@Boycie83 youll need to add TOBS Grapefruit cream to your experiment. It's the best citrus cream out there...I should know...ive tried...well...just that one :LOL: ...but its probably my favourite soap outside of Denali.
I can do that - there's some in the ottoman (which is the new drawer of shame that holds all the overflow from the den). I'm terrible for getting distracted halfway through my threads hence why I limited it to three.

Have a shave with it and post your thoughts here. It'll be helpful for others.

My poor attempt at reviews wouldn't do it justice but next time I use it I'll throw some thoughts in here:)

Razor: Schick Type L
Blade: NOS Schick (2)
Brush: Yaqi 24mm Silvertip
Soap: TOBS Lime Zest
Pre: Azur Lime
ASL: Signature Soaps Hibernia
ASB: Creightons

I really like the smell of this TOBS Lime Zest. I stick by my original description of it being a lime version of Wickham's 1912 Club Cola. It provided plenty of slick lather with the usual TOBS ease. It's absolutely fine performance wise but I'd rate the Trumpers Lime as a better cream. They're two different takes on lime scent wise so it's hard to choose between them in this regard.

I'm still really enjoying the Schick injector. Provides a really comfortable shave.

3 passes today for a great finish. The ES Citrus Kiss cream still remains one of my favourites. Performance is up there with Trumpers and the scent is a nice fresh citrus scent without the acidic edge. No problems producing quality lather for the 3 passes with the small Semogue.

Once again, the Hibernia proves its versatility by working well with the Citrus Kiss. The Schick continues to impress me as well.

I suppose I should close this exercise out somehow. In terms of performance, the TOBS was back of the pack. This isn't a damning assessment though as it still performed perfectly fine. Joint first are the Trumpers and ES creams. They both performed excellently.

Scent wise, I can't choose a favourite. Each of these is different and brings something unique to the party.

So what have we learnt from this? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Just buy the 3 creams and add them to your densely populated dens.

I used my Mondial 1908 Bergamot and Tangerine cream today, I face lathered but will bowl lather in future as I have broken the tube lid, either that or transfer it into a tub.
