1st use of the soap sample and ohh boy...the scent is amazing even before lathering. Gorgeous and awesome good strength scent! The lather is beautifully creamy and slick too, and as usual, I made way too much...will keep it for the next day. Excellent soap this!! Will sure be on my list now!
Shave with razor paired with the well-used blade was fantastic! I strop the blade prior and wow...crisply smooth and so comfortable for 3passes, even for the usual problem area atg pass on chin & lips with this SE razor. Very close mostly bbs result previously never achieved with the razor. No weepers, creepers nor irritation. Excellent aftershave. Rating 10/10!
At this rate...I may not have to buy more GEM blades...hahaha

Benzadmiral had a post yesterday with his Travel Tech and Short Comb Handle and I was inspired to do the same.
Applying a little shave cream to your soap can make a super luxurious lather. Lots of cushion and great feel on the face.

Have a great day everyone

TOBS grapefruit
Simpson Chubby 2 best
Timeless with Polsilver
Thayer’s rose

New tub of the grapefruit. It was a bit firmer than my other TOBS creams. Nice scent. Sandalwood will probably remain my favorite TOBS cream.

Second shave with the Timeless (.68 SB). For some reason the Polsilver wasn’t as comfortable as the Astra was on Saturday. Will try a Nacet tomorrow.

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: Rooney 1/3 Super Silvertip Badger
Soap: Cold River Soap Works Oliva Citrus Fougère
Razor: Original Tradere Razors Tradere SB
Blade: Super Iridium BN-84 (2)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel; Pitralon Swiss
Scent: Knize Forest

A very comfortable shave with the Tradere. The CRSW Oliva soap was delightful - very slick and good residual slickness, and a refreshing and complex scent.
Knize's interpretation of fougère played well against the soap scent.
