Brush and soap:
Omega 20102 and Stirling Wintergreen:
If any shaving soap can destroy a relationship, it's today's! A quick cream step with Proraso Crema Pre Barba and then a nice lather from the Stirling Wintergreen whipped up with the Omega 20102. This brush fits well in the Grail and turns the Wintergreen into a strong lather with a strong fresh scent of old fashioned throat sweets and menthol. You either love it or hate it. I find it delicious and refreshing.
Razor and blade:
Used the Hema Personna for the 3rd time. The Hema Personna stays nice and sharp. The lightweight Phoenix Alpha Ecliptic Slant Ox Blod with this Hema Personna is a precise and beautiful shaving combination. Again, slick and smooth. Result BBS.
Finally, Stirling Wintergreen AS, some conditioning with Abzehk Avocado and then a heavy drop of Stirling Wintergreen AS to keep it smelling and feeling good. It doesn't smell like menthol but has a more intense spicy coolness and the scent is irresistible. When I came out of the bathroom the reaction was 'what have you used again, I won't be going to the bathroom for a while'. Yes, sometimes it is like that.

Yaqi pure badger brush
Haslinger Schafmilch shaving soap
Sedef + treet platinum #1
Leresche OC + treet platinum 4
Proraso alum
TFS witch hazel

First pass with the sedef cleared up a lot. Some minor touch up with te leresche.

I've read that some people can use a Haslinger soap within a month. I'm no frugal loader, but the Haslinger will survive november. I used it a lot last september and previous september. So how much lather these people make I can only wonder.

Omega 10019,

Weleda Aftershave Balsam,
L.T. Piver lotion Lavande.

Brush and soap:
Omega 10019 and Razor Master Erin (Lavender):
The small pig Omega 10019 makes nice lather from the Razor Master Erin (Lavender). Firm full of fragrant lather. Seems like the Razor Master soaps lather better, now that they have matured longer. Could also be the bowl, but I don't want to praise it too much yet.
Blade and razor:
Used the Hema Personna for the 4th time.
The Hema Personna remains just fine. The Blackbird V2 machined finish 85mm handle feels comfortable with this Hema Personna, but towards very effective. Shaves easily nice and smooth, but have to keep the focus here and there, but that is necessary to shave anyway.
Result: BBS.
Finally: floral stuff with PeReJa Lavender edc, Weleda Aftershave Balsam L.T. Piver lotion and Lavande to finish with. That will linger for a while.

Brush and soap:
J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm and Scheermonnik Delfts Wit:
So that was another bomb of lather with the J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm whipped from the Scheermonnik Delfts Wit. Whether I'm making more effort now, or whether the bowl does matter I'm not sure yet, but since I've been using the Grail my lather is thicker and creamier. I think I am paying more attention, but that the bowl also makes a difference. Maybe it is the magic of the beautiful thing, that everything goes just a little better, in any case, nice lather again this morning.
Blade and razor:
Used the Hema Personna for the 5th time.
The Hema Personna met my 5 standard and that with a nice shave and smooth result. In the Paradigm Diamondback, the Hema Personna is comfortable in cut and effective at the same time. Feels like a tame razor, but with the result of an extremely effective tool. After 54 shaves, I am really getting the hang of this razor.
Result: BBS.
Finally: the sweet spicy Delfts Wit combines nicely with the sweetness of the olive and the spiciness of the edp, so Abzehk Olive edc, Abzehk Olive oil cream and Loris E-164 Laura Biagiotti Roma.
Was good again this morning.
