    Razor: Razorock 2nd Gen Lupo.72, Mfg 2021> excellent mid range, excellent design, very enjoyable shave & care free mostly.
    Blade: GSB (3) top tier, Sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity, one of my favorites right on 1st shave!
    Soap: Tabac, nice flowery clean mild scent with excellent lather qualities, post shave skin can feel a little dry IMO.
    Brush: Yaqi red Zebra 26mm synthetic [​IMG], nice luxury feel, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, gentle scrub+ excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Post shave: Razorock Santa Marie del Fiore AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizer lotion balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers= [​IMG]excellent shave with my RR Lupo.72 with a GSB blade.

    Twice a week doesn't seem to be making a huge difference in finishing off this Soap Commander tub. Almost like it is 3x milled in its ability to hang on.
    Have a great day all!

    What makes that NEW LC a 'Windsor', Gary? is it just the case like a 'Bostonian' designation? I have a Canadian Ball End NEW LC (as an extra) without a case.

    When your technique is advanced, you can very easily adapt to new gear. Well done with the Henson.

    Nice shave. I regret selling (piffing??, I can't remember) my tub of American Blend. It is a terrific scent. (YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme).

    This is weird, but that huge container kept me from purchasing. They had a special, 3oz Indian Sandalwood that was amazing. I had two tubs and...sold 'em. :angry032:

    I noticed you felt Tabac left your face a bit dry. May I suggest over-hydrating your lather to see how much H2O it can absorb. If you do it slowly, you will be amazed. My guess is that your lather is a bit under-hydrated.

    The tub of Endurance is now almost 5 years old. It does seem to have hardened, even with recent regular use. I swear I have triple milled pucks that wear quicker! A fine product, but yes, the containers are huge considering it is a hard soap and not a cream or croap.
