Return to the Phoenix shave: Honeysuckle soap, the Bakelite slant, and Cavendish aftershave
I kept thinking about the wonderful lather I got from Phoenix Artisan Honeysuckle shaving soap and just had to have more. The lather is really rich and creamy and my skin feels quite happy following the shave.
This morning I used the Omega Mixed Midget—boar and badger—a doughty little brush that does a fine job and holds plenty of lather. I wet the knot well before I shower because of the boar content, and the brush easily created another wonderful lather. I’m not buying soaps any more, not all that much, but I may have to get another tub of the Phoenix Artisan soap in a different fragrance. It really does strike me as exceptional.
Three easy passes with the prototype of the Phoenix bakelite slant: no problems, easy shave, perfect result.
A good splash of Cavendish, and we are well on our way to the weekend.
