Razor: Gem Jr bar lather catcher- Mfg 1907-11, milder mid range, just a great razor with nice audio feedback, carefree shave!

Brush: Yaqi 24mm boar bristle- nice feel to this brush but it is a shedder like they mentioned when buying on the cheap.
Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel 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 Nivea balm.

Have some great shaves! Stay & think safe in these times!
 
Monday:

Just as a tip, if you guys, or girls even, wanna try a nice sweet, powdery, warm and woody scent, try out the one i used today, it was a complete blind-buy, and it is so cheap, and it can easily compete with some of those 100$+ scents!!! And i think this one is like 10$ I would call it unisex, cause i'm pretty sure a beautiful woman can pull this off as well, driving your man or woman insane ;) I'm just saying, we got men on this board, who as late as of yesterday, was getting turned on, by an Old Spice Shaving Mug so it would definitely work ;) (You know who you are) ;)

Preshave: Water Splash
Razor Head: Yaqi Single Edge Black Safety Razor Head
Razor Handle: Yaqi White & Chrome Brass Handle
Blade: Perma Sharp #1
Soap: Stirling Soap Co. Vanilla Sandalwood
Brush: Yaqi 22mm Synthetic Hair Tuxedo Knot White Resin Handle
Aftershave: Homemade Spray / Speick, for 15 minutes, then wash off
Perfume: Kanøn Norwegian Wood

Brush: Semogue Torga-C3 Finest Mistura 22/49
Soap: Orange Empire
Razor: 2020 Gillette Tech on custom olive wood handle
Blade: Personna Platinum Chrome (8)
ASL: Orange Empire

A fine shave. :biggrin:

It's another spring day Christmas! My new Goodfellas' Smile Orange Empire set arrived this morning.

Orange Empire shaving soap:
The soap was fine but it didn't shout out "I'm great" the way TFS and LEA Mentholated did. I found the scent very mild but pleasant.

Semogue Finest Mistura brush:
What can I say? This is the best brush EVER.

2020 Gillette Tech:
This $2.69 P&G made in China baby is starting to become my Number One favorite razor!

Personna Red blade:
Great! Smooth and sharp and no wax dots. What more could a guy want?

Orange Empire ASL:
Brilliant presence when slapped on the face and neck! I've definitely liked all three phases of the scent and am still enjoying it (three hours on now).


Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

Razor - Timeless SS 0.95 OC
Blade - Gillette Nacet
Brush - Paladin Chief "Krakatoa" 26mm 2-band
Soap - Wholly Kaw Fougere Mania
A/S - Proraso Cypress & Vetiver

Top-notch Fougere. Bright, fresh, and pleasant. Using a massive slew of brushes I think has given me more appreciation for Paladin knots; it was the balls today. Timeless was flawless as ever.
