Shave of the Day Thread - 2019

May 22, 2016

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: Paladin Lotus Select Badger
Soap: Palmolive Classic (Euro)
Razor: ATT SE1/UFO Tornado
Blade: Schick P30 (1)
Post: Thursday Plantation Tea Tree & Witch Hazel, CRSW Alcohol-Free American Barbershop Moisturising Aftershave
Scent: APR Festivus

My very first shave with the famed Palmolive (Euro). We get a version of this soap in Oz, but everyone tells me it is rubbish.
The scent is identical to the Palmolive cream, but the lather is better. In fact, very good indeed. The only small criticism I would make is that it fell a bit short on slickness on my against the grain vertical neck pass. However, I very much consider this praising the Palmolive with faint damnation!
Three passes and a clean-up for a BBS result.
And a big thanks to @Mark1966 for the PIF :).

I thought Fred Flintstone was tough enough to shave with the R6 instead of using the clamshell sissy easy peasy shave, come on Fred you’ve got a hard rock fat belly ready to used the R6.
I have used the R6 a few time, very good for a two pass shave. Much better than the clam shell. :LOL:

Really lovely shave this morning. The wife took the two rugrats out shopping, meaning I was able to spend time properly prepping. I only needed one pass to get a really decent shave, with only minor whiskers left on my neck. I finished off with some Thayers Witch Hazel and Proraso after shave cream. Overall, a very relaxing, chilled out session.

It is weird I don't see much of sudsy on the forums I post. This soap is very nice and the scent is pretty cool (not sure about Sudsy non CL scents, how they may be, this one is very nice)

Pre-shave: Hot Shower
Brush: @Tony Forsyth P&C LE Platypus brush
Soap/Cream: Squadron Soap Coronet Fougère shaving soap
Razor: Vintage Ever-Ready Heavy Flat Top SE razor
Blade: GEM SE blade (1)
Post-shave: Squadron Soap Coronet Fougère splash
Fragrance: N/A

Been a while (too long?) since I used a SE razor. They do require a little change in technique but it is very simple and easy to pick up. Great result too!

The Ever-Ready Heavy Flat Top is the British made equivalent of the Gem Heavy Flat Top, commonly called the 'G-bar' because of the 'G' in a circle on the side of the handle. Despite having no equivalent marking the Ever-Ready is often called the 'E-bar'.

In any case, a lovely looking, and shaving, razor!
