Cold-weather shaving

leave a comment »

I haven’t been around really cold weather for a couple of decades—a bit more in fact—but Institut Karité is for me an exemplar of cold-weather shave products with its 25% shea butter content, both in the soap (in the little tub) and in the aftershave (very reasonably priced: it costs the same as other good balms, but for the price you get 250ml rather than 100ml).

Because yesterday was a rest day following a big (and delicious) Thanksgiving dinner, I didn’t shave, so this week I get two 2-day stubble shaves. I brought out the German 37 for today’s shave.

The lather, made with my little $32 silvertip from Whipped Dog (I think prices have gone up a bit) was excellent, and the German 37 is one of my best slants (and a bargain: you can buy the head by itself for $12).

A dot of Institut Karité was enough to apply plenty of balm, and my skin feels great now.
