The Gillette 'NOS 94' blade has performed wonderfully with each of my shaves....I normally retire a blade after 4-5 max, but the 'NOS 94' i will use again in future shave as it's still got plenty of life within it...Finishing the shave with a small dollop of Boots ~ Fragrance Free Moisturising Lotion.

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

Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Thursday's Shave

Soap: Laugar Älvdans
Brush: 25mm Edwin Jagger Synthetic
Razor: Tanifuji 935
EDT: Chanel Pour Monsieur

First outing with the Laugar soap and I have to say the first impression was perfect , the scent is beautiful and subtle , the soap is a nice medium firm consistency lathers easily and produced a wonderful slick lather with the perfect amount of cushion, I maybe ran it just a touch dry but it was still extremely good. I dispensed with the Balm and Splash as a friend recommended I experience the post shave as it is meant to be and the results are exceptional it has lest my skin nicely moisturised and feeling great.

I will update more as I try it and the other one I have in the coming days and getting it dialled right in. @Blackmass as you asked me about it.

The Signature soap performed brilliantly as usual to give a wonderfully scented, slick, thick, lather.
3 Passes for a very close comfortable BBS finish, all finished off with a nice post shave routine.
