Another unexpected but welcome extra-soft shave result

leave a comment »

Once again my shave was exceptional in the final result: skin extremely smooth and feeling quite soft. The Vie-Long horsehair brush certainly did a fine job, and Declaration Grooming’s bison-tallow soap is indeed quite nice:

Stearic Acid, Water, Potassium Hydroxide, Avocado Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Bison Tallow, Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide, Lanolin, Bentonite Clay, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract, Salix Alba L. (White Willow) Bark Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid

Note that this is their old formulation. The new one, which I’ve not yet tried but about which I’ve heard good things:

Stearic Acid, Water, Castor Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Vegetable Glycerin, Bison Tallow, Mango Butter, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Lanolin, Bentonite Clay, Yogurt, Buttermilk, Egg Whites, Coconut Milk, Goat’s Milk, Tocopheryl Acetate, Maltodextrin, Milk Protein, Salix Alba L. (White Willow) Bark Extract,  Arctium lappa (Burdock) Root Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Silk Amino Acids

I must try that at some point.

Credit must go to my Feather AS-D1 (one of the good ones — some were flawed and remarkably inefficient, thus the AS-D2), which for me has always done an excellent job.

But perhaps the decide factor is Chatillon Lux’s aftershave. As I note in this earlier post, this aftershave feels very pleasant on the face, and it undoubtedly contributed to the soft skin feel. Ingredients:

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