Not open for further replies.
Hi fellow B&Bers!

Theme Week time AGAIN!

It's time to show the B&B community your favourite Artisan soaps and creams. Let’s see some limited or small production soaps and creams And tell us why you like them.

Being creative and having fun IS mandatory as usual. Sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory. Feel free to post any SOTD photo or just tell us about your shave.

We are talking about posting pics of tubs/tubes of soaps and creams here, so it isn’t rocket appliances! 😉 So the more creative the pics are, the better. And yes, Arko is unfortunately allowed. 😱

Brush: Highlander – Boti NC
Soap: Noble Otter – Plunder
Razor: Dovo Best 6/8
Post: Noble Otter – Plunder AS & EDP

Cracking shave, lovely smokey Plunder with the Highlander whipping up a great lather. Been a nice few days just on the straights but back to the norm tomorrow. A busy few with some early starts so chances are I won’t get the time until the weekend again. Just one more excuse to wish the week away whilst at work.

Hope everyone has a grand day!

Paladin PK 47
Captain’s Choice Copper
Karve with C Plate
Thayers WH & Ethos Skinfood
Versace, The Dreamer
Today’s brush is my first Paladin. I won the PK 47 in the Sue Auction and I liked it so much that I ended up buying several more. The Karve is loaded with a Wizamet blade for the 4th and final shave. The shave was nice and close. The MdC is on its 70th use. A perfect shave. Have a good day and week, folks.

GEMonday, April 10th, 2022

Razor : Gem Damaskeene 1912 open comb-Mfg 1912-17, mild to tame mid range, well built to last, very enjoyable razor to use with the Gem PTFE blades. The 1912 model was the most successful Gem ever produced and they sold millions of them. Had a excellent shave this morning.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (5) very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
Soap : Speick stick, nice mild spiced scent with excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "red Zebra" 26mm snow Leopard knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly luxury cloud like soft tips, Gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. One of my favorite 26mm synthetic brushes, every thing is great from handle to 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 King Louis Lavender with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)2 template 10.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Excellent shave with my Gem 1912 OC with a coated Gem blade.

Have some great shaves!

Yaqi sentinel 1.35
Schick blade (2)
Ariana and Evans alpha brush
Liquid lightening pre shave
Oaken lab plein air set
Captains choice obsidian copper shaving bowl

Another superb shave with the sentinel. Punches way above its price point. 5 drops of the Liquid lightening in the lather increases slickness.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast b5 balm to finish followed by the splash.

April 2023 GRUME
MdC Monday

Hello friends

After a cloudy Easter, the sun decided to give the grace of its presence today. To celebrate, I called Elvis and resorted to my new favorite razor: Green Cult 2.0 with plate II (the only one I have at the moment, but I hope to receive the IV in the next few days). Perma-Sharp (2), MdC Fougère, Semogue SOC Mistura and Brut completed the journey towards Paradise.

Have a nice week and great shaves.
