Pre-shave: Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap, lavender
Lather: Crabtree and Evelyn Sandalwood soap
Brush: Turkish No6 horse hair brush
Razors: Merkur 985C with a Trent Platinum and Parker 22R with Personna Super Medical Pre
Post-shave: Alum block
The combination of lavender and sandalwood was too great a temptation – and the shave itself was pretty durn good. I really enjoy having the ability to mix and match razors – one aggressive one for the initial stubble removal, one milder one for the second and sometimes third pass.
