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!
Nice shave Jeff! Always fun to use some new products.

Thanks RVT.

A superb soap but lacking in the strength of the scent.

My Thursday SOTD:

Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Astra Green day 5
Hamol SC
Prep ASB
Alt Innsbruck AS Splash
Chabrawichi 555 Cologne

Forgive me for showing this banged up tube of Hamol - this week I received a beautiful brand new one. This cream is from Syria, of all places and it’s one cracker of a cream. It’s so easy to lather, it smells so nice, and it gives a pleasant cooling sensation along with very good postshave care. I don’t think the Prep and Alt Innsbruck need too much description - they’re both great. The Chabrawichi cologne is from Egypt, and I love its lemony/lavender scent which I find is perfect for the summer or for the tropics. Two easy passes resulted in a perfect BBS shave!

SOTD:
Beautiful shave of the day, i cant resist using arko, its absolutely fantastic stuff.
Perfectly slick lather with plenty of protection and a stick of it lasts forever!
This one has a minimum of 24 uses on it and its barely shorter than it originally was, maybe 2mm or so shorter, so it will definitely last more than 100 uses for sure.

Usually i dont face lather with the Wilkinson sword classic shave brush, but it performed beautifully, definitely a fantastic beginners brush.

Razor: Wilkinson sword TTO
Blade: Personna lab blue (9)
Brush: Wilkinson sword classic shave premium
Soap: Arko shave stick
Aftershave Balm: prepImage

Fantastic shave my boy - I’m so proud of you! :)

We both had old school barbershop shaves. Yours was a Turkish one and mine was a Syrian one. As we say in the Middle East to someone who had a shave or haircut - na’iman! ;)

Nice Matthew

Seeing as you have fallen hard for Arko ,your next treasure hunt should be to find one of those shave stick holders that make an appearance every now an then .
