Prep- warm shower
Razor- Merkur Futur
Blade- Gillette Rubie (2)
Brush- Trafalgar T3
Soap- MDC (citrus sample)
A/S- Epsilon Mediterranean blue

Great shave today. Didn't need to rush so took my time and enjoyed every second. Loved the MDC soap sample. I get why it's so popular. Yes it's expensive but I might need to add it to my rotation.
Splashed on some Epsilon and I was done. Didn't even need any balm. Effortless bbs.

MdC seems expensive when you first look at it but it lasts and lasts and hardly seems to go down so it works out to be great value for money considering what a quality soap it is. :) P.

Really enjoyed it. Scent wasn't what I would normally go for but it was lovely. Really does seem good value. 7.5ml sample and I will probably get 4 or 5 shaves out of it. Definitely will be ordering some soon.

How is the Irish Coffee shaving soap? Does it smell like real Irish Coffee?
Hi and thanks for asking! To my nose and mine wifey, it does smell of a rich aromatic creamy sweet coffee. When I first open the tub it in the bedroom...it smell entirely of it. Now only smell in the bathroom during shaving time. It remained a rich sweet creamy coffee scent on every shave. I am not so sure about Irish Coffee scent as I haven't smell it before but perhaps it is...
I really love the scent and save it to use sparingly as I bought only a 2oz sample...
