Nice lather quality but scent is too mild. Make it thinner and wetter but still nicely slick...especially for shavette.
Been awhile since last use the Shavette but not bad at all. The paired blade is really smooth & comfortable. 3 multiple passes with acceptable DFS on face to CCS on neck. No weepers nor irritation at all...rare indeed for straight shaving. Icy rinse was super good followed by cooling Thayers then soothed by Hyaluronic and Reuzel.

A wonderful Face lather today, the little brush holding enough for a 3 pass shave.
The Superinox lost its smoothness on the last pass so off to the blade bank in the sky it went.
I have decided to match up the Vintage Creams with some Tabac and the Lightly "clean" scented Gibbs seem to go quite well.
BBS and such a comfortable post shave finish.
A great start to the day.
I have to say i love this Slim.
Stay Safe and Enjoy your day

Razor - Merkur 34
Blade - Wilkinson (5)
Post - Alum followed by some moisturiser with SPF

It seemed I had a great voluminous lather at the start of my shave, yet after my second pass, I had to reload the brush as it was just disappearing on my face. I'd probably got too much water on it. Other than that a very nice shave, no feedback from Mr Alum.
