    Advise with wood shave bowl, it stinks!

    Would lathering up some cheap soap in it and rinsing it out gradually absorb the stink?

    365 shaves in 2021.

    Wednesday 24th Feb, shave #55. Preshave: Hot washcloth, no oil Soap: Speick, bowl-lathered Brush: Men-U boar Razor: GC.68 OC, Astra SP #5 Post-shave: Nivea Balm. I think the OC game changer must work best at a slightly different angle than the safety bar, which is why I'm struggling to get...

    Poll: do you have one favorite razor or do you prefer rotation?

    There are other things in play, but most of the time it is either the 6S or one of several Game Changers. When I'm using the 6S, I wonder why I bothered to try anything else, but on the other hand, when I'm using the GCs, I like them just as much. Happy to be conflicted. :001_smile

    Saturday 20th Feb, shave #51. Preshave: Hot washcloth, glycerine Soap: MWF, bowl-lathered Brush: Men-U boar Razor: GC.68 SB, Astra SP #2 Post-shave: Nivea Balm. I was only aiming for an easy DFS, but got better than that. The .68 game changer is good enough for the whole job on one day's...

    Nivea 2-Phase Aftershave Lotion

    I like the standard Nivea Balm in the white bottle, and use it a lot. As far as I can work out, their "Nivea Sensitive Moisturiser" is almost the same stuff, but twice as concentrated, so have used it to enhance the Balm after a really bad shave. The packaging here said "New" too. Top of the...
