Sunday night shave


Pre: Noxzema face wash
Soap: Zingari Man The Nomad
Brush: Stirling Kong
Razor: Gillette N2 1968 Slim, setting 7
Blade: Astra SP (#2)
Post: Alum followed by Stirling Bay Rum witch hazel and aloe splash

Another really good shave with the Slim on 7. Finally feel like I got Zingari Man dialed in and found it to be very slick, but not much cushion. Certainly the best shave I've had with one of their soaps. The scent is their take on Bay Rum and is definitely different from others I've tried. Not my favorite of theirs, but not bad at all. The Stirling Bay Rum splash is awesome. Heavy on the clove and feels fantastic.

Shaving recipe for today.

Prep: Warm shower / Original Source ~ Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.


Cold wet flannel to my face.

Simple ~ Sensitive Bar Soap + Wilko Men's shave Oil.

Brush : Yaqi ~ 24mm Sagrada Familia Synthetic.

Face Lather.

Soap : OSP ~ Neroli Shaving Soap.

Blade: Ladas Super Stainless. (1)

Razor: FaTip Grande.


Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint Lavender, +eucalyptus, Tea Tree Oil Witch Hazel Mixture./ 4711 ~ Eau De Cologne/ASL.

Aloe Vera Gel.


Early morning cold water shave,

This morning i was curious to try the Ladas blade in my FaTip Grande which is a more aggressive razor than the mild non-aggressive Yaqi DOC Head i had in my previous shave the verdict was another comfortable duo, which to be honest i wasn't sure if it would have worked but it did wonderfully feeling comfortably smooth and efficient.

A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups 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 divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.😎

Excellent lather from the soap. Densely creamy and slick.
Shave with razor paired with blade was sharpish, smooth and very comfortable for 3+1 passes for between a bbs to dfs result. 2 weepers for enjoying the shave too much. Very nice post & aftershaves. Rating 9.5/10
