Razor: H3 Slim on setting 5
Brush: Semogue Mistura Finest Butterscotch
Blade: Wizamet Iridium Super 2nd use
Soap: Extro Camelot sample
Post: TFS Witch Hazel, Vitos After Shaving
This time: proper brush = proper lather = proper result
I'm still struggling a bit with the weight distribution and the bulkiness of the head but this shave with the Slim was much better than the first one. Vitos, which was just powdery sweetness straight out of the bottle, is quite mellow once on the skin. I do get the amber and talcum now but am still searching for the orange and tobacco.
SOTN Tuesday 5/4
Razor: Artrazor Cardinal 11/8 with dark mammoth scales
Soap and Aftershave: Stirling Soap Meghalaya
Brush: Saville Row Silvertip
Bowl: Decided to pull out my Van Yulay travel bowl. It's smaller than what I prefer to use, but still works well.
Post Shave: Barbedeaux

______ Pre: CeraVe Moisturizing Bar Brush: PAA Atomic Rocket Bowl: Captain's Choice Heavy Copper Lather: Stirling "Orange Chill"* Razor: RR "Lupo" .72 Blade: Silver Star Post: GBS Alum Block Balm: CeraVe Moisturizer Frag: Lalique "Encre Noire à L'Extreme"
*This stuff smells so goooood!
It really is tempting to taste.
Added a dollop of Pantene
Hair Conditioner to my lather.
Stirling's soaps already leave
my skin soft and supple after
shaving. Adding conditioner
just enhanced the softness.
Makes me wonder why I even
bother with the alum block.
brush: Simpsons Classic
Razor: Henson AL Medium
After: La Toja
I love the Voskhod with the Henson, but I think I’ve got a bad tuck. One side of the blade shaves normally, the other tugs like crazy. Second blade of the package and same behavior. Tossed it immediately
the Simpsons Classic is as good as Best Badger goes. Absolutely no prickling or scritch, just a good friction and massage. Still, I’m digging the more luxurious feel of Super these days.
many gents here rave the Duke series, but for me the density of the Classic is unmatched. It’s truly a Chubby 0.5
Also, it felt odd to use the Classic after 3 days with the Chubby 3, it Feels like a toy but it’s very comfortable and produced a beautiful lather as usual with Tabac
