SOTD "FREE WEEK" August 24th - August 30th, 2020


Sunday Shave vign.jpg

Back to Tabac. Should be the name of a book! The brush was a Paladin Lotus. A 28mm brush that makes great lather. The razor is a gold-tone Aristocrat loaded with a Doco Plat st300 blade. I used Thayers WH and L'Occtaine ASB. I don't know how the Neutrogena snuck in the photo! The frag was TOBS Sandalwood Cologne.
Sunday Schick Shave, Aug 30th 2020

Razor: Schick injector E type Canadian Variant- Mfg 1930's & 40's N.D.Codes. Excellent mid range razor, easy for any part of your face to get at!
Blade: Personna SS PTFE(2) Very sharp blade, smooths out over time & excellent cost per shave if that matters to some.
Soap: Nivea Sensitive skin shave cream, nice mild scent, with good protection.
Brush: Yaqi Tuxedo knot 24mm synthetic"Sagrada Familia" great brush for lather with cloud like soft tip feel. I visited the Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona Spain years back, best thing I did was travel a little before these times came! Things change and not for the better it seems!
Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
Prep:Cold water rinse after each pass of 3 + any pick ups.
Post shave: Fine fresh Vetiver:001_wub: with witch hazel + a small dollop of Nivea balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers =:a17:Excellent shave with my Schick injector E type with a Personna injector blade.

I forgot how good this soap is. Marco's method gave me a ton of creamy, super hydrated lather that has incredible residual slickness. This is really an excellent soap that flies under the radar. The blade was again very smooth, and the shave was excellent.
