A bit of a mentholated kick to start the week, and also using the TSN LE brush on my face for the first time. It has gotten three test lathers so far; one with pure glycerine soap, one with Mike’s Unscented and one with Col Conks Bay Rum.
The TSN LE brush is… <drumroll> …very nice. A bit of a lather-hog, and needs more breaking in – but I can see it’ll blossom into a great brush after a few more shaves, as long as I load it heavily.
