A very first use for me. Blown away by it. I still haven't thawed out :ROFLMAO: :eek:
I find Proraso Menthol & Eucalyptus AS splash works well with it, followed after about 15-20 minutes by Proraso Menthol & Eucalyptus post-shave balm. (I tend to use both, first for the antiseptic/astringent AS and then for the moisturising/soothing balm ...maybe just me that likes that approach so don't blame me if your face falls off! (Oh, and Proraso green pre-shave is a nice way to chill it a little more at the start :rolleyes:) (y)

All sounds good to me. Splashing cold water on my face after the soap was unreal. I'm definitely a menthol guy so must add those to the never ending list of shaving items I need..not want ;)

Greetings



The 4th use of Lancet SP blade before i retire it.However, i feel as though this blade could carry on giving me a few more comfortable shaves. Another superb in-expensive Indian made DE blade.


I've learned a valid lesson from my humble self and that is i should always go with my 'gut-feeling/judgement',and never be condescending towards a product by it's low price tag, or take notice of other peoples reviews until you've made your own.... You can't make a true judgement on DE blades or any shaving related product regardless of the price tag with just one or two shaves, you've got to give them a good run to see if it is suited to your skin type, test it's longevity & smoothness, and try it in different razors before you can make a true opinion.


Over the past three weeks all of the blades i've re-aquainted & new blades i have tried in various razors have been absolutely fantastic all have performed admirably with each shave the dorco blades i've shaved with haven't been the sharpest blades that i have used over the last few weeks, but both the Prime platinum & ST300 have gave me some of the consistantly comfortable smooth shaves i've had since i started DE shaving especially the Prime Platinum.
The Lancet SP another have really surprised me,which are now another good inexpensive DE blade that perform superbly,that have gave me non-fuss smooth comfortable shaves...What more can i ask for.

As always, opinions reviews, are always personal thing and are very subjective to the reader..Enough said.

Next week i be trying out another two more blades i've had since the start of the year but have yet to try starting with the Gillette 'NOS' Super Silver & Tiger Platinum.

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

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Aloe Vera Gel.

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

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

Tabac Thursday 23 SOTD
Soap Tabac
Bowl Turkish Copper
Brush Yaqi 26mm Moka Express
Razor Yaqi Knight Helmet
Blade Tatra Platinum 4th
Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Clubman Whisky Wood
Great stuff from Tabac...dense, creamy and slick. Nice not overly strong scent. Brush and bowl combined to whip-up a nice lather. So pleasurable to paint it on.
Shave with this aggressive razor paired with blade was quite good. Getting comfortable with the use of the razor and better with the ideal angle on various part of the shaving surface. 3+1 multiple passes with no issues of weepers nor irritation means all good with this razor. Between bbs to dfs result. Numbing icy water rinse followed by cooling Thayers then soothed by Hyaluronic and finish off with Whisky Wood which lasted a good half-day. Rating 9.5/10!
