Rooney Style 1 Size 1, Mama Bear Hydrogen Fragrance, Rockwell 6S, Fine Fresh Vetiver

with one comment

I think glycerin-based shaving soaps are very much underrated. The passion for the past decade has been tallow-based shaving soaps, but I could not ask for a better lather than I got this morning from Mama Bear‘s glycerin-based shave stick. I also like the fragrance of the Hydrogen stick, but really can’t identify it (illiterate nose). I’m pretty sure it’s not hydrogen, though (hydrogen being odorless). The site describes it thusly:

Top fruity notes of apple, grapefruit, peach and leafy greens; with middle notes of lily, lavender, rose and violet; and finally base notes with amber, sandalwood, and raspberry musk.

The lather was at first quite thick—almost paste-like—because I used a brush that was merely damp to start with, but I added water to the brush and worked it into the lather, developing more volume and better consistency, and repeated. The lather was a very nice consistency at the end, quite a good volume, and slick. I was impressed, in fact—a very fine lather indeed.

Three passes with the Rockwell R3 baseplate left my face perfectly smooth (and unharmed), and a splash of Fine Fresh Vetiver finished the job.

This is the way to start the day. And now I drive TYD to the airport. A good visit, enjoyed by all.

  1. I was thinking the same thing a couple of days ago when I was using my Mama Bear Rosemary Mint soap.. It really provides lots of nice slick lather .. and I love the smell!
