    SOTD: 05/08/17
    SOTD 060817 (2).jpg
    Razor: Gillette Fat Boy (On Loan)
    Blade: Astra SP #2
    Brush: Hans Baier Silvertip 20mm
    Soap: NSS, Moroccan Sands
    Post: Aloe Vera 100% Gel
    Splash: DR Harris Arlington
    Cologne: DR Harris Arlington

    A late night ( Early morning shave before bed this evening but I want to feel fresh.)
    The on loan Gillette is proving to be a favourite of mine. Tonight I dialled the razor to #5 for a 2 pass shave.
    Having used this razor yesterday and in all honesty I did not have much to contend with but we all know if we can get a shave in we will. :) I only needed a 2 pass to bring me back to at least DBS.

    I am a big fan of the Nannies Silly Soap and my first time using the "Moroccan Sands" was a pleasure. Thank you @Rowlers . As always a lovely slick, creamy lather with superb post shave qualities. I may even suggest the scent is better than the Lemon, Basil & Mandarin. :rolleyes:

    Another first with Hans Baier Silvertip. A brush with a little scritch but a lovely back bone. Worked perfectly for face lathering with the rather small tin of the NSS. Thank you @AaronW1983

    Finishing with a gorgeous, fresh lemon filled scent I am ready for bed and the morning.

    Good night everyone and have a lovely weekend.

    Preshave: Hot water rinse + bloom water
    Razor: Souplex OC Travel Razor
    Blade: Perma-sharp Super (1)
    Brush: Body Shop synthetic
    Shave Soap: Wickham 1912 Magnum
    Aftershave Balm: Bulldog Sensitive
    Aftershave Lotion: M&S Harvard

    Typical Wickham soap lather, what more can I say? The best shave yet with this razor. Either I've got the hang of it or the Perma-sharp blades suit it better. One small nick under the chin from a careless stroke, always a tricky area. I rate the result BBS, my wife marked it 8.5-9 out of 10.

    Enjoy the weekend, gents.

    I had an absolutely lovely shave today with Star Noir. It is such a great soap and the scent is really something else.
    I messed up at the end going against the grain with the Tech, it just never works out for me, but its a testament to the soap that I at least tried it again :facepalm:
