Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Aqua Velva Musk
Excellent lather from this soap. The scent is beautiful orange...seems like someone just freshly squeeze some. Thick, creamy and enough slickness...
Matching brush is good for the job. Too much lather...even after 4pass there's more...save for another day.
The razor is famous for blade alignment issues but easily fixed and once ok...paired with this blade..wow! What a pleasure! Felt so smooth, so comfortable and yet sharp. Seems like the razor head clamped down quite well.
3+1 multiple direction passes and get a BBS result with 2 unexpected weepers on the chin and lower lip from last atg pass. Superb icy cold water rinse followed by Thayers then Hyaluronic and AV Musk. Rating 9/10. Would have been higher but gotta take points off for weepers.
