    Time to mix it up a little and go old skool! Great shave from the classics! The lather was good enough to photograph - but I forgot to, sorry.

    Great shave, the leviathan soap smells a good deal different to the splash IMHO, love the splash, pretty meh on the soaps scent, perfection performance wise.

    DR Harris Eucalyptus cream
    Omega 49
    Re-lather and cold rinse

    A lovely 3 pass BBS. This cream is very nice - more euc than Proraso Green but possibly less menth. Still smells awesomely Australian, which is rather ironic really. It rewarded the use of more product anyway. I ended up adding cream in between passes because of not recognising this initially but it lathers up quickly again in any case.

    Lovely glossy slick lather from the Stirling soap, will order more for sure once my soap supplies are sufficiently depleted. Seven shaves so far on the P30 ~ flipped the blade tonight when cleaning so will hope for another seven good shaves off the reverse side :)

    Heavy load and tonnes of slick, gorgeous smelling perfect lather. Fatboy was on a 3 with a new Nacet. I could have hacked away all day and not done any damage. The rich, unctuous, APR Winterfell Chypre giving me a big Autumnal hug to finish.
    Smooth, irritation free, smelling great. I can’t ask for any more.

    Pre: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
    Brush: Tony Forsyth P&C LE 2017 Platypus Manchurian Silvertip Badger
    Soap: Shaver Heaven Arctic Mango Tallow V2 formula
    Razor: ATT Kronos M2
    Blade: Vintage Polsilver (1)
    Post: Myrsol Emulsion
    EdT: DR Harris Mayfair

    A warm Spring evening was a perfect time to pull out of the cupboard the Shaver Heaven Arctic Mango Soap. Absolutely up there among my all-time favourites, with its subtle mango/peach/musk scent and refreshing menthol zing, and top quality lather performance in all respects.
    The ATT M2 plate coupled with a vintage Polsilver blade glided around my face with minimum friction, and after three passes and a wee few buffs, I was BBS. A very relaxing and refreshing shave.

    Pre: Coconut Oil
    Soap: Pb Bay/Lime MkII
    Brush: Semogue 1305
    Razor: Jowika 6/8"
    Post: Jojoba oil
    Reworked the Bay/Lime on Monday and gave it a run today.
    Ingredients: Stearic, Olive Oil, Tallow, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Borage Oil, Lanolin, Kokum Butter, Tussah Silk, Bentonite, Glycerin, Sodium Lactate, KOH, NaOH and essential oils.
    Scent profile is: Sweet Orange, Lime, Bay, Allspice, Clove, Cinnamon and Rum.
    I really like a bit of Clove but I know a few that don't @lerenau - this one's not for you.
    I haven't used Borage and Kokum before and I think it probably needs a week or two in the tub to settle but first shave was fine. Feels great on the face and provides plenty of protection and residual slickness.
