Excellent lather from the soap! A nice cooling orangy scent, creamy and slick too...love this soap!
Shave with razor paired with the blade was very good! Unimaginably smooth and comfortable for 3passes without any issues for a bbs/dfs/ccs result! Excellent post & aftershaves too.
Wow indeed for this blade... today's lead is the razor/blade pairing...so enjoyable. Rating 9.8/10

Razors: Gillette Heritage (limited edition) vs. Muhle R89 Safety Razors
Blade: Personna Red (Israeli's)
Soap: Yuzu/Rose/Pachouli by Declaration Grooming
Post: Tea Tree Witch Hazel
Moisturiser: Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Balm: Prorasso Green Tea and Oat
EDT: Sauvage by Dior

Comments: I believe that the Gillette Heritage is slightly more efficient than the Muhle R89 though the heads appear near identical. I prefer the feeling of using something heavier with the muhle being nearly 10 grams heavier than the Heritage, though the check knurling on the heritage is spot on for grip. Really enjoy the Personna Reds and find them to be a balance razor blade, I hope they continue to produce them.
