Today I am using my U,K. Aristocrat razor for the third day in a row. Today’s brush is my B&B LE 2013 made by Rudy Vey with a Shavemac knot. It never has a problem making great lather. The MdC soap is on its 170th shave. The soap is s wearing down in the middle of the puck but there’s plenty on the sides. A perfect BBS shave. Have a great day, folks.

Razor : Razorock Game changer.84 with a RR Radio nob handle 316- Mfg 2018> tame mid range, accurate machining and great finish QC. I like to use a Kai SS extra wide in my GC.84 for a little more blade feel. This morning shave was close and comfortable with no issues.
Blade : Kai SS extra wide (4)- sharp and smooth with excellent longevity. Nice blade for razors that need a little boost in performance.
Soap : Razorock Lavender, nice masculine scent of lavender + excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Aqua" 24mm High mountain silvertip, excellent lather generator, luxury pillow like soft tips, nice splay scrubber + great lather painter. I believe this is a different species of badger compared to my other silvertips appearance & feel. Very soft tips when dry but when new the tips can feel a little prickly when wet, that feel has mostly gone. I enjoy this brush because of the different face feel it offers.
Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave : Ach Brito Lavanda:001_wub: with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)3 template 9.5.1.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Excellent shave this morning + no issues with my RR GC.84 with a Kai SS Extra wide blade.

Have some great shaves!


I smell like a Christmas pudding

Brush: Simpson Chubby 2
Soap: Paradesha Farms Bay Rum
Razor: English Gillette Red Tip
Blade: Jewel
Aftershave: Paradesha Farms Bay Rum

My wife just returned from the Philippines with a gift of locally made Paradesha Farms Bay Rum shave soap and aftershave and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. The soap is firmer than a croap but not triple milled hard; it lathers well and the lather is stable and slick with a strong Bay Rum scent. The aftershave is in a heavy corked bottle with a large opening which necessitates careful pouring and there is a slight burn which I enjoy. Both the soap and aftershave have just the right amount of skin care properties which leave the face feeling supple and nourished without being greasy. I don't suppose this is easy to obtain outside of the Philippines but I strongly recommend it if you get the chance.
