🎁 🍾 “SOTD - Holiday Gifts/Purchases and New Years Theme Week” DECEMBER 27th, 2021 - January 2nd, 2022 🥂 🎉

Not open for further replies.
Here we are in yet another SOTD Theme Week and the first going into 2022! Let’s see the Christmas/Holiday gifts you received, anything you have bought over the holidays or incorporate a New Years theme!

The lovely Amazon shaving kits or glycerin soaps the wife and kids have you, a SOTD showing your favourite beverage to ring in 2022 with, etc.

Per usual, if you don’t have anything themed… post pics of your shave or just tell us about it or tell us what you are looking forward to in 2022!

As always, being creative and having fun IS mandatory but sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory but encouraged.

All the best in 2022!

Did my own shopping lol, at my age you get to do that. Picked up four brushes (you can see them below) and some shave soap. The soap and the brush on the right came from Wicked Rooster Farm. I used that brush and soap in tonight’s shave. I decided to go with my Viking Chieftain instead of my EJ de 89. I used the tiny Gillette I picked up and restored.

I say restored, but actually all I had to do was give it a good cleaning with Dawn dish detergent and a toothbrush 🪥 and polish it up with a polishing cloth. I also swapped out the handle for a smaller one.

I dubbed the little Gillette “Tiny Tim”, I use it to get the hard to reach places under my nose, corner of my lips. What a fantastic shave, can’t believe how much I’m enjoying this and how much I’ve progressed. Sorry for rambling, I didn’t intend to blabber on.

Aftershaves Stirling Witchhazel Wintergreen + Yaqi PinaColada Chillers Splash
A very nice soap! Nice scent, good creamy and very slick lather...great!!
This razor is very nice + easy to use, paired with this blade which I thought the time is up...turns out into a grand shave! The blade is still ever so smooth and still very efficient in 3passes gave me a bbs finish. Perhaps because I have more time and took it slower...Aftershaves were impressively great for freezing my face...😆

Feather AS-D2
Thayers WH L’Occitane ASB
TOBS Sandalwood
I know it may sound like heresy, but I told my wife and relatives no shaving goodies this year. I have too many soaps, creams, etc. However, last year I did get the TOBS Sandalwood fragrance I used today. I Switched to my Feather AS-D2 razor loaded with a fresh Feather blade. For me, the Feather/Feather combination is excellent. The Ethos soap, as usual, did a superb job. A nice, easy, shave this a.m. Have a good day and week, gents.
