Very nice cream... the scent is pleasant and the lather is just impeccable...
Missed this razor and today's shave with it was ok. The edge after some laps on the new LaLune and Kanayama was not laser-like after pasted balsa but acceptable. I need to fine-tune how to use the LaLune. 3passes without any issues for a ccs finish. Aftershaves were excellent for a hot humid day...

A new shave set up to start the weekend.

The razor & blade duo was absolutely fantastic....Super smooth and efficient...I wasn't sure if the Derby Usta would pair together with R41, How wrong i was. They paired together excellently...Wow!

The Nivea Men Sensitive Pro shaving cream provided an excellent lather with little effort.

My face & precious swede are feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.

Have a great day!

Greencult safety razor with M plate loaded with a Feather.

After I tested the S plate (mild) and L plate (aggressive), it was my turn today for the M plate (medium-aggressive).

Well, what should I capitalize? In principle, I personally get along with all 3 records.

Although the L plate needs a little more attention against the grain, the S plate, on the other hand, is almost foolproof and the M plate is more in the middle.

I also had a clean result with the M plate. Since the head is also new and has been revised, I would like to emphasize here that the Greencult with its 3 plates (coming around July/August) is a clear alternative to many other stainless steel safety razors.

We can't wait to see what the end product will look like. So far the 3 plates and the new head are prototypes.
