Wee Scot, Stubble Trubble’s Up and Adam, Rockwell R3, and Speick

with one comment

The Wee Scot is an appealing brush, I find, and I very much like Stubble Trubble’s Up and Adam, which has a fragrance of coffee and vanilla. The ingredients:

Stearic Acid, Distilled Water, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Sodium Lactate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Glycerin, and Fragrance

A mentholated version is also available, but I’m not that big a fan of menthol, so I prefer this. And with the Wee Scot, I had lots of very fine lather.

Rockwell’s R3 “setting” did a great job, as usual, with no problems at all and a very smooth finish, to which I applied a splash of Speick, whose fragrance is also very appealing, particularly in the spring and summer.

Something I meant to mention yesterday, but forgot: a nice finding by Craig B, who found that using Kiss My Face shaving cream as a pre-shave works extremely well. KMF, as he points out, does not provide much cushion, but it is very slick. So he uses a thin layer of KMF on his wet stubble and then applies lather over that. It works a treat, he finds.

And in fact my treasured MR GLO works by (a) helping the stubble absorb water (soap reduces water’s surface tension) and (b) adds some slickness. I think KMF would be even better at (b).

Worth a try.

  1. A squirt of unscented KMF goes in all my wet lathers. It heat stabilizes the scuttle contents too.
