    Trumper CSF / PRE
    ARKO stick SS
    Swiss Pitralon
    MB ASB Cucumber
    TOBS Mr. Taylor EdC

    at first I thought the blade was cr*p and while rinsing I thought of it as a mediocre shave. After applying the ASB though, everything was smooth, 100% BBS and it still is now - nearly 8 hours afterwards. So, instead of being a mediocre shave it turned out to be a GREAT one :D

    Rating: 4,9/5 - it doesn't get much better

    • Hot shower
    • SCS preshave oil
    • Hot towel
    • Derby Lemon on face
    • MB Sensual Fragrance soap water in lather mug, mix with Derby on face
    • Fat Boy (3/5/7)/7 am
    • Alum block
    • Witch hazel
    • Aqua Velva Ice Blue
    • SCS Aged Leather aftershave
    • L'Occitane Vetyver EDT

    I thought the blade did a crap job, but it actually did a great one once the face had time to relax! Not sure how many shaves I will get out of it, this was number 2 and I am a bit cautious about going for 3.

    Soap of the Day - Honey Bee Spa Vanilla Oak
    Tried some SSC Bay w/Twist EDT

    Result: 4.4/5.0 I tiny peep from the alum block.

    Other Note: I need to put the SSC Bay w/Twist into a different bottle. The spray puts out way too much and almost gagged everyone in the room.:D If I take the top off and just wet the tip of my finger and then apply to my neck it smelled much much better. Ahhhh...bay rum

    L'Occitane CADE Shaving Soap
    Plisson HMW 12
    TI Pierre Thiers Hand Forged Straight
    TI Strop
    L'Occitane CADE A/S Splash
    L'Occitane CADE A/S Balm

    I came to a grim realisation this morning, if I keep going at the Yardley soap the way I have been it will soon be gone. Whilst not using it is an upsetting experience, running out altogether would be worse so it was with great reluctance that I reached for another soap this morning. Still, what better way to lessen the blow than reaching for the trio of CADE products. It's not Yardley, but it's still fantastic:D
