Unconditional Surrender, with the WSP Monarch

with one comment

The Wet Shaving Products Monarch is a superior brush. With a slightly longer loft than the Rooney Victorian, it has more give, which I like. The feel is quite smooth, and the lather this morning from Declaration Grooming’s Unconditional Surrender was everything one could want: fragrant, dense, and satisfying. One beneficial side effect of such lathers is that one spends more time in prep, enjoying the spreading of lather and working with it.

So when I picked up my Phoenix Ascension, the shave was effortless and the result a totally smooth face. I noticed this time with the Chatillon Lux matching aftershave lotion not only the fine fragrance but the very pleasant feel on the face, possibly from the calendula extract or cat’s claw bark extract. At any rate, a wonderful aftershave, of which they have several with the same basic formula:

Denatured alcohol, chamomile extract, calendula extract, witch hazel, aloe vera, cat’s claw bark extract, polysorbate 20, fragrance, vegetable glycerin, menthol

  1. I thought the double OC was hype, but I bought the Nickel plated version & “another winner.” People said it was too gentle so I used a Feather.
