Comments: A "Wonderful Nostalgic Shave"... I grew up with palmolive green being our family soap. Today I shaved with the palmolive shave lather, I haven't smelt palmolive in years! The lather is utterly excellent and only $2.50 aud, made in Italy. Heritage could be considered a lot of men's daily driver for a great mild shave. Enjoyed today's shave a lot.
Tuesday, 1/26


Razor - Gillette Slim Adjustable
Blade - Astra SS
Brush - G Point/Rhodium 26mm 2-band
Soap - Ariana & Evans Turkish Coffee
A/S - Ariana & Evans Turkish Coffee

Wow this Lupo is crazy good. Been too long since I used it. The soap was awesome, a sweet spice scent from the tub, with the coffee really coming through in a big way with the splash. The brush was scritchier than I expected for a hand-tied knot, but had a nice easy splay and gave me a great lather. My complexion was so smooth and clear after this shave, it was incredible.

Nice lather from the soap. Creamy, slick, and nice but mild scent.
The shave with razor paired with the blade was very good. Very smooth and comfortable for 3passes even [email protected] areas without any issues for a mostly BBS result. Excellent aftershaves! The lead for today's shave is the razor/blade combo.
