Old Spice...

A couple of days a go I received a delivery of three 30g tubes of Old Spice 'Original' flavour shaving cream and gave it a go late yesterday evening...

Software: Glyce Lime pre-wash soap | Old Spce Original shaving cream | Shulton Old Spice AS splash

Hardware: Hammered copper bowl | Razorock Starcraft synthetic | EJDE89 + Nacet blade on Timeless Titanium handle

This cream had a very pleasant but very mild scent and a small amount created a lather that would easily cover multiple passes. It was thick and cushiony and overall a really nice shave in two and a bit passes with a blade I'd already used 3 or 4 times. The 30g tubes are only travel size and that is precisely how I will use them...in the dopp kit(y)

I've also tried the lime version... same kind of performance but not much of a scent. Worth having though for a guaranteed comfortable shave.

Have a great weekend all:);)

Shaving in a smoke filled bathroom this morning I had the silkiest of shaves. The Ikon bamboo handle was put to far better use today with the OSS head. I cannot honestly tell the difference between the closed an the open side as far as results go. I had a comfortable and close shave with no damage to any part of the face. Shaving bliss. I’m loving the strong scent of the Solstice too.

Two strokes in and I knew the blade On The Streamline was off. As I was lathered to go The !912 came to the rescue, and the finished Shave was not bad for a quick one. Quite odd that some Blades in the same pack give up very quickly, though not a regular occurrence for me.

Most of my Badger brushes seem to do that. The lather goes in the brush rather than on it. Still perfectly usable lather and gets on the face with ease. That was also the biggest difference I notices with my only synth brush, the lather sits on its rather than in the brush.
This is my 1st SHD Silvertip brush....so very dense and kinda...ermmm how to say it....floppy? Perhaps too much water trapped inside...will give it another go tomorrow...

razor - Yaqi Katana - single edge - on a ES s/s handle

@Satanfriendly - C. - if you haven't tried a Katana - I seriously recommend it to you in your quest for Zen razors - the sound of one edge shaving - Om mani padme hum. :)
I will will be lead by your recommendation and have a good think.

This Zen is turning more in to an impossibility (an anti-Zen). Which in theory equates not to a search but more an assault on my bank account.
$9 delivered from Aliexpress for the head only
Guys, just FYI, Aliexpress vendors conduct online LIVE sales on selected days. You can check it out with either their apps or the site. Yaqi often has their LIVE sale on Friday from 1600pm to 1800pm their local time. Brushes and razors go from between 20% to 50% to 99%. I missed today's session due to work. Last week missed the limited number SE complete razor for 99%.
So far, I snagged 2 synthetic brushes for only USD10 and 1 slant head for USD4 all delivered.
If you like better quality brush, Oumo held their LIVE on Wednesday. I dare not enter...lest I am tempted.

Good shout - there's also flash deals that last between 24 hours and 5 days that are worth looking out for. These are for specific items - not to be confused with Ali Express' DFS frequency sales
