Wednesday morning:

Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Shark day 4
Super Max Menthol SC
Prep ASB
Mennen Skin Bracer AS Splash

This Super Max Menthol cream is one of the items I found when I went down to my storage locker to get some blades last week. It’s from Bulgaria and it has a nice, although weird kind of scent but it lathers terrifically. It’s not a face-freezer but you can still feel a decent cooling sensation from it and the postshave care is pretty good. There’s nothing like a nice massage with the Prep and a couple of splashes of the Skin Bracer. I only had time for two passes but I had a great BBS shave nonetheless!

Italian Barber Amici AS Splash

It’s been quite a while since I used the Green Fields soap and I’m really happy that I did. This is a South African treasure with a delightful peppermint scent that fills the bathroom, rich, slick lather, and it’s so cooling that it can easily pass for a menthol soap. Its postshave care is also very comfortable and soothing. As always the Prep gave me a terrific, cooling, soothing, and moisturizing feeling - what a great balm it is. The Amici aftershave from Italian Barber is mildly mentholated and what a beautiful scent it has - even my wife loves it. Three passes made my stubble disappear and left me smooth as a glass table top!


Klink so lekker!

Good evening guys
I had a few questions from afrikaans people of where and with what i started. Even some of my friends that i thought would never be interested in wet shaving. So i did this one yesterday.

My Thursday morning Grand Freeze:

Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Shark day 5
Stirling Glacial Black Cherry SS
Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
Alcolado Glacial Menthol Splash
Aramis EdT

My face is frozen stiff after this ungodly menthol assault (in a good way!) but I enjoyed every minute of it. The mentholated pre-shave soap from Stirling started the ball rolling with its invigorating cooling sensation, it leaves your skin spotlessly clean, it softens up your stubble, and its slickness turns your face into a skating rink. The Glacial Black Cherry soap has such a delightful scent, the lather is so rich as well as easy to work up, and the freeze hits you like ten tons of frigid bricks. The Glacial Unscented balm doesn’t lack menthol either - not only is it as cold as ice, it has such wonderful moisturizing and soothing. The Alcolado Glacial splash froze the daylights out of me. This shave was a three pass BBS work of art!

Morning all, shave of the day: Shave of the day: Vintage slant razor, Feather blade, Brushguy brush, Test soap, Nivea Splash #sotd #wetshaving

Outstanding shave. This old slant razor is very aggressive and needs a light touch. Baby smooth shave.

Have a great day, stay safe and keep on shaving! Image

Friday morning:

Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Shark day 6
Palmira SC
Svoboda ASB
Groom AS Splash
Oscar Pour Lui EdT

I think this Shark blade is starting to lose some of its sharpness because it didn’t take off as much stubble during my first pass as it did earlier in the week. This Palmira cream from Serbia has a lovely old school scent with great lather and it gives great skincare also. The Svoboda balm from Russia has a nice clean, soapy scent, it’s quite mentholated, and is it ever moisturizing as well as soothing. Two passes with some touching up earned me a good BBS shave so I can’t complain!

Have a great weekend!
