Brush and soap:
Vulfix 404 Grosvenor mixed Badger and Boar Bristle and Le Père Lucièn - le Savon du Barbier:
The basic brush, the Vulfix 404 Grosvenor mixed Badger and Boar Bristle, with super soap, the Le Père Lucièn - le Savon du Barbier, makes a superior foam. What a delicious stuff, tough, fine bubble and greasy foam a benefit on the skin and under the knife.
Once I thought it was quite an investment such a soap, but when I look at the return it is absolutely worth the pennies. The LPL is now used 49 times and of course you can see the contents of the can diminish a bit, but of the 200 gr soap, at least 180 gr is still present. I bought the soap on 24-11-2013, so that's 20 gr in 6 years, so at this rate I still have enough for 54 years and I'm 126... Well and then, knowing that there are still a couple of pots like that, it's time to finish!
Blade and razor:
The Rockwell Razors Swedish Stainless Steel for the 3rd time used.
The Rockwell Razors Swedish Stainless Steel blade glidered deliciously through the creamy LPL foam and felt just a little bit better than average. In the Gillette Fat Boy adjustable, on 4 for the skull and on 7 for the face, this Rockwell Razors Swedish Stainless Steel is good to have for a 3rd turn. The blade remains moderately, but if the other parts are right, the synergy gives just that little bit extra to compensate.
Result: BBS.
Finally: Splashing with the Rebul Lavanda refreshes deliciously, the Weleda Aftershave Balsam is nicely caring and the Loris E-181 Noir Man adds some sultry mysticism. It was an pleasure again.

Brush and soap:
Omega 20102 and BdF Raffinato:
A classic good turn again this morning with the Omega 20102 brush and the BdF Raffinato. I whipped up the soap in my Polish scuttle, because the Raffinato comes out best warm. Then you have such a nice thick fat foam, old-fashioned quality.
Blade and razor:
Used the Rockwell Razors Swedish Stainless Steel for the 4th time.
The Rockwell Razors Swedish Stainless Steel is still doing nicely, but 4x is already starting to feel a bit sufficient. Don't keep finding it a hit. Tomorrow 1 more time, but then it will be piggy bank. The Souplex OC is very basic and leaves it very much on the blade and there the Rockwell Razors Swedish Stainless Steel comes with the buttocks exposed. This is not in favor of the blade.
Result: BBS.
Finally: Nice spicy finish with the Rebul Dark Spice, Mennen Baume Energisant and Loris E-012 Attitude. Absolutely good again.

For the final shave of 2019 I decided to get back to my favorite purchases of this year. So this Brush, soap, razor, blade and After shaves are all purchased in 2019. I was rewarded today with the shave I was hoping for: very close! Have a good last day of the year!

last day of the year. the bbq is simmering already from 5 am. from that time on I sit quietly enjoying a drink, cosiness and warmth from a heater. Pulled pork is on the menu for tonight (if ready in time). Now that the girlfriend and the little one are starting to wake up, I can go to the bathroom without doing anything quietly. The last of the year
  • Wacker jungmeister 15/16.
  • Big silvertip brush.
  • Mama bear campfire.
  • No aftershave since I am in the smoke until tonight ..
Gentlemen I wish you a prosperous and above all a healthier life in 2020
