Quite satisfactory shave, considering the blade is in its fourth use and did behave really well!
I am starting to think that this splash bottle is broken and the content is evaporating. Well, maybe is me that abuses it! It was funny that I remembered it is mentholated after I liberally splash it all over my face and made my cry :ROFLMAO:

Very good BBS shave achieved with this combo.
This cream is old but performs as if fresh. It has a crisp clean scent to it. I’m contemplating getting some of the Wild Rose flavor. Haven’t bought a tub of higher end cream for awhile so it would be a welcome addition to my gear.
