Absolutely love this soap! Intoxicating icy scent with nice creamy and slick lather!
Dorko has returned freshly honed on Ozuku and this time the razor will stay...for a loooong time. The edge was brilliant...sharp, very smooth, and comfortable. 3passes without any issues for a mixed bbs/dfs/ccs best ever SR result! Matching splash truly enhanced the intoxicating scent and the icy feel!

Sunny Sunday Shave. I am using the Ethos Unscented with the Rudy Vey syn knot. A very nice lather. The Wolfman – Wizamet combo is on the 3rd shave. An excellent BBS shave. Have a great day.

I’m still trying to decide about this shave
This shave was a little different and I haven’t completely come to any final opinion on it.
I found the Reuzel shave cream in a clearance bin and picked it up without realizing that it was a brushless latherless cream. The Personna blade was of an unknown type and vintage. It was tossed in with a previous razor purchase.

I rubbed the cream all over my face with my left hand, and held the razor in my right. The left hand stayed ensconced in cream for ease of reapplication. No lather, just a white film on my face. It did feel odd and inconvenient, but at no time did I get any nicks or scrapes or burn even though I worked the razor over my face more than usual. The cream had slickness and protection, but the blade didn’t feel as efficient as I’m used to with a brand new injector blade. I had to work at trying to get my usual BBS, but after more than enough scrubbing, I gave up. Close but no cigar.
I wouldn’t call this vintage Personna blade dull as there was no tugging or grabbing, but it seemed extremely mild. I really had to work it for my smooth shave. I’m not sure whether to give it a second go, or toss it.
I will give the Reuzel cream another go round with a more familiar razor, but I’m still not that keen on shaving with a razor in one hand, and the other covered in a layer of cream.
My skin type is really enjoying the Tea Tree AS Toner.
