My number 1 soap! Really love this particular pipe-tobacco scent and the lather is top-notch too...very rich, creamy, and super slick...
A very good shave with this razor paired with the blade. Very easy, smooth, and comfortable 3passes for a bbs finish.
Would have been perfect except a bump was loped off...dang! The matching aftershave was just excellent!!

Today it started pleasantly enough in the shave studio. Happily I went about my business getting shaved. During the shave I had a few moments when I was stalked by the home shavers natural enemy, a heinous predator known as the teenager daughter. Opening the studio door I heard that immortal words “Oh your here”. Fortunately she moved on quickly much to my relief allowing me to complete a work-a-day shave in peace.

Not enough cream for a complete shave so mixed a combo of the cream and Ethos soap for a super lather. A very nice shave. This is the 8th shave with the Timeless-Lab combo. It continued to give a smooth, close shave. Have a great week, folks.

______

Pre: Wash w/CeraVe bar
Brush: H.I.S 25mm synth
Lather: Body Shop "Maca Root" cream
Razor: Hone "Type 15"
Blade: Astra blue
Post: GBS Alum bar
Balm: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion
Frag: Caron "Pour Un Homme"

OD'd on lather this morning.
Absentmindedly loaded my
brush with cream as if I were
swirling a hard-milled puck.
Stuff was thick as Spackle, but
I carried forth like a true B&B'r.

Anyway, I had a wonderful
shave despite having to rinse
a half-dozen times to get all
the soap off.


Stay healthy,

Bill
