My other Monarch, J.M. Fraser shaving cream, Baby Smooth, and Myrsol Agua de Limon

I realized that I favor my other Monarch shaving brush and I think I know why: the knot of the other brush (see the photo for yesterday’s shave) is fluffier, and also the handle of the other has the interesting grain whereas this handle is a plain white. One never wants to judge merely on appearances, but think the other brush just looks better than this one. But this brush does a very fine job, this morning using J.M. Fraser’s excellent shaving cream: an enormous amount (1 lb) at a low price ($14 when I got it, $17 now). It has a light lemony fragrance, and it really seems to me an excellent shaving cream—and you can’t beat the price.

My drab Monarch created a fine lather, and the Baby Smooth babied and smoothed my face. I continued the lemon theme with Myrsol’s Agua de Limon.

It was really a totally enjoyable shave, and I set out on my morning walk in excellent spirits. I felt energetic enough to stride along briskly and finished my usual 3.2 mile route in 60 minutes rather than yesterday’s 63 minutes, which made me feel good. The distance is as Pedometer++ estimates (6700 steps), but the time is dead on.
