A close friend is currently working on the predictive modelling of a second outbreak of Covid for the Scottish government - they were given free access - to anonymised - results from Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England. Problem was - they had to rule out the English results - they were so flawed - not fit for purpose. False negatives - and - false positives galore - testing not to industry standard. The data was useless. - I.
It's no surprise that since the Brexit debacle and now a Boris Johnson government being run by 'No-accountability Cummings', I am embarrassed and ashamed to be English. If it were at all possible, I would vote for England to become part of Scotland, where there is a leader with two things this government seems to be devoid of: basic common sense and decency! (Rant over)

OK...political ranting over...this afternoon's shave was my first use of GFT Eucris. I had great hopes for this but here are my conclusions:

Fragrance: Excellent and pervasive, very traditional, Victorian or 'gothic'...I won't need air freshener in the bathroom for the rest of the day:)

Performance: Poor. Seemed to lather well but it dissipated very quickly and provided little cushion. Nowhere near what I expected from GFT :(

I'm glad I didn't fork out for the bowl as well...just bought a refill.

I thought I'd try and capture it's gothic scent in my photo:

The soaps seem to get poor reviews but the cream is really good

Thanks to the enablers (you know who you are) I've just had an excellent shave with this British soap. £4 from Amazon.
Easy loading from the bar, it produced loads of lovely creamy lather, taking a lot of water in the process. The slickness was pretty good too.
A lovely lime scent was very apparent throughout the shave.
I'm so impressed!!!
I might try it stick wise next shave.

It seems GFT soaps in general are more problematic than a duff MWF puck.

That sounds ideal mate - gets the tatts on show - say nothing - look vaguely dangerous - job done - you have passed your first module on how to be Glaswegian - I'll send you your certificate. Nobody will suspect a thing. :cool:

Joking aside - sounds like you are doing everything right - problem is - at this time of year - you are going to see 'normal' flu and colds kicking in - twelve months ago - we wouldn't have thought twice about it. Times have changed though.

If your throat is bad - I give you my patent hot toddy recipe - it will help and you'll sleep.

Take a large glass -

half fill it with whisky - the cheaper the better - anything blended will do

add -

the juice of two freshly squeezed lemons - or limes - if you are feeling exotic
two or three tea spoons of honey
about an inch of fresh ginger root - grated into the glass

top up with - warm - but not boiling water. Stir well. Drink. Go to sleep.

Take care mate - I.
Wow. Do you know my grandmother (long gone)? This was her surefire cold-fighting cure-all as well.

I was hoping the soap was good because I was looking for a new hard soap puck to put in one of my prized Boots soap dishes...if the performance of Eucris soap matched its fragrance then it would definitely be a winner. Guess I'll have to keep looking...but in the meantime that scent is enough for me to pull the trigger on Eucris cream! (y) (I hope that's enough to coax a smiley out of you Chris to make up for the sad face on my post! ;):))

Thursday, a little closer than Wednesday to the weekend but not quite there yet! Autopilot shave was needed so the Gillette Rocket HD which has patiently been waiting its turn got called up. Loaded up with a Gillette Rubie.

RazoRock Saturnia was the soap of the day with the matching AS. Powerful scent but I love it and as Fall approaches next week it’s perfect for this time of year in my opinion.

Lovely three pass BBS shave with no muss or fuss. Clean smooth and comfortable. Alum block indicated nothing at all which with the Rocket HD is to be expected! Topped it off with a healthy spritz of Bvlgari Man. Well that was quite a nice shave indeed. Enjoy your day and your shave! Stay safe.

Rating: 5 / 5

Razor: Gillette Rocket HD 500 1955-56
Blade: Gillette Rubie Platinum
Brush: APShave Co. 24mm Silk Smoke
Lather: RazoRock Saturnia
Aftershave: RazoRock Saturnia
Additional Care:
B.I.G. Co. Alum Block
Bvlgari Man
