  10. SOTD triple post:
    Todays SOTD post is three posts in one, i haven't had time to post individual one's this past week or so.

    SOTD 1:. A beautiful shave with uncle Jon's pipe smoke, this stuff is absolutely fantastic, and a great performer for sure. Lathers like an absolute bomb, and very slick too. The scent is absolutely remarkable.

    Razor: Wilkinson sword TTO
    Blade: personna lab blue (10)
    Brush: Wilkinson sword classic shave premium
    Soap: uncle Jon's pipe smoke
    Aftershave balm: prep

    SOTD 2: a fantastic shave with the boots cream, this stuff is one of the slickest creams ive used, and works well as long as you use the correct amount, a large almond sized blob works best for me for three passes. An absolutely fantastic cream.

    Razor: Wilkinson sword TTO
    Blade: personna lab blue (11)
    Brush: Wilkinson sword classic shave premium
    Cream: boots cool colgne
    Aftershave balm: prep

    SOTD 3: A much better performance from the proraso sapone than i remember, the menthol was absolutely perfect strength wise, and although i still say proraso lacks slickness, it gave me a perfect shave and it has excellent protection, it definitely deserves a re evaluation after my last review where i was quite critical of its performance.

    Razor: Wilkinson sword TTO
    Blade: personna lab blue (12)
    Brush: Wilkinson sword classic shave premium
    Soap: proraso sapone (green)
    Aftershave Balm: prep[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
