SOTD - Saturday June 11, 2022 - B-Pure Shave Soap Puck Debut


King C. Gillette
Blade: Kai (2)
Brush: Omega 10049 Boar Brush
Pre-Shave: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar
Soap: B-Pure Shave Soap Puck
Aqua Velva Ice Sport A/S, Nivea Maximum Hydration Post Shave Balm
Growth: 48 hours
Passes: WTG, XTG, ATG
Rating: 9.4/10

Results: Relaxing Saturday afternoon debut shave with the new $1.25 B-Pure Shave Soap Puck from Dollar Tree. Hat tip to Youtuber Matthew Lawrence. It's a good soap that I recommend. Easy to lather with a mild, non offensive scent. 1 out of 10 scent strength. Good performer. In my store, I didn't find it down the shaving aisle, but located on an endcap with more B-Pure branded wet shaving products. It's worth checking out. With 2 days growth, I achieved a DFS result on 3 passes with the mild KCG razor & sharp & smooth Kai blade. No bloodshed. No drama. Overall, a good shave!

A very nice soap indeed with the peppermint scent obvious and refreshing. The lather is just impeccably creamy and slick...
Another vintage razor & blade day. The blade is really something...paired with this razor with an added shim, it provided silky smooth and efficient shaves but still found 2 micro red spots! 3passes for a dfs+ finish. The aftershaves were just terrific combinations for the hot humid weather...
