Razor RR Game Changer.84 SB
Blade Permasharp Super 1st Use
Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Aqua Velva Musk
Good lather with nice scent, just too mild. Face lathering with brush feels great and the resulting lather was creamy and slick.
3+1 multiple direction passes shave with razor paired with new blade. Initial impression for 3 passes was very good. Felt sharp but yet smooth and comfortable. Felt comfortable around lips area. As always, caught a weeper on the pickup, trying to close a BBS deal. Icy water rinse stopped the weeper easily while Thayers refreshed then Hyaluronic soothed.
Nice lather, razor & blade for a BBS session with 9.5/10 rating.


"Menthol Monday"

Razor: Gillette Slim Adjustable [4]
Blade: Wilkinson Sword India (2)
Brush: Crabtree and Evelyn Pure Badger
Soap: VDH Luxury, Currier & Ives mug
Splash: Barbasol Brisk
Balm: Duke Cannon Ice Cold

I've been stuck on the VDH soap for a minute, it just does a great job for being so cheap and easy to find. To round out the drugstore shave, Barbasol Brisk and DC Ice Cold gave my face a nice hearty chilly finish.

Date:- 31 August 2020

Pre-shave:- Cold Water straight from the tap
Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice
Brush:- Maseto 'Avatar' Tuxedo Synth. 26/54mm knot
Soap/Cream:- Noble Otter ~ Rawr
Razor/Blade:- Merkur 34C / Voskhod #9
Post/After-shave:- T.N. Dickinson Witch Hazel Astringent mixed into the 240ml bottle with Natural Glycerin (20 drops) & Tea Tree Antiseptic (5) / The Stray Whisker Aftershave Balm (Australian made)

A wonderful scent of Noble Otter 'Rawr' great for Spring and maybe Summer season, depending on the strength of the Musk during Summer.

I can smell straight from the tub which is Bergamot, Sweet Orange, Vanilla and Musk, I cannot smell Neroli, Dandelions and Atlas Cedarwood (or Sandalwoods), because, the Bergamot, Sweet Orange and Musk sought of kicking in a bit more during lathering throughout my shaves. I can smell a very soft Vanilla and Cedarwood (kinda like Sandalwoods to my nose), otherwise, a great scent during Spring season.
