I use hot water to wash off any shave soap then dry my face with my shower towel, apply alum, if I have any shave balms or aftershave splashes I rub one on my face. Lately it's just been the alum and done.
Ì had the best shave ever today. Generous loading of mdc rose. Lovely rose scented lather . Afterwards i had luscious laher left so I covered my smooth face with it whilst I çleaned brush . Rinsed off and then applied trumpers coral skin food which has a very nice rose scent.
Absolutely perfect tion.
