  13. SOTD : 14th May 2019.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower:/ L'OREAL ~ Mountain Water Shower Gel.


    Cold wet flannel to my face.

    Pears ~ Transparent Soap.

    Brush: Frank Shaving ~ Synthetic.

    Face Lather.

    Soap: Palmira Serbia shaving soap.

    Blade: Personna Platinum.(1)

    Frankenrazor: Yaqi DOC Head. / Schmidt R10 Handle.


    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade menthol crystals +Eucalyptus peppermint,+ Tea Tree Oil Witch Hazel Mixture./ Benjamins~Mentholated Bay Rum.

    Aloe Vera Gel.


    Another early morning shave...

    It's been a considerable amount of time since i last used the personna platinum blade and forgot how smooth and forgiving these blades are, i had all intentions of using a 'lab blue' but had a change of plan and used the personna platinum instead, which is a equally good blade choice that matched up with the mild Yaqi DOC head wonderfully making a making a smooth non-aggressive but efficient duo.

    I can't remember the last i used used the Palmira shaving soap, which (smells like marzipan) very like 'Cella' but with a milder almond scent overall..My first attempt at lathering wasn't very good, due to me adding far too much water when lathering.After a few lathering attemps i finally got it to the consistancy of which i like..'I have much better results with a synthetic brush, I squeeze out all the water from the brush giving it a quick shake then loaded it on to the wet soap, Starting to face lather adding 2-3 drops of water to the tips of the brush, when needed which gave me a excellent slick protective lather for the full shave leaving a good post shave feel.

    A wonderfully smooth 3 pass + pick ups near bbs shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Aloe Vera Gel.

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

    Enjoy your day, ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
