Pre-shave: Dr Bronner's Magic Soap, lavender
Lather: Crabtree and Evelyn Sandalwood soap
Brush: Turkish No7 horse hair brush
Razors: Merkur 39C slant-bar and Parker 22R - both loaded with Personna Super Medical Prep blades
Post-shave: Alum block and Proraso Liquid Cream Aftershave
Last shave with these blades - starting to tug a bit in both razors. Nice blades though, definitely worth trying. The shave it self was a damn fine one, as pretty much every shave has been after I switched to DE razors.
