Preshave: Hot water rinse + bloom water
Razor: Gillette 7 O'Clock OC
Blade: Lord Platinum (1)
Brush: Plisson Pure Badger (vintage)
Shaving Soap: Wickham LE Bleu
Aftershave Balm: Bulldog Sensitive
Aftershave: Old Spice Whitewater

A very satisfactory billiard ball smooth finish with a couple of very minor weepers which closed before I'd finished. My wife approves, so we have another success and I'm a happy chappy.

As much as I enjoy ATT razors this R2 Open Comb isn't for me.:cry: It may well suit someone with tough dense stubble but for daily shaving I find it a tad too much. The head will be heading over to BST.:thumbsdown:
nice photo with my old shaving brush :) very beautiful man :)

Pre Shave: Face wash with Nesti Dante bar soap
Soap: Oatcake Shaving Soap - Driftwood
Brush: SimFix sythetic re-knotted with a 24mm AP Shave Co SynBad knot
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (4)
Razor: Merkur Futur
Post: L'Oreal Men Expert Hydra Sensitive Moisturiser

First use with Driftwood and akin to my last shave with Lavender Melt, the scent profile and performance on this soap is top knotch, it's not a light weight scent and I can see it being akin to Marmite (which I don't like - unlike the soap).



I certainly wouldn't discount BIC blades out of hand and will definitely try them in other razors but I currently have other blades which work better for me with less fuss. I'm still working my way through the sample pack.

What he said.... I like the Bic Chrome blade and in some razors they work great! :)

Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium (2)

Asb: Givenchy Pi Neo
Edt: Givenchy Pi Neo

After being ill for a few days and not having a shave since Sunday I thought to myself I have never used plate 6 on the Rockwell ( i was probably just a little bit scared of using it) well I think I should use plate 6 more often because I only needed 2 passes and a couple of touch ups
Ps are there areas on your face that make you go argh mine is either side of the windpipe

The Slim gives me efficient but not the smoothest shaves.

This is my first experience with Glacial Stirling soaps. Man it's cold. The menthol is so strong I thought my face was freezing. I don't usually have seasonal soaps, but this one is definitely for hot summer days.
