First time using the Gillette New OC head Paul @pjgh very generously sent me, and there's no way I could assess a razor just after one use but my initial impressions of the razor are very favourable. It reminded me quite a lot of using a Old Type, but I found the New a more efficient and smooth, like with the Flat Bottom Tech I was sent, I can see the New becoming one of my favourite razor heads. A smooth and comfortable 2.5 pass shave today with a very pleasing lather as well, Brian's SS soaps always seem to produce a slick glossy lather with little to no bother.

Have a good day gents, I hope you enjoy the sunshine.

Aftershave Special Thayers Mix + Hyaluronic + Reuzel Wood & Spice
Finally get to travel for work. A quick island shave in preparation for a pleasurable underwater work.....lather just nice with pleasant scent and very slick.
Shave with razor paired with blade was smooth and comfortable. 3 multiple passes for a DFS++ result with no issues.
Just slap on cooling Thayers then soothed by Hyaluronic and Reuzel. Rating 9/10
Felt good and ready to meet my underwater friends. Unfortunately encountered am storms...pm was much better condition.....

Starting last Saturday, one full week with the same kit. Great shaves throughout, but noticeable improvement in managing the water content in the brush, it is capable of holding vast amounts of water. The lather improved, and as a result so did the shave. That was a good week.
