SOTD - November 2020
29/11/20
[Image: 1481487299622.jpg]
Pre: Shower
Brush: Simpson Duke 3
Soap: Vitos Extra super
Razor: Focus R48
Blade: 0.5 Med Prep (3)
Post shave: Cold water splash, TC's Infused Witch Hazel
Balm: Barts Balm Lime Balm & Lotion
Aftershave: Hugo Boss Bottled Night

I mixed up a nice "loose" slick lather today as i found the R48 struggles (for me) with a heavy lather.
I completed 3 normal passes and some touch up on the chin and the devils whirlpools, i find this razor is very mild but it works, the angle/technique is totally different from anything else i use. I like the design and the quirkiness.
3 comfortable shaves from a half blade? how long can this Med Prep go on?
A lovely post shave finishing with the Hugo Boss leaving me clean, fresh and very comfortable.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.

Lather Catcher Sunday's Shave
[Image: cws.png]

Cold Water Rinse
L'Occitane Shaving Soap
Jayaruh #206 Two-band Badger
Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher
Personna GEM SS PTFE
CWR
Family Dollar Spice AS

The L'Occitane Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #206 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Family Dollar Spice AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Thank you very much, I always enjoy shaving with it.
If i had to, I believe i could survive with 2 vintage razors, This B1 and a beautiful boxed MicroMatic i have.
Both wonderful shavers. However, thats not what we do on TOST, we need a lot more than that. Wink .

Thankfully we don't have to pick just 2 razors. If I did have to pick the Gem Junior Bar would have to be one of them. I would have to do excessive research and testing to pick the other.

Had an excellent shave this morning with the Gem Junior Parade with a 5th flip Gem SS PTFE. And nearly finished off this tub of Mer Shavings Fougere Orange soap. Love that soap, luckily I have another tub.
