    Cream: Muhle Aloe Vera
    Brush: Muhle Black Fibre 21 mm
    Razor: Dovo Shavette

    An all German affair this morning. Cream: good stuff. Brush: small but ok knot with a crappy handle due to lack of a waterproof finish. Shavette: time for a new blade, old is maybe still plenty sharp but 1-2-3 switch no questions asked is the rule.

    Soap: Phoenix and Beau Sanskrit
    Razor: R89
    Blade: Sputnik (3)
    Brush: Erasmic

    Another soap sample, another face lather. There seems to be less lather than with the Nanny's yesterday, but I think I put less soap on my face in the first place, and what there is seems very slick. I would never have picked this soap based on the description, but it smells fantastic.

    My initial plan on receiving the Newbie box was to use the R89 until today, then move onto the Futur clone, but I'm just getting the hang of it. I don't want to give it up yet!

    All in all, a lovely shave.

    Prep ~ Shower, Valobra tallow bath soap
    Razor ~ General - Brass
    Blade ~ proline
    Soap ~ Enriched Monsavon
    Brush ~ Omega Badger
    Post ~ Bart's Balm's AS Rosemary & Sandalwood
    Scent ~ Miller Harris - L' Air de Rien

    everything worked perfectly, I was left super smooth from a few strokes with the General with skin that felt soft and supple from the enriched Monsavon, I applied my Barts's AS lotion anyway and the scent of the Rosemary & Sandalwood was wonderful, very close to Aqua di Parma, perfect.
    My scent for today is L' Air de Rien by Miller Harris, a blend of Musk and Amber and Vanilla along with Neroli and Patchouli, quite soft and delicate, it's not overpowering and its quite unintrusive. I really like it.

    I hope you all have a wonderful day......:) P.

    It's well known that a variety of spices is good for you. That coupled with the ingeneously and superbly designed Streamline produced a spectacular shave. One to remember.

    Good day to you all!!!

    Brush - Zenith B07
    Soap - Proraso Green
    Razor - Yaqi OC
    Blade - Gillette 7OC Green Russia
    Post - Nivea Balm
    AS - Eyup Sabri Lemon

    Into a few shaves with the Zenith B07 and it seems to be a bit of a lather eater so far. I thought about breaking it using the fridge method but the brush seems to be already soft and splays well so a bit of lather consumption isn't too much of a big deal.

    The Yaqi OC head is very mild, possibly even milder than a Gillette Tech and with the 7OC Green was incredibly smooth, a really fine combination and was very efficient in the shave as well especially under my jaw which can be tricky to get good results at times.
