AS - Signature Soaps Danum Patchouli Splash

2nd lather with the SS A Capra, and I have to say the scent of the soap isn't the best, it's very earthy but aside from this small issue and even though it's just early days with using it might be one of my favourite shaving soaps I have used for performance and post shave feel, and for my skin which is quite sensitive mid shave it sits on my face without the slightest bit of irritation.

The blade was definitely done on the last shave, but I was too lazy to take the blade out and picked up a nick on my second pass above the lip. I think I might have to adjust my passes a little, I don't think the area around my mouth can handle more than 1 pass if I shave daily. I was really impressed with the Lancet Super Platinum, not a brand I was familiar with and it's good to have a few alternatives to the Gillettes I seem to gravitate towards the most.

Finished the shave with a bit SS Danum splash, looks like another SS product which seems destined to be a favourite.

Anyway gents, have a good Friday and I hope you enjoy this new spell of warm weather.
