    Brush: MDMMen Cadman 26mm synthetic
    Razor: Rockwell 6S (3) w/ Gillette Silver Blue (1)
    Soap: Tabula Rasa Vetiver and Tangerine
    Post: Guerlain Vetiver

    Cracking stuff, I get more vetiver than tangerine though. Great performance. Very soft like a cream
     
  4. Exec Shaving pre oil
    OSP Sandalwood cream
    Fatip Piccolo
    Personna platinum
    Alum
    Cade a/s balm

    First off, get the blasphemy out of the way,...third shave with the OSP and I'm not impressed. I've lathered it up to a luxurious sheen, but it doesn't stay that way and I don't get the cushioning and glide that I've experienced from TOBS or Vulfix.
    That said the Piccolo performed brilliantly about three weeps that stopped almost immediately and to be fair were probably due to skin blemishes rather than razor bite.
    Alum rub was a bit lively but the Cade soon calmed things down.
    Also arrived today was some Extro Bay Rum.
    First impressions were mixed,...citrussy, rummy, dare I say, cheap?...
    But warming it in my palms and letting the top notes "evaporate", it settled down to a very complex, spicy fragrance that was a world away from the £1.99 Boot's offering.
    After a couple of hours on the skin, I can say I'm not disappointed and for the price it's a steal.

    Pre Shave: Hot Shower, Bulldog Face Wash and Proraso Red
    Razor: iKon 101 + OSS Handle
    Blade: ASCO orange (#1)
    Brush: Hans Baier Silver Tip
    Soap: Palmolive Stick grated
    Post: Alum Block, Cold water and Thayers unscented
    AS: Nivea Originals Balm

    A not so great shave today, the Palmolive Soap performed well after grating it up, I had two leftover sticks and decided to grate up what was left and stick it in a tin. What was not so good was the ASCO blade, no nicks, weepers or irritation but after three passes my face felt like it does normally after one pass with a blade that usually gives good results. The iKon 101 is quite mild but heavy and most blades I have tried are at least OK in this razor, the only other blade I recall that failed abysmally in this razor was the Merkur blade but that was actually worse than the ASCO.

    I will try the same blade in the Fatip Piccolo tomorrow.
