An excellent shave. :cornut:

Today was my first experience of Williams Mug Shaving Soap imported here (in the UK) from the US all the way across the pond, at great expense. My excuse? I had to try it.

Williams "first shave" verdict:
Easy and pleasant to use. Very similar to MWF, including the soapy/creamy/slightly-sickly scent. (I must admit to missing my new "Rasozero Agrumella" love.)

Due to the scent, and thinking about food (as one does) I decided to follow it up with Reuzel (lard and apple). (For me) that was a great choice.

So there you have it. More information that's no doubt useless to anyone but me. :laugh:

Happy shaves aw youse. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Brush: Omega Mixed Midget
Razor: Gillette N2 1968 Slim, setting 9
Blade: Astra SP (#2)
Post: Alum followed by Thayer’s Lemon witch hazel, Nivea Sensitive Cool balm, and hyaluronic acid

Considering how bad Thursday's shave was, tonight's was okay. I'm really glad I skipped yesterday and I'm going to skip tomorrow, too. I had not realized how badly I'd shredded my neck on Thursday. It's still inflamed and sensitive, but I did manage to get through the shave without drama (read: bloodshed).

Between my still-inflamed neck and the alum, I decided to forego my original plan of aftershave and kept it to witch hazel and Nivea. And then remembered my hyaluronic acid had arrived, so added that after. That Thayer's is fantastic!

A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

It's been a while since i last used the The Haslinger Sheep soap is a magnificent performer with only a slight clean pleasant fragrance 'to my nose'.

I personally find the vast majority of shaving soap scents disappear once i have rinsed my face with cold water.

The schafmilch sheep milk soap texture reminds me of MWF/ Kent shaving soap which all contain lanolin of which my mature skin type loves, what i instantly liked about it was it lathered without the addition of blooming creating a wonderful luxurious slick protective lather which doesn't dissipate on my face between each pass leaving a superb post shave feel.

Another very comfortable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

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

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