SOTD : Saturday 10th March - Friday 16th March 2018

Date: 14 March 2018

Pre-shave:- Cold Water straight from the tap
Brush:- Semogue 2000 25/60mm
Soap/Cream:- I Coloniali 3x
Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice
Razor:– Muhle R41 v2013 head with Rockwell Chrome handle
Blade:- Kai Stainless Steel #3
Post-shave:- Thayers Witch Hazel & Tea Tree Oil / Lucky Tiger Aftershave & Face Tonic
Fragrance:- L'eau D'issey Pour Homme
 
Soap: Phoenix and Beau Sanskrit
Razor: R89
Blade: Sputnik (3)
Brush: Erasmic

Another soap sample, another face lather. There seems to be less lather than with the Nanny's yesterday, but I think I put less soap on my face in the first place, and what there is seems very slick. I would never have picked this soap based on the description, but it smells fantastic.

My initial plan on receiving the Newbie box was to use the R89 until today, then move onto the Futur clone, but I'm just getting the hang of it. I don't want to give it up yet!

All in all, a lovely shave.

Prep ~ Shower, Valobra tallow bath soap
Razor ~ General - Brass
Blade ~ proline
Soap ~ Enriched Monsavon
Brush ~ Omega Badger
Post ~ Bart's Balm's AS Rosemary & Sandalwood
Scent ~ Miller Harris - L' Air de Rien

everything worked perfectly, I was left super smooth from a few strokes with the General with skin that felt soft and supple from the enriched Monsavon, I applied my Barts's AS lotion anyway and the scent of the Rosemary & Sandalwood was wonderful, very close to Aqua di Parma, perfect.
My scent for today is L' Air de Rien by Miller Harris, a blend of Musk and Amber and Vanilla along with Neroli and Patchouli, quite soft and delicate, it's not overpowering and its quite unintrusive. I really like it.

I hope you all have a wonderful day......:) P.

I am really enjoying this version of the R41. After yesterday's shave there wasn't a lot to remove....so 2 passes for another super BBS shave:)
 
Hi!

Today, a warm shave in this rainy day:



The GFT Coconut cream is one of my favourites (this is the third tub I use), paired with this excellent Zenith boar I got a superb lather.

BTW how good is this cheap aluminium Lord handle that I discovered thanks to @Fido: it improves almost every head I use with it (in this case Rocwell 6c 5 comb). Not always a expensive&heavy SS handle is needed for a good shave!

Cheers!
And I'm still using a Lord handle on my old Tech every day!
 
Wednesday 14th March
Yaqi Sagrada Familia
OSP Spice Road
Ever Ready Streamline
GEM Stainless Coated #2
Alum Wash
Old Spice Original A/S
Gillette Pro 3in1 Balm

It's well known that a variety of spices is good for you. That coupled with the ingeneously and superbly designed Streamline produced a spectacular shave. One to remember.

Good day to you all!!!
 
14/3/18

Brush - Zenith B07
Soap - Proraso Green
Razor - Yaqi OC
Blade - Gillette 7OC Green Russia
Post - Nivea Balm
AS - Eyup Sabri Lemon

Into a few shaves with the Zenith B07 and it seems to be a bit of a lather eater so far. I thought about breaking it using the fridge method but the brush seems to be already soft and splays well so a bit of lather consumption isn't too much of a big deal.

The Yaqi OC head is very mild, possibly even milder than a Gillette Tech and with the 7OC Green was incredibly smooth, a really fine combination and was very efficient in the shave as well especially under my jaw which can be tricky to get good results at times.
