Razor - Razorock Lupo DLC
Blade - Gillette Nacet
Brush - Simpson's Chubby 2 super

A/S - Noble Otter Two Kings

A+ shave all the way. I needed something closer than what I'd been getting with the Heritage so I went back to the Lupo, and boy did it deliver. The brush was just nails, and the soap scent was absolutely dynamite; this might be my favorite Noble Otter. Loved every minute of this.

Super Bowl shave

Soap: Fine Italian Citrus
Brush: Zenith boar
Razor: iKon X3 slant on bulldog handle, #12
Blade: Bic Chrome Platinum, #1 for first pass of cheeks; switched to Feather, #1 for the rest of the shave
Post: Alum -> hyaluronic acid-> Lucky Tiger aftershave

Started with a Bic Chrome Platinum for the first time, but had to quit after my cheeks--tugged all the way and no way I was going to risk it on my neck. Switched to the Feather and what a difference! Smooth and sharp and made for one of the better shaves I've had with this razor.

Razor: Timeless .95 Titanium OC / Scalloped Top Cap
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (1)

Lather: Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Space Nog CK-6
Aftershave: Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Space Nog Aftershave / Cologne
Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Space Nog Star Jelly Aftershave
Additional Care:
Osma Alum Block
Timeless Lather Bowl

Razor: King C Gillette
Blade: Gillette Platinum (4th Shave)
Croap: "Cella Milano Almond Soap Cream"
Post: Tea Tree Witch Hazel
Moisturiser: HA Serum
Balm: Prorasso Green Tea and Oat

Comments: I've been looking forwards to try Cella for a long time, today was my first time using it. Really enjoyed using it, good slickness, nice face feel. The scent is stronger in the container and mellows out when lathered, I found the marzipan scent pleasing, European cookery has lots of marzipan and almond in sweets as well. Blade is noticeably roughening up on the 4th shave.
