Proraso aftershave splash
On to another new soap today with the Reef Point Dragons Blood. This has a really nice scent which is quite unusual compared to other soaps I have. But I do like it a lot.
I loaded up the Rooney Emillion brush which had been soaking in warm water while I showered and gave it a quick squeeze and shake so it was just damp. The soap loaded easily and after about 30 seconds of loading I started face lathering.
Unfortunately it all went wrong here and I started to get an irritated feeling on my skin. The lather was really nice though so I pushed on for one pass, but couldn’t go further than that. I suspect that it was the vanilla in the scent that may have caused the irritation.
I finished the rest of my shave with another new soap, Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Speakeasy. No issues with that soap and the rest of the shave was drama free for the remaining two passes.
Good performance from the slant and Wilkinson blade.
I finished off with a good splash of witch hazel on a cotton pad to ease the irritation and a splash of Proraso aftershave and both of these have helped ease the irritated feeling.
Shame as I really liked the scent of the soap and the performance was good. I’ll definitely try some other scents in the Reef Point range.
No picture today as I changed a few things from my original picture due to the issues with the soap.
