SOTD: Saturday November 2nd 2019 to Friday November 8th 2019

View attachment 48863

Sotd - this evening - Thursday the seventh of November.

Razor - ER Streamline
blade - vintage ER (lost count)
brush - Chubby 1 - best
soap - Nivea cream - tube - Spanish
post - witch hazel
a/s - Nivea - 2 in 1
balm - none needed - on my face - Nivea cool gel hidrante on my scalp.

Result - none more shaven.

I work outdoors - mostly - so what would be a rational response - in Scotland - to the change in the seasons? A proper east wind today - bitter - biting - let's shave my head and face - what was I thinking? - hence the picture above. I'm more comfortable using a cartridge razor for a head shave - these were fine. BBS upper and lower - job done. Software - wise - all Nivea - you don't have to spend a fortune to get a good result. It is all about knowing what you are doing. I do value a good 'economy' shave. Enjoy yours - I.
Nothing wrong with those for the dome, Iain. I tried a Schick Injector on mine. But only once...

A very nice Friday shave.
3 passes without issue WTG, XTG & ATG, the new bowl working a treat and it fits in my big mit perfectly.
The blade, although still working well has been banked after 5 shaves, i have that many now its not worth trying to push them. I do like these blades though. The GC-OC working really well leaving me clean and comfortable
A very nice post shave and i used a splash of Tabac Aftershave as an astringent, balmed up with Tabac Original and finished with Tabac EDC.
Cue-ball smooth with a soft and supple face feel.
Have a great afternoon All.
