Razor: Fatip Piccolo
Blade: Astra SP (4)
Brush: Omega 10098
Cream and A/S: Proraso green
Cologne: Mont St Michel naturelle classique

A little bit of summer freshness during the winter. Proraso green needs no introduction. I added a spritz of Mont St Michel (decanted into an atomizer) to the Proraso A/S. The Mont St Michel is a summery Orangey citrus with a good dose of rosemary.

Face wash with Cera Ve Face Soap
Haslinger Sandelholz Rasierseife Beruhigend (tallow formula)
Simpson Chubby 2
Captains Choice Copper & Old Spice Shaving Mug
Timeless SS SB .68
Personna Medical Prep
Thayers WH & Every Man Jack ASB
Mont Blanc
This is the fourth shave with the Timeless razor and Personna Medical Prep blade. It was another good shave: close and smooth. Most likely I will use the same combination of razor and blade on Saturday. The Simpson Chubby 2 is the second Simpson brush I bought. The first was a Duke 3 and since I prefer larger brushes, I added the Chubby to my stash. This was the 39th day I used the Haslinger soap. The result was a nice, smooth, BBS shave. Have a wonderful day and weekend, folks.

Fifth use on the Feather FSH blade and I must say it's still very usable.
Overall a Very Good shave result.

Have some great shaves!
June 21, Friday 2024 Summer Equinox shave

Razor: Razorock Game Changer .76P
Blade: Personna Lab Blue (2)
Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat, tallow
Brush: Yaqi 24mm Silvertip badger
Bowl: Captain's Choice Heavyweight copper
Post shave: Barbero alum block, Thayer's Witch Hazel
Aftershave: Pinaud Clubman

This was the first shave with the Game Changer .76P. It's plenty efficient and resulted in a really great shave. Smooth, close and easy.
I'm glad that I finally bought the .76P plate, it's a good addition to the collection.
The Yaqi brush is a favorite, it's a pleasure to use. Together with the MWF, the lather was totally spot on. Easy BBS.
