61st shave with the Ethos Lavender. The brush today is a Paladin Chief. This is a large brush that works great for my four-pass face and two-pass head shave. This is the fifth shave with the Timeless/Med Prep combo. As usual, the Timeless/Med Prep combo is great. I will try to get another shave with the blade. A nice BBS shave with little effort. Have a great day, folks.
