Went pretty successful, just one small cut on my lip.
Stropping feels kinda awkward like even though i know what to do it feels like i am doing it wrong.

Beer was fantastic, best find of the year so far.

Nice lather especially with the coffee scent. Can't resist posting with my morning coffee...hahaha.
Shave with razor paired with blade was really smooth and comfortable. 1st & 2nd passes very comfy but on 3rd...forgotten not to chase bbs...hahahaha. Went abit aggressive on the neck and suffered weepers again! Overall between BBS and DFS. Rating 8/10
