Still trying to stick to my 3 soap rotation, as hard as that may be. I’ve feel off the wagon a bit and bought a few soaps and razor handles yesterday but they were at a very good price.

Whipped up a nice larger with the Duke and Fresco combo today, this is a very underrated soap and definitely one I can recommend if you want to try out a good quality artisan soap. A word of warning though it’s a deep rabbit hole to get into and you’ll want to try them all, think of this as a gateway drug.

Nice slick lather with a fresh kind of scent with a touch of cool mint, definitely a nice scent in my opinion.

The Schick glided round my face with ease and left me with a near bbs finish.

Rounded off with a splash of the St James aftershave splash from Taylor of Old Bond Street. Again a really nice fresh and rich scent that lasts a good while and really does leave the skin with a nice soft feeling. The TOBS aftershaves leave a great post shave feel. If you ever get the chance to visit their shop in London make sure you have a good smell of their scents.

Myrsol Formula C

This is the third soap of my three soap rotation, one with tallow! This is a very nice scented soap which has a cherry tobacco type scent but is quite sweet smelling as well.

Very good skin care from all the good ingredients in this soap, it leaves the skin feeling very well nourished.

Easy to whip up a really thick lather with the huge “kong” brush from Stirling Soaps. Very nice results with the Red Tip and again very close to a true BBS. The blade felt good throughout but I binned it after this shave just to not risk a bad shave. I have plenty of these blades so no point trying to squeeze another shave out of them. They were one of the first blades I bought in bulk and I remember getting quite a few shaves per blade back then.

Finished off with a sample of the Myrsol Formula C splash, good skin feel with no alcohol burn at all and a violet scent much like the old Parma Violets sweets you got as a kid. I never liked those sweets much and I couldn’t see me getting a full bottle, but if you do like them you’d love this aftershave.
