the gel is fine by itself as a shave product.

Brush: Omega 11047 Mixed Midget
Soap: Rasozero Agrumella
Razor: Wolfman WR2-SB 1.25 head on a "world's finest" handle
Blade: Personna Platinum Chrome (23)
ASL: Rasozero Agrumella with added menthol

An interesting, and good, shave. :biggrin:

Like most DE razors, the Wolfman was "different." (I love the "Tech type" blade loading design and its simple but beautiful looks.) I enjoyed the shave, but I definitely need a lot more training. My idea was to use the Wolfman for the upcoming FFFMM... but I'll give it three shaves before making that decision.

The rest of the kit was excellent, as usual, and my OBIF Personna Red is doing just fine. :yesnod:

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

Tuesday shave


Prep: Neutrogena Razor Defense face scrub
Cream: Palmolive menthol
Brush: Karve two-band badger
Razor: Mühle R89 Grande, #5 (double-shimmed)
Blade: Astra SP, #1
Post: Alum -> hyaluronic acid -> Skin Bracer aftershave

Back to a mediocre shave today though I did manage DFS on my face and CS on my neck (it met the definition of CCS, but it wasn't particularly comfortable). Two-passes only because my lather wasn't overly slick, or perhaps the Astra wasn't sharp enough, or both. I'm going to try a Feather tomorrow because the Astra is not performing as well as it usually does for me. I never get tugging with them in other razors, but I am noticing it with the R89. I didn't notice much of a change with two shims vs. one so I'll probably drop back down to one tomorrow.
The Tuesday shave;

Soap: Modern Williams
Lather Bowl: Fine Accoutrements
Brush: Van Der Hagen
Brush Soak: Van Der Hagen Bowl
Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC/SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow
Blade: Personna Lab Blue (4)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow (04)
AS: Clubman Original

Have a great day.
