(Face & Head Shave)

A new shave set up to start the weekend....It's been some time since i used the Razorock "WTP?!"Orange Sunrise Shaving Soap I find after the soap has been bloomed in tepid tap water for few minutes I'm rewarded with a rich, creamy slick protective lather with a good post shave feel. A superb soap which i will be using more often in the up and coming months...

For my head shave I did the first pass using my 94R and finished off with the remaining second +pick up passes with the Gillette guard for another superb error free head shave.

I've came to realise that the Gillette guard works wonderfully with just 2-days head stubble max any more is a struggle for the razor. The first pass with the 94R let the Gillette guard work effectively on the remaining passes.

I will use the (blade/cartridge) for it's fifth outing & final outing on Tuesday for my second head/dome shave of the week.

Another enjoyable close comfortable face and head shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small squirts of Tommy Hilfiger Bold EdT to the pulse points

My face & precious swede are feeling cool smooth, & smelling divine. 😉

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen. :cool:

Starting the weekend off with a different razor and blade: the Mergress XL paired with a Wizamet blade. At one time I had several adjustable razor in my rotation but now this is the only one. Paired with a Wizamet blade this does a good job. Today’s brush is my latest Paladin purchase: the 2023 B&B Contributor brush, Chief model. Like all Paladin brushes, it did an excellent job. A nice, smooth, nick-free shave today. Have a great day and weekend, folks.
