Wee Scot, Czech & Speake No. 88, Baby Smooth, and TOBS Sandalwood

with 2 comments

Now I remember how the travel tub of Czech & Speake got to the back of one of the lower shelves of the aftershave case: it’s not very good (at least not for me). It’s odd, given that it has a good reputation (so far as I have been able to determine) and it’s pricey enough. But it lathers indifferently and the fragrance is muted.

Still, I got an okay lather for the first two passes, though for the third I reloaded, and this time from Institut Karité. And the Baby Smooth did its usual excellent job. I’ve mentioned before that the Baby Smooth and the Dorco PL602 have a very similar feel and performance, and both put a major curve on the blade. However, there is the big difference of materials: when I went to remove the blade from the Dorco for packing, the threaded shaft just snapped off. It’s just a $4 razor, so no biggie, but OTOH it’s clear that the Dorco’s plastic is no match for the Baby Smooth’s aluminum alloy.

Three passes to a trouble-free BBS result, and a splash of TOBS Sandalwood. I think I might have one more application from that bottle, so it will not make the move.

  1. All hail Baby Smooth! It’s very light and easy to control. The knurling keeps it safely in the hand even when wet; and it delivers a fantastic shave every time! Also, which is very important for me, with sensitive skin, is the fact that you can go back over the same area several times without getting irritation! And ofcourse, fabulous price that worth every penny!
