Stirling Dutchess Sample
Pink woolf Oceanic Blue
Anherb After Shave

Out of the three Prosaso two samples and one Stirling Dutchess it was Dutchess turn today.

Scopped out a spoonful of dutchess on a pre soaked boar brush and started lathering.
Went on and on till the entire sample was almost empty.

With very thin lather i chucked the entire bit.
Maybe its not my cup to use it.

Took out the pink woolf oceanic blue shave soap and lathered out a good thick creamy face lather in few seconds.

Although I had used good amount of Stirling but no difference on the lather of pink woolf.

My poor Shave experience with Dutchess turned wonderful with Oceanic blue.

Post shave Anherb balm zero feedback.

Hi fellow B&Bers!

SOTD Theme Week with a sports twist this week.

Let’s see some baseballs, football tickets, golf clubs, hockey pucks or anything sports related! Even a pair of your favourite ski gloves or clay pigeons would work!

And if you don’t have anything themed… post pics of your shave or just tell us about it!

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

All the best in 2022!

The photo was taken a few years ago at a spring training White Sox game. At that time our nephew was a strength and conditioning coach for the White Sox and the minor league team he was at won their series. He and the team received a ring.

On the soap front, I am using a new soap today: Noble Otter Monarch. With the first shave, I did not detect any particular scent. Perhaps that will change after some usage. The lather was excellent and this soap seems to be a good performer. The Feather-Feather combo worked just right. 4th use of the blade. A perfect BBS shave. Have a good week, B&Bers.
