Face Lather.

Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse./ Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Brut ASL + Splash-On Lotion/ Nivea Men Fresh Moisturising Gel./Milton Lloyd America Night EdT.

Relaxing Sunday morning shave,

Everything in the shave set up this morning worked together wonderfully.

The Featherweight is easy to hold the shaving angle manoeuvrable, and well balanced considering it's a lot lighter than my Gem Micromatic OC, and other SE razors, but the weight doesn't hinder the shaving performance in any shape or form....It's all down to good technique & shaving confidence.

Another enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a few small squirts of Milton Lloyd America Night EdT to the chest & pulse points.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.

Stay safe, and enjoy your Sunday ladies & gentlemen.

Sunday Schick shave, June 25th 2022

Razor : Schick injector i2 with hydro magic- Mfg 1954-57, excellent tame mid range, well designed and easy to clean. One of my favourite Schick injectors but it still needs a light touch for those carefree shaves we all like.
Blade : Personna SS PTFE (4) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
Soap : Yaqi Musketeer rapier, excellent unique scent with excellent lather qualities. Designed for Yaqi by Master Soup creation S.A.
Brush : Yaqi Atlantis 24mm synthetic, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice scrubber + great lather painter. Not sure how they got all that stuff in the handle but I like the brush a lot.
Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.

I used my favorite combo today: Tabac tallow soap stick + Speick Men aftershave. I usually save this combination for a Sunday shave. The combination gives me the most awesome face feel. I bought both of these products September 29, 2021 from Smallflower, and that was because they still had the tallow Tabac, and I wanted to try it before there was none left. It became my favorite, slightly edging out MWF, which now holds the number two position.

1967 Gillette Slim Adjustable razor
Wilkinson Sword razor blade (31)
Speick aftershave
