Bowl: Pereira Shavery Lathering Bowl
Soap: APR Suitably Attired Australian LE
Post: APR Restoration Peptide Concentrate Serum 15ml Tester A

A sublime near BBS this morning with the Game Changer and a Feather. I swear it was the most smoothest shave I have experienced in a longtime that after the first pass I had to check whether the blade was actually inside. Super efficient and walked a way with a couple small nicks on the adams apple and top lip but well worth it as it was comfortable and close. Finally completed the soap after using it consistently whilst testing out the Serum.... Happy shaves!

WTG, ATG, touch ups with adjusted angles for my beard.

Charcoal Goods Victorian is in my possession. As you would expect the fit and finish is top shelf and I like the engravings, just a stunner.
The first shave was stupendous. First pass easily mowed down the whiskers. I could hear ( I am hard of hearing) audible feedback, this razor sings. Second pass and touch ups wiped away any leftover whiskers and shaved the trouble spots with ease. Very comfortable shave with no irritation or weepers. Its an efficient, comfortable and easy razor to use. It does live up to the hype. Very impressed.
My only concern is when I lend this to @Razor Burn he may not return it. :unsure:

Nice work there - maybe this will keep it safe -

Brush: BSB Spain 24mm
Soap: Soap Smooth - Barber Shop
Razor: Timeless .68 SB - Scalloped Head
Blade: GSB (4) and out
Post-shave: AP Reserve Escentials 'Restoration'
Nice slick protective lather from the Soap Smooth Barbershop. Tastes awful though!
TBH if I used this daily would probably get a rash. I wonder if the tallow has gone a bit rancid?
Posilver, Nacet and Feather were stand out with Timeless 0.68

I agree, the Feather seems a perfect match with the GC .84

Bummer, sorry mate :(
No problem, thanks for the freebie. My loss will be someone else's gain. I just checked the others and T&D cream also has lanolin :(
Looks like I'll be travelling with Argo Neo Platinum from an earlier trade with @tullfan.
If I wasn't abstaining from aftershave due to APR Escentials trial would take the Madison Avenue travelling. Tempted to throw it in the bag anyway ;)

Found I still had a small sample of Lollipop Citrus fanging around in my stash that was given to me by @FluffyGroodle . It had pretty much lost it's scent now which is a shame as I remember it being quite pleasant. Still performed well.

Hopefully the brushes can outlast the remaining soap ring!
