Very impressive performance by Mickey Lee Soapworks shaving soap

SOTD 11 Nov 2014

Today’s shave is extraordinarily good. Part of that is the Shavecraft #101 razor with a new Personna Lab Blue blade, but I have to say that the incredibly good lather from Mickey Lee Soapworkss The Drunken Goat, a tallow and coconut oil soap with (as you see) castor oil, shea butter, and lanolin. The fragrance is down to earth and comforting, somehow. I really admire this soap, and I’m pleased it’s sold now in tubs rather than as pucks.

The Rooney butterscotch Emilion had no trouble making the (wonderful) lather, and the #101 open comb continues to impress me with its comfort and efficiency. Three passes, BBS result, and I used the sample of Mickey Lee Soapworks Italian Stallion aftershave milk—and I liked that too. I think I’m getting fond of aftershave milks.

Highly recommended soap. We are lucky to enjoy such a great selection of fine artisanal shaving soaps.
