Sunday Schick shave, March 5th 2023

Razor : Schick Golden 500 injector model with the hydro- magic feature- Mfg1957-64, mild range, very attractive injector & possibly uni-sex with the total length of 5 3/8 inches. Well built with the hydro-magic feature makes for good cleaning after done shaving. Very enjoyable shave this morning going back in time. My birthday razor year falls in there also when Mfg(1959).
Blade : Personna SS PTFE injector(5) Sharp and smooths out nicely, this razor has not been used for months and the blade is still working well, that is the nice thing about Personna blades they do not degrade quickly IMO.
Soap : Razorock The Dead Sea croap- very enjoyable unique scent (hard to explain) with excellent lather qualities.:thumbup:
Brush : Yaqi "mountain lake" 24mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, very nice splay scrubber + great lather painter. Handle feels great in the hand and excellent brush in a lot aspects that make a great brush IMO.
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 "The Dead Sea":thumbup1: with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: excellent shave with my Schick Golden 500 hydro- magic with a coated Personna blade.

SOTD 06-Mar

Brush: Cadman 30mm Tuxedo
Soap: SH Kentucky Rain
Razor: PAL Injectomatic
Blade: B-20
Post: SH Kentucky Rain

Pleasant shave this morning, injectomatic working well. Went a little off kilter at one point and caught myself every so slightly. Despite that, still a very good finish.

Just about ready for the week to kick off, at least until I turn my PC on of course.

Hope everyone has a cracking day!
