Shavette: Feather Professional Artist Club SS
Blade: Feather Professional Super (6)
Soap: Green Country Razors Frankinsence
Brush: Omega S
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Bravura aftershave and the beard balm - The Distinctive Goat Bourbon scent.
First impressions of GCR Frankinsence shaving soap was interesting. This is the only soap I have that has this scent not that it is a bad thing but the scent is unique to den and a welcome one. As I lathered this soap up in a bowl with the Omega S brush, I could smell the scent coming from the bowl. This scent isn't a overpowering scent but enough to let you know that it is there. The puck it self is a semi hard puck meaning that with a hard press of my finger I could just leave a finger print. How much slickness and cushion was there in my shave? Keep in mind this is my first impressions and as more use of this soap this may change but since I am shaving with a shavette, to me, it will be noticeable real quick if the slickness and or the cushion is lacking and ... the Feather shavette glided across my face with ease and with adequate cushion.
