Brush and soap:
J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm and Stirling Wintergreen:
As I wanted cool this morning, I started smearing Proraso Crema Pre Barba. Although not very, still nice cooling. Then with the J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm from the Stirling Wintergreen knocked a very refreshing foam. That stuff cools, stimulates and is invigorating! Firmly put the head in the foam.
Blade and razor:
The Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) for the 4th x used. The Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) mounted in the razor and in the meantime a nice cool head! The combination Lutz Slant and Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) is fine. This blade clearly shows the difference between the 2 sides of the Lutz. The side with coarse ribs is more effective than the fine one. Shave both nice and controllable. Excellent!
Result: BBS.
Finally: further chilled with Alcolado Glacial, Prep Skin Protective Cream and Stirling Wintergreen AS. So cool, the tears are piggling over my smooth cheeks! One drawback, my wife hates Wintergreen....

Pumacker Black Diamond 5/8
Scrupleworks Veggie Tanned Horsie .. 40/60
Simpsons Shave Cream
Morris&Forndran Blonde Badger .. Style 1 Size 2
Bloc Osma .. as a proof
Thayer's Witch Hazel .. Rose
Penhaligon's English Fern EdT

A few things of interest today..

This Black Diamond razor was the first straight razor I bought when I was starting out.. $14 on e-bay. It was finished for today's shave on my La Dressante bout in the photo. A very hollowed grind..
The brush is a pre collaboration M&F.. when Lee's Blonde Badger was king of the hill. And, it quite possibly still is!
I'd nearly forgotten just how nice the Simpsons Shave Cream is..

A typical keen and smooth coticule shave... I'm happy!

Alcolado Glacial

The only reason to shave in this heat is that one can do without a fur coat on ones face. The glacial Wintergreen helps to cool down too, and the Alcolado made to cold linger a bit longer.
First shave with this very elegant Le Coq and I must say: I'm impressed!

Brush and soap:
Omega 20102 and TDS "Cream: evergreen juniper":
Not used for a long time, but this morning my big Steve Woodhead shaving bowl filled with cold water, to whip nice fresh foam with the Omega 20102 from the TDS "Cream: evergreen juniper". I thought a cold water shave would be a good idea, so I took a cold bowl for a nice shave. Also the big Omega fits nicely in the Woodhead. So that became cold foam of good quality. The TDS soaps all foam fine, but the smells aren't all my thing. This one does, gives a nice idea of moist fern with the smell of juniper. Just like during a hike on a cool day in the valley of the Mosbeek here in Twente. Nice.
Blade and razor:
The Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) for the 5th x used.
The Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) shaves nicely. Again 5 times and effortlessly. The Paradigm Daimondback also contributes to a nice result with this Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia). I keep a stock of them.
Result: BBS.
Finally: some extra freshness with the Alcolado Glacial. Then I prolonged the feeling of nature with la Riana Rosmarino olive oil shaving butter and Loris E-003 Acqua Di Gio. Take it easy with these hot days!
