Pre shave: Warm shower and L'Oreal face wash + Noxzema Shave Cream
Razor: PAA DOC
Blade: BiC Chrome Platinum (#2)
Soap: Body Shop Maca Root cream
Brush: Vulfix 404
Post shave: Alum block, cold water splash and Thayer’s Cucumber witch hazel
AS: Nivea 2 Phase
A wonderful shave set up..+ 1 on the Maca Root cream..It's still a great favourite of mine, superb performer.;)
 
Myrsol Agua BalsImica Cream/Croap (?)
YaqI Chianti 24mm Synthetic
Rockwell 6C R3
Voskhod (1)
Witch Hazel Mixture
Floid Black Aftershave

First use of this Myrsol cream. . . . First thing to say is that it has a really strong scent, at least 11/10 !!
I'm not a fan of the scent at all because of its strength. Unlike other soaps/creams, the scent remained at full strength throughout the shave.
I decided to face lather and it was not a great success. It took quite a while to build a not very good lather, but I thought I would take the risk and go with it.
Well, it performed admirably. Not much cushion, but plenty of glide/slickness.
My usual WTG/ATG shave routine was comfortable enough and I attained a good near BBS finish all over.
Post Shave was unexpectedly very good.
Will I use this cream again soon? Not very likely, purely because of the pungent scent.
Finished with another product new to me, Floid Black Aftershave. Very nice scent, and good nourishing performance.

Those Myrsol cream scents are very strong :eek: I also have the Don Miguel which is pungent jasmine. As you say they produce an odd lather, more like a slime but it performs pretty well. Glad you enjoyed the Floid, a reliably great performer... I just found the scent not to my taste.
