Cream MacaRoot & Aloe
Brush Yaqi 24mm Aqua Tuxedo
Razor Yaqi AC Brass
Blade Feather ProGuard 2nd
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Stirling Witchhazel Wintergreen + Hyaluronic + MacaRoot Aloe Gel
Ever reliable cream! Nice scent, so easy to create a rich creamy and slick lather...
Ever reliable razor and blade combination! Effortless, fast, silky smooth, and very comfortable in 3passes for a mostly bbs result without any issues...so good (best for after a rough shave previously)! Matching aftershave was great!

Shaving recipe for today.

Prep: Warm shower:/Nivea Men Power Fresh Shower Gel.

Pre:
Cold wet flannel to my face.
Pears Transparent Bar Soap. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
Brush: Lider Turkish Boar.
Face Lather.
Lather : Arko Shave Stick.
Blade: Dorco Titan. (D2)
Razor: Parker Variant.(Settings) 3-wtg,4-atg + Pick ups.

Post:
Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils. + 3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Arko Comfort AS/Cologne + ASB.

Greetings,

Early morning shave,

A Turkish themed shave to finish my shaving week off...The Dorco Titan/Parker Variant duo has paired together wonderfully throughout the week.

A Enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a small dollop of Arko Comfort ASB.

The Parker variant has been a pleasure to shave with this week if i only had the choice to shave with any of my DE razors then the Variant would be a strong contender....It has been an interesting week using the Parker variant i have realised that i can get a close comfortable shave with only 2 passes + pick ups...Maybe it's the assertiveness of the variant settings but i intent to carry on using this shaving method for a while to see if i can get the same results with other DE & SE razors.

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

Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.😎

Back to the Feather/Feather combo for the 10th shave. The blade is still going strong. The Zenith with its backbone had no problems making a nice lather. It still surprises me that even with continual use this cream has remained harder than the usual cream. Until recently, I had not used this cream in a few years. However, it still performs great. A nice, BBS shave. Have a good one, B&Bers/
