Brush and soap:
Shavemac Silvertip D01 2 band bulb 24 mm x 50 mm Jungle Moss and Martin de Candre Rose:
Still not convinced, but still a nice ritual to go with it, so the Noxzema Protective Shave smeared for a good shave. My skin doesn't get any better and keep having doubts about its usefulness, but at least it feels nice and fresh. Due to a mailing from BdF, the Martin de Candre Rose passed by again and decided to buy a box of Rose. Got still a bit in stock of a sample from a shaving friend. I used this one this morning to convince me of the right decision and that was good! With the Shavemac Silvertip D01 2 band bulb 24 mm x 50 mm Jungle Moss the Martin de Candre Rose beaten to a lush foam and the bathroom transformed in no time into a rosary in full bloom, at least the smell. Nice fragrant fat rose foam on the head!
Blade and razor:
The Astra Superior Platinium for the 4th time used. The Astra Superior Platinium could reduce the foam again including the beard hairs. That works fine with a nice smooth result. The Gillette New Made in England is such a simple, but highly effective razor, in which the Astra Superior Platinium shows its full advantage. Shaving 3 rounds without nonsense. Result BBS.
Finally: the roses are sprinkled with PeReJa Rose edc, polished with Naturlife Krem Vazelin Gül Ve Aloevera Özlü and finally the fragrance is deepened with a puff Rose Fernelle Provence et Nature Edt. Can stand another day.

I handstropped the treet blade. That seems to prolong lifeblade. The fourth shave was still good enough. I think the fifth isn't possible so moved it to the blade bank.

For the menthol cooling epsilon blue as and Wilkinson hydro.

Brush and soap:
J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm and Dusy Kabinett:
Somewhere on a forum I read that a guy thought the MdC Rose smelled like the Dusy Kabinett and of course it had to be tried right away. Not at all untrue, but there really is a big difference. With the J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm a nice foam knocked off the Dusy Kabinett. The smell comes in the direction of MdC, but not nearly as powerful and deep. Very nice, but still. The foam of the MdC is fatter. The foam of the Dusy is certainly also good, but just a bit less crèmeux. With my stock of Klar, Dusy and now a new jar of MdC on the way and also half a jar of Vulvix Old English Rose I'll get a few more years! Anyway, this morning again a nice smell of roses, woman happy, so also some moonshine. Good start again.
Blade and razor:
The Astra Superior Platinium for the 5th time used.
Astra Superior Platinium was fine again, nicely shaved. Must say that the blade is starting to feel a bit raw. Remains good cut, however. In the Ikon X3 you don't notice much of the Astra Superior Platinium, because this razor is very tame for a slant. It looks like the blades are just a bit too much in there. So this is a nicely forgiving combi, which demands the attention to shave smooth with it, which does work. That then again.
Result: BBS.
Finally: For the rose scent and moonshine a little bit splashed and smeared with PeReJa Rose edc, Naturlife Krem Vazelin Gül Ve Aloevera Özlü and Rose Fernelle Provence et Nature Edt.

I did not post last weeks due to my moving between houses. Now I have found my straight razors again and used this morning Schulze #14.

Now struggling with assembling a new cupboard from Lidl and that is not recommendable. I have to put screwdrivers where they don’t fit and the result is too small( even for me)
