Vintage Month

Brush - Yaqi Sagrada Tuxedo
Soap - Proraso Super Formula Green Shaving Cream
Razor - Fat Handle Tech
Blade - Lord Platinum (1)
Post - Benjamins Bay Rum

Yesterday's I used the new Super Formula White Shaving Cream, and didn't have the best shave as it seemed to react unfavourably with my skin, but had no such problem with using the new SF Green cream today. I've read some very favourable reports of it and if I'm honest it seemed very similar to the old formulation.

The Lord Platinum seemed to pair very well with the FHT, sharper than the Shark Stainless I used a few days ago, and with the lather I had a nice irritation free shave.

Have a good Friday gents.

Vintage month wasn't very kind to me given the pressure of work and, until this shave, I was 10 days' bearded and still didn't find time to post the pics. So it was a while ago. However, the boar brush is marked Cussons: Made in England (although faded) - I've posted previously that it appears to be a generic brush (I've found it in Boot sets); it would be good to know who was producing these.
1960 Flare Tip (F3). Vintage Imperial Leather soap. The Personna 74 is the last of this holder. The aftershave is quite light - floral, powdery with wood and spice. It reminded me of something I couldn't initially place, then it hit me - Mouchoir de Monsieur. Shared notes bergamot, lavender, geranium, patchouli, cedar wood, musk, tonka bean. Really very nice.

The bulldozers have now moved in to demolish the first ever Cussons soap factory in the country.
