Omega Mixed Midget, Barrister & Mann Roam, Gillette NEW, Phoenix Cavendish
Today’s shave was effortless and satisfying, the very sort of shave that makes a routine well-loved.
The little Omega brush shown is a mix of boar and badger, so I wet the knot well before the shower. Barrister & Mann’s Roam is a fine shaving soap and I easily got a really wonderful lather. Though the brush is small, the knot has ample capacity for more passes than I will ever make.
The razor is a short-toothed Gillette NEW, which (so far as I can tell) shaves exactly like the long-toothed Gillette NEW: extremely comfortably and with great efficiency. I easily achieved a BBS result, to which I applied a splash of Phoenix Artisan’s Cavendish.
My skin feels not only totally smooth, but also very soft. I think this soap has some magic in it.
