Sunday: Dedicated to Dmitry!

Turkish Horsehair
Dovo Bismarck 5/8
D'l'ya Br'it'ya SS
Tet-a-tet AS Balsam
Barbon AS
Big kisses from my beautiful wife and daughter!

Because my dear friend Dmitry in Russia, who gave me so much inspiration to use my Dovo Bismarck again, I decided to name this shaving day in honor of him. It was he who sent me this great shaving soap which lathers so beautifully and has such a nice scent and great skincare, and the great Tet-a-tet stuff which I love so much. My wife could not believe how BBS I got - she said "sweetie, that's better than a barber could shave you!" I think it took me almost 45 minutes to do it between the hot towels and other pre-shave preparations like the facial massage I give myself to feel relaxed before I begin lathering up. I started with a WTG pass everywhere, and then my second pass was WTG again, and finally I rinsed off, relathered again and I did a slow, light ATG pass which ensured a table-top smoothness that I haven't had all week. Afterwards, a cold water rinse, a little Tet-a-tet balsam, and a good splash of Barbon completed the most wonderful shave I've had in a long time!

Pre shave - Hot Towel, Palmolive Shave Stick
Razor - Weber ARC
Blade - Astra S/S
Brush - New Forest Tubby 1 Finest
Soap - RazoRock Mudder Focker
Cold Rinse/ Witch Hazel/ RazoRock Aftershave Wax

The N/F Finest is a tidy little brush, especially with the Mudder Focker... but my face is suffering...maybe the S/S is a little too aggressive for the Weber.. I think the S/P is more suited to it. :-/

Second shave with Cadet OC head. Today with UFO Godzilla handle, 105 gr weight, 131 gr weight complete razor. Super Iridium blade in first use. Same impressions than yesterday. Good shave, without irritation nor blood, but there are others heads softer, like the Gillette NEW or the Old Type. However, it is a head that gives a very good performance, for those who like to feel the blade on the skin. The price is right considering the level of finish.

Answer to yesterday's thread is now closed, for Johnny

Quote:RE: SOTD: September 2nd Thru September 8th, 2012
Good doctor, tell me about those two Myrsol products.
Johnny -

Dear friend. These products are from Myrsol laboratory in my city, Barcelona, Spain. They are many years old and are great.
The Emulsion is a product that serves to pre-shave and after-shave, shaving without soap even though I have not tested this use. It has a slight minty flavor and old. Leaves skin well protected.
Agua Balsamica is an alcoholic aftershave scented with Mediterranean herbs, rosemary, thyme and lavender. It's delicious.
The art-deco bottles are another interesting point. Myrsol has registered the same way.
If you have not tried it, do not miss the opportunity, or you will regret it.
Hope it helps.
