Not the most smoothest of shaves with the SB side being a tad more aggresive than the OC side. Might try the Voskhod in the 103 OC for comparisons next shave...? Still managed a DFS with one small nick on the adams apple

Bellissimo! I'm really not sure what yesterday was about. I kept the same setup for a third day because I don't like ending on a downer - it came good again today.
Very much enjoying this soap and even though it is not currently being made due to an ingredient shortage, I don’t feel bad about uploading plenty of soap.
Also can’t get over how great this Nivea stuff makes my face feel. Might be a great option to always have on hand and when it dries, a little of something else with some staying power such as APR gives the right balance of face feel and scent.
Well similar results to my last shave. It appears the blade doesn't shave as smooth as I'm used to, slightly rough especially inder the nose. I will try it again in something less adventures, e.g my Merkur 34C... Happy shaves!
