I usually don't really like menthol, but the I Coloniali has very nice light cooling effect, which complements well its semi-fruity, smoky-incense scent. The blade continues to be sharp and smooth.

Cream - Cyril R Salter French VetIver
Brush - YaqI Chianti 24mm Synthetic
Razor - YaqI Katana
Blade - Derby Premium half blade (2)
Post - L'oreal Birch Sap Balm

Regrowth since Tuesday's shave with the Katana was a bit less than with my regularly used DE's. It really does shave quite a bit closer.
I don't think I'll push the blade to a third shave. I'll use a half Gillette Platinum in this razor next.

Last use of the bolzano s.i. blade which has performed superbly with each outing. These blades are smooth sharp & very forgiving. Every razor i've paired them up with has been a excellent match...The longevity of them is astoundingly good i know i could quite easily get another two shaves from this blade but i will retire it due to me having a boat load of other blades to contend with.

I have carried on with the hefty Parker 89r to finish my shaving week off, another razor i haven't added to my razor rotation for a while. throughout the week my humble parker have provided me with socially acceptable error free shaves.
Today was no exception.

This morning myself and other family members are going to pay our respects to my aunt Joan (86 years of age) who finally past away last week, i say 'finally' because she lived in a care home in a state of extreme dementia for four years which was horrible for her even though she wasn't aware of it, 'a blessing in disguise for her i suppose' and equal for her children family, friends and dedicated supportive care home staff.

Alzheimer's disease/Dementia is the most undignified disease for anybody..'I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy'...Anyway at last she is at rest, away from this crazy covid pandemic madness world we are living in at the moment.

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

Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of L'OREAL~ Soothing Birch Sap Post Shave Balm.

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

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

Take care everyone. Yours. B
I am so sorry to hear of your loss and can share your thoughts as to Alzeihmers/Dementia as I lost my mother to Alzeihmers some years back. The prior 8 years were as painful as the loss. My thoughts are with you

Excellent soap! Appreciate it more & more. Nice unique scent and great performance. Creamy and slick.
Shave with razor paired with blade was good. Smooth and comfortable for 3passes but not so efficient. Unexpected creeper. Between bbs to dfs. Post & aftershaves always good.
