A new shave set up to start the weekend...After a the long run with the 55SL i'm going to give some of my other Parker collection of DE razors a run out...Maiden shave with the Lancet SP blade, which i've had for a while, and finally got round to giving them a try.

Paired together with the Parker Variant made a smooth efficient duo. The Lancet SP i find very similar to the Super-max Zorrik SP almost identical infact.

Another great blade that i've introduced myself to from my diverse collection of DE blades.

A enjoyable 3 pass +pick ups BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Morrisons ~ Intensive Moisture Lotion.

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

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

2nd Stirling Soap. Very nice elegant scent. Absolutely love the scent! Wish could get the aftershave! Scent stay throughout the shave...just nice. Lather was creamy and slick enough. Glad to have chosen 2 good Stirling soaps!
Shave with razor paired with this blade is very good. Sharp but very smooth and comfortable. Did not feel blade in the razor like. Enjoyed the 3+1 multiple passes. Found a technique so able to satisfactory go atg under jawline from east to west & west to east! As a result, today is absolutely BBS! A creeper but no irritation. Icy water rinse followed by Thayers then Hyaluronic and GentsGin makes a great shave session! 9.8/10 rating

First shave with Brian's (@BrianH) soap.
It's in amongst the best of them. The scent has a natural aroma that's not overpowering and has the slickness to help the blade glide with ease.
Post Shave is a thumbs up too (y)
The soap along with the Vector, a beezer of a shave was achieved.

Enjoy your weekend gents​
