A relaxing Boots Shaving product trio Sunday morning shave.

After the close shave with my parker variant yesterday the mild, yet efficient enough Ming Shi 3000s made my Sunday morning shave a pleasurable experience.

The humble Boots shave stick provided a slick protective lather in a short space of time leaving a superb post shave feel to my face.

Another wonderful 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Boots ~ Freshwood ASB.

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

Stay safe, and enjoy sunday ladies & gentlemen.😎
That just looks like a mighty good shave. Really wish the Walgreens here would start stocking Boots stuff. They are the same company now.
The Boots shaving products have started to disappear from the stores here in the UK..If a product doesn't make a vast profit these days, then the production is discontinued unfortunately, even if the customer has bought and loved it for years.. Walgreens may not be able to import or sell the older Boots products.?
Thanks for the comments. Take care.
Yours. Barry :thumbsup:

Yesterday's shave was still close enough that I opted for my trusted mild razor of choice, the Merkur 15C. The Ethos leftovers from a couple days ago reconstituted an equally excellent lather, the brush was awesome, and away we went, the razor just cruising. The result was a nice close and supremely comfortable shave. Can't beat that!

Estrenando estas dos navajas afiladas x primera vez en condiciones gracias a los consejos del amigo @matias que después de una hora charlando largo y tendido ,me abrió los ojos para seguir afilando cosa que había dejado apartada hace tiempo.

Siendo tan satisfactorios que me he afeitado con las dos navajas a la vez para ver sus resultados.

Eso sí SCNHG ,un pequeño microcorte en la perilla fue la única incidencia ,por lo demás todo correcto.
