I know the time spirit is changing rapidly so Christmas is also subject to strong inflation with its open furniture boulevards and supermarkets.
However, there are those old fossils that still appreciate these days as yours truly is.
So when Advent time starts there is the start of this pleasant period and also the shaving soaps that have some relation with this time should appear.
And to get in the mood right away, the Stirling Christmas Eve opened the Advent period.
And a free tip for those who love classical music tonight on ZDF at 18.00 hours a fantastic Advent concert to see from Dresden.
Razor: Merkur Progress
Soap: Boellis Panama Daytona
Brush: RazoRock Barber 24mm
Aftershave: 4711 Portugal Skin Milk
It is the very first time, i've used a product from Boellis Panama. Heared a lot of good things about their products. Yesterday this Soap came in.
It's a fruity, orange like scent with light undertones of wood. The description says Patchouli, but i am not able to detect this.
The lather was very easy to build and it was stable, had plenty of cushion and the bathroom was filled with this elegant scent.
Another product which i haven't used yet, was the Sputnik blade. What a fine Blade this is. Almost as sharp like a Feather, without having this "agressive" sharpness on the first shave. Very smooth and gentle.
The first pass, with the grain, on setting 3, across the grain on setting 2 and against the grain on setting 1. Very nice. I like this combo so far.
After the shave, my Alum Block told me, that it has been a good shave. Only the minimum of stinging, just as it should be.
At last, i used my 4711 Portugal Skin Milk, which complemented the soap very nicely.
Now we go to the "Christkindel Markt" to get this beautiful atmosphere.
Have a great time, stay healthy and enjoy your shaves.
2 rounds and touch ups, BBS. I finally have the correct angle for the Charcoal, and when you have, its bloody effective, it gives a very nice shave! The Yaqi is a winner, real soft silk like brush with just enough backbone to function as wanted. The Monarch, still my nr1 soap, it is a feast to use it, the smell is intoxicating, real good, and really heady!
