Saturday 6th April

Cold Water Shave
Heno de Pravia Glycerine soap
Vitos Pre Shave Cream
Stirling Mountain Man Soap
Frank Shaving STF Synthetic Brush
Star 1912 pattern on a Copper Handle with a GEM SS Blade
Alum and Rinse with Simple Facial Toner
Heno de Pravia Moisturiser
Al-Rehab Silver EDP

A fantastic shave today. The copper handle by Andy ( @les24preludes ) gave the razor both nice heft and balance.
3 passes for another 'Face Feeling Finish'.

My wife is away on a 'girlie' weekend with some former climbing club it is beer and burgers for me for a couple of days. Hope you all enjoy your weekend as much as I am going to!


Old geezer

soap: Barbus Classic top cap broke early on, this replacement from my travel toothpaste starting to fuzz now when maybe 1/4 of cream is left
brush: Omega 49 first outing, got a nice feel to it, except for the smell
razor: Heljestrand MK Nr2 DIY scales in London Plane, smallest blade in my rotation but making the cut no problem

RazoRock Syn.22mm
Vitos Super Red
Gem MicroMatic- brass
Gem S/S [ 3 ]
Floid Vigoroso A/S Lotion

After yesterdays disappointing Shave todays choice of Razor was guaranteed to make up for it. Using the dependable Vitos with the Micromatic was an ideal combination for a good quality Shave. I have found contrary to popular opinion that the MicroMatic once mastered shaves smoothly , and is extremely efficient and without any problems delivers a very satisfying close all finish.

First use of SMN this morning. It's quite a thick cream like AdP and as a face latherer, I need to experiment. Tried adding to the brush, but it's too thick to spread. Rubbing on the face first is preferable with this one. Don't want to use a bowl.
Scent is mild and beautiful, with just the right amount of eucalyptus.
I load it from the tub, like I do with soaps. And I load heavy. When dialled in you get a very dense and extremely slick lather.
