Magnificent. The brush was awesome creating a perfect Stirling lather, and the razor glided super smoothly with the Nacet. I'm definitely a fan of that blade now. Good longevity too. Very close shave, skin very soft and smooth. 10/10 once again, that's all there is to it!

Love this brush. Feels more or less like a Declaration; big bloom, firm backbone, splays easily into a very light scrub with wonderful tips. THB is actually very good soap, I didn't realize that. Really really slick; the Old Type glided pretty well through it, even with the first-use Feather being a little rough. And the aftershave had a terrific old-fashioned cologne scent that I loved. What a nice close shave!
Just one change today. I made my second ASL and used it after the shave. It has similar characteristics to my Cool Lemon only with more sting (more alcohol content) and a lovely sweet orange scent from the EO.
Prep: Neutrogena Razor Defense face scrub
Soap: A&E St. Bart's
Brush: Semogue Owners Club Two-Band Badger
Razor: Yaqi Beast on RazoRock radio knob handle, shave #12
Blade: Astra SP, shimmed (#5 and binned)
Post: Alum -> hyaluronic acid -> A&E St. Bart's aftershave
Closing the week out with another steep-angle DFS. One tender spot from the alum, but it was on a spot where I'd lost concentration and started the blade without paying attention. No weeper or cut, but I felt it and knew I'd hear it from the alum. New blade tomorrow and I'll go steep sans shim and see what happens.
