Impression

I am really getting the hang of face lathering with this synthetic now. Initially, I found it far to "flinging" for me compared to the badger. Now, I'm finding I can gauge the wetness just right and face lathering with a softy like this is just lovely.

You might notice this is a different GEM Damaskeene from last night. This one is quite late, perhaps even beyond the 1919 merger with American Safety Razor Co. since it is no longer a "Use only with ..." advertiser, but simply (from the cutout) GEM Damaskeene Blades ... and carries the self same handle of the slightly later GEM New DeLuxe.

Another smashing shave ...

Hard to tell just how cooling the Aqua Velva is after a face-freezer like NSS Ice & Slice, but it is very welcome - much like Brut in terms of scent, more burn to my skin, more cooling and all round just really classic.
