BBS with experiments

More experiments. The Wife found a little dropper bottle for the cocamidopropyl betaine so that it is easier to add a drop or two. And I continued using my current Jlocke98 pre-shave.

The two drops of cocamidopropyl betaine seemed to indeed help the lather become somewhat thicker, but I need to try it more. Just for comparison, I rinsed out the brush and made for the second pass a lather from Creed’s Green Irish Tweed shaving soap, a truly top-drawer soap. The Creed’s lather seemed better (as well it should), but it was hard to tell with a single soaping. Tomorrow I’ll try a bit more cocamidopropyl betaine on a different soap (with a different brush).

Three passes with the Wilkinson Sticky holding a Feather blade and I have a smooth face with no nicks. A splash of Floris JF, and I’m ready for the day.
