Quite the luxurious combo here. This soap embodies spring in my mind and it was 65 and sunny in nw ohio today. I like to think spring is just around the corner but I doubt it.

Razor: Mühle R89 Grande, #9
Blade: Kai, #1 (shimmed)
Post: Alum -> hyaluronic acid -> Brut aftershave

Two passes leading to SAS on my lower neck and DFS everywhere else. Minimal feedback and, for once, no irritation on my neck, which was a nice change of pace for this razor.
Jack Black Facial Scrub
Microwaved towel with Thayers Lemon Astingent
Truefitt and Hill Preshave
Semogue TSN 2020 badger 78 of 100 - 5th use. Man this thing is soft and the flow through on the stroke is so smooth. In different light the look of the handle changes bigtime. I have the 3 different knot styles of the Owners Club brushes and this is a super sweet addition to the lineup..........worth the money to get it to me from a different country.
Rockwell 6S on plates 6, 5, 4 and then 2. Never gone to 6 on this blue beauty but I was good.........no cuts or razor burn.......friggin' eh'!!!
Gillette Silver Blue second use blade - in my 7 months or so of DE shaving the Silver Blue is the best all round I have used.
TOBS Royal Forest Shave Cream
Alum block
Proraso Blue Aftershave balm followed by microwaved towel
Thayers Lavender Tone followed by cold towel
Old Spice Aftershave
