The Peppermint Shaving Cream – which I got as yesterday’s surprise in the Solidarity Advent Calendar from Gifts & Care – was a pleasant surprise. With the help of a brush if created thick, abundant, creamy, and very pepperminty lather. Left my face feeling a little greasy, but not overly so. Not a bad choice, I feel, if you want a seasonal lather.

Shaving with things I gotten in the Solidarity Advent Calendar. The Proraso preshave cream reminds me of the Prep cream, which isn’t bad. The Mühle aftershave balm felt pretty nice too. Not impressed by the Mühle shaving cream though; no slip, no cushion, and hard to rinse of my vintage Schick.
