I was beginning to find the 'Somerset' D3 Best a little too scritchy and uncomfortable, but Mike's Unscented manages to cushion it out really well, yes it really is that good!!... Another BBS shave!! Wink

Turkish Horsehair
Dovo Bismarck 5/8
Agressia Fresh SC
Hega AS
Chabrawichi 555 Cologne

Not even a professional barber with 50 years of experience could have given me a better shave than this - I think I did it absolutely perfectly this morning. 2 hot towels, a good long face massage, then I splashed some more hot water on my face, then I started the lathering process. The Agressia Fresh cream from Bulgaria was sent to me by my man Dmitry. This cream smells classy and nice, what a lather it gives, and the post-shave feeling is great. The only thing I cannot understand is, menthol is listed as an ingredient but it's undetectable either during or after the shave. I love the Hega aftershave so much - not so much for the scent, (it's almost unscented) but for the great skincare it gives.

Have a great Sunday!

Hot shower prep
Razor: Autostrop "VALET"
Soap: ARCO creme
Brush: ARCO "Lider" ( Leader)
Aftershock: none
Splash: TABAC (JADE)

The Arco cream is very smooth, lathers well, and gave my skin protection from the scratchy blade. That "Lider" is a huge brush and very pleasant and smooth from the wrapper with only a soak while i showered. The working ends of the bristles are all split and soft as nice as an old cabinet maker's varnish brush..
The little razor that could. a first for me. I found some NOS blades and dug the wee beasty from my to-do box and cleaned it well. Results: The blade needs some outside the razor honing and stropping. No cuts nor abrasions on my face. A close shave, but not very comfortable.

The fun of trying things makes the day go a bit better and quicker!
