SOTD : Saturday 5th October - Friday 11th October 2019.

Ontario, Canada
Loved the Gillette Red Tip on Monday and decided I would carry on with the Super Speed Trio! So today I reached for the 1956 Flare Tip Super Speed. Loaded up with a Voskhod and to work I went.

RazoRock Gold was the soap of the day with the matching AS. Lovely spice, citrus and amber all mixed in there. Love RazoRock soaps and AS because I haven’t had a bad one yet and the performance per dollar is excellent.

Lovely two pass shave and good to go for work. Nice and smooth the Flare Tip.

Hump Day...soon the weekend will be upon us. Take care and safe travels.

Shaving recipe for today.

warm wet flannel to my face.

Pears ~ Transparent Soap.

Brush: Turkish Unbranded Boar.

Face Lather.

Soap: Arko Shave Stick.

Blade: Personna ~ Gem PTFE.(4)

Razor: Ever Ready 1914. (US)


Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade menthol crystals +Eucalyptus peppermint,+ Tea Tree Oil Witch Hazel Mixture./ Arko ~ Comfort Cologne+ Aftershave Balm.


Carrying on with the Ever Ready 1914 (US) which along with the E.R.1924, i find the most efficient out of all my vintage ER SE razors, mowing through my stubble with ease, making my morning shave a pleasuarable experience.

Second outing of the unbranded turkish boar brush, after a 5 minute soak in warm water it built up a wonderful lather on my face, adding water to the tips of the brush until i got the consistancy of which i like. The arko shave stick, never fails to give a superb lather, with a equal post shave feel.

A wonderfully smooth 3 pass + pick ups near bbs shave with no errors to report.

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

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Nivea Men ~ Sensitive Cooling Post Shave Balm.

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

Enjoy your day, ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
