Wet Shaving Products Monarch, Van Yulay After Dark, and the iKon Short Comb on a Kronos handle

with one comment

Van Yulay’s After Dark shaving soap is also better (for me) than the Hercules formula. After Dark’s ingredients:

Stearic Acid, Aloe Vera, Coconut Fatty Acid, Castor, Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Coconut-Emu-Babassu-Olive-Argan-Jojoba-Oils, Calendula, Extracts, Poly Quats, Sodium Lactate, Allantoin, Silica, Liquid Silk, Bentonite Clay, Essential Oil, and EO’s and Fragrance.

With the WSP Monarch brush, the soap was easy to load and made a very nice lather.

I used the Short Comb on an Above the Tie Kronos handle and got a good shave. The iKon Short Comb is somewhat similar to the RazoRock Old Type, but on the whole I prefer the Old Type to the Short Comb. And I also find the iKon 101 better (for me) than the Short Comb. That said, I did get a very nice shave., and at the end I enjoyed Van Yulay’s After Dark aftershave splash.

A good way to end the week. And backribs tonight…

  1. That razor gives me great close shaves, but it has more blade feel than most of my razors I tend not to use it as often as I might. Less comfort than the 26c affords. Closer shave though.
