Saturday:

Omega S-Brush, S10018, red
LEA soap stick, nueva formula, con glicerina y lanolina
Lord Smart razor
Spoiler blade
Target witch hazel

Second shave with this new brush, face lathering a soap stick.
Yesterday's first shave was face lathering w. cream and a few bristles, 5-10, were shed, none today
This brush is very soft, but can provide a bit of scritch with the right stroke.
Face lathering with a Bestshave Nr. 7 boar brush works a bit better, but this brush can be made
to work, along with my Muhle hjm black fibre brush. The fast drying properties offset the
technique needed for face lathering.

Overall a DFS, BBS in some places.
