juniper scent, a good performing soap.
The Karve fitted with the C plate and a Souplex blade was a great combo, a super smooth shave that left my skin as smooth as smooth and be!
A spray or two of Vetiver from Guerlain was the perfect finish to the perfect shave.

Until the next time, let's be careful out there :)

Managed to use this tub of cream up today. I'll start something new tomorrow. Nice shave with two and a third / touch up pass. These personna blades don't feel as smooth as I remember them.

The last shave of this rotation with the B2 and what a shave it was. I started with a 3 pass cold-water shave.
The CR Salter is working a treat and i am going to push myself to keep using it, i have been overloading either the brush or the bowl just to make a dint in it. I am up to 45 shaves so far, it is the oldest (10 ish?) shaving product i have as i got it to use when i went through my Str8 faze.
The shave itself was as smooth as silk, i seem to have the angle dialed in and i had no issues whatsoever, a quick splash then straight in the shower. After a dry off, a splash of Witch Hazel and then carried on with my Normal post shave routine.
I am truly smooth, comfortable and feeling really good.
Now then " what am i going to do to spruce this razor up?"
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.

Update:-
a light clean with some Autosol.
