Monday DECember 2

First shave of the month. Not sure what my focus is yet but starting with a razor and brush that are new to me.

Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
Soap - MWF
Brush - 30DC
Blade - GEM SS SE (1)
Razor - TNNSER 3D Clear
Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, RR Barbershop Blue A/S

Shave rating 5 of 5

5 days since last shave and I wanted to give these 2 new tools a try. I've got TNNSER 3D's in 2 other colors so was pretty confident in the shave I would get. Wasn't sure about the brush. I really like the handle but this is my first synthetic and I've never lathered with a synthetic. Well, it lathered really well and applied the lather well too. Maybe I won't have to replace the knot. I did a 2 pass shave, WTG and XTG and both passes were excellent, finished BBS. The MWF lathered really well as usual. The alum was a little vocal in a couple spots. Finished up with the Barbershop Blue A/S - I like this scent, just wish it lasted a little longer.

Happy DECember and great shaves everyone.

Nice! I, too, am a Deadpool fan. A few years ago, I asked Monica Gillam of Van Yulay to make me a Deadpool-themed soap that could be made available to the public. I told her it needed to smell like chimichangas and gunpowder. The real fragrance is latin spices, charred beef, and gunpowder. Amusing to say the least:

GILLETTE | Silver Blue (1)
MOON SOAPS | Amaretto Speciale

Pre-Shave: Kiss my Face Olive Oil Soap, cold water
Razor: Weber PH
Blade: Voskhod (1)
Brush: Rhodium Knots 2-band Silvertip

Post-Shave: Alum, Thayers Original Alcohol Free Witch Hazel, South Australian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday :thumbup:

Day three of Decadent December delivers my Ever Ready Streamline. My favorite Gem razor by far. BBS of both noggin and face. I really like the Gillette Pure Shaving Cream I used. It whipped up a nice thick, creamy, slick protective lather. Great shave that left me feeling cool(5 drops of M-Bomb and Cryogen AS), clean and refreshed. Shaving is my favorite part of the day!
