In my constant voyage of discovery to new shaving soaps, the road is as bumpy as life.
You have depths but also highs.
There are shaving soaps that you want to throw in the bin after opening the packaging or after one use, because the smell and/or the quality is absolutely insufficient.
And the journey can only be sustained if there are occasional real winners.
And today it was once again the case because the Dead Sea Shave is a fantastic soap at first use.
The manufacturer says the following about the smell: This is the Maelstrom fragrance-dive into the intransigent whirlpool of Spearmint, lavender and menthol crystals.
And he is absolutely right in this is a fantastic fragrance.
For connoisseurs this fragrance reminds me of the shaving soap from Smooth Operator, namely Lavender, Spearmint & Palmarosa.
The shaving properties are also fantastic, especially the slippery glide layer is striking.
But as always, I only pass a final verdict after 5 uses and as I now estimate that 4 remaining very pleasant shaves.
Windrose D-04 stainless steel handle,
Tiger Carbon 3 holes 3rd x,
Proraso Con Olio di Sandalo AS,
TFS Crazy Sandalwood ASB,
Loris So Oud.
Brush and soap:
Luyixian Synth-24x68 and Proraso Red:
Proraso Red, my simplest and most chemical sandalwood, is a very useful soap. Can make a nice foam from it. You have all your tools under the white haze of the clay in this soft soap, but you can shave with it!
Knife and razor:
The Tiger Carbon 3 holes for the 3rd x used.
The Tiger has disappeared into the blade bank. No longer usable. In the 2nd round it was clear, that there was no longer a cut and then the skin started to feel irritated. So I grabbed another blade for the last round, a Gillette Rubie®. So, then you can tell a difference! The Windrose is a simple forgiving razor in the line of Lord L6, Merkur 38 and a R89. That kind of safe, dead sure razors. With a good blade you can shave with it, but not very controllable. Just it is, as it is.
Finally: Finally with the matching Proraso AS and TFS ASB finished and again taken care of the day in.
First a motorbike ride, then posting this and then lazy day!
After 10 consecutive shaves with a Mühle R89 w/o even a weeper (on a Merkur Travel handle, ASP/Ladas/ASP) yesterday back from.holiday.
Started with the Rockwell6C@4 (no idea which blade), and got distracted by little talking humans... small.cut.
Apart from that the 6c performs better under the nose (no need for Fusion trimming blade).
Pre: Proraso Pre green.
BRUSH: Yaqi Sagrada Familia
AS: Mennen blue (france)
No way I'm putting that on my face but might look what other kinds he sells, hope the base is the same.
