Declaration Grooming’s Milksteak formulation: A must-have soap, today the Cuir et Épices version, with the Lupo and a gentle brush

leave a comment »

The gentle brush with the snakewood handle is from Strop Shoppe back in the day. Declaration Grooming’s Milksteak soaps are generous with the lather — always an ample supply in the brush. Perhaps they are simply easier to load. This soap also leaves the skin feeling wonderful. Truly, anyone who uses a shaving soap should try one of the Milksteak soaps.

I like the fragrance of Cuir et Épices as well as the lather. The Lupo has a lot of blade feel, but it never seems to nick and does not feel threatening — and it does a very good job. I would prefer flat ends, but the rounded ends are a minor inconvenience.

Three passes left my face smooth and (thanks to the shaving soap) soft and supple. I applied a good splash of Geo. F. Trumper’s Spanish Leather aftershave, and I’m reading for a momentous and historic day: the first time a US President has been impeached a second time.
