    Mitchell's Wool Fat advice

    I suffer from allergies, especially to Macca root and Cella in the red tub. Which is sad because I love the lather and scent of Cella. The new Cella bio cream is very skin friendly, and I have nothing but good things to say about M.W.F. A wonderful soap. IMHO.

    What Aftershave did you use today?

    First time using Proraso green lotion, and I love it! Totally different scent from the balm which has more of a eucalyptus scent. Light, fresh and soothing. Wish I'd tried it sooner.

    New stainless DE recommendation?

    My votes for the Karve, I have the brass version and with B,C and D plate.I get some great shaves with the D plate. I'm tempted by the steel but can't justify it. Executive shaving stock it in the UK.

    What Was Your Cream Today?

    Cella extra extra bio. First time using this cream and very impressed. Fresh cologne type scent, rich creamy lather that likes water to bloom properly. All in all a welcome addition to the Cella line and very reasonably priced.
