Maseto 26mm Finest - Meißner Himalayan Heights - Fatip OC Slant/Super Shave X - Pitralon Classic

I have been trying the new Super Shave X blade. Usually I bin a blade after a maximum of 3 shaves but today this was #4. and it was still very smooth with no tugging. I could probably get at least another one......but I am happy enough with what I have had.

3 passes for a super shave which will see me well through the night!

First use of the Wizamet blade, a recent acquisition from @Blademonkey, thank you Paul, which performed very similarly to my favourite Łódź Polsilver. I’m going to be testing these for a while in all my razors. Immediate impression is that they are very smooth and very comfortable, resulting in a faultless, irritation free shave.

Balm - Nivea Cooling Kick
AS - Indian Old Spice

I generally try to shave every day, the ritual of a wet shave is beneficial for my state of mind, but I'd had a few rough days and it's my first shave since Monday, but feels like it was a lot more than that. I'm not sure the razor & blade combination was a good one for 3 days of growth, it felt like it was struggling a bit but managed to get reasonable results in 2.5 passes. Decided to treat myself to using the Indian Old Spice splash, not a treat for cost but more as it's not a scent I can manage enthusiasm for on a regular basis, in occasional uses it's fine though.

Anyway gents, have a good day.
