(Face & Head Shave)

New Shave set up to start the weekend...the Proraso Blue cream which I haven't used for a while created a nice creamy slick protective lather with only a small amount in a short space of time. The residual slickness from this cream is excellent leaving a superb post-shave from the addition of the aloe vera and vitamin E making my mature rhino skin feeling soft & moisturized. Ideal for the Autumn/Winter elements.

An enjoyable comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a generous splash of Brut Attraction Totale ASL.

My face & precious swede are both feeling smooth and smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.😎

This is the second shave with the Feather AS-D2 razor with a Feather blade. The AS-D2 is the only razor I use a Feather blade in. For me, the Feather /Feather combination works. Today’s brush is a Paladin El Dorado. This is one of my favorite brushes. The MdC is near the end of its life. A nice, BBS shave. Have a great day and weekend, folks.

DE SOTD, Saturday, November 18th, 2023

Razor : Yaqi TFC adjustable.- Mfg 2021>, all ranges. Interesting design that is similar to the Gibbs 1930's design but does not use proprietary blades like the Gibbs did. The razor is mostly blade exposure forward and is able to pick up low lying flat hairs with their scallop Safety bar design. Had a close comfortable shave this morning.
Blade : Gillette 7 oClock SP(3) sharp and smooth with reasonable longevity.
Soap : Ach Brito Lavanda cream, nice mild bright lavender with a touch of mint scent to my nose with excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi "Lucky Casino's" 26mm Timber wolf synthetic. Excellent lather generator, heavenly, luxury, cloud like soft tips + 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 Lavanda with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 9.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + 2 tiny chin weepers=
excellent shave with my Yaqi TFC adjustable with a Gillette 7 oClock SP blade.
