I shave twice a week and until recently I had been doing so using multi-blade cartridge razors.
My skin is on the sensitive side and I have always shaved using cold water (when it is hot I suffer from skin irritation)
My first shave with the R41 head was a pleasure. Lots of blade feedback and with just one WTG pass I had a near BBS shave.
Most importantly it was an irritation and nick-free experience.
Thumbs up to Muhle R41.
After using cartridges razors for a couple of decades I decided to purchase a DE razor again.
This razor has a good build quality and offers an excellent shave as long as you use the correct razor blade brand. In other words some blades are harsh on sensitive skin - so experiment with different brands .
In hindsight I would have preferred a longer handle ( 95mm )

I'd definitely recommend this product, although it should be noted that it does maintain a very strong smell of peppermint, rather than pure tea tree to my nose. Of course, it's mellowed out by the vanilla which is great. It almost smells like Christmas for your beard, which is great. Refreshing for the skin too. The smell fades away within a couple of hours, though, you should be oiling up your beard a few times a day. The only reason I wouldn't give this product 5 stars is because I've tried other Beardbrand products before which are of a higher standard than this one. Temple Smoke in particular is currently my only 5/5.
I have been curious about the Faena soaps for a long time, and now that I have finally tried one, I am disappointed.
There are so many good artisan soap makers on the market today, so one of the things that can make a shaving soap stand out from the crowd, is the scent.
I think I like the scent of Ionian, but the strength is below medium - the scent of the soap base actually overpowers the mint and mastic tree.
The post shave feel is good, but I feel like the soap could use more glide.
Overall, a forgettable soap.
Ένα καθαρά ελληνικό σαπούνι με άψογες ξυριστικές και μεταξυριστικές ιδιότητες.
Υπέροχο Ελληνικό άρωμα μαστίχας, ιδιαίτερο άρωμα που δεν βρίσκεις αλλού παγκοσμίως.
Το ξυράφι γλυστράει απαλά και το σαπούνι δεν το αφήνει να προκαλέσει τον οποιοδήποτε ερεθισμό.
Αρκετά δυνατό το άρωμα μένει ακόμα και μετά το ξύρισμα.
