OVERLANDER EVENING


Last night’s mostly cap-riding, zippy shave
Karve aluminum Overlander :001_wub:
Sharp Titanium (1)
Damp facecloth aka “shave binky
Simpson KH-1 17mm synthetic brush
Pre-shave: no
Lather: Canada Shaving Soap; face-lathered
Aftershave: Ulm Nom
Post-shave:: face wash with shave binky and a drop of hyaluronic acid

Decided to keep using the same setup in the same manner. Showered earlier in the day, I just lathered up and went. Slightly better results than the previous shave, only much faster.

SV Saturday
Semogue Saturdays!


Hello friends

Another beautiful tropical winter evening. I called my usual Saturday friends. Saponificio Varesino, Semogue, Greencult 2.0 and Gillette Silver Blue (4).

GC2.0 plate IV gave me a deep shave without a single scratch. GSB has something that I can't quite define, but it leaves the surface of my skin smooth as marble. It's the only blade that gives me this indescribable feeling. SV provides the best post shave among all my soaps. And the might Pegasus Mistura…my favorite brush. I finished with Malizia Uomo, a fresh vetiver.

With us, my new generation friends, Gabrielle Cavassa and Joshua Redman.

Have a nice Sunday and great shaves!

OVERLANDER EVENING


Last night’s mostly cap-riding, zippy shave
Karve aluminum Overlander :001_wub:
Sharp Titanium (1)
Damp facecloth aka “shave binky
Simpson KH-1 17mm synthetic brush
Pre-shave: waterboarding for a few minutes with shave binky
Lather: Canada Shaving Soap; face-lathered
Aftershave: Ulm Nom
Post-shave:: face wash with shave binky and a drop of hyaluronic acid

Love me some whisker soaking. The time is “counted” with diaphragmatic breathing and the cold water is refreshed after 64 counts. The shave felt just as prepped as one with a shower preceding it. Very comfortable and close enough.
