Today was not a good shave ...
The combination of blade and razor didn't work out today.
Feld a little scratchy and not efficient enough.

J&T® Padoek finest 2-band badger Virginia Sheng,
Castle Forbes Lavender,
Timeless Solid Bar scalloped 0.68,
Personna - Lab Blue 6th x,
L.T. Piver lotion Lavande,
Weleda Aftershave Balsam,
Panier & Sens Lavanda EdT.

Brush and soap:
J&T® Padouk finest 2-band badger Virginia Sheng and Castle Forbes Lavender:
This morning Lavender was on the program, so the J&T® Padoek finest 2-band badger Virginia Sheng firmly loaded with Castle Forbes Lavender. This soft soap delivers a nice firm, well shaving foam with a scent that stays well in the foam. Tasty stuff.
Blade and razor:
The Personna - Lab Blue for the 6th x used.
The Personna - Lab Blue goes well. I notice, that since I also shave my skull daily, the blades are a bit earlier at the end, but these blades help to keep the average number of shaves per blade high. In the past, I've always been very fond of ultra effective combos. The Timeless Solid Bar scalloped 0.68 with the Personna - Lab Blue doesn't fall into that category. It does shave very smooth and comfortable, but at the same time very forgiving. So irritation-free smooth.
Result: BBS.
Finally: Further the whole thing finished with a splash of Rebul Lavender, L.T. Piver lotion Lavande because of the nice smell and the odd one out in this is Weleda Aftershave Balsam, because it is based on honeysuckle, but fits almost everywhere. With the Panier & Sens Lavanda EdT the smell is firmly anchored. I feel Provençal again.

Very nourishing soap. I really like CBL.
Gillette Old Types have never attracted me: I just don't like the looks. This one was a gift, and now I find out they shave terrific.

'Sumptuous sunday

Prep
M-keramiek scuttle
Haslinger schafsmilch
J&T badger
Heljestrand frameback
Vdh alum
Dickinsons witch hazel
Tüff herb, Wilkinson hydro

I further honed the heljestrand just as @Kamp did. I was rewarded with a good shave. It shows it is not the price of the products, but the quality of the shave. So it is still 'sumptuous sunday'.

Vintage shave again today. Used the Tabac soapstick from the late fifties, early sixties today. Cut off a little slice off the top and put it in a bowl. Lathering was effortless. Great Tabac smell, yet a little different than the cream I used a few days ago. A whiff of smoke rises up from the bowl. Less strong scented than the cream. Wouldn’t be strange after all these years.

J&T® Marble Wood APShaveCo SynBad,
Musgo Real classic soap,
Mühle R41 (2011),
Personna - Lab Blue 7th x,
Musgo Real classic AS,
Musgo Real classic ASB,
.
SOTD_20200420.jpg

Brush and soap:
J&T® Marble Wood APShaveCo SynBad and Musgo Real classic soap:
How beautiful and easy can it be? Foam the Musgo Real classic soap with the J&T® Marble Wood APShaveCo SynBad. Do you have the most delicious foam that you can wish for, that shaves like a charm.
Blade and razor:
The Personna - Lab Blue for the 7th x used.
Then a top blade for me, the Personna - Lab Blue, who gets my average at ease. In the absolutely overly effective Mühle R41 (2011) this Personna - Lab Blue still does its job, but requires the necessary attention after which I am absolutely smooth all around.
Result: BBS.
Finally: the whole is taken care of with Musgo Real classic AS and Musgo Real classic ASB. Tasty, there is no need for another box, bottle or tub!
