I still have a little bit of that. It was a cream, but is more like a soap now. Just a ring around the bottom of the tub.
Nice scent.

Rooney 3/3 Porcelain Finest (26/59)
XPEC Original shaving cream (first Forester Milan version)
Wolfman WR1-SB Antique Bronze/Darwin

An excellent shave. The first version of the XPEC is significantly better, for me, than the current one, and I am too old to worry about the risks of the parabens in it.

Floris Elite shaving cream (vintage)

The excellent ER brush, wonderful old Floris cream and lightweight razor provided another great shave. I know there has been a lot of argument, but for me the Wizamet blade seems to shave exactly like the Polsilvers.

Sunday AM 2019-11-03

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Stubby 3XXL Ivory Finest (33/52)
Houbigant Fougère Royale shaving soap (vintage)
Charcoal Goods Level 2 Stainless Steel/Beehive
Wizamet Super Iridium (11)
Houbigant Fougère Royale aftershave (vintage)

With first use of the CG razor, I got an easy BBS shave. It is indeed medium aggressive, giving me a couple small nicks. Its smoothness is about equal to that of the Raw RS-10, a little less smooth than my stainless Timeless or Wolfman razors. It gave me more auditory feedback than the others. The razor is quite heavy, and at the end of the shave the head stuck together pretty tenaciously when I tried to take it apart to clean the blade. For me, 3-4 stars out of 5.
