Happy Bungie Day! If you're a fellow Guardian or Spartan then you know what I mean. I thought in honor of the day that it would be most fitting to use Stirling Soap Company's Light-Ish Red software. This soap's label is Halo themed and seeing as Bungie birthed Halo, I thought it perfect for the day.
As you may or may not know, I absolutely love Light-Ish Red. It's in my top three scents from Stirling S.C. And I have a lot more than just a few of their epic releases to compare with. To me, it's just amazing! I'll say it's very bold and beautiful. So what if it just so happens to have an icon like Chief on the label? That just makes me like it even more.
Though you can't fully see it the pink brush is a recent addition that I won from AKA Brushworx. I knew immediately that I wanted to give it to my generous and loving lady. In the past she has bought me many pieces of software and hardware helping to further my journey down the rabbit hole that is wet shaving. How can I not want to repay her in kind? Not only that but she has a real need for this brush.
I've been steadily and slowly, and I mean slowly inching her closer and closer to becoming a traditional wet shaver. So, this awesome Spring Pink brush is a perfect addition and matches the pink Lady Gillette I previously gave her. Here's to hoping this will do the trick.
Never the less she let me use it for my shave and I couldn't be happier with its performance. The AK4 knot is very soft and a real joy to use.
I did a three-pass shave on 7, of course and earned a sweet bbs. I topped things off with some more Light-Ish Red and am ready to go kick some...
Happy Bungie Day again my friends. Enjoy your shaves.
