Body Shop’s Maca Root & Aloe Shaving Cream never dissapoints. Builds a monster leather no matter how less you use. The scent is extremely clean and fresh, and has an obvious aquatic feel to it. My Velva went along well it. It probably has the mildest scent out of all Aqua Velva aftershaves i’ve used. I shaved around 4 hours ago and most Aqua Velvas would still maintain the scent, but not this one. I only feel very mild hints of it now. No complaints though. My skin still smoother than silk! The razor of choice today was my Wilkinson Sword. Used it after a while since i was only using my Weishi off late. The blade as always was the Astra Superior Platinum, and brush of choice my Omega Boar Bristle.
