Got the new goat milk and lanolin version in today and had to give it a run. Scent is still on point and the performance is excellent!

Easy to load and enough lather for 3+ passes that didn't fade or thin out. Excellent slickness, cushion, & glide with each pass. Post shave left my face feeling soft and moisturized. If I was a balm guy, I wouldn't have needed it. Followed with the matching splash of course.

Definitely a home run Peter, and recommended to anyone that may be on the fence with ordering! Great stuff!

Evening head shave, oil only, Yaqi DOC top cap on RR Old Type bottom plate, handle from that weird double blade Russian razor I can never remember the name of but it fits and balances perfectly here. Cap width is similar to the RR but less curve, so I'm guessing a bit more exposure. Tian Li blade.
