Monday shave:


Mitchells Wool Fat shaving soap "facelathered" + Vie&Long 16910 "two bands edition" + Merkur Slant with Croma + Aqua Velva with Herbíssimo balm

Some people said that MWF soap is difficult to lather... but if you pass it through your beard and then lather with a wet brush, you will get without problem tons of quality foam! Just look all the foam I got AFTER the first pass (I got enough for two more passes although this brush is quite small):


About the shave, it was pretty well although these Croma blades don't seem very sharp even using a Slant.

Friodur | XPec | Thäter Bulb | Sabon | XPec

Sometimes your shave is just so "routine" that it takes you by surprise. The XPec just exploded in rich, creamy, protective lather. The Friodur was a velvet squeegee, and I was left BBS before I realized it. The weekend's stubble just seemed to disappear... Well, it's a grew way to start a Monday, let me tell you that!

A BBS shave this morning with no major issues to report but I don't know what is with me and Arlington...I know it's supposed to be a fantastic soap and trust me, I really want to like it but I think I'm giving up. The lather IMO is just ok, it is slick but don't find it as protective as MWF, P160, Cella, La Toja, etc...of course YMMV. Have a good day gents!
