Week 4 Day 4
Proraso White Preshave, for today shave it’s not mandatory. But why going without the extra cuddle that also add freshness and the tea scent is good with lime. In addition some menthol cool from my home made Menthol Dope Oil.
My choice for today soap is Captains Choice Lime. The last version (not the RR one).
This is a great soap that I really appreciate from the first shave. This soap has many strong points that are worth your mention.
First of all its a croap and I like it, I prefer this kind of texture by my genes.
Second it lather wonderfully, rich, creamy and lasting lather.
Third the scent is fantastic. As Lime and lemon liver I can say that the scent it’s not dish soap Lime but a zesty, delicate and natural Lime. You want to couple with sugar and mint just to have a mojito shave. I do mint and lime today.
Forth it’s the post. Few can do better in sny price tag. It’s probably the rich formula, you could not even use the after shave. I do because I like it…
Fifth. I love the tub. Bigger than usual has its reason and I like it.
Omega S-brush is a synthetic workhorse from my favorite brush brand. I xn say that this synthetic boar is a plain straight simple effective brush.
And it’s to me the best synthetic for the money. A little money.
Fatip and USA Personna Blue Super are still going strong and sharp. Today a light weep because I was distracted. A nice shave indeed.
In conclusion an ever green Proraso Splash, pimped with extra menthol and the excellent Balm from Stirling, the Glacial lemon chill. Perfect end I’d like to say.
