Soap:pw Ocean blue
Razor:-Merkur progress

One thing what i liked in Pw soaps is that the lather is thick and fluffy type on skin

After the shave while cleaning the brush i just used the excess cream from the brush on the face and could feel the thick lather on clean shave skin.It was a great feeling.

Happy holi wishes from india

Blade GEM Stainless 2nd (Stropped)
Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Thayers + Hyaluronic + The Goodfellas Smile Abysso
Good soap/croap. Very pleasant mid-strength scent with creamy slick lather...
Shave with the razor paired with the blade that I stropped was very very smooth and comfortable for 3passes for a mostly BBS result. The aftershaves were excellent. Very enjoyable GEM session! Rating 10/10!!


Razor: Duplex OC
Blade: Gillette Super Silver 3rd use
Brush: Shavemac Two Band Silvertip
Soap: Vitos Extra Super Coco
Post: generic Witch Hazel, Lavish Care Exotic Spices AS
Result: BBS, two weepers in my trouble spot

This is the second razor I got from Peter @Northstonehill and it's a completely different beast than the Ripple. The blade is nearly flat on the base and needs a bit of fiddleing to get the blade reveal even. In addition it shows a tiny bit of frown that isn't felt. It's efficient with a pronounced audible feedback that reminds you that it can bite if you are not careful. It feels close to a current production R41 but is nimbler due to the slim head, real OC and balance. No autocruising on this one but a very enjoyable 3 pass BBS shave.

Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice

Decided to stick with this soap for another week. Today I am using the Omega boar which does a decent job in loading the soap and making lather. The Wolfman and Personna Lab made for a smooth and efficient shave.
