Razorocktober continues

Continuing the Razorocktober theme with at least one product per shave. I’ve decided to blog more shaves per post on the blog.

Whipped Dog High Mountain 24mm
Razorock San Valentino
Schick Adjustable @ 7
Schick Twin blade (1)
Arko Gold Power aftershave

First try of these twin blades, very nice blades indeed. I’m really liking the whipped dog brush. It worked up a really nice creamy lather with the San Valentino soap. Good results all round.

Razorock Chubby
Reef Point Espresso
Mongoose with Captain Sharp blade (5)
Jürgen Hempel Ti
YSL Le Nuit De L’Homme balm and EDT

Following the Razorocktober theme using the Razorock Chubby brush with the Espresso soap from Reef Point. The mongoose got the job done easy with the captain blade which didn’t seem as bad as it had previously. Nice slick lather from the coffee scented soap helped a lot. The scent of the soap is mostly coffee with a sweet caramel type of scent in the background. I’d say it was more cappuccino than espresso but either way it’s nice.

Finished off with a bit of the YSL balm just because it was there next to the EDT. A nice scent but it doesn’t seem to last more than a few hours on me. Even using the balm as well didn’t increase the longevity of the scent.

Reef Point Fougere Santal
Fatip Grande
Lab Blue (4)
Razorock Baby Blue aftershave

Nice shave to finish off the week and prepare for the week ahead. I was trying to kill off this sample of the Reef Point soap that I stuck in this oversized coffee mug a while ago. Didn’t quite kill it off so one more shave left in the mug. Great scent to this soap and I’ve got a tub coming as a present for me for Christmas. Usual great Reef Point lather with the nice fougere type scent with a bit of sandalwood. This pairs up very nicely with Brut as an aftershave but today I kept with Razorocktober and used the baby blue splash. That was it for this blade. I could tell towards the end of the shave it was past its best so in the blade bank it went.

Well that’s another few shaves down out of Razorocktober, I’ve managed quite well so far. I’ve been putting some thought into using some products in a small rotation of products which should hopefully help get some soap used up. As part of this I’ve stored a lot of soap away in a box out of the way to only use once I’ve put a dent in what’s left out. I’m thinking of taking that a step further by narrowing it down to three soaps to use for as long as possible. I’ll see how that goes and it might not make for good reading on the blog and posts might not be as regular but I’ll keep on posting pictures on Instagram along the way anyway.
