SOTD "FREE WEEK" December 7th - December 13th, 2020

SOTD, Sunday, December 13, 2020

3017'd the sample of Stirling Deep Blue Sea. Got another puck coming shortly. Of the eight samples I bought from Stirling, this is my favorite. I'm thinking of getting Bleu de Chanel EDT to pair with it. It's such a great scent.

Have a great day, Gentlemen!

Gillette Diplomat + GSB (1) | Simpson Emperor 3 Silvertip | Ethos Succès x2

Birthday shave so it felt appropriate to use a razor made the year I was born. I would like to be in as good shape as this lovely Diplomat — the shave was smooth, comfortable, close and without the slightest drama. Much like me :p Seriously though, this year just making it this far somehow seems like accomplishment enough.
Big" shave
My biggest razor, brush and AS format.
Was waiting to skip a day without shaving to finally shave with the DS cosmetic Z0. Was also using that brush for the 2nd time. This razor was designed to perfectly fit the rule "No pressure, let the weight of the razor do the work". It's big, it's heavy, it's efficient. I'm happy that I've been able to do the 3 passes without any cuts or nicks with an Astra sp. The brush is fantastic and easily release lather, it doesnt stay jammed inside. Havent used Tabac since TabOCtober and when I opened the stick the scent filled the bathroom.
Razor : DS cosmetic Z0
Blade : Astra sp (3)
Brush : Yaqi Moka Badger

Stay safe and happy Sunday

A sensational cream absurdly forgotten in the drawer, as it is one of the best Sandals I have ever tasted with an exquisite aroma and unbeatable creaminess.

The Palm trees are more than 50 years old and are just as efficient as the most modern ones, they are very smooth.

Una crema sensacional olvidada absurdamente en el cajón, pues es de los mejores Sandalos que he probado con un exquisito aroma y una cremosidad inigualable.

Las Palmeras estas con mas de 50 años son igual de eficientes que las mas actuales,apuran muy suavemente .

Razor - Global Shave Club Java Espresso
Blade - Gillette Nacet
Brush - Craving Shaving "Woodstock" 26mm Duro
Soap - Declaration Grooming Cuir Et Epices
A/S - APR Fenchurch

The GSC Espresso is really a terrific razor. Smooth, maneuverable, and surprisingly efficient. After an ace lather from the DG, the razor knocked a ton of the stubble down with the first pass. A smooth second pass cleaned it up nicely. Face feels comfortable and very smooth, just how I like it.



Brush: Semogue Torga C-3 Finest Mistura 22/49
Soap: TFS Mandarino Tachibana
Razor: Worlds Finest Safety Razor
Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium (5)
ASL: TFS Kathmandu

A fabulous shave. :biggrin:

The Semogue Mistura 22mm is one terrific brush. I'm so glad Jim @Chan Eil Whiskers twisted my arm suggested it.

The moment I slapped on the ASL, I went dizzy for a couple of seconds. The powerful (to me) mix of the soap and the aftershave scents is pretty heady. Is this the start of a new addiction? :001_unsur :scared: :letterk1: :laugh:

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:
