22 May 2020 – lunchtime :) .

1 days' growth …. no issues shave – the R89 helps, being a “benign” razor. Used the Astra blade for the first time – TBH can't really tell if there's a difference to the BIC blades I have been using regularly. Erasmic soap lathers very well – nothing special, an everyday budget soap.

Prep: Aldi Bath Soap & Nuage Shave Oil
Brush: Yaqi Rainbow 26mm
Razor: MÜHLE R89
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum (1)
Soap: Erasmic Soap
After: Cold Water Splash - Ajanta Alum - Autograph ASB

Friday Mixup.

Brush: Jefferson the Fae B9B
Razor: Gillette Aristocrat Jr.
Blade: Gillette Platinum (4)
Lather: B&M Adagio
Post Shave: Summer Break Soaps Field Day
Frag: Armaf CDNIM

Sunny, warm day here so I'm going with some citrus grass mixup. I enjoy the sweet grass smell from Field day and figured out I would mix it up with the lime-forward scent of Adagio. CDNIM is pretty much an Aventus dupe, which I'm not always keen on but I'm feeling the fresh, light scent these days.

Sotd - Friday the 22nd of May

Prep - facial scrub
razor - Gillette Slim (3)
blade - Nacet (crocodylus niloticus - 1)
brush - Simpsons Chubby 2 - best
soap - Meissner Tremonia - Black Beer No.1
post - witch hazel
a/s - Myrsol - Agua Balsamica
balm - Nivea Sensitive
scent - Sauvage edp.

Result? Astonishing - a new benchmark - in terms of closeness and comfort - the shaving gods were smiling on me today - were it not for the fact that I could hear the Slim cutting my two day beard - I would have sworn that I had forgotten to put a new blade in. Really. I say again - astonishing. I hope all yours are just as good - cheers - I.

That's an impressive bloom on your Chubby!*

The star of the show today was @BrianH Eboracum, although i do enjoy a minty shave the Eboracum takes it that step further with the addition of Cedarwood and that makes it for me as i feel it reduces the "sweetness" of the scent. So much so i have made my own take on it with an Argan Oil lotion.
I had copious amounts of wonderful lather to protect my chin during the shave, a little goes far and the resulting lather is very very good.
3 passes for a BBS finish today.
A nice post shave leaving me feeling very refreshed.
Stay Safe and Enjoy your day All
Thank you
