Day 5 of lather experiment

leave a comment »

Today I used the first of the two shaving creams: CS 1 Violet

  1. Effect on skin (dryness, etc.): no problem
  2. Quantity of lather (how easily it lathers up): Lathered much better than any of the soaps (which were, I think, made with an eye to working the lather up in a lathering bowl). More lather, and better lather, than the soaps.
  3. Quality of lather (slickness): slickness was fine
  4. How well lather lasts: lasted well through the shave, and lather on face stayed wet and dense

On the whole, I liked the shaving cream quite a bit better than the soaps, as you gathered. Excellent shave, and my appreciation of the Futur (and the Swedish Gillette) grows. Finished with alum bar and Taylor of Old Bond Street No. 74 aftershave. Really a BBS shave this morning.
