SOTD : Saturday 26th May - Friday 1st June 2018.

image.jpeg Razor: Merkur 34c
Blade: Polsilver S.I. (1)
Brush: Omega 011829 Premium Boar
Soap: Cyril R Salter tallow hard soap
Post: Thayer's Cucumber Witch Hazel
Scent: Armani Acqua Di Gio

First use of the Omega premium which I acquired last week after Connaught's restock, and I'm very impressed. I only have one other boar to compare it, the excellent Semogue 620 which is ideal for face lathering. After a few days cold water treatment the bristles are softer than the Semogue was after a years use. The Salter soap is another recent purchase and another delight. It's particularly pleasing that at a time when many mass producers are reformulating and removing tallow, along comes one that reintroduces a hard tallow soap for only a few pounds. Lovely lavender scent with a touch of citrus to my nose. This soap has great cushion and a lovely post shave feel.
 


Omega 10051
Rockwell 6S
Personna Platinum Chrome (2)
Mondial Antica Barberia Original Citrus
Nivea 2 Phase & Epsilon Blue Mediterranean

Second use of this brush and it is a superb little bit of kit. Perfect size for a small tub like this Mondial soap, made another great lather. Lightly scented soap but a good performer, a much denser lather than previous efforts. A good combination between the Rockwell and Personna. Finished off with a splash of Epsilon, I can see this getting used a lot this coming summer.
 
Thur 31st May

Vulfix 404 mixed
Vitos Super Red
ES Claymore V1
Schick Proline [5 ]
JaguarPrestige A/S Lotion

As I had got 14 half decent Shaves out of the last blade, I thought a fresh one was needed.Despite being new it still provides a smooth and comfortable, some shortfall in the quality of finish was caused by me rushing things.I should have learnt by now ,at least rushing did not cause any problems.

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Emillion 2 Porcelain-Jade Finest (26/54)
I Coloniali shaving cream
Charcoal Goods Brass L1/Stork 'Ghost Rider' Bronze
Personna Super Platinum Chrome (10)
Guerlain Vétiver aftershave

This Emillion has extremely soft tips, contrasting with the slight "scritch" of the one yesterday and demonstrating the diversity of characters among the Finests. The I Coloniali is a very good cream, nearly equal in quality to the vintage British creams, and the aftershave is quite refreshing.
