To even things out, this week I am going with Valobra Cologne. I believe I needed a reminder of how good this soap is. This soap flat out performs. The scents still goes to CRSW.

I used MWF for the last 6 days. Very enjoyable , I found no problems in lathering, ( I bloom)
And use a badger brush, face lather only.

Been using Arko for a whole month and the tube still has a good amount left. Shaving has gone back to being boring, so I think I'm going to give up on trying to finish this tube since there's probably several weeks left at the rate I'm going. It does okay, mind you, just a nondescript scent and no more menthol (burned off with age I guess?). It lathered quickly enough this morning that I was able to shave in a hurry before work.

Next up, Haslinger Salbei.

Haslinger (with tallow, haven't tried the reformulation) is still one of my favorites. The sage has nearly zero scent, which is a bummer, but I whipped up a quick lather today in a rush before work and it was nearly as fast as the Arko cream, but slicker and nicer post-shave.

Time to start again. I'm going back to the Haslinger Salbei, mostly because it doesn't have a good "home" (just a puck I dry out and store in the wrapper) so since it's still in a mug I'll go back to it from earlier this month.

I'm still on the Haslinger sage. I think it is slicker than Sandalwood and seaweed. It feels like it has lanolin based on post-shave but I know it doesn't. Still half a week to go but I know next up is my trusty Palmolive stick. Those never fail to impress me.

I finished the tub of CRSW Savon No.1. This week I'm using an old favorite, GFT Violet PP version. I used a Shavemac 3 band to start the week off right.
