Not a very good shave today, the shaving gods were not looking on me favourably, Why i am not sure?
Everything was set up for an enjoyable Shave as i had a nice sharp razor at hand, a wonderful lather on the face,
I started my usual routine and everything was going OK, i completed the first pass on the RH side of my face & neck and then moved onto the top lip, i went to rinse the razor and noticed blood dripping into the water?, i didn't feel anything and could not spot where it was coming from, then a large drop landed on my shoulder, it came from my ear lobe? i can only think that when stretching my baggy face my lobe has moved into the blade, schoolboy error!
Anyway after a lot of pressure, cold water and the age old loo paper patch i managed to stop the flow.
I continued with the shave but my heart was not in it, the ear bled another twice and i had to stop it each time.
so an interrupted 2 pass shave giving me an SAS finish, and a 5-8mm slice down my lobe to boot.
I got quite a bit reaction to the splash, although everything is calm now.
Sitting writing this sporting another loo roll patch ( very fetching) and a bit disappointed with myself.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.
OK...first, there was one thing wrong here: you cut your ear.
Key lesson: Don't try to shave your ears:eek:
But, on the bright side, there were three things you got right: Proraso Green soap, Proraso green AS, and Proraso Green balm.
Key lesson: Proraso green rocks:cool:
It pains me to have to point out these shaving truths to someone I respect so greatly;):giggle:

Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint lavender eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./ Nivea Men ~ 2 Phase ASL.

Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

It's been a while since i last used the The Haslinger Sheep soap is a magnificent performer with only a slight clean pleasant fragrance 'to my nose'.

I personally find the vast majority of shaving soap scents disappear once i have rinsed my face with cold water.

The schafmilch sheep milk soap texture reminds me of MWF/ Kent shaving soap which all contain lanolin of which my mature skin type loves, what i instantly liked about it was it lathered without the addition of blooming creating a wonderful luxurious slick protective lather which doesn't dissipate on my face between each pass leaving a superb post shave feel.

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

Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

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

Stay safe, and enjoy you Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
