Brush: RR Boar
Razor: Timeless Bronze SB
Blade: Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellow (3)
Pre: Shower
Soap: Declaration Grooming Trismegistus
Post: Old Spice A/S Splash // The Stray Whisker After Balm
WTG, Touchups = DFS

Onto my next "croap'' and very similar to the Tabula Rasa but a sweeter scent profile. Enjoying the boar brushes as they paint on the lather nicely. The blade shaved smoothly but not as close as I like but for a daily shave it works fine.

Stay Safe & Happy Shaves!

Third new soap for the week. This one I have had a sample of before. Glad I finally picked this up, because it is a great scent. It might easily become one of my favourites. Happy shaves!

Its shaves like this that reinforce why I'm currently on Sabbatical as the gear used is top notch! The CG L2 is a great shave but in this pairing it stepped up the efficiency with the perfect amount of blade feel... :)

Stay Safe & Have a Great Weekend!
