Fantastic shave today..a little while back @RussellR5555 passed on some advice after I’d had a slight reaction to the Mdc Agrumes saying I should load a lot less product onto the brush as it may be related to the concentration of lather on my face..after giving it some thought I decided to try a bowl lather something I don’t do often, just had a lovely shave with zero irritation from the soap so problem solved ! Thought it might be helpful and worth trying for others having problems with reacting to soaps..thanks Russ appreciate it I can now use my Mdc quite happily without issue. Feeling super smooth and refreshed nice way to end the evening really enjoyed this one !!

A late one for me had a busy day today trying to dodge this fine bank holiday weather..I nipped into savers and saw this new Nivea balm at £2.99 so picked one up have to say it’s very nice and refreshing it paired well with the macca root, similar to the other Nivea balms quite a mild scent. Had a great shave with the TI again feeling super smooth and ready to get a some rest 1A5045A8-F6BB-424A-A56F-030843D989F9.jpeg

Really enjoyed this one a short while back I ordered a 1kg brick of Vitos red extra coco..well it arrived this morning so have cut it up into chunks wrapped them in grease proof paper and put them in an airtight container ready to store in a drawer for as and when required...scraped the remnants from the plastic wrapper and spread it in the bowl ready for tonight’s shave !

What a fantastic shave I always enjoy using my Koraat near wedge and can’t wait to add another to the collection very soon..another item in tonight’s photo that I really enjoy using is the straight razor designs 3 inch latigo leather strop I picked it up at a great price here on the BST and use it every day...certainly money well spent, just an overall excellent shave superb results super smooth and feeling refreshed 0E3AE429-8910-42F3-B47F-AD8B9F3CB9A8.jpeg 292AC59B-2B08-4D79-954C-7570F2E922FB.jpeg 673854C5-79A2-4AD7-8746-95CF8FBD12EB.jpeg 68E62571-10FC-403F-B266-8D25D1CA6DF7.jpeg EF42C322-7880-435D-866C-DF6395206091.jpeg
