Shaving Recipe For the day.

Prep: Warm shower:/Asda Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.

Cold wet flannel to my face.
Pears Lemon ~ Flower Transparent Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
Brush: Chinese Unbranded Silvertip Fibre.
Bowl Lather.
Tesco's Ceramic 'Cosmo' Side Bowl.
Lather: The body Shop ~ Maca root & Aloe shaving cream.
Blade: Derby Premium. (2)
Razor: Mühle r89.

Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade (~Winter mix~) peppermint lavender eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Witch Hazel Mixture./ Giorgio Beverly Hills ~ Ocean Dream ASL./Wilko ~ Men's Moisturiser.

I've mentioned before if i had to have only one DE Razor the Muhle R89 would be a very strong contender up until i added the Parker 55SL Semi-Slant razor to my humble collection which is now on equal par to my beloved Muhle r89.. I will always have a soft spot for the Muhle r89 & Merkur 34c as both razors helped me to develop my technique and gain my shaving confidence, for that reason alone i will never part with either razor.

A relaxing 3 pass + pick ups Close comfortable Sunday morning shave with no errors to report...Finishing the last shave of the month off with a small dollop of Wilko ~ Men's Moisturiser.

My face is feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy Sunday ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Sunday, 31st January 2021

Soap: TOBS Avocado
Brush: Semogue 1305
Razor: Feather Popular
Blade: Feather #1
ASL: Humphrey's Cucumber and Melon Witch Hazel + ASL Couto

First time using both this TOBS and the Feather Popular. Very good soap. I found the razor to be very mild and well designed, just a bit light for my taste. I think I've not extracted the best of her because of my inexperience using it. Not a fenomenal shave, but still pretty darn good. 8/10.
