Badger OTD + MMMonday, January 30th 2023

Razor : Star bar #4 Lather catcher model- Mfg 1929-30, tame mid range, well built for that era & with some care will last generations, With a new Gem PTFE blade this razor will give any razor I own a run for performance results at end of shave IMO. Very enjoyable shave this morning.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (1) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
Soap : Razorock The Dead Sea- very unique scent that is addictive to myself + excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Mountain lake" 24mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, excellent splay scrubber, great lather painter. Nice handle in the hand to use with a very good knot.
Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave : Razorock The Dead sea :001_wub: with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results :CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + 1 blemish weeper=:a17: Excellent shave this morning with my Star bar #4 with a coated Gem blade.
