    Try less water. I noticed that I always used little water when whipping in a mug. The burma was good for it but others were just too slick when whipping with the amount of water I usually used. I had no problems with it.

    Facial Wash: Nancy Boy Mild Facial Wash
    Body Oil: Burt's Bees Dr. Burt's Vitamin E Body & Bath Oil

    Shaving Bowl: Petco 4" Stainless Steel Pet Water Bowl
    Shaving Cream: Nancy Boy Replenishing Shave Cream (As a pre-lather)

    Result: 4.2/5.0 I didn't go for BBS today. I was more playing with technique. Blade angle on the Futur with lather technique. I lathered my whole face and then moved the lather around with a couple of drops of water and my fingertips to the spots I needed just before I shaved them. I was kind of doing it like waxing a car. A little here, a little there instead of all at once.

    The str8 and DE combo work OK?
    I do like the Avalon Shampoo & Conditioners
    I want to try the Pine Tar Soap. I had some Burt's Bees but I bet Grandpa's is much better and cheaper. I'm phasing out some of my Burt's products.
    Oh dear, no Anherb for me yet or Muscgo either. :(

    Rich - it worked pretty good, thanks for the idea :D

    They are good for everyday use, as they are gentle.....and especially in the winter when the air is dry. But sometimes, you need something with a little more "ooomph" ;)

    Yeah, I used to use a LOT of Burt's Bees stuff.....too much to list. But for me, the Bay Rum stuff is all I'll ever use again (not the shave soap)

    Awesome stuff, duderino. The lime is key, it helps to soften whisker and cleanse the beard.

    Saturday, 7.50 a.m. :

    Futur / Feather (day 8; second side/edge of the blade)
    SCS badger brush
    Proraso pre
    LEA shaving cream with menthol
    Mennen Skin Bracer A/S
    Lucky Tiger Vanishing cream

    It's really hot here in Germany (yesterday 30°C) and today the weather forecast tells something about thunderbolts and intense rain...
    High humidity with temperatures up to 32°C, so I adapted my shaving gear for this.

    A nice weekend to everybody and some nice experiences;) ;)
