SOTD: Saturday 7th July -Friday 13th July 2018.

Wed 1th July

Omega 11126
Cyril Salter Solid Soap
Mongoose B3
Schick Proline ( 8 )
Pitralon Polar A/S Lotion

I am getting really confident when using these heavier AC/SE Razors, and consistently getting trouble free Shaves. Today it was a real pleasure using the Mongoose, and with the benefit of the great Salter lather had a really comfortable Shave, with the addition of a superbly close all round finish. How anyone has problems using these Razors
is a bit of a mystery.

Prep ~ Sheep & Goats milk soap, Shower
Razor ~ Cobra Classic
Blade ~ Proline P-30
Soap ~ Valbora Fougere
Brush ~ YaQi Moka Express badger
Post ~ Taylor of Old Bond St alcool free aftershave
Scent ~ Christian Dior ~ Leather Oud

A cracking shave and with all of the above it wasn't going to end any other way, silky smooth skin and a big smile on my face, I love this razor and I would never let it go,, it is my best SE razor and I can't see that changing any time soon.
To finnish off a Stella shave I needed some Stella juce and Dior's Leather Oud fits the bill.
Looking good, smelling great! :) P.

Have a great day folks.....P.

(no photo today, same set-up as yesterday)

Brush: Omega S10083
Soap: Palmolive stick
Razor: Wilkinson Sword Classic
Blade: Rapira Platinum Lux (2)

I bought this stick explicitly for use when travelling, but I'm so impressed with it I may well add it to my rotation at home too. I'm enjoying the blade also - there were a couple of weepers today, but my hand isn't as steady as usual after last night's excitement. I'm not going to try to blame it on the equipment.

Happy shaving.
Thur 12th July
RazoRock Syn. 24mm
P & B Spitfire
Alu. General / ES S/S Handle
Schick Proline [ 2 ]
Tuff Red A/S Lotion

I am starting to enjoy the Lightweight General a lot more now that I have fitted this non stock S/S Handle. I have found that is not only manoeuvrable but I can also use it quite easily without the need for application of pressure on the head. As a result I find it provides me with smooth comfortable Shaves, with a good quality all round finish.

Thursday 12th July

Zenith 506U TS - Lea Classic Cream - General Brass - Schick Proline P #6 - Alum - Electrif's Lemon Chill A/S - Dove Instant Hydration Cream

A very refreshing and extremely efficient result from todays setup. The gradual hit of menthol from the Lea gives a pleasant face cool. Followed by the more intense chill from my A/S blend.

Wickham’s 1912 Cashmere
RazoRock BC Silvertip 24mm synth
Face lather
ER 1912 Streamline
Thayer’s Cucumber and Aloe Vera
Wickham’s 1912 Cashmere after shave

Shaving planetary alignment today. A perfect shave in an imperfect world. Every time I use the Streamline I offer my thanks (as an agnostic, the recipient varies). This behemoth of a razor gives outstanding results with a gentle touch.

I hadn’t used the Wickham’s soap for a while, and it really is excellent; outstanding lather, performance and scent. It harmonises beautifully with the hardware and the crowning glory is the matching after shave. Sublime post shave feel...
Pre: Cold water face wash
Brush: S_J Panga Panga 26mm ST
Soap: Vreto C&C
Razor: Mühle R41 (2013)
Blade: Rockwell
Post: Cold water rinse, Myrsol F.Extra ASL

I bought a couple of Vreto soaps from @DamianJ and he kindly threw some Rockwell blades in gratis.
I really like the soap, nice rich lather, pretty slick and for a vegetarian soap quite nourishing.
The scent? Well, as I'm the fourth owner of it I didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. I get a nice warm, rich cigar smoke and something else I can't put my finger on, but it isn't cognac.
The blade? It seemed okay until it hit the wiry grey stubble and then it wasn't the best blade I've ever used but not the worst either.
All in all, a decent midweek shave.
Happy Shaving one and all.
