3rd of RR Soap/Croap tested. Save this for last. Yes...! Scent is nice, stronger than previous 2 but hmmm...still abit mild for my nose. The lather...another WOW! Easily worked up with brush in bowl. Thick, creamy and reasonably slick. Conclusion from all RR 3 soap/croap...lather quality is good but scent is too mild for my nose!
Shave with razor paired with blade is very comfortable. Smooth, sharp and hardly feel any blade. 3 multiple passes without any issues. Between BBS to DFS result. Rating 9.5/10

Shaving recipe for today.

Prep: Warm shower / Original Source ~ Tingly Mint & Tea Tree Shower Gel.


Cold wet flannel to my face.

Wilko ~ Men's Face Wash + shaving Oil.

Brush : Vie-Long Brown Horsehair.

Face Lather.

Soap : Boots ~ Original Shave Stick

Blade: Chinese Gillette Wilkinson Sword. (3)

Razor: Merkur ~39C.


Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade peppermint eucalyptus, Tea Tree , lemon essential Oils + menthol crystals Witch Hazel Mixture./ Boots ~ Freshwood ASL.

Nivea Men ~ Sensitive Cooling PSB.


The chinese GWS is still feeling smooth & efficient on it's third use in the 39c.

One thing i've noticed is my slant razors seem to dull some de blades quicker than others.The chinese & Indian made GWS blade, for some reason this doesn't occur.

Another pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Nivea Men ~ Sensitive Cooling PSB.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

Stay safe and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
