Nice aromatic coffee scent from soap and lather. Lather quality is somehow mediocre. Shave with razor and blade...very nice, smooth and comfortable. 3 multiple passes with satisfactory result. Seems like there were some tiny creepers but upon closer inspection, there were none. Post & Aftershave was great! Rating 9/10.

How is the Irish Coffee shaving soap? Does it smell like real Irish Coffee?

Post - Alum followed by some moisturiser with SPF

I managed to nick my moustache area on the first pass. Didn't touch the area forth rest of the shave, it still feels really smooth. Other than that, a three pass shave. I decided to try and tidy up the back of my neck this morning as well. I just went by feel and was quite successful.

Brush Yaqi 28mm Synthetic
Razor Pearl OC with Yaqi Handle
Blade Polsilver 11th use
Post & Aftershave
Ice Water Rinse + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Aqua Velva Musk
King of slickness is this Arko. Lather not as thick but still creamy. Scent pleasant.
Shave with long ignored razor paired with blade cuts through nicely but razor feels a bit rough. Interestingly, blade feel is very smooth. 3+1 multiple passes with no weepers nor irritation. Good close shave...bbs to dfs. Icy water rinse really feels way better than alum. Followed by Thayers then Hyaluronic and AV Musk...feels super nice and soft. Rating 9.3/10
