SOTD 31st July
Lather - P&B Sanskrit + Yaqi Sagrada Familia
Razor - Gillette Tech
Blade- Shark SS #3
Post - Mennen Skin Bracer + L'Oréal Hydra Sensitive Birch Sap
Really smooth shave today, very welcome too.
Great lather and the Tech went about it's 3 pass business with surprising (to me) efficiency and super, super smooth. The Gillette Super Speed is milder for me - perhaps its my technique? Great Post shave to set me up for night shift on work. The blade felt sharp and smooth and I do seem to get on with it, so I'm thinking this is a keeper.
Stay safe people and a great weekend to all.

I enjoyed that!
Using about a hazelnut size piece of the GFCC cream i whipped up a Lather in the Captain choice copper bowl with the Alpha Ti that could have kept a barber shop in shaves for an hour at least, it was jumping out of the bowl. The scent is very light but the lather punches well above its price range.
2 full passes with the Feather/Kai Pink combo, WTG & XTG trying some different angles/ hand holds to use with the Str8's, i am more confident with this little razor than a Str8 at the moment, resulting in a DFS finish.
The main change being i always go from ear to nose XTG, today i tried nose to ear as i was a bit wary using the Str8 going towards the nose, it seemed to work well so will try that on the next training shave. i am also more confident using my left hand with this razor.
The little ECO did a fantastic job picking up anything i missed on a buffing pass.
A nice post shave routine carrying on the Lime citrus scent, a little bit of a sting from the A/S splash which did not last long.
I am happy, smooth, feeling and smelling good.
Stay safe and Enjoy your day All.
