Headshave today was with the Extreme III and Godrej shave creme.  For my head, that razor is just so fast and BBS every time.

Face was the Micromatic OC SE razor, new GEM blade, Mike's lemongrass soap, omega boar brush.  Even had plenty of lather left over.  (@warhawk - finally got the hang of the soap - it's a thirsty one!)

Dessert was witch hazel followed by Razorock aftershave wax.  Another quality Razorock product! 

A top quality shave, no cuts or irritation as usual.  Been a while since I SE shaved, but I'll give it a few days run out until my new toys arrive!

Two face shaves and one head for me to report on here!

Last night:
Head: Godrej cream, WS Extreme III razor
Face: Mike's lemongrass, DE89 razor, Astra blade, Omega boar brush.
Dessert: cold water splash, witch hazel, Boots fresh wood balm (I think that's the name, but not at home now to check!).

Today at gym:
Face only: Schick injector adjustable, Derby shave stick, Omega boar.
No witch hazel so just a quick rinse and splash, then some Turkish moisturiser I had in my bag (Acibadem cream).

@MikeKoz13:  Mike...I'm glad that you are finally having some time to enjoy your DE shaves.

@BlueBriz:  Brian.... I'm glad that ya got the Mike's Natural Soap to lather.  It is definitely a very "thirsty" soap but the results are super, creamy yogurt-like lather.

@SlySirHarry12:  Harry... I'm glad that your DE shaves are getting smoother.

Hey Brian:  I'm looking forward to your review on the goodies you got.  Most especially the razor and the 444 and the RazoRock Cumba Cheech.  Curious on how the 444's aroma and the RazoRock aroma and lather.

Briz..... I'm a big fan of Razorock products. Your box of goodies brought a smile to my face.

Why don't you tell the audience what's in there??!!??

OK Mike!

The soap is the Razorock La Famiglia Cumba Cheech Orange Blossom & Jasmine.  Like all other RR soaps I've used, it's top quality and easy to lather.  The Orange blossom is the main smell I can pick up, but there's a clear hint of Jasmine there.  It's very fresh smelling, and I've used it the last two days (it's VERY rare for me to stick with a soap for more than one day, i'm forever changing!).
The 444 balm is a very menthol aftershave balm.  The way I always use it is to just take a small blob (less than a pea sized) in my hand, then mix it with my aftershave of choice for that day and apply to face and dome.  It adds a nice cool kick to whichever aftershave you use, and does a great job of soothing the skin after a shave.  I haven't found the menthol to overpower any aftershave i've tried so far.
The aftershave is the RazoRock 888 Eucalyptus And Tea Tree Aftershave Lotion.  I just bought it on a whim because it was reduced to a mistake on the label or something like that.  You have to shake it before use.  There's an initial cool eucalyptus blast followed by quite a strong tea tree scent.  The scent doesn't last long, but it feels nice on the skin.
The two razors were the Mirrored Pole, which I liked the look (and price!) of but haven't tried yet.  I like 3 piece razors though, because I find they can get under my nose more easily.  The other razor is "Jaws," which is another 3 piece, this time an open comb model.  OCs are known for being a little more aggressive because they expose more of the blade than other razors.  Anyway, I've used it twice and got wonderful shaves both times.  It's heavier than you would expect but still very nicely weighted, and the two times I used it (with a Polsilver blade) I got fantastic nick-free, irritation-free shaves!

I'm a big RR fan.  For anyone wishing to start out with DEs, the Razorock models are excellent quality and very affordable!

Sorry guys,  that was a lot longer than I'd originally intended to write!

I've fallen off the wagon and haven't used the DE on my head in a week.  Two reasons for this: last Sunday, I was in a rush and gave myself three bad nicks and I've been really busy at work, so my morning shave time has been squeezed.  Hoping to restart the DE effort because I really miss the ritual and the super smooth result!

Thanks for the posts on shaving soaps.  I'm going to have to pick up some Razorock.
