A “plain” Strop Shoppe shaving soap

leave a comment »

SOTD 16 July 2013

The soap today is the “regular” Strop Shoppe soap: no tallow, not Special Edition. It’s just plain old superb shaving soap. The 2011 Pogonotomy horsehair shaving brush, by Vie-Long, immediately created a fine lather, and three passes of the Progress—the modern-day version of the Apollo Mikron I used yesterday—again resulted in a BBS face. Perhaps some of that is because I used a Gillette Rubie, just as I did yesterday.

Face smooth, a splash of l’Occitane Verbena completed the shave, and we’re off and running.
