A relaxing Sunday morning shave.
Everything in my shave set up this morning paired together wonderfully.
I have mentioned on many occasions in my posts that The scent of both Derby & Arko soaps is something i personally don't mind to my sense of smell it's just a 'clean pleasant soap/lemon citrus scent' which like the vast majority of shaving soaps with a few rules to the exception that I have used the scent virtually vanishes after I have done my cold-water face rinse.
A comfortable 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel.
My face is feeling smooth & smelling divine.
Keep safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen.
- So yes, I tried the BSC Turmeric shaving cream again, this time, a different brush and razor
- The razor is pretty mild. I find it better than Gillette SP razor (this too is a mild shaver razor). Maybe because Handle is shorter or maybe the construction is different or maybe both. I don't know yet. The blade was on 4th use today and stubble was just 1 days old
- Since Firefly is thicker than PW brush, it has lot more capacity to hold water and cream but still this shaving cream is a big no-no. This is my 4th shave and I can tell that either both shaving cream and blade are at fault or it's the shaving cream and the razor. Painful shave and 3 passes for a 1 days stubble. Had to put pressure to get the things done and there was stinging from alum on half the face. I do understand this blade is good but somehow after first shave it's not working out for me. I am surely throwing this shaving cream away. For the razors I am gonna try the blade with which I have the most experience, 7o'clock Permasharp (it bites). And If that does not work then I am also gonna wash and dry and then store away both milder razors (will check YouTube for other uses of a shaving cream)
