The past several days have been a pleasant overall shaving experience.
Here is my kit:
Tabac soap stick
Tuxedo synthetic brush
Noxzema/Kai disposable twin blade razor
Superior 70 splash

The following lasts no more than about 30 seconds.
(EDIT: The shaving part of course lasts about as long as I want it to last, could be 3 minutes or much longer.)

I splash water on my face.
Then I hold the soap and the brush under the hot tap for maybe 2 seconds to get them wet;
rub the wet brush over the wet soap for maybe 3 seconds;
rub the brush over my face for maybe 10 or 15 seconds with absolutely no regard for whether there's suds/lather or not;
then I shave with the twin blade disposable razor.
Finally, after rinsing with a wet wash cloth and drying the face, a delightful splash of cool aftershave splash.
The result is a consistently satisfying shave.

Today's SOTD featured a nice vetiver soap. Looking forward to using it again and again. The previous soap had a good run for the past 45 days.
