Dalit Sandalwood Shaving Bowl & HJM Professional w/G5B Synthetic 24mm
Muhle R89 w/Souplex Bakelite Handle & Statum Platinum Chrome (1)
Pashana Original Aftershave

Starting off a sandalwood scented week ...
A second superb shave with the Fasan, and also with the same Polsilver SI blade. This is the blade's third outing and still getting a super close shave.
The Lider cream has a quite strong bathroom cleaner scent but performs superbly with a small amount of product. The matching aftershave has a hint of that smell but is subtler and much nicer.
I did have a couple of 'micro weepers' where I pushed to get super close agaisnt the grain but still a five star shave.

(Face & Head shave)

First combined face & head shave using the king C. Gillette which after the first few strokes on my head I found my shaving angle and felt comfortable to carry on...After my combined xtg/atg + pick up passes my head felt smooth with no feeling of irritation or any signs of blood running down my precious swede. I will do the same with the WS Sword Premium TTO in my next weeks head shaves for comparison.

The Cella shave cream provided me with an excellent lather its such a wonderful performer with it's cherry almond fragrance.

An enjoyable close face & head shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a generous splash of Denim Original ASL.

My face & precious Swede are feeling cool smooth, & smelling divine.;)

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