Great shave today with the above combo. Last time I used this sample of LPL I was away on holiday and didn’t get time to blog about it. Good shave today again with it but I think I had a bit of trouble loading from the sample with my super silvertip brush. Previously I had used my 2 band New Forest badger brush which has a bit more backbone and a smaller knot. I’m going to try my Omega boar brush next time to see if that makes a difference.
I find this soap is really good and performs much better than MdC but with a similar herby mint scent. The lather is nice and slick and post shave feel is very good, not at all drying. When I had MdC before although it lathered easily I found it lacked slickness and dried my skin out.
Another great shave with the Standard Razor, it’s fast becoming my favourite razor and I’ve just ordered a second one in the raw finish with the stand on Massdrop which was a bargain. Although it’s a light razor I find myself BBS every time I use it with no hint of irritation. The vintage made in England Wilkinson blade is still going well on what I think is shave number 6 although I think it’s beginning to dull a bit now, I’ll try it for one more shave which may be its last.
Finished off with the Myrsol Agua Balsamica aftershave which is a good match to the scent of the LPL soap as its herby with a very refreshing menthol kick. As with all Myrsol splashes they leave the skin feeling great and the scent is still lingering now.
