Today’s shave: Rose

with one comment

I began with MR GLO, and then this Vie-Long badger+horse brush did a fast, efficient job of ginning up a terrific lather, though much credit must go to Geo. F. Trumper for their fine formulation. (This one is from a few years back—but I’ve not read of any recent changes in their formulation.) The rose fragrance of the soap is detectable but muted.

Three passes of the Slant holding a previously user Kai blade produced a smooth surface for a final application of Geo. Fr. Trumper’s Coral Skin Food, also a rose fragrance and, for a few moments, stronger than the soap, but quickly fading.

Good start.

  1. WOW!!! “GOOD START” YEAH! Been waiting to see that gold slant for some time now. Trumper has been good for me although I only have the one soap and no Coral Skin Food. The Eucris may not be traditional and even somewhat contriversial but I like it. I am also drawn to the brush handle but only have solid black (Should I want to try near replication of this shave). Who am I kidding. I can’t touch the shave You have enjoyed today. Really Nice LG!!!
