Razor: Blackbird SB
Blade: BIC Chrome Platinum (1)
Brush: Oumo Chubby
Soap: Extro Del Don
Pre: Proraso White
ASL: L'Oréal Ice Impact
ASB: RSC

The Del Don reminds me a bit of the Pirata. I wouldn't say one is better than the other but there's no point in buying both. This is coming from the guy that puts scents in to three groups so take my comments with a pinch of salt. The notes are:

head: mandarin -petit grain -basil -lily-of-the-valley
heart: lavender-sage-thyme-cassis
background: amber-patchouly-guaiac wood

For the avoidance of doubt, I really like the Pirata and I really like the Del Don. The lather was excellent despite the efforts of the Oumo brush to ruin it. I'm not convinced I like dense stiff brushes.

Because of some new inclusions in the shave, I moved back to the standard handle. I used a BIC Chrome Platinum for the first time thanks to the generosity of B. @Palmolive fox and I'm really impressed with it based on the first shave. If it continues to perform like this, I could have a new entrant to my top 3 blades. 2 passes for an exceptional finish.
Thanks for the mention... The BIC C.P. Are really smooth and sharp, near 'Feather' sharp but with extra smoothness, which gets better on the second shave. Glad you like them
Regards. B

Mate - on the soap label - what the hell is 'Q10 Elastina?' Which is apparently new in the formula - I.

Thank you - never heard of it before - I'm obviously using the wrong sort of face cream - hence why I look every day of my 50 odd years - ha ha - cheers - I.

I emerged from the bathroom looking like a 12 year old.

I think it's more related to the two new chins I've grown and my homemade haircut rather than the Q10 though.

Cheers - everyday is - indeed - a school day - okay your soap has Q10 in it - but does it have snail secretion as an ingredient? I'm not joking - see here -


I didn't know whether this deserved to be taken seriously - apart from anything else - how do you 'milk' a snail - or do you just scrape it up? The mind boggles - evil laugh - you are going to want to try this aren't you? - evil laugh - I.

"CoQ(10) treatment promoted proliferation of fibroblasts, increased type IV collagen expression and reduced UVR-induced matrix metalloproteinases-1 (MMP-1) level in embryonic and adult cells. In addition, CoQ(10) treatment increased elastin gene expression in cultured fibroblasts and significantly decreased UVR-induced IL-1α production in HaCat cells. Taken together, CoQ(10) presented anti-ageing benefits against intrinsic ageing as well as photo damage. Interestingly, CoQ(10) was able to inhibit tyrosinase activity, resulting in reduced melanin content in B16 cells. Thus, CoQ(10) may have potential depigmentation effects for skincare. "

Well - now we know!

:oops: the lengths some go to with their artisanal products. I have images of this chap tickling snails in his quest for post shave feel!
