Love Bombs with Fine slant and Grooming Dept Moisturizing Pre-Shave

with 2 comments

I believe that “Bombs” in the name of this shaving soap is a noun, rather than a verb (as in, say, “New Avengers Movie Bombs”), though certainly in some instances love does bomb, thus divorces. But here we are talking about explosions of affection, and specifically of a Phoenix Artisan CK-6 formula with this fragrance:

Dark Chocolate, Rose, Rosewood, Bergamot, Tea, Orange, Lemon, Black Pepper, Ginger, Palo Santo, Vetiver, Cedar, Tobacco & Rose Absolute.

The dark chocolate is present but somewhat submerged in the blend. Still, it’s a pleasant fragrance and with the CK-6 formula made a great lather.

I did use Grooming Dept pre-shave this morning, but tomorrow will switch back to MR GLO for a week for the comparison test. Despite the pre-shave, I did piick up a couple of nicks from the Fine slant, but that is on me (in both senses).

Three passes left my face totally smooth, and the combination of CK-6 and Grooming Dept pre-shave, my skin feels wonderful. A splash of Love Bombs — perhaps I should write “a stick of Love Bombs” — finished the shave, and the week begins on a pleasant note.

  1. Used the pre-shave this morning for the first time. Really made a big difference in the closeness and comfort. Enjoy the day.

  2. Very pleased to hear it. I have a review of the pre-shave to be published in Sharpologist day after tomorrow.
