SE SOTD, January 21 2023

Razor : TNNSER, 3D printed by T White- Mfg 2020> great mid range, light weight, ergonomic handle and a joy to use. Uses a Gem blade.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (7) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
Soap : Yaqi Sandal wood- Not herbal sandalwood and has a sweet scent, below average lather qulities. Reasonable slickness but dissipates, not my favorite sandalwood. I guess I like the herbal Sandalwoods more and will stick to them.
Brush : Yaqi "black marble" 24mm silvertip badger, excellent lather generator, heavenly pillow like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter.
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 : Proraso red Sandalwood with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Excellent shave with my TNNSER with a coated Gem blade.

Face wash with Neutrogena Liquid Face Soap

Thayers WH & PAA Mysterium Serum
Versace, The Dreamer
Since I finished my GD Lavender Mallard yesterday I had to pick a new soap. My choice has been stashed away for 11 years: Martin de Candre. I picked up this soap when my late wife and I visited France in 2012. It was always a favorite of mine and I know the huge jar will last a long time. The Duke 3 did a nice job of making lather and the soap performed superbly. A perfect shave on a beautiful day. Have a good one, folks.
