Shaving recipe for today.

Prep: Warm shower / Sanex Men ~ Sensitive Soap Free Shower Body & Face Gel.


Cold wet flannel to my face.

Pears ~ Transparent Soap Bar / Nuage Menthol Shaving Oil.

Brush : Omega 48.

Face Lather.

Frankensoap : (Grated) Arko Shave stick + Dettol Original Anti Bacterial Soap & Palmolive Classic Shave Stick.(Grated.)

Blade: Gillette ~ 'NOS 94' Super Silver Platinum. (4)

Razor: Edwin Jagger ~ DE89. (kelvin)


Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade lavender eucalyptus, +Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./ Arko ~ Comfort AS Cologne + ASB.


The Gillette 'NOS' 94 SSP/Edwin Jagger de89 paired together wonderfully resulting in 3 pass + pick ups DFS/near BBS shave with no errors to report.

The star of all my shaves this week has been the Gillette 'NOS 94' SSP blade which was a joy to use it's unbelievable a blade that was made 26 years ago can still perform with smooth sharp efficiency.

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

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Arko ~Comfort ASB.

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

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

Taking a family friend out to lunch, as she has spent much of lockdown in solitary confinement. Wanted a no frills guaranteed quality Shave and this quirky almost blade on a stick Razor always delivers. I was lucky enough to get hold of the Oren at a heavily discounted price, and Shavewise it is one of my best performing AC/SE Razors.

I did a swap to get hold of an original. as I reckon when I get a bit shaky using my heavier Razors, I can continue shaving with these lighters Razors which deliver quality Shaves every time. Todays Shave was very nice, as the sometimes derided Spitfire really lathers up well with the little Omega boar. What looks a scrubby little thing has amazingly soft tips when it has taken on lather, softer than some Synthetics I have used.
