Timeless 0.68 SB Scalloped
Voskhod (2)
Floid Mentolado Vigoroso ASL
PenhallIgons Endymion Cologne

It's nice to be home and have a good soak in the tub prior to shaving - showering in a caravan is ok for a week, but I couldn't do it long term.

Shave went as well as expected - Noble Otter Monarch soap has the most divine scent and the lather is thick and creamy. Post shave feel is good too.
The Timeless/Voskhod combo was smooth and dealt with two days growth with ease, with the lightest of touches.
Finishing with Floid Mentolado Vigoroso and PenhallIgons Endymion Cologne.

Another wonderfully relaxing Uberlather/frankensoap sunday shave.

Second outing with the valobra 'soft/croap-like' menthol soap sample which is very like proraso green with a more menthol hit, mix together with the Williams wonderfully it created a wonderful slick protective lather for the shave, leaving another equally superb post shave feel.

I've been curious about the Valobra shave stick, for a while,another soap i've added to my ' wish list', but not for a while as i have enough soaps & shaving creams to contend with, before i can add & appreciate any other new additions to my humble shaving cream & soap collection.

A comfortable 3 pass + pick ups silky smooth shave with no errors to report.

Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of The Real Shaving Co.~ Post Shave Soothing Balm.

My face is feeling smooth & smelling devine.

Enjoy your Sunday Ladies & Gentlemen.

Quick and comfortable smooth (BBS) in 3 rounds, and a DFS to boot. What more can a man ask for, and that combined with the great smell of the SDM, where the AS Balm has some bitter notes in te background that are not there in the soap, but those less friendly notes fade fast, and the remaining result is bloody nice indeed ;-)
Ready for our family visit, have a nice Sunday!

A nice Sunday morning shave with a great lather from the Erasmic following the tips of @Palmolive fox - Thank you. The lather lasted throughout the shave and gave a good cushion, it has a scent i can get away with although a little bit harsh.
3 passes with the Rocnel without issue, the Blade is now done, I may have been able to push another shave from it but why chance it. 4 shaves from a half blade is really good in my book.
A nice post shave routine with the Bart's Balm and Lotion finishing off with the DR Harris Bay Rum aftershave.
I have a BBS, soft, comfortable Face & i am smelling really good.
Off down to the beach with the Mutts then off to visit the Mothership.
Have a great Sunday All.
