Hey Friends,

today i had one of the best shaves,since i started shaving with DE Razors. It was a pure pleasure.

After a hot shower, i started with the following equipment:

-Soap: Tiki Bay Rum
-Brush: Semogue "Barbear Classico Texugo"
-Razor: Merkur 1904 (Open Comb)
-Blade: Personna Lab Blue
-Aftershave: St. Johns Bay Rum

[Image: zhtw3xa9ctzk.jpg]

I can not imagine too many great shaves like this...The Tiki soap has a more "fresh" scent than every other Bay Rum scented shaving item i smelled at. Really great. I had fantastic,yoghurt like lather,which gave my skin great cushion and gliding abilitis. After the shave my skin felt great. In combination with the St. Johns Bay Rum my skin felt like "breathing". Heavenly!!! The Merkur 1904 is one of the mildest razors i used so far. I thought the Giessen & Forsthoff open comb was mild,but the Merkur 1904 is milder and very thoroughly too. As you can read, i had a really wonderful shave.

Today in the evening i am going to a BBQ with a birthday party. That´s how day´s should be more often.

Have a great time and take care of you. Thank´s for reading.

Greetings
Thorsten​

I went back to Coconut Bay today and I was rewarded with another great shave. I also used warm water again. I think I'll use Synergy all week, not to test, because I already love this soap, but to enjoy.

Prep: RR/HTGAM lime menthol
Soap: HTGAM Synergy Coconut Bay
Razor: iKon ShaveCraft 101
Blade: Personna lab blue (3)
AS: Krampert's Finest Acadian Bay Rum

Sunday:

Hot shower followed by two hot towels
Large Horsehair Barbershop
Super Speed/Sharp day 6 (last day)
Stirling Black Ice SS
Anherb AS Conditioner
Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS

Back to my trusty Super Speed which gave me an ultra-BBS shave with so much comfort despite the Sharp blade being pretty well at the end of its longevity. The Black Ice soap is nowhere near as frigidly-cold as the now discontinued Glacial Obsidian, but it's still colder than cold enough. I used to think that their scents were very similar, but now I'm noticing that they're two soaps which smell quite different despite them both having a black licorice scent. The Anherb/Aqua Velva combination is very, very cooling and soothing.
