It's been a while since the blue's goat milk soap made an appearance in one of my SOTD set ups, as always this chinese made soap provided me with a slick protective lather in no time, and leaving a wonderful post shave feeling to my face. I've recently seen this soap selling for £7-£8 a tin on eBay uk, which is more than double when i first bought some, fortunetely i've another two un-opened tins so i've got plenty to last me.A great chinese made shaving soap..If a shaving soap can near doubled it's price in two years, then it shows how good of a soap it is...Would i pay £7-£8 for another?..Probably if i really needed more, but to be painfully honest no,as i can get equally good soaps that cost less,Williams mug shaving soap my recently re-discovered wonder is one that comes to mind, which i can get 3 packs /cakes with shipping from the US to the UK for £7.45p...However, i would highly recommend Chinese Blue's Goat Milk soap to anyone who is thinking of buying some it's shaving performance is outstanding, as is the post shave feeling to the face, with milk/citrus clean fragrance...I'm hopeless at describing scents.
Second use of the weishi 2.0 adj,increasing the settings to wtg,5. xtg,5. atg,+pick ups 6, which i found worked wonderfully for me.
I've bonded with the weishi adj very quickly, i find it comfortable efficient, and a pleasure to use..what more can i say.
The 7'0 Clock SharpEdge blade's performance was superb on it's ,fourth and final use, resulting in another comfortable 3 pass + pick ups,very near bbs shave with no errors to report...A very efficient smooth blade, that i intend to add more often to my SOTD set ups,as well as the Gillette Super Stainless (Green) another blade i've only used a few times.
Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of Palmers ~ Cocoa Butter Formula 24 hour moisture.
My face is feeling smooth, & smelling devine.
Enjoy your day, ladies & gentlemen.
