Shaver: Merkur Progress
Blade: Treet Falcon
Cream: Lider Classic
Post shave: witch hazel, PAA alum, Van Yulay Mango Tango aftershave and Maestro's beard butter "Spirited Blend".
This was my first shave with the Merkur Progress short handle. I started on setting 5 for the with the grain pass, setting 4 across the grain pass then setting 3 against the grain pass with the Treet Falcon blade on it's fist use. A really nice shave. I didn't have any problems finding the angle with this razor. I like the weight of this razor also. It feels good in my hand.
The Lider shaving cream scent, per my nose, is citrus, minty fresh scent and I believe this shaving cream is made in Poland. Nice cream ... it can be found on eBay. The tube is 65 grams or 2.3 ounces which makes it easy to travel with. It comes in classic scent which is what I used today and also active scent.
I enjoy Van Yulay's aftershaves. The price won't break the bank the there are hoards of scents to choose from any time of the year. This Mango Tango scent could be considered as a citrus scent or perhaps a sweet island scent ... IMO.
