SE SOTD, November 17th 2023

Razor : Yaqi Excalibur AC type with a Milano handle- Mfg 2021>, tame mid range. Simple clamping system for blade, small head parts make it a nimble razor to work the face and very enjoyable + affordable IMO. Had a stellar close comfortable shave this morning.
Blade : Schick proline p 30 50mm (1) - sharp and smooth with reasonable longevity.
Soap : Ach Brito Lavada - nice delightful mild scent of Lavender with a slight mint twist to my nose + excellent lather qualities. One of my favorites.
Brush : Yaqi "Purple haze" 24mm synthetic. Excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter.
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.
Post shave : Ach Brito Lavada with witch hazel+ a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 10 stellar.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=
Had a stellar comfortable close shave this morning with my Yaqi Excalibur SE 50mm + a Yaqi Milano 316SSP handle with a Schick proline blade.
