Pre-shave: Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap, peppermint
Lather: Mike’s Natural Soaps Peppermint & Rosemary soap (sample)
Brush: Turkish No6 horse hair brush
Razors: Merkur 985C with a Trent Platinum, and Feather Popular with a Feather Hi-Stainless
Post-shave: Alum block and aloe vera
My first shave with one of Mike’s soaps – scent was strong without being overwhelming, and while building lather was a bit trickier than the soaps I’ve used so far the result was more than decent. Pretty good shave too.
