Semogue 2012 TSN LE (#88)
\\ Muhle R89 w/ 7 O'Clock Blk SP \\ 3P Pre Per E Post Barba \\ JBM Evolution Line Violetas \\ NB Cooling AS Gel

What more can I say about JBM since the majority are a fan of his soaps. Today I used the Violetas which I'm almost done using but was just amazing for this morning's shave. Lather was rich and protective where the aroma was amazing. It smells as if it came from a Yankee Candle. I hope you all are having a great day Friends!

Soon i'll post some more" male" profile, like a merkur 23c razor,this was my first post.in my country there is nothing for wet shave, we must buy almost things in net.
There is no tradition in wet shave.i'm building a arsenal for this job. I shoped this week: A dr harris -shave cream, one e. Jagger r89dl and one merkur 23 c long handle.
Two tuber from portugal- lavanda shave cream and three floids splashes,for a basic practice.
After saw here in this forum, various articles about wet shave.that is a beggining.

I had never used Tabac until this morning. I had picked it up at Merz's in Chicago this past summer and had been waiting for the right morning. It was in the 30's when I left the house this morning, so it seemed like a perfect day to try this new combination. What a great start to the day!

 
Hey raposoIII,

Sorry to hear that wetshaving isn't so prevalent in Brazil. It's nice to be able to buy shaving gear locally. I live in Canada and buy most of my shaving stuff online as well --usually from the US.

This site is awesome and you will find tons of helpful information here, with regard to your recent introduction to wetshaving.

ImtheGluestick and I were getting a laugh out of the fact that in North America the terms "Brazilian" and "Hair removal" connote something quite different than what you are referring to.

Welcome to B&B :badger:
 
Good morning!

Yesterday’s Monday shave was plain ok, my face was still recovering from the Sunday shave with a Feather/Cadet OC combo:

Musgo Real pre-shave oil
Martin de Candre scented shave soap
Mühle Basic Nr. 02 shave brush, Silver Tip Fibre
Merkur 12C open comb
KAI blade (1.)
Bloc Osma Alum
D.R. Harris Bay Rum after shave


My Tuesday shave today was pure Bliss and truly an enjoyable experience:

Martin de Candre “Savon Vetyver” for the face wash
Musgo Real pre-shave oil
Calani Cadre Noir shave soap
Mühle Basic Nr. 02 shave brush, Silver Tip Fibre
Merkur 12C open comb
KAI blade (2.)
Bloc Osma Alum
Musgo Real Classic after shave

Wishing all of you a splendid day ahead!
 
yes, here there is not a shave tradition,because this practice losted around 80's years. i remember my granpa wake up at 4 am, hearding some ophera and make a shave with a stright razor.he was a barber, a professional for years in 50's decade.this job here is looks like a "minor " job. in us i did a shave and the barber is a great "surgeon".

I wish I had memories like that. I was born in '86 and still have a half-hearted resentment toward the weird ethos and ambiance of times since. Hah!

A ridiculous thing to say, perhaps. I sometimes wonder If things now shouldn't be a little simpler so that someday my grandkids can recollect my likeness with such fond sentiments and not just remember a strange blur of cultural perplexity (read Delillo "white noise")

The simple things, eh? :thumbup1:
