Brush and soap:
J&T® Bamboo Tuxedo Syntheet 24mm and Haslinger Salbei:
I had read many times about Haslinger Salbei, that it is a pleasantly scented and caring soap. Well, I can now confirm that. With the J&T® Bamboo Tuxedo Syntheet 24mm I foamed up the soap in my stainless steel bowl and that resulted in a perfect lather. Nice and thick, greasy and full of sufficient moisture. Exactly as I expect from Haslinger. Top!
Blade and razor:
Used the Kai Stainless Steel for the 8th time.
The Kai Stainless Steel is still usable, now noticeably lost on sharpness, but still good on cut, so tomorrow another time. Dscosmetic T7 316L SS titanium handle with this Kai Stainless Steel is comfortable and efficient. Nice and easy smooth.
Result: BBS.
Finally: within the products, which I have with me, the PeReJa Lavender edc, Weleda Aftershave Balsam and L.T. Piver lotion Lavande are the most fitting to the Salbei.
All nice and floral again.

Although many like the Personna blades I never shaved comfortable with them, but in the Henson it's a nice blade!

Brush and soap:
Jerusalem Harkos® Fibre and Klar Kabinett:
Travel day today. We are going to Bavaria, so a quick shave. Lathered up roses with the Jeruzalem Harkos® Fibre of the Klar Kabinett. Unsurpassed old-fashioned professional soap. Unfortunately no longer for sale. Fortunately, there is still a pound in my stash.
Blade and razor:
Used the Kai Stainless Steel for the 9th time.
The Kai Stainless Steel can be binned after 9 uses. It could have been used one more time, but it' s enough. The Paradigm Diamondback with the Kai Stainless Steel shaves the whole thing nice and smooth.
Result: BBS.
Finally: The PeReJa Rose edc, Naturlife Krem Vazelin Gül Ve Aloevera Özlü and Provence et Nature Rose Fernelle contributed to the fact that the car smelled quite a bit like roses.
We have now arrived just above Passau and let's see what tomorrow brings.

Nope, although it's first two appearances in the Henson were quite alright, the Personna is not for me ...

Brush and soap:
Omega 20102 and Haslinger Aloe Vera:
Loading the Omega 20102 into the small Haslinger Aloe Vera soap box takes some getting used to. However, this also works out well. Nice lather, but the scent is somewhat disappointing, or rather lacking. Nice lather feeling, but not necessary for me with my elephant skin. That is a matter of using it up or muddling it through the Arko and forgetting about it.
Blade and razor:
Used the Gem Personna Pfte for the 8th time.
The Gem Personna Pfte is starting to feel a little less sharp but still enough cut to not disappear into the Smint box. Me idiots sure combo, you can't cut yourself with it but it definitely removes the beard, Gem G Bar with Gem Personna Pfte, did exactly what you should expect from it. Smooth shave.
Result: BBS.
Finally: on this soap everything fits, so Ilgaz Çesme Limon (Lemon), Weleda Aftershave Balsam and Loris E-164 Laura Biagiotti Roma, which my wife loves.

Ombia classic as, de vergulde hand as balm

Nice shave. The treet black beauty is a polarizing blade. It feels dull, but it gives me a nice shave. There is almost no alum feedback. It isn't the most durable blade. I mostly bin the treet classic and black beauty after 3 or 4 shaves.

The soap makes a perfect lather, and the fragrance is very good - it is there to stay.
The ASB (very old) has lost most, if not all, of its scent - still a good ASB though.
