Schick Super Chromium (6)
Floris Santal aftershave

I thought about adding a little rose absolute/hydrosol mixture to the lather, but the Santal cream already has a sweet sandalwood scent that I love. The blade must be starting to ge a bit dull because it felt slightly rough in the lightweight razor.

Super lather from the soap...what a pleasure...!!
Shave with razor paired with blade was not so good. The blade is tuggy...not sharp nor smooth. Managed to complete 3pass with a couple of weepers and dfs result. Luckily post & aftershave was good. Rating 8.5/10

Greetings,

A no-frills shave set up to finish my shaving week off.

My shaving set up this morning was absolutely brilliant!....The vast majority of my shave set ups are very in-expensive. It just goes to show that you don't need expensive shaving items to get a socially acceptable shave. It's all down to learning your technique & gaining shaving confidence.

The WS Premium TTO/ Mers ~ SuperShave X Platinum blade duo performed wonderfully mowing through my stubble with ease.

Another pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Wilko ~ Men's Moisturiser.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Blade: Polsilver Wizamet Brown (1)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel; Proraso Green Aftershave Splash

Classic shaving products must earn that lable - Proraso Green is a prime example.
Consistent great performance and reasonable pricing. The lather for this shave was terrific, easily allowing for a very comfortable three pass shave with a BBS result.
