Hello from Germany,
I'm shaving my face only every other day...so my setup from yesterday (Monday) evening:
I Had a nice smooth shave with:
Razor: A white bakelite slant I recently purchased at e-bay...really a nice and gentle toy...
Blade: Astra Super Platinum
Brush: Frank Shaving in finest badger quality, 24 mm knot and really smooth
Soap: Dutch "Vergulde Hand" Stick, gives a rich and soft lather, lathered directly on the face
AS: A classical East german AS, "TÜFF sensitiv", little alcohol and a lot of herbal essences, kind of a secret tip in the german DE scene.
Was really relaxing after a busy working day.
Best wishes from Germany, and always a sharp blade in the razor...
