Thursday 9th September, shave #252.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Speick
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: GC.68 SB, Wizamet SI #1
Post-shave: Nivea Balm, Hyaluronic Acid.

Excellent shave with a fresh Wizamet. For me, Speick (stick soap made into a puck) has good in-shave performance, but only a passable post-shave feel.

Friday 10th September, shave #253.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Palmolive
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: Rockwell 6S R4, Personna #5
Post-shave: Nivea Balm.

For a lazy autopilot shave, I was pleased to get an irritation-free DFS+.

The soap delivered yet another 'final' shave, but I'd better put "make new Palmolive puck" on my to-do list.

Saturday 11th September, shave #254.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: MWF
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: GC.68 SB, Wizamet S1 #2
Post-shave: Nivea Balm.

A very close result, but I shouldn't have done that extra pass. A "blade burn surprise" wasn't the sort of BBS I had in mind. I think the Nivea balm has calmed it down now.

Sunday 12th September, shave #255.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Palmolive
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: Rockwell 6S R3, Astra SP #1
Post-shave: Nivea Balm.

Used the Rockwell with its mild R3 plate this time, and only did two passes (WTG, ATG). That gave an irritation-free shave, as hoped, with a better result than I expected.
 
Shave #256 (Believe my count is correct again, NO days missed!)

Wolfman WR1 razor
Lord Racer blade (day 2)
Shavemac Beagle 2-band badger (bulb)
Haslinger’s schafmilch soap
OS classic splash

Sad, but the Racer blade ’experiment’ did not work in my favor! :sob: :sob: :sob:

Nice bottle of red stuff there! (sorry for the technical description).

Shave #256. Exact same kit two days in a row for easy shaves. I miss the feel of a three pass shave when I don't have time for it. Imagepipe_50.jpg
 
MMMonday,SEptember 13th 2021 #256 of 256 consecutive days of daily shaving.

Razor: Gem Micromatic clog Pruf(Peerless 17 nib SB model),Mfg 1945, excellent mid range, built to last generations, great razor to use when blade use count gets high or any time. Brass construction and Micromatics where way ahead of the competition for TTO at first introduction 1930.
Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE(9) excellent blade, Very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely & predictable.
Soap: Ogallala Bayrum with sage & cedarwood. nice scent with a little clove, great lather qualities. I Load soap with damp brush from my bowl more pastier and then wet the face apply and wet as needed seems to work the best, total bowl lathering with it is finicky I have found. Nice soap regardless.
Brush: Yaqi 24mm Artic sky knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle scrubber + excellent lather painter.
Pre shave: brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
Post shave: Ogallala Bayrum with Sandal wood :001_wub: + a tiny dollop of CeraVe balm.(great stuff + scentless)
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17:excellent shave with my Micromatic Clog Pruf (Peerless model) and a coated Gem blade.
