Edwin Jagger Aloe Vera sample (thanks, Phil)
'47 Aristocrat

Same setup as yesterday with one change. I used enough of the shaving cream to generate an excellent lather (funny how that works). Two passes and I'm smooth.

KFBR to finish.

After a week's travels, it's back to homemade soaps:

Mühle synthetic brush
Homemade blue cypress
EJ Barley Chrome
Gillette 7 O'Blue day 1
Mandom Lucido a/s

No review of the synthetic yet. But this will most assuredly not be its last use.
