Razor: Shavette/Rockwell 6c on 3
Blade: Gillette Nacet, Astra Green
Soap: Wickham Soap Co Classic 24
Aftershave: RazoRock Emperor, Stirling Soap Iced Pineapple

#samplesaturday I’ve been looking forward to trying this Wickham sample since I received it, another Creed Aventus inspired product and my first go with a Wickham soap. I loaded up the sample in my lather bowl and went to work with my Omega Boar. I found it lathered fine, but didn’t give me the nice big puffy cloud of lather I love. When I hit the face though, it really lathered up nice and was plenty cushioning and slick. I could definitely get the Creed Aventus vibe but I found the scent not quite as powerful as my RazoRock and Stirling Aventus types. I decided to give the shavette another go as I work my way into the straight world. Got bit once really good but otherwise I finished one pass without irritation like my last go. I finished up with my Rockwell for the next two passes and got a BBS shave. A great way to start the weekend like a boss. I closed off the shave with my RazoRock Emperor splash (still one of my top 3 in the den) and the Stirling Iced Pineapple balm. A fantastic shave. Hope everyone on the road today is travelling safe and has an fantastic Christmas with friends and family.
