Very late shaves of the month post.

I apologize for the late shaves of the month post for December 2020.

December was all about using more of my international shave soaps, featuring one of my new Yaqi brushes the marble handled synthetic with a "plissoft" knot. I recently got another Yaqi brush, the sagrada familia straight from Yaqi South Africa, and a review on that brush as well as the bundubeard "mystery" soap will be released later this month.

Spoiler alert, I'm absolutely loving both products, it's really amazing how two excellent synthetic brushes can perform equally well while having different properties, but I'll get into that in the review later this month.

I must say i really enjoyed the Proraso this month even though i usually prefer tallow based soaps like the pipe smoke and Rooi Afrikaaner.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much of a difference the new synthetic made with the proraso, it was like using a completely different soap performance wise. I guess I'll have to go back and try some of the soaps i struggled to get good performance out of and test them with the synthetic brushes.

Shaves 1-5:
Razor: Gillette aristocrat barber pole handle
Brush: Yaqi marble handled synthetic (24mm)
