(Face & Head Shave)

A new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend.

Everything in the shave set up this morning worked together wonderfully. The Parker Variant/Treet Dura Sharp is a great duo slicing through my face & head stubble with effortless ease.

The Nivea Men Body Shaving Stick provided a cushioned protective slick lather leaving a superb post shave feel.

Another close comfortable efficient combined face & head shave with no errors to report.

Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.

My face & precious swede are feeling smooth and smelling divine.;)

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

Face wash with Cera Ve Face Soap
Haslinger Sandelholz Rasierseife Beruhigend (tallow formula)
Paladin Lotus
Captains Choice Copper & Old Spice Shaving Mug
Timeless SS SB .68
Personna Medical Prep
Thayers WH & Proraso ASB
Beverly Hills Polo Club
This is the fifth shave with the Timeless razor and Personna Medical Prep blade. The shave was close and smooth. Normally, I switch razor blades after three or four shaves. However, with the Timeless .68, I can get more than four shaves. The Paladin Lotus has the size and feel that I like. It loads soap easily and gives me plenty of lather. This was the 40th day I used the Haslinger soap. The result was a nice, smooth, BBS shave. Have a wonderful day, folks.

Cloudy and intermittent showers here as usual, temperature around 15°C.

Today I used: My favourite Gillette Tech with a Feather blade (2). New tube of Proraso Rinfrescante and matching aftershave.
The fantastic Semogue Mistura brush, and not pictured but ever present, the bottle of Thayers Unscented.


Happy shaves! 🙂
