January 2022 Gentlemanly Restraint Until Month End (GRUME)

Still in. While going through B&B last night I stumbled on a thread about the Yaqi Mellon and how good it is, so today I decided I would try mine. I bought it a couple years ago when I bought the Katana head and have never used it. So today I decided to remedy that. I put in a fresh Treet Falcon blade and did my normal S-N head shave. I like it, the Yaqi razor heads are impressive when you consider the price. Single pass with touch-up got me my normal smooth shave. I'll use for the next week to see what I think of it. But not bad.

Yaqi Mellon razor
Treet Falcon carbon blade
Stirling Bay Rum
Omega Boar brush
Alba Botanica 98% Aloe Vera

Still in, decided to get the kit change a bit and have a different picture for the last bleu SOTD thread, well if I understand how that thread works ... Added the Marvis aquatic Mint and blue tooth brush to the morning grooming seance

Prep : warm shower/ Nivea Men Deep cleaning face scrub
Pre shave : Cremo cream cooling formula
Brush : Maggard SY24 synthetic
Cream : Nivea Blue
Razor : Merkur 34 HD
Blade : GSB (2)
Post : alum block , Nivea Men Sensitive balm

Still a bleh shave to say the least, sharper blade and me do not agree , 2 and done, I had nacet and platinium blade next to try, I will just postpone this until a later much later date and will get back to the Voshkod blade for the forceable future. quite a bit of irritation too.


I'll give my face a 3 day break, do a 1 pass , chin touch up mow down on Wednesday and give it another 3 days before doing another shave next saturday. I guess the next resupply date will see me get my first 100 purchase done, I have 1 tuck left of those Voshkod blade.
 
I think this counts as an exception. You can order group buys and remain in. I ordered the Lemondrop 26mm Fan!

Exceptions:

1. Members may participate in B&B Group Buys or B&B branded shaving item purchases, because these may be limited items and all support this common ground. They must be advertised on behalf of B&B to qualify. In an effort to stay true to restraints commitments, please limit B&B purchases to one (1) shaving item per month, including contributions to B&B! (All Non-Shaving B&B items are fair game.)

Still in.

The last shave this month with the SOC boar, I'm really glad I decided to stick with it for a month, it's just so much more softer now, I thought it was already well broken in, but there was more to be had. It's a really nice brush, I don't know why I didn't come back to it more often. It needs to be recommended more often imo.

I will use mine today as well.

Pre-shave: hot shower
Lather: Williams / Stirling Executive Man
Brush: Omega Professional Boar

The Williams puck has gotten small enough that it now sits atop the Stirling. Early start to the day. CCS in 2 passes.

Peace
