SOTD Friday 5/6/2022

Yesterday for my Fatip Friday shave, I combined the 2 least controversial soaps found on B&B, Arko & Williams Mug Shaving Soap. I applied Cremo as a pre shave and then applied the Arko shave stick on my stubble. I loaded my CVS Boar Brush with Williams Mug Soap for about 20 seconds and then proceeded to face lather for 2 minutes before shaving. This old school soap combo, the Great Grande and the sharp & smooth Wizamet delivered a 2 pass BBS result. Great Shave!

Third day in a row with the Mergress and Personna Med combo and another great shave. 58th use of the Ethos soap. This is one nice soap. Four passes on my face and neck and two on my head and the result was a perfect shave. Have a great day, folks.
