A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

It's been a while since i last used the Weishi 2.0 Adjustable...I find the higher setting are more suited to my skin type. I have an array of in-expensive Chinese clone razors which all provide me with socially acceptable shaves.

The Weishi 2.0 Adjustable/ Silver Star was another smooth efficient combo...The Weishi Adjustable performance on the higher settings gives a superb efficient comfortable shave.

Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine. ;)

Keep safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen. :cool:

SOTD 16-Apr

Brush: Highlander M7 Style
Soap: A&E Emerald Moss
Razor: Friodur 17
Post: A&E Emerald Moss

Cracking finish today, nice smooth and drama free shave.

The Emerald Moss was a risky one, based on Sir Irisch Moos, just in general the scent description tells me it isn't my norm but thought I'd branch out. This wasn't helped with the smell off the puck, it just didn't grab me and I almost popped it aside to potentially to go to BST. However thought sod it, I'll give it a bash. Glad I did, as soon as I started to load and lather it improves immeasurably. It was actually very very pleasant, and as a bonus the Mrs actually commented saying that she liked it.

So a game of two halves, ultimately ending a victory, so happy days. I'm on a roll with these acquisitions, we'll see how the Black fairs when I get around to that one.

Hope everyone has a grand one!

Face wash with Neutrogena Liquid Face Soap
Martin de Candre
Paladin El Dorado
Captain’s Choice Copper
Wolfman WRS SB 1.05
Personna Medical Prep
Thayers WH & Every Man Jack ASB
Yves Saint Laurent
This is my second shave in a row with the Wolfman WR 2 SB 1.05 paired with a Personna Medical Prep blade. That combo resulted in another close shave. However, it could have been a disaster. I did not seat the blade properly when I cleaned the razor yesterday and the gap between the head and cap was huge. The first stroke was harsh so I put on my glasses and saw my error. I reseated the blade and all was well. The brush today is one of my favorites: a Paladin El Dorado. As always the brush had an easy time loading the soap and making a rich, slick lather. MdC is on its 76th use. A perfect shave. Have a good one, folks.

Razor: Gillette 1940s SuperSpeed
