Sunday

Prep: Hot Shower-Stirling Coniferous Bath Soap
Soap: LA Shaving Soap-Woody Lavender
Razor: Maggard MR1
Blade: Gillette Platinum (3)
Brush: oscar11 TGN 2-Band Finest 24mmx50mm
Aftershave: Fine Platinum

WTG-XTG-ATG (adjusted angle for my beard a bit)

I used LASS Woody Lavender today. Great easy lather as usual. The MR1 and Gillette Platinum are a great match. I finished up with Fine’s new Platinum AS. What a great scent, and with more menthol than I expected. Great match-up!

Ladies and Gentleman,

i want to share my Shave of the Day with you. Today i used the following:

-Prep: hot towel
-Cream: Maca Root shave cream
-Brush: HJM Black Synthetic Fibre
-Razor: Gillette Fat Handle Tech
-Blade: Personna Lab Blue
-Aftershave: Proraso

Yesterday i couldn´t resist and bought the Maca Root shave cream. It was the right decision. The cream smells a bit like the "Nivea" cream. You need only a tiny amount of cream, which is absolutely enough for 3-4 passes. Very fast it will lather up to a creamy,thick lather with very good gliding and cushioning abilitys.Very nice. After the shave i rinsed with hot and cold water, used my Proraso and now, minutes after the shave, my skin feels really good. It seems to me that there is a little "film" on my skin. Great!!! It´s not the cheapest cream, but it´s not overprized for what the cream offers. I have to say, that i like it.

So, thank´s for reading.

Have a great time, enjoy your shave.

Greetings

Thorsten​
