SOTD 20190210.



Vintage brush / Maggard synth.
Stirling "Wintergreen" shaving soap (sample).
Seygus "Zeppelin" V.2 (gap 0.9 mm).
Personna Lab Blue (8).
Alcolado Glacial.

Seygus Zeppelin - gap usage:
0.7 mm - 1
0.9 mm - 1

Used the Seygus with 0.7 mm gap yesterday, today the 0.9 mm gap:
The 0.7 mm gap felt better than the 0.5 mm - less efford for a little bit better result.
The 0.9 mm gap was just a bit too aggressive, and caused some small damage.
One or two days with a mild razor, then the 0.9 mm gap will have 1 more chance ...

That Seygus is a very beautiful Razor.

I haven't posted for a few days due to the on going Conjunctivitis which developed into an Opthamology Emergency due to my A&E missing a couple of corneal ulcers. I have been using fragrance and alcohol free products and razors which I could use blindfolded (which you could probably say....I was). The Creighton's cream is very slick and 3 passes gave me an excellent finish.
The Simple facial toner has been a good discovery. Full of lots of goodies like Lucky Tiger....but no fragrance and a fraction of the price!
Wishing you a speedy recovery Brian.

Blade: Personna Red (2)

Four days' growth was no obstacle to the Rockwell on plate 4. The first pass WTG left very little clean up. Swapped down to plate 2 for XTG and ATG leaving my first BBS in my 6 months of proper wet shaving.

Have a great evening.

Cheers

Sunday 10th February 2019 PM

Pre-shave:- Warm water rinse / Nivea Sensitive Face Wash / Proraso Green pre shave cream
Brush:- Executive Shaving Company Medium Jock Synthetic
Soap/Cream:- Proraso Green croap
Razor/Blade:- RazoRock Hawk V2 / Schick Proline (4)
Post-shave:- Thayers Cucumber / Floid Vigoroso aftershave / Proraso Green Post Shave balm



A cool and chilling menthol theme tonight.

As I did last night, everything was at a slow and methodical pace. The results speak for themselves.....another BBS finish and an incident free 3 pass shave.

My face is currently tingling with that fresh menthol feel.

With zero pressure and taking things at a slow pace I feel my skin can possibly manage daily shaving when using the Hawk. I’ll see how things are tomorrow night and I may try 3 days with daily shaving. Fingers crossed!

Have a great night folks and here’s to the week ahead!
