A new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend...Maiden shave with the Eco Warrior Bergamot & Lime Shaving Bar.

I used the soap like a shave stick rubbing it directly into my stubble then started to build up a lather with my wet brush adding more water to the tips of the brush continued building the lather until i got it to the consistency i like, adding more water to the tips of brush in-between each pass.
It's a thirsty soap and can take a good amount of water when building up a lather without fear of it drying out.

The soap has a wonderful scent, a good texture it's protective, slick and most importantly the lather didn't dissipate or dry out on my face in between each pass, leaving an impressive post shave feel to my face. An excellent Shaving soap,of which i look forward to use again.

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

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Aloe Vera Gel.

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

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Finally able to fully bring out the best with the brush...what a pleasure...and the resulting lather from the soap was thickly creamy and slick...more than what I need....luxurious!!
Shave with the razor paired with this blade was a revelation......smooth, sharp and very comfortable for 3+1passes with bbs result. Truly a gem! But some weepers...hmmm. Let's see how for the next few shaves...
Icy water postshave followed by Thayers was great & aftershave closed a super session.

I Had a Late Evening Shave with My J.A Henckels Friodur Solingen 6/8th..Its a Totally Different Stainless Steel to the Earlier Generation Friodur Models..But Delivers the Goods as One Would Expect from a Henckels SR..Its Killer Sharp & Shaves More Like a 1/4 Hollow than a Full Hollow Ground Blade..
