Hello B&Bers!

This week’s SOTD Theme is “Unknown Gems”.

We want to see your unknown or little known shaving gear that you think should receive more attention. Show us and tell us all about what you use and like that should be better known on B&B. Soaps, aftershaves, razors, blades, brushes and any other wetshaving accessories. Regional items that aren’t widely available are also encouraged!

We want to see pics that include your more obscure shaving items!

Nothing SE themed? Please still post a pic of your usual shaving setups. Or post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us all about it. Let’s see lots of 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 Unknown Gems!

Starting the week off with the same razor that I used last week: my UK Aristocrat with a Personna Medical Prep blade (second shave). This razor/blade combo works nicely for me. The Yaqi is my largest synthetic brush and one I like using. The MdC soap is on its 219th use. Forty more shaves and I will exceed the last time I “3017 ed” the MdC soap. A nice, comfortable shave. Have a great day and week, folks.

MdC Monday

My dear MdC!

How I missed you this month that you were away. But today, on this winter day that seems more like summer, you returned to me. How nice to smell your aromatic fougère. To have back your generous lather and your care for my skin (although there, others treat me even better…). Together with your friends Semogue SOC Mistura, FOCS and Gillette Nacet (5), you were fantastic. And when Brut and Paco Rabanne arrived, then. What an unforgettable day…

MdC Fougère, you are My One and Only Love!
