Face wash with Neutrogena Liquid Facial Soap
GFT Sandalwood Cream
Paladin Chief
Captain’s Choice Copper
Pre-war Tech
Thayers WH & Proraso ASB
Versace, The Dreamer
Still alternating between one soap and this cream. This cream has really lasted and still works fine even though it is quite old and dry. The Paladin Chief is a big brush and makes more than enough lather for a four-pass shave on my face and neck and two passes on my head.

Have some great shaves!
Razor/blade: Vector OC / Feather Soft Guard (5)
Brush: Zenith 506 Silvertip
Pre: PAA Cube (no menthol)
Soap: Bearskin & Tunic 'Loch Lomond' - Lavender, bergamot, vetiver
Post: Alum, Vifrex gel, MdC Vétyver edt
Shave: ATG + touch up. BBS...

Closest I've ever come to BBS in one pass. Really enjoying this new discovery of ATG first pass: something I would never have attempted before getting hold of the Vector. The OC baseplate has reduced the alum feedback to almost nil. At the moment, that single pass takes about double the time a WTG first pass would, but it's worth it.
