Night before Christmas shave

Razor: English Gillette Tech, alum hand, brass top+bottom plate
Blade: BIC Chrome Platinum (2nd use)
Brush: Omega 10098
Cream: Shave (Formerly Fauldings Shave)
A/S: Wavol bay rum

A budget Aussie shave today. The Shave cream was my first cream and what I learned to shave on. It's cheap and acts as such, but you can get it to perform once you learn how to. Use heaps with a well shaken and squeezed brush and only add tiny amounts of water. The lather dries on the face rather quickly and leaves no residual slickness. Yet I have a soft spot for it, if only for it's lavender scent. But I had a very close and comfortable shave, no nicks or bumps.
The Omega easily holds enough lather for 3 passes, and I like this handle style the best of all my brushes. This cream works best face lathering with a painting motion than scrubbing, and I find this handle style works best for that.
