I shaved a fortune
I'm glad that method worked for you. It even works with softer soaps... I just smear them into a thin lather in the middle of the bowl, add some water and let the soap soak while showering.So for yesterdays shave I took the advice of @Phoenixkh concerning Canada Shave soap. I scraped a few thin flakes into my CaYuen bowl and let my AP Shave synth soak for a few minutes. I then proceeded to whip up a pretty good lather that was good for my usual passes and some buffing. This worked much better than swirling the brush on the soap and then bowl lathering. This should work with the rest of my lather bowls as well. Thanx Kim.
The rest of the shave involved my Athena razor, a new Wizamet and listening to the new Stones record, vinyl of course. What a nice way to kick off the day. A lovely shave finished off with my alum bar and Versace after shave balm.
I also received my Stirling soap order consisting of Gin & Tonic, Executive Man and...Sheep.
The Gin & Tonic has the strongest scent in the tub, followed by a milder smell from Executive man and then Sheep which smelled like...well, sheep. I like all of them as far as aromas are concerned and am looking forward to using them. Still waiting for my Areffa soaps to arrive from Ukraine.
