There are so many threads on shaving, I noticed there's no SOTD thread.

Whaaaa?


Pre: shower & Floid pre-shave oil
Brush: Commodore 3x
Soap: CRSWs "Bois Floraux"
Rzr: Merk 34C
Blade: Supermax "Tiger" Super Platinum (newest discovery of best mixture of sharpness and comfort, for ME)
Post: hot water, cold water, alum, CRSWs "Post-Shave Lotion" same scent, and like a milky balm

Blissed out!

It;s been basicaly the same for almost 40+ years:

Gillette 109 Adjustable TT razor set on #3
Schick DE blades
Williams shave soap ( now in my grandfathers glass mug )
A siver tip Badger brush (just got a new one to replace my old one I'd used for the past 40+ years.)
Nivea Post Shave Balm
Pinaud Bay rum aftershave

I only shave twice a week now that I'm retired. Makes life nice and easy Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Same as nearly every day: Braun electric razor.

No more cuts; nearly zero ingrown hairs.

Am I the only person here who uses a 'lectric?

now I never used to shave often especially after leaving the military it was a novel idea that i no longer "had to" so spent a while looking a bit like a nutty professor.

today i invested in a new electric razor a Braun 9 series 9095cc at almost 220 it was a bit more expensive than i had imagined, but so far I'm very impressed with the quality and the very manliness of the gadgets.. it washes itself in isopropyl alcohol at the end of each shave and gets blow dried automatically while charging inside its station when the razor knows its now clean. plus at possibly most importantly its a damn good shave lol.

so far so good

You're kidding, right?

Electric shavers have changed, evidently!

yup they have evolved a bit since I last got 1.

but yeah all true lol, the "station" accepts the shaver head down, automatically charges the unit/washes and dries the blades at the same time.

have a look online, Braun series 9 9095cc awesome piece of kit

A slight change for me. The usual hardware, but as my Cade puck has run out I grabbed a tub of Taylor of Old Bond Street's sandalwood shave cream from the tobacconist in town. It's nice, producing a thick creamy lather, but I don't like it as much as the L'Occitane Cade. I've noticed I'm getting a few more tiny nicks than I usually do because my razor is occasionally jumping. Rather than having a subtle fragrance, it smells particularly soapy.

An interesting diversion, but at this moment in time it would take some convincing for me to put my hands in my sky rocket for this one again.

My problem was I was always somewhere in-between, which was irrefutable evidence that the state of my beard was not a conscious choice!

OTOH, I shaved last night and it feels so good to wake up feeling clean shaven when you wet-shave. I mean, I was JUST-SHAVED smooth. Throw into the fire than I'm Greek and that's saying something. Basketball
