The new Lea puck...first time with it,not good results.I used a stiff Semogue Owners Club brush and distilled water.The lather was sub par.I will try again on Wednesday with a softer,fuller silvertip and hope for better results...Smells great by the way...

Good luck with the Lea Classic, a little weak in the performance category, IMO. But I guess it could be operator error on my part.

I decided I enjoy the Marlborough more than the others from DRH.
My favourite DR Harris soaps are Arlington and Lavender --- nothing else from anyone else comes for me. I still do like the performance of the Almond --- just not as keen on the scent. As Gordon notes, it's a older style scent.

MWF today.

Kiss My Face Key Lime cream this morning.

Each time I use a KMF cream I come to the same conclusion: while I have over 20 soaps and creams, they are simply there for the sake of variety and the enjoyment of using several quality shaving products. None of them perform, at least for me, any better than this inexpensive, readily available cream. Will I pare my collection down to just KMF? No, but if a good shave was the only goal, I certainly could.
Best regards,

Basil

Wendell I quite like the scent of Harris Almond but I'm a bit old school myself.

Tabula Rasa Steampunk shaving cream soap. My appreciation of it is kind of growing, little by little.
