Greetings,


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.
:cool:

Everything you mentioned about the soap is true and I can vouch for that. Its a great soap, but I will say make sure it's the one in the tin as pictured and not the one in the cardboard box.

Simpsons Chubby No1 / Maggards 2 band
Cyril Salter Solid soap
Schick Type F
Schick Proline [ 5 ]
Myersol Antesol A/S Lotion

Compared to the likes of my Favourite Injectors [ single blade use] such as the Injecto-Matic/ E2, the Type F is extremely
mild. However, though a Shave takes longer the F is such a delight to hold and Shave with that it is one of my favourites.

Nearing the end of my Injector rotation and being up very early, I decided that as no rush I would use the Type F. The Shave was very nice and time did not seem to matter, so I was able without any problems to get a top notch finish, the equal of those that I get with the Injecto Matic or E2.

Loving that razor Mike. :)
 
11/1

Warm shower, Bulldog Original Face Wash

Cold water from tap
KOS pre shave oil
Ingram shaving cream
Body Shop synthetic brush

Wilkinson Sword Classic
Feather (1)

Osma Alum Block
Old Spice Original AS
Bulldog Original ASB

I only bought the Wilkinson Sword Classic as a razor to use if travelling. Less than £5 with WS blades included. Very little blade exposure so thought I would try with a Feather. Not the greatest shave but acceptable and for the price not bad at all.
