A NON Tallow soap and the world didn't end. In fact resulted in a great shave 😁

Razor-20's Gillette NEW improved gold
Blade-Astra sp
Soap-Goodfellas smile Fougere
Brush-Vie long mixed horse hair
Aftershave-Vintage Brut

Big fan of this soap I stumbled upon at TJ Max clearence for $4. Vegan base. Pairs perfectly with the Brut almost as a matching scent. Wifey will smell me blocks away on her walk home from work 🤣

First use of the new brush was an experience, ive never used anything apart from the shavershop standard kind of brushes and it was awesome, good lather and felt alot nicer to use and had better coverage, im glad i got some decent brushes finally.
