Brush Yaqi 26mm Lucky Dice Badger
Razor GEM Clog Pruf
Blade GEM Stainless 4th
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Thayers + Hyaluronic + Stirling Haverford Balm
The soap scent strength is good. The scent is...hmmm...cigarish...tobacco leaf? It was creamy and really slick...nice!
The shave with the razor paired with the stropped blade was very smooth and comfortable. 3passes for a bbs to dfs finish without any issues at all. Enjoyable vintage session and good aftershaves. Rating 9.5/10!

12 April, 2021


Brush: H.I.S 25mm synth
Bowl: Captain's Choice Heavy Copper
Lather: Stirling "Island Man" + Dove "Pro Moisture Shave Cream"*
Razor: Hone Type 15
Blade: Astra green
Post: GBS Alum Block
Balm: L'Oreal "Sublime Glow" moisturizer
Frag: Lalique "Encre Noire"
*By itself, the Dove cream is a mediocre
brushless product. But I have this tube of it.
so I added a dollop to my regular Stirling
lather. It helped make for some full bodied,
heavy duty uber lather, largely, I suppose,

due to its high glycerin content.

Make no mistake, Stirling "Island Man" is
great by itself. It's just nice to have found
a use for the Dove slop.

Stay healthy, everyone!
