The second most divisive smell in the wet shaving world after Tabac. BS Maca Root - I love it! Awesome lather when combined with the Zenith brush. I do enjoy using boar brushes for my creams.
Geez all the lovely soaps you have and you have to use that muck ;)

The star of the show today was @BrianH Eboracum, although i do enjoy a minty shave the Eboracum takes it that step further with the addition of Cedarwood and that makes it for me as i feel it reduces the "sweetness" of the scent. So much so i have made my own take on it with an Argan Oil lotion.
I had copious amounts of wonderful lather to protect my chin during the shave, a little goes far and the resulting lather is very very good.
3 passes for a BBS finish today.
A nice post shave leaving me feeling very refreshed.
Stay Safe and Enjoy your day All

22 May 2020 – lunchtime :) .

1 days' growth …. no issues shave – the R89 helps, being a “benign” razor. Used the Astra blade for the first time – TBH can’t really tell if there’s a difference to the BIC blades I have been using regularly. Erasmic soap lathers very well – nothing special, an everyday budget soap.

Prep: Aldi Bath Soap & Nuage Shave Oil
Brush: Yaqi Rainbow 26mm
Razor: Mühle R89
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum (1)
Soap: Erasmic Soap
After: Cold Water Splash - Ajanta Alum - Autograph ASB
