Tuesday:

Gillette Model #58 & Gillette 'Swede'
Simpson Duke #2 Best
Trumpers Rose shave cream
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Taylors Sandalwood

A fine shave but this Trumpers Rose cream is definately not as rich and concentrated as the D R Harris's Rose. Granted that this Trumpers is from a tube whilst the Harris's is the potted version and I have consistantly found the potted version of creams to be a little 'better' than their tubed counterparts. But still, the difference was distinctly noticeable and served to highlight comments I've made regarding how this Harris's cream is the most similiar to the old Coate's and other English creams from a decade ago.

Good morning. Wednesday:

Jaggerooney w/Dorco 301, #1
SR 3722
Harris Rose
Thayer's Lavender witch hazel
Harris Pink
English Fern

The performance of my pot of Harris Rose has deteriorated as it has dried. It was from the initial run and performed very well when new. Now, the lather doesn't hold up between passes. This is something that has not happened with any of my other creams that are in a similar state.
Best,
Chris
