SOTD: June 2019

Tell us about your SOTD - was it BBS?

Menthol Monday:

Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Astra Green day 2
Stirling Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo SS
Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
B&M Arctique AS Splash
Bleu de Chanel EdP

Because of the surge of hot weather over the weekend I went all-out with the menthol and I used some of my coldest stuff. Even the mentholated pre shave soap from Stirling has a nice cooling effect, and it cleans the skin so thoroughly while softening up the stubble, and it’s very moisturizing. The Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo soap’s magnificent scent filled my bathroom, it gave me tons of rich, slick, beautiful lather, and the menthol sensation was so frigid that it almost felt painful. (in a good way!) The Glacial Unscented balm and the Arctique aftershave gave me such perfect soothing and brought the freeze to another level. This shave was so enjoyable as well as 100% BBS!

With college getting more and more hectic, ive decided that double or triple SOTD posts will be better during the term, especially since i can type them out on the weekends for multiple posts at once.

Shave 1: A fantastic shave with Arko, definitely a first class shave stick performance wise, whether you're a big fan of the scent or not. Fantastic stuff for sure, the omega 49 is absolutely fantastic for face lathering, and it has plenty of backbone!

Razor: Wilkinson sword TTO
Blade: personna lab blue (6)
Brush: omega 49
Soap: Arko shave stick
Aftershave balm: prep

Shave 2: Every shave where i use Uncle Jon's pipe smoke turns out to be a fantastic shave, this stuff is a great performer both in terms of slickness and protection, it easily produces thick creamy lather and has a fantastic scent.

Razor: Wilkinson sword TTO
Blade: personna lab blue (7)
Brush: Omega 49
Soap: Uncle Jon's pipe smoke

Tuesday morning:

Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Astra Green day 3
Brion Sensitive SC
Nip Man ASB
Max Refreshing AS Splash
Bleu de Chanel EdP

No complaints about this shave whatsoever even though it was a bit hurried. This Brion Sensitive cream is from Serbia and it has a very nice minty type of scent with good lather and a bit of a menthol sensation. Its skincare is also excellent. The Nip Man balm’s scent is very similar and it’s very soothing, moisturizing, as well as cooling. The Max Refreshing aftershave from Bulgaria smells great, but it doesn’t interfere with any fragrance and it’s as cold as hell. Two swift passes were enough to get me mega-BBS!

SOTD:
Beautiful shave today, that Wilkinson sword TTO and Wilkinson sword brush that Sav very generously sent in a PIF from the UK are absolutely amazing. I tend to use the Wilkinson sword brush more for bowl lathering and the Omega 49 which Sav also sent for face lathering although thats changing quickly because the omega is also getting used for bowl lathering now. Both are absolutely fantastic brushes in their own ways!
The Wilkinson sword TTO delivers a shave very similar to the vintage gillettes, like the super speed and for someone who uses double edged razors to save money its an absolutely amazing razor, i highly recommend it. I'll use this razor for a month and then do a comparison to both my superspeeds and a 1948 aristocrat.

The palmshave lathered perfectly, provided that you use quite a lot of it so i might be changing scores in certain categories on the review i posted on different shave forums after some more testing.

Razor: Wilkinson sword TTO
Blade: personna lab blue (8)
Brush: Wilkinson sword classic shave premium
Cream: palmshave lime
Aftershave Balm: prepImage

Great ones Jaydee, Thug, Matthewoli98 & RVT

Walbusch B5 / Gillette Minora
Wild West - Mantle / Timberwolf
BunduBeard - Vanilla
Prep

I cracked open a new Minora so grabbed the Walbusch for a second time within a few days and it didn't disappoint.
We had no water yesterday, so I had a two day old growth. A BBS with a two pass shave, WTG and AGT plus the spots where I normally need some touching up. I don't understand why they stopped producing them.

My midweek SOTD:

Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Astra Green day 4
Bielita SC
Prep ASB
Proraso Green AS Splash

My first ever shave with this Bielita cream that I received this past Monday and I think it’s terrific. (Muchísimas gracias Miguel, tú eres tan amable!) Its scent is very nice - it’s sort of flowery but not in a feminine way, it’s a pleasure to lather, and it has a pleasant menthol sensation. The Prep as always gave me wonderful soothing, moisturizing, and cooling. The Proraso Green aftershave is the only item I like from that line because it smells nice and it’s good and cooling. All in all a most enjoyable BBS shave. The Bielita cream is from Belarus, by the way. Excellent stuff!
