Wee Scot, Nancy Boy, Baby Smooth, and Esbjerg aftershave gel

with 2 comments

No photo because my camera battery is dead and the charger is coming with the household goods. (It doesn’t seem to charge from the USB port.) But even without the photo, the shave was excellent: having very soft water is a very big positive.

And I continue to love Nancy Boy Signature shaving cream for all that I’m more a shaving soap kind of person. And the Baby Smooth did its usual smooth job: smooth in action, smooth in feel, smooth in result.

A little Esberg aftershave gel, and the day takes off: our household goods arrive today at the customs point of entry (the Victoria airport), and then is moved in tomorrow. I’ll be quite busy for a while, but things are looking up.

  1. We moved at the end of last year to hard water area: first thing I did was have a water softener installed. What a difference. Love shaving even more!

  2. In a hard-water area, a water softener makes an enormous difference. I had one when I lived in Iowa City, but in Monterey/Pacific Grove the water is soft enough not to require a softener, but the water is still somewhat hard. Here the water seems totally soft.

    As I note in the Guide, people accustomed to hard water are accustomed to feeling friction as they rinse off the soap, the friction being from the film of soap scum adhering to the skin. With soft water, the soap rinses off immediately, but there is not friction felt since wet skin is slippery. This creates for them the impression that their skin is still soapy (because they don’t feel the soap scum). Thus they get the idea that with soft water it’s hard to rinse away soap. It’s not. It’s easy. It’s just that no soap scum remains behind.
