Brush: Omega 599 Super Badger 22/48
Cream: LEA Mentholated
Razor: Yuma YM-403
Blade: Personna Platinum Chrome (7)
ASL: Cool Lemon (home brew)

Another excellent shave. :biggrin:

Although the 599 is very nice it's a little too soft and lacking in backbone for my taste. That apart, everything was hunky-dory. Of course I'll give it at least several more shaves, as judging it on a single shave is somewhat harsh.


Happy shaves guys. :cornut:
 
Saturday shave

Prep: Noxzema
Soap: Southern Witchcrafts Lycanthropy
Brush: Simpson Astor A1 in Best
Razor: Fatip Lo Storto, #3
Blade: Kai Stainless, #3 and binned
Post: alum -> hyaluronic acid -> Dickinson's Witch Hazel and Florida Water mixed in hand and splashed on

Two-passes for DFS everywhere but a small patch on my Adam's Apple which was CCS. Less feedback from the alum tonight, but once again this was not a comfortable shave and my face is still feeling raw, albeit mostly smooth.

Soap Stirling Iced Pineapple
Brush Yaqi 24mm Green Mink
Razor Yaqi AC Brass
Blade Feather Professional 2nd use and somehow much more silky smooth!
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Stirling Witchhazel MitA + Hyaluronic + Proraso Green Splash
Wow-soap!! 1st wow is the intoxicating scent, 2nd wow is the cooling sensation and the last wow is the thickly creamy and slick lather...superb!!!
Shave with razor paired with 2nd use blade was much better than the 1st... silkier smooth and more comfortable. Very enjoyable 3passes without any issues for a mostly BBS result. A very nice & sharp blade this Feather Professional (I realized today a few hours after shaving how sharp it was because I found some micro-cut lines at the jawbone "below the ear' area as a result just putting the blade to my skin from going atg yesterday-no bleeding at all surprisingly).
Very nice cooling aftershaves too. Rating 10/10!

SOTD (100/2021)
10-04-2021

Preshave: frigid tap water
Brush: Semogue 1800
Soap: Ariana and Evans ~ Kaizen
Razor: Karve Brass Open Comb D-plate
Blade: Polsiver Super Iridium (1)
Post shave: frigid tap water, Ariana and Evans ~ Kaizen AS.

Shave no. 100 in 2021 - and this one has been one of the most comfortable shaves thus far. A very slick soap, a sharp blade and an efficient razor provided a silky smooth shave. Three lovely passes, bbs galore.

I din't judge my shaves but this shave would have been a 10/10.

Have a great weekend, y'all!
Love the photo :) :thumbsup:
 
I love the Estoril men's shave cream. It has a pleasant citrus scent, and performance is top notch for a supermarket cream

I think ice dive is a nice after shave, but I prefer my regular aqua velva. It has citrus notes, but the scent is a bit too strong and cologne like for me. As for performance, I can only compare it to aqua velva. Ice dive always gives me a nice burn after application, while av gives me almost zero.
Worth a try if you can find it cheap
Thanks :)

Have a nice day / evening, gentlemen, and gentletts :)

Feeling sharp is a state of mind. Looking sharp takes work.
