The Solar Flare and the Dead Sea, with the Baili BR171 and Vide Poche

with 6 comments

After three shaves with shaving soaps that require a generous amount of water, I thought I’d balance things with a shaving soap that requires you to be stingy with water. Phoenix Artisan’s Solar Flare is fine brush, and I shook it well before loading with RazoRock’s The Dead Sea shaving soap, having learned by experience that a brush that’s even slightly wet makes a lather too wet to do a good job.

Baili’s BR171 razor is superb and for $6 you can’t beat it (and indeed, you can’t beat it a substantially higher prices): three passes to a BBS result, and then a splash of Chatillon Lux’s Vide Poche aftershave, and I’m set for the day. The Wife is taking today as a holiday, so it has a very Saturday feeling.
