Shaved for the last time a few weeks/months ago.. There was quite a bit of beard hair that disappeared in a few minutes, and again a baby face as result. (such a wonderful feeling to cut away a bunch of several centimeters in one go)

Gong razor 8/8 .
Uomo Fine Badger 28mm.
St James of London black pepper/lime.
Paco Rabanna Phantom.
Result smooth..
Gentlemen/ladies enjoy the beautiful week to come.

Brush and soap:
J&T® Bamboo Tuxedo Syntheet 24mm and Razor Master Pete (Bay Rum):
Have said it before, I'm starting to appreciate the Razor Master soaps more and more. This morning with the J&T® Bamboo Tuxedo Syntheet 24mm and the Razor Master Pete (Bay Rum) whipped up a fine lather. Nice firm lather that binds a lot of water, making it nice and smooth on the skin. The scent is also pleasant from this Bay Rum, so a good start again.
Blade and razor:
Used the Super-Max Blue Daimond for the 2nd time.
The Super-Max Blue Daimond does its job sufficiently, say good shaving mediocrity. Been used noticeable already this 2nd x. In the Gillette Goodwill (head) the Super-Max Blue Daimond is direct, not really comfortable, but efficient. So fine smooth, but it can be more comfortable.
Result: BBS.
Finally: nicely fragrant in line finished with Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Tütün, Naturlife Krem Vazelin Argan Ve Aloevera Özlü and Pinaud-Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum. I can stand it again this dreary wet day. This will be nice lazy chair, snack drink waiting for it to pass.

Brush and soap:
Plisson Fibre and Haslinger Ringelblume:
The supple Plisson Fibre has little trouble making a good lather from the Haslinger Ringelblume. Nice stuff to shave with. Those Haslinger soaps are just good shaving soaps. Clean scent and good lather.
Blade and razor:
Used the Super-Max Blue Daimond for the 3rd time.
The Super-Max Blue Daimond continues to surprise me. Just a good shave. Smooth with little effort. In the Blackbird V2 machined finish 85mm handle, the Super-Max Blue Daimond is quite usable. Have to be very careful that the shaving angle doesn't get too wide, but then I have a good cut with this combo. Let's see how far I get with this Super-Max.
Result: BBS.
Finally: Abzehk Olive edc, Abzehk Olive oil cream and Loris E-003 Acqua Di Gio combine perfectly with the marigold soap.
Now again not too much looking outside with this bad weather....

Brush and soap:
Oumo Brush SHD G5 26mm and D.R. Harris Lavender:
Lavender and roses are the nicest floral scents for me in soap. So with the Oumo Brush SHD G5 26mm the D.R. Harris Lavender, which is a very fine smelling soft lavender soap, lathering up is again almost a delight. Nice full lather with really the hearty scent of Mediterranean lavender fields. I love it.
Blade and razor:
Used the Super-Max Blue Daimond for the 4th time.
The Super-Max Blue Daimond is noticeably on the way out. Whether it will reach my 5 standard tomorrow, I wonder. If so, he has done a reasonable job. So far the cut is good enough though. In the Gillette Slim adjustable, which I had to set to 8 for the last round to achieve a smooth result, the Super-Max Blue Daimond shaves average. Some touching up here and there. My opinion of Super-max remains unchanged. There are more better, than worse blades compared to Super-Max.
Result: BBS.
Finally: To hold on to my visions of southern lavender fields splashed and smeared with Taris Lavanta Kolonyasi, Kneipp Lotion Lavender and L.T. Piver lotion Lavande. About time to travel to more southern places again!

Brush and soap:
Oumo Brush LE 095/102 / silk HMW gel tip 26 mm and Lodrino Sandalwood:
Oumo Brush LE 095/102 / silk HMW gel tip 26 mm with Lodrino Sandalwood gives a nice full moistened lather. This soap I had received a sample of from Jan Zoethout, who is quite busy with Spanish soaps. This is a pleasant sandalwood. Not an overly fragrant bomb. but a nice scent where cinnamon notes don't come out too strong, which bothers me with some sandalwoods.
Blade and razor:
Used the Super-Max Blue Daimond for the 5th time.
The Super-Max Blue Daimond has disappeared into the piggy bank after 5x. Thought yesterday already that it will not be much more. Super-Max remain for me moderate blades. With this one I shaved quite acceptably, but it is not a blade that I should keep in stock, because they might run out. In the Fatip Piccolo Special Edition (OC) the Super-Max Blue Daimond is still able to get me smooth, but it requires the necessary attention. It's not the razor's fault, as I generally shave fine with it.
Result: DFS.
Finally: nice woody finish with Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Tütün, Proraso Wood and Spice ASB and Loris So Oud. Great shave, but a new blade tomorrow.
