    Brush: Knotty Badger Battle Scarred Batman Brush
    Razor: 69 super adj. 9/9 still at 3 ATG under the nose.

    Software:

    Still not sure on the SCS Lime extract, a little too musky for me.
    YMMV? I don't think so.

    Armani asl
    Clarins asb

    The more experience I get, the more I see the differences between blades. Today the new Merkur did seem to be dragging quite a lot and it was nowhere near as nice a shave as it would have been with a 7 o'clock. So I think I finally see why they have a poor rep on here.

    The Armani asl works well enough but is so strongly scented I can still smell it on my own skin 8 hours later: couldn't wear a cologne after this one.

    This morning's shave:

    Merkur 23C Razor
    Astra Blade (First shave)
    B&B Essential Brush
    Art of Shaving Unscented Shave Soap

    Couldn't really get a decent lather out of the shave soap (my fault, in all likelihood), so after the first pass, I added some AoS Unscented Shave Cream to superlather.

    Three passes: WTG, W/XTG, ATG
    Touch-up pass.

    This was my first trial with the Astra blade, and having only the Merkur and the Crystal Platinum blades to compare it to, I can't really say that I like them based on this morning's shave. I can't say that I DISLIKE them, either, because there was little to no irritation, no nicks or cuts, and as close of a shave as I'm used to getting. The act of shaving just felt... weird. Something that I'll have to experiment with, as I'm not sure if it's the blade or the lather that I made that was affecting the feel of the shave.

    Still working my way through a sample pack, one blade at a time.

    Pen's Extract of Limes EdT

    The QED Brushless Cream worked very well. It's almost unscented but I did catch a whiff or 2 of sandalwood. It did the trick -- I was in a hurry this morning -- but it was a little thick for my taste. It took a little more time to clean my razor afterwards. And it's just less fun not using a brush.
    Interesting, didn't know QED made a cream. Is this a one-off?

    My first few experiences with astras were the same. Just kinda roughish, like my skin was really aware of the blade's edge. They got steadily worse...
    That's similar to my shaves with the Gillette New Improved head. Just doesn't feel very smooth on my skin, even though I don't necessarily end up with a worse shave than usual
