  6. SOTD : 16th 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: Yaqi ~ Sagrada Familia.

    Face Lather.

    Soap: Lea Shave Stick.

    Blade: Personna Platinum.(2)

    Razor: Edwin Jagger DE89.(Kelvin)


    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade menthol crystals +Eucalyptus peppermint,+ Tea Tree Oil Witch Hazel Mixture./Floid ~ Mentolado Vigoroso AKA ''Mentally Vigorous' ASL.

    Nivea Men ~ Sensitive Cooling Post Shave Balm.


    Another early morning shave,

    I started the week off with the spanish La toja stick, to finish off my SOTD this week i'm using the Lea Shave stick which provided me with a adequate slick protective lather for my shave..Superb.

    The E.J. DE89/Personna Platinum duo matched together wonderfully, mowing through my stubble with ease making the shave a pleasurable experience.

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

    Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Nivea Men ~ Sensitive Cooling Post Shave Balm.

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

    Enjoy your day, ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Beautiful shave today with the Wilkinson sword classic and the Wilkinson sword blade.

    The omega is already starting to soften up after two shaves, and its now perfect for face lathering.

    As usual the arko shave stick produced explosive lather, this stuff never fails to impress me, its absolutely fantastic.

    Decided to use my first ever aftershave which i actually got from my dad who got it from his today , it has an amazing clean scent.

    I finally retired the feather hi-stainless after 38 shaves!!

    Razor: Wilkinson sword classic
    Blade: Wilkinson sword (3)
    Brush: Omega 49
    Soap: Arko shave stick
    Aftershave balm: aquaeous cream
    Aftershave: Bahama mist Ego[​IMG]

    Love the new RazoRock HD handle on my German 37 slant!
    It's 5 mm shorter than the RR Barber Pole, but weighs the same (75 grams) -- much better balance (IMHO).

    Looks very slick — like a Formula 500 car — nice work.
    Ride that cap and watch those corners!
