365 shaves in 2021.

Tuesday 23rd November, shave #327

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Saponificio Varesino 70th Anniversary Edition
Brush: Yaqi 24mm Synthetic Cashmere
Razor: Rockwell 6S, R3, Astra SP #7
Post-shave: Nivea 2-Phase Lotion.

Used the Rockwell, and got a near-BBS result with no irritation.

With good prep, R3 works on 24 hours of growth, and since I'm used to R4 or R5, there's hardly any blade feel.

There's a lot to be said for de-escalating the settings to the minimum that does the job.

Blade: Personna Israeli Red made in Germany (2)

SE SOTD, Nov26th 2021, Happy Thanks giving weekend in the USA, #330 of 330 consecutive daily shaving.

Razor: Yaqi V2 Excalibur AC 50mm, Mfg 2021> excellent tame mid range, good design, top cap needs manually alignment because of issues from some V1 Excalibur(no problems with my V1). I get great shaves mostly & excellent shave results is the bottom line.
Blade: Schick proline P30 injector (3) sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity. Great AC blade compared to the rest IMO.
Soap: Ach Brito Lavanda cream, nice mild lavender scent, excellent lather qualities,(misted)
Brush: Yaqi Artic sky 24mm synthetic, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, great 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: Ach Brito Lavada AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(Balm) + scentless.

Have some great shaves!
Shave # 329

Brush: Morris & Forndran 2XL, 2 Band Silvertip Finest Bulb, this bulb and Simpson’s 2 Band Silvertip are very much alike

Blade: Personna Israeli Red from Germany (4) and going strong, I have found no difference between the Israeli made and the German made, and the German made are a lot less expensive.

Soap: MDC Fougere, I find myself reaching for the MDC more often, it is the known consistancy of great lather.

Razor: Gillette 1956 B2 Redtip it is doing a great job substituting for the Wolfman

Post Shave: 4711, Hyaluronic Acid

Saturday 27th November, shave #331.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat
Brush: Yaqi 24mm synthetic cashmere
Razor: GC.68 SB, Astra SP #5
Post-shave: Nivea Balm, Hyaluronic Acid.

Used the Game Changer, and got a relaxing near-BBS. I'm getting on a lot better with the Yaqi synthetic than I do with boars.
