Mr Pomp and Phoenix Artisan Honeysuckle, iKon 102, and Phoenix Artisan Cavendish aftershave
Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Honeysuckle shaving soap leaves my skin feeling exceptionally soft and pleasant—plus the lather is excellent, which today I worked up using my Mr Pomp brush. I assume the skin effect of the soap is due to its ingredients:
Potassium Stearate, Glycerin, Potassium Cocoate, Aqua, Potassium Kokumate, Sodium Lactate, Potassium Shea Butterate, Potassium Castorate, Sodium Stearate, Potassium Avocadoate, Parfum [Fragrance]
Coconut oil, kokum butter, shea butter, castor oil, and avocado oil: yeah, that might account for the nice effect on my skin.
And the resulting prep is exceptionally good, it seems to me. With the iKon 102, perhaps my favorite slant, I had no trouble at all during the shave and the result was a very easy BBS. Some have found that the 102 tends to clog, but I’ve realized that this problem seems to occur for me who shave only once every week or two. Those who shave every day or every other day don’t encounter that problem, so far as I can tell.
A good splash of Phoenix Artisan Cavendish, whose fragrance is long-lasting, and I’m ready for the day.
