Another training shave today,
A face lather straight from the Sample tub with the little Simpson Commodore, this little brush seems to pick up and hold the soap easily, I really like the Leodis floral scent, it is the soap that moved me to try more of @BrianH 's Signature soaps and also other manufacturers floral descriptions.
I had a lovely slick covering in no time at all.
1st pass WTG using the Vintage PLS Str8, using both hands completing the full pass, still a bit awkward over the chin to neck area & LH side but i managed OK, after a rinse off and check i was pretty smooth.
I Lathered up again - easily enough for 3 passes in this little fella and used the Valet VB3 fitted with a Feather FHS-10, this would be its 4th outing, i completed a XTG/ATG mix, buffing the stubborn areas as i went. This blade is done now.
A final rinse and check left me with a DFS+ result which i am happy with, i have decided not to chase BBS while going through these training shaves, they are to try to get my muscle memory clicking into place with the Straight razor.
A nice post shave routine leaving me feeling quite chuffed with myself, smelling good and setting me up for the day ahead.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.
