Preshave: frigid tap water
Brush: Shavemac Synthetic
Soap: Stirling Soap ~ Triumph
Razor: Merkur 15c Open Comb
Blade: Rapira Platinum Lux (7)
Postshave: frigid tap water, Stirling Soap Triumph AS.

Today's spin offered a dramafree shave with dfs results. Since Merkur 15c is a very mild razor (due to its negative blade exposure) I sometimes add a shim in order to gain some more efficiency, but today I wasn't in the mood to do that. Dfs is all I wanted to achieve today. I did.

Happy shaves!

Success !

I think I finally wooed La Toja stick and it has started to bestow me with lots of affection (protection), kisses (slickness) and all it needed was some pampering and a good face lathering brush.

La Toja behaves more like Tabac rather than Arko and it has earned a place in my shave rotation.

Razor : RazoRock Game Changer OC 84
Blade : Willy's
Brush : RazoRock Beehive
Stick : La Toja
Aftershave : Alum rub and Anherb ASC
