Cold water face & head shave

A new shave set up to start the weekend. which will be a vintage SE razor + frankensoap week.

Starting off with the very efficient gem micromatic o.c. which has taught me the lightest of touch is required when shaving with this efficient SE vintage lady, especially when i do a head shave.

Out of all my SE vintage razor this assertive lady has improved my technique & shaving confidence immensely rewarding me with some sublime comfortable error-free silky smooth shaves.

My first cold water shave of the year was a great wake up call for my face sensors..A great shave.!...I intend to carry on with the cold water shaves for the next month or more.

A smooth invigorating 3 pass + pick ups near BBS cold water face & head shave with non errors to report.

Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of L'0REAL ~ Reinforcing ASB.

My face and precious swede are feeling super smooth and smelling divine.😉

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