Sat 18 SR 100th SOTD (Major issues posting or reading due to limited Internet onsite so will not be posting much) Let me take the opportunity to wish all members a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Soap Yaqi Lemon Lime Cedarwood
Brush Yaqi 24mm Mojito 2 Band Badger
Razor Feather Clone Kamisori
Blade Feather ProGuard 5th Use
Aftershaves Stirling Witchhazel Wintergreen + Yaqi Lemon Lime Cedarwood Splash.
Quite a nice soap afterall. Light pleasant scent but a real cooling, thickly creamy & slick lather...
Technically my 100th SR shave but this may not count since it's so very enjoyable easy shave with the razor/blade pairing. Silky smooth, effortless efficiency in 3passes without issues for a bbs finish. Aftershaves were awesomely cold...

Razor: Hone "Type 15"
Blade: Bic "Chrome Platinum"

Another problematic shave.

I've had good results with Bic
"Chrome Platinums" in other
razors. They just don't
agree with the Hone.

OTOH, all was not lost: "The
Velvet Fog" was playing
on Pandora Radio.

Stay healthy,

2 passes WTG + touch ups. All but mustache. Comfortable during the shave. Some minor irritation on neck. First time using this soap; it’s fantastic. Technique still needs work. 8/10

Really a beautiful scent from this cream! It is my first ever shave cream/soap...
The lather qualities are just superb...so thickly creamy and so very slick...
An excellent shave with the razor paired with the blade + a shim. Smooth and efficient in 3passes for a mostly bbs finish. Aftershaves were terrific.
