Post/After-shave: Cocoa Butter and night cream mix to keep my allure Fragrance:- Lacoste
When I first started DE shaving I bought products from the High Street which included packs of Wilkinson blades, it is now time to use them up because they are just too mild, going to pair them with a Parker 96R which is medium to aggressive and see how that works. 6 blades left so not too bad.
Prep: Warm shower / Original Source ~ Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.
Cold wet flannel to my face.
Wilko ~ Men's Face Wash + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
Brush: Chinese Unbranded Horsehair.
Soap : Proraso ~ Sandalwood.
Blade: Indian Gillette Wilkinson Sword ~ Saloon Pack. (1)
Razor: Merkur~ 37c.
Cold Water Face Rinse./Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint eucalyptus, Tea Tree , lemon essential Oils + menthol crystals Witch Hazel Mixture./ Proraso ~ Sandalwood ASL.
L'0REAL ~ Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.
A new shave set up to start the weekend...Carrying on using my slant razors.
The 37c was the first slant razor that i bought a few months after i introduced myself to traditional wet shaving i was slightly hesitant on my maiden shave with this german Fräulein but was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't aggressive but smooth was compared to my much loved merkur 34c & muhle r89...
After a while getting familiar with the 37c i went on a impulsive buying bought and purchased it's bigger powerhouse sibling the 39c which i find slightly more aggressive purely because of the weight difference from the longer handle.
Both razors are a joy to shave with and will always be firm favourites of mine.
The indian GWS is a great match for the 37c making a smooth efficient duo.
A enjoyable 3 pass +pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.
Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of L'0REAL ~ Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.
My face is feeling super smooth and smelling divine.
Stay safe and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.
I used this soap from Fitjar a couple of days ago for the first time, so I thought I would use it again today to get a better feel for it.
As with the first use, it exploded into a thick luxurious lather with little effort and it was as slick as a Texas puddle, it also has a wonderful pine and juniper scent.
I'm liking this soap a lot!
The ATT Windsor CM1 is the mildest razor in the range but performed very well especially when fitted with a Souplex blade, I find these blades to be as sharp as a Feather blade but not at all rough on its first use as can sometimes be the case with the Feather .
A close and comfortable shave was had leaving me with baby smooth skin, perfect!
To finish off my shave I splashed on the Fern Coiogne which went well with the pine and juniper scented Fitjar soap.
I wish you all a fab weekend whatever you are doing, just stay safe while doing it!
