RazorGuy Shave!

It passed too much time since I last made a shaving soap. Simply too much time and I regret that. Yesterday I took my pots and scales back to work and made a new shaving soap. I modified and improved a very old recipe of mine - in my opinion, the best I ever made at those times - and the result amazed me immensely. The soap performs the way I wanted it to be: creamy, thick, velvety, with a moisturizing effect on the skin, last but not the least, easing the razor's sliding on the skin. I am very happy with the soap I made and, although I am thinking about changing something in the recipe and making technique, I got an incredible smooth and comfortable shave. For the occasion - and this was a special occasion - I wanted to use the very best, the most beautiful and exclusive razor I have in my collection: Mastro Livi CarboInox Snake Razor and I guess I could not make a better choice. An incredible razor, giving the very best shave and, by the way, a great soap supported by my pre-shave oil and my Thyrrenus after shave. A superb RazorGuy shave!
  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil

Sunday morning:

TBS Maca Root cream
Omega 80097 brush
EJ DE89L razor
Gillette Silver Blue blade
M&L Florida Water

The last day of the TBS cream before I switch to something different on Monday. The Maca Root cream is one of my favorites. It compares very favorably to the other creams in my rotation. The scent may not be as memorable as some others but the performance is top notch. This cream will be replaced when it runs out.
Best regards,

Basil
