The Big Shave Silvertip LE
Soapy Science Hanalei
Myrsol Plastic Shave
I got some of the Soapy Science soaps as part of the ATG shaving forum group buy last week. I tried the Citrus Lolly one last week which smelt really nice, but this Hanalei one is even better.
I put a little water on top of the soap and went to the next room while my brush soaked and I could smell the scent from the next room! It’s a really nice floral scent which is inspired by Hanalei Bay.
The soaps were part of a young girls school project and as her dad is a keen wet shavers they decided to make a shaving soap for the science project.
The soap is quite hard compared to most artisan soaps so you need to make sure you load up well compared to softer soaps.
You’re rewarded with a really nice slick protective lather and good post shave feel.
The Blackland Sabre is a fairly new addition and I’ve enjoyed the shaves I’ve had with it so far. I’m still working on the angle a bit compared to older Gem razors. It’s a really smooth shave and you can barely feel the blade.
Myrsol was the closest match I had to the soap and the menthol was just nice on a hot day.
I didn’t get time to write this up yesterday but it’s given me a chance to post today’s arrival in the post. Some shaving soaps from South Africa from River Valley Trading. I’m looking forward to trying these out.
