    Cold Water Rinse
    L'Occitane Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #206 Two-band Badger
    Gillette Twinjector
    Personna Injector
    CWR
    Family Dollar Spice AS

    The L'Occitane Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #206 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Twinjector razor with a Personna Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Family Dollar Spice AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Beautiful Gus. Is the ETHOS soap a Terre D'Hermes clone?

    Thanks, Primo. No, my friend. But, they do share a similarity in the citrus freshness that both Melange & Terre carry. The difference being in the gorgeous patchouli in Terre D’Hermes plus more woods in the drydown. They do compliment each other nicely with citrus & earthy accords..... :happy088:

    Happy Friday! Actually, Black Friday to be exact! Back to the Karve with the B plate and the Voskhod. Time to switch everything out and get back to the rotation! Great combo though and truly an enjoyable razor regardless if you are using SB or OC plates. Though my experience ends at the D SB and B OC respectively. Nothing beyond that interested me and I glad I went within that range.

    Soap today Cafe au Lait from A&E. Great coffee and chocolate scent. Also, love the way this one lathers which is easy. I have said it in the past, I really must get some more of their stuff but I am stacked pretty tall.

    Clean and smooth after two very enjoyable passes. Topped off with Guerlain Santal Royal. Oh coffee, chocolate and sandalwood DO go very well together. Enjoy your Friday, weekend and stay safe!

    This is so far the best shave I've had with this razor and blade combo. I suspect it has to do with how the blade is wearing. I've experienced the same with injector blades on shaves 6 - 8 and I doubt AC style injector blades are that much different. As such I also expect about 10 good shaves out this blade like I get with injector blades before needing to be tossed. BBS finish achieved.
