Greetings,

Face & head Shave.

A new shave set up to start the Weekend....The EJ limes & pomegranate shaving cream created a wonderful lather in a short space of time leaving an excellent post shave feel.

Carrying on with the Treet Dura Sharp another carbon which i have only used a few times... I forgot how sharp & smooth these blades are near feather sharp without feeling over sharp & sometimes rough...They worked wonderfully with the R41 making a great razor & blade duo.

An invigorating close comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few small squirts of Milton Lloyd Essentials No9 EdP to the chest & pulse points.

My face & precious swede are feeling silky smooth & smelling divine. ;)

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Razor Feather AC Clone Kamisori
Blade Feather ProGuard 2nd
Aftershaves Stirling Witchhazel Wintergreen + Yaqi Lemon Lime Cedarwood Splash
Nice enough soap with a good scent, slight cooling, and a lather that's creamy and slick enough...
Good enough shave too with the razor and blade combination. 3passes for a mostly bbs finish. Good cooling aftershaves.

Prep: Shower, Palmolive Olive Oil Soap,
Soap: TDS Rose Notes
Brush: 24mm Yaqi Chianti Tuxedo
Razor: Merkur 34C HD
Blade: Gillette Nacet (3)
Post: TDS Rose ASL, RSC Balm

With all the new stuff to try, I still found myself falling back on the favourites for a tried and tested quick turnaround. I'll be sad when the TDS Rose soap runs out in the next few shaves. Definitely one of the best purchases of 2020.

I've really enjoyed the past few shaves with the H1. I've been debating whether or not to sell it as I've got a Windsor set, S1&2 and Windsor Pro in the den. It saddens me but I'm going to let it go as I've got to be brutal in my reduction. It will be on the BST soon along with the (also great) R2 plate.

Pre, hot water
Brush, Razorock Beehive
Razor, Razorock Gamechanger -68OC
Blade, Lords Silver Star
Cream, Lider Classic
A/S, Lider Classic

This lathered ok. Not quite as thick and creamy as the Bond Cream the other day. The fragrance was a little more noticeable, a tad medicinal but not Arko like. Maybe a little menthol.

A 3 grain pass. No weepers / cuts. It felt a little closer than the Razorock SLOC the other day which was with the same blade.

The Lider Classic A/S lotion went on and felt good. Another good DE shave!

Have a good weekend all!

Ben
