Impression

I finally "got" face lathering a couple of days ago, so gave it another go ... it worked ... again, and so I think I'll keep going with that technique through my various soaps and creams.

Talking of creams, this was the first run with NSS Moroccan Sands, a cream scented with Oudh. Heavily woody and a scent which does not dissipate much through the shave, it provided a wonderful backdrop for Brut Musk, enhancing, even prolonging the scent of the aftershave.

I have to say, I don't think the blade is anything special but from a couple of pretty mediocre shaves with it so far, it does seem to like it's sibling razors. Gillettes in a Gillette, who'da thunk it? Close in parts, others no so close. Still, good shave with no issues.
