Hello B&Bers!

This week’s SOTD Theme is “Travel”.

It is cold in Canada and I am sick of winter, snow and the February blahs. I need a vacation! So for this week, let’s revisit vacation or travel with our SOTD images.

Are you currently in Mexico with your travel shaving setup? Did you buy a fancy shaving soap in London, England or a snazzy fragrance in Paris? Anyone out there actually buy blades in Israel, Egypt or India? Show us!

We want to see your travel soaps, razors, aftershaves, fragrances and any other shaving accessories that you take on business travel or vacation. Also anything shaving related (or not) that you bought while travelling. Show us and/or tell us all about what you use or have bought while away.

No travel related shaving items? How about a pic of your daily shave with a carved coconut you bought in the Dominican or a Mexican sombrero? The obscure bottle of tequila you bought in Playa del Carmen works too. Or just post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us all about it. Let’s see lots of Travel themed posts this week!

As always, the weekly themes are just a suggestion, but being creative and having fun IS mandatory. We encourage you to post or shoot photos of your Shave Gear of the Day regardless of the theme as sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory but encouraged.

Let’s see your travel SOTD!

I am continuing my journey using MdC. Today is the 16th day in a row and I have not made a dent in the soap. The lather of this soap continues to please me, It is so rich and slick. The Karve razor continues to do a good job. At one time I had this razor on the BST but it didn’t have any takers. I am glad it didn’t sell since it is doing a superior job for me. The Karve – Wizament combo worked flawlessly. This is the third day for the razor/blade combo. A great shave. Have a wonderful day and week, BandBers.

This soap is just awesome. Lightly scented with a good quality lather...whip up easily by the excellent brush, perfect for an SR shave! This razor's edge feels buttery smooth and crisp after some laps on the travel 0.1um balsa followed by the Kanayama.

Hello friends!

Last night I watched the 4th episode of The Last of Us. Thankfully, the world hasn't ended yet and I was able to get a wonderful shave this morning.

This was my first time with the RR Don Marco which has a light citrus scent and protection. Wisely, I used White Proraso Pre Shave Cream to face (no pun intended) R41 and Feather. The Jade is getting softer and completely got rid of the unpleasant smell.

Good week and great shaves!

Have some great shaves!
If my traveling was mostly staying in one place I might take this brush. Makes a good lather and it’s small. But since it’s boar it takes a while to dry. I wouldn’t want to shave and then have to pack it away every day.

Razor: Gem Micromatic Open Comb
Blade: Gem SS PTFE (20)
Brush: Ever Ready 100
Pre-shave: Pacific Caffeinated
Soap: Stirling Baker Street
Aftershave: Witch Hazel - Brut
