Brush Yaqi 26mm Lucky Dice 2 Band Badger
Razor Game Changer.84-P SB
Blade Dorco Prime Platinum 2nd & last!
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Thayers + Hyaluronic + The Goodfellas Smile Chronos
Good lather from the soap. Really nice scent.
Shave with razor paired with the blade was just ok. Smooth and comfortable for 3passes except during the atg pass on chin and lips area for a dfs to ccs result. It was skippy & tuggy but fortunately did not suffer any nicks nor weepers. This is the best area to determine blade quality. This blade not so good for me. Will be ditched. Excellent post & aftershaves. Rating 9/10

Razor: King C Gillette
Blade: King C Gillette (3rd use)
Brush: Yaqi Moka
Soap: Captain's Choice Venture
Post: Tea Tree Witch Hazel
Balm: Prorasso Greentea and Oat

Comment: Excellent soap. The KCG razor is mild though does the job well, the blade is also good but WAY too expensive if purchased by itself at $14aud ($10usd) for 2 tucks of 5. These blades, although really good, do not confer any superpowers for that price, so I shall not buy them separately.

SOTD : 14th January 2021.

A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...A great shave to end my shaving week in style.

The Gillette 'NOS 94' blade has performed wonderfully with each of my shaves....I normally retire a blade after 4-5 max, but the 'NOS 94' i will use again in future shave as it's still got plenty of life within it...Finishing the shave with a small dollop of Boots ~ Fragrance Free Moisturising Lotion.
