I think many of us agree that Celestino Is a leading member of our community and a gent. One of the things I like about Celestino (bearing in mind I have never met the man) is his loyalty to his shaving set up. His love of MW soaps and Unrefined Shea butter has obviously served him well and many of us too after taking his advice. As a brief show of respect to all Celestino has done for this community and to improve/protect our skin during these colder times I invite you to make the first shave of February a Celestino shave using Mystic Waters soap and finished with unrefined Shea butter. I will extend this for the first week of February and your more than welcome to join me.

If your in, then it would be great to see what you plan to use or maybe add something about Celestino?!

Whoah! I read the title to this thread and rather disturbingly thought that Celestine was no longer with us. Glad you're still here my friend!

I'm game. I'm planning to use MW Brown Windsor. Celestino is who made me aware of unrefined shea butter. Now I use it on my face all the time and style my hair with it instead of pomade. Love it! Thanks, Celestino! And of course how can I not say something about Celestino's amazing SOTD photography. Outstanding!

I have MW soaps, in fact I'd been after an excuse to revisit The Green Fairy, but the only butter I have will end up on my toast (breakfast is kind of a post shave routine)...

Well said. Celestino is a great guy and a pleasure to talk with. I'm in. My Feb shave will consist of Pogio de pini followed by the Shea Butter. It was Celestino description of the scent and recommendation of it that led to me purchasing it. . He couldn't have been more right about it. Instantly became one of my favorites after the first use. Not sure if I ever thanked him on it so Celestino, thank you my friend. Thumbsup

If we are having a Celestino shave day it seems like we all need to use Mystic Waters Bay Rum, am I right!?!?  Seriously though, who doesn't love Celestino?  He's a great guy!

Here here. His beautiful pictures set a high standard for the rest of us. It was Celestino's posts on the benefits of unrefined shea butter that prompted me to try it. I've been using it ever since, after every shave. I will be using my MW soaps and unrefined shea butter the first week in Feb. Thank you my friend. Smile

Oh, good. An excuse to buy some soap I don't need. Very, very tempting this well-deserved tribute. I might have to yield to temptation.

I'm def in on this one. I have a pound of raw organic unrefined shea butter left at home.

To show his dedication to MW soaps when I used MW in my shave of the day (after a long period of not using) I got a message from him asking how the shave was and if I had any issues with it. That's the kind of man he is. Always wanting to help in any way possible.

I would b honored to do this for the first week.

I just wished I had some bergamot and vetiver EO to finish the shave off with!

Count me in. Definitely one of the best of our bunch. I only wish I had one of those translucent 7 brushes for my SOTD.....I'll either use Frankincense & Myrrh or Lilac.
