AS-Barts Lime and a dash of Retinol

*I have this on loan and with the OC plate and the Gillette blade it performed well although amazingly noisy. Danum soap always in the first rank for results even though I’m not a member of the “wedding cake” school of lathering.

I'm turning my attention to a couple of Cloud blades that I have in ... this Super Stainless and the Bruce Lee.

Tonight, the Super Stainless which is certainly a sharp enough blade giving me my usual shave in one pass with a few touch-ups. It's not that smooth. Think Shark Super Stainless kinda harshness but certainly not as sharp; more akin to the Ladas or Rapira Stainless.

Good enough, though.

Prep: Shower pears soap and PAA cube.

Pre: PAA cube

Soap: Mike’s vetiver

Brush: Omega #625 silver tip badger.

Razor: Rockwell Model T

Blade: Polsilver

Post: Alum, Baxter’s aftershave balm.

Dialled it down to one and a half today, and finally feel I’ve tamed the beast. It really is a solid piece of kit. Today was smooth and sharp, and didn’t take a layer of skin off me! The Polsilver seemed to work best for me on this low setting and no weepers! I really liked the soap, a totally different smell to what I’m used to. The razor is a great piece of kit and has challenged me all week, but feel I’m just about getting to grips with it!
