Wonderful soap! The scent is refreshing, lather creamy, and very slick...
The shave with the razor and blade combination was uneventful & good. 3passes without issues for a bbs/dfs finish.
The aftershaves were just awesome!

Greetings,

A relaxing Sunday morning shave.

The Bath House soap provided a wonderful lather in a short space of time....I find this shaving soap similar to MWF which i like very much, it's fragrance to my nose is a very pleasant 'Spicy' scent which is a great autumn/winter soap, but i use it if and when to my fancy not just for the colder months of the year... Another soap that gives a superb post shave feel.

A wonderful smooth efficient razor & blade duo. I've mentioned in my past postings that the shaving products produced in the sub continents don't get the credit they rightly deserve.

A enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a few small squirts of OUD 24 Hours EdP to the pulse points..

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

Stay safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen. 😎
 
Yesterday was
SATURDAY
23 October, 2021

______

Razor: RazoRock "Mamba 70"
Blade: Lord "Platinum"
Pre: CeraVe "Moisturizing Bar"
Brush: H.I.S 25mm synth
Lather: Stirling Hot Apple Cider*
(This space reserved for alum bar.)
Balm: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion
Frag: Caron L'Anarchiste*

Set out for a good shave;
just missed a great shave.

Had plenty of time, but lacked
focus yesterday morning, so I
forgot to use my alum block.

I missed it, as it adds a nice
finish to a shave. No real harm
done, save for one tiny weeper
that the alum would have stanched.

This morning I plan to check my
brain at the shave den door and
pay more attention to the shave
at hand in the interests of both
results and enjoyment. All else
can wait outside.

Life, after all, is too short to rush
through such a simple pleasure.


*One more thing: L'Anarchiste

is a great complement to

Stirling Hot Apple Cider.

Stay healthy,

Bill
