7B1979BE-0759-4DCE-AAB1-FBF414A914E7.jpeg Pre:-
Razor: G-FOCS
Blade: Gillette Minora stainless 2nd use
Brush: Yaqi Sagrada Familia 22mm Two Band
Soap: Colonel Conk Bay Rum
Post: Alum, generic Witch Hazel, TOBS Bay Rum
Result: BBS, 2 weepers

The Minora is smoothing out nicely so I pushed for BBS - a bit to hard - and received 2 weepers in my usual trouble spot. Other than that it worked fine in my FOCS but is not in the same league as my go to Perma-Sharps.

Blade: The Blade (Personna) Stainless Steel
Brush: Frank Shaving G4 Synthetic striped handle
Pre-Shave: Proraso White
