The Dorco P.P. paired together excellently with the Variant, very smooth another great match, mowing through my stubble effortlessly,showing no signs of pulling or feeling tuggy in between each of the passes.

A very comfortable 3 pass + pick ups silky smooth efficient shave, with no errors to report...I can't praise the parker Variant enough at the moment..I know its only my second shave, but i instantly found my angle from the first pass, making the shave really comfortable enjoyable experience yet again..Outstanding shave.

Finishing the shave off with a generous splash of Gillette ~ Blue A/S Lotion...First time use of the birthday present A/S splash, which has a nice fresh fragrance,& a soothing after burn..good stuff.:)

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling devine.;)

Prep ~ Valbora Gylcerlanoina soap, Shower.
Razor ~ Gem Micro-Matic Open Comb
Blade ~ Gem Stainless
Soap ~ Pre de Provence "63"
Brush ~ Omega Boar 011829
Post ~ Vitos Tobacco Aftershave
Scent ~ Black To Black EDP by Mancera, Paris

A soap I have not used much and there is no good reason for it, it is a very good soap indeed.
The Gem OCMM was predictably good at what it was made to do and left me fresh faced and happy with my choice today.
The French shave soap was a little spicy so my choice of EDP was a close match, it is french and spicy! :) and very nice it is too!

Have a great weekend people.....P.

+1 on the Pre De Province No63
It really is a good performing soap with a lovely floral / spicy scent.
The matching balm is very good too with a long lasting scent.

As it was only about fifteen hours from my last shave I opted for the Featherweight but stuck with the Thayers, as I wanted to try and gauge if this soap was as nourishing as yesterday's Eufros.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Morning shave

Olive Oil Soap
PAA CaD
Chubby 2 Best Badger
Wilkinson Sword Sticky
Gillette 7 O’Clock Yellow (1)
Thayers Witch Hazel (unscented)
Fine American Blend Aftershave
YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme EDT

I love the Sticky! Yet another gift from my generous mate @Boru62, it’s a mild razor but very efficient with a sharp blade. Three very comfortable passes for BB smooth. In fact this is the beauty of traditional shaving for me. Experimenting with blades, choosing between mild or aggressive razors, adjusting the number of passes accordingly, and yet still achieving excellent results. Different roads to the same destination. Great fun. Thanks Kevin. Have a great weekend gents.
