A new shave set up to start the weekend...

The Haslinger soap is another soap i shamefully haven't added to my soap rotation for a while.The soap is a magnificent performer with only a slight clean pleasant fragrance 'to my nose' the vast majority of shaving soap scents disappeared once i rinsed my face with cold water..The schafmilch sheep milk soap reminds me of MWF, Kent, + which all contain lanolin what i instantly liked about it was, it lathered up in no time without the addition of blooming creating a wonderful luxurious slick protective lather leaving a superb post shave feeling to my face.I have a new shaving soap that ive yet to try out Lanolin Wool Fat, with cedarwood and patchouli essential oils shaving Soap from Natural skincare products Hampshire UK, that i bought from Ebay as a pre-birthday gift to myself ,the ingredients & texture are very similar to MWF/Kent. I'll add it in next weeks SOTD set ups and do a maiden shave with it.

Everything in the shave set worked together superbly.

A comfortably smooth 3 pass + pick ups BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of L'0REAL ~ Soothing Birch Sap PSB.

My face is feeling super smooth and smelling devine.😉

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