Lads, Shavistos, Senators all -
Third day straight of this wet shaving nirvanic experience and have yet to injure myself. Passes are getting smoother and more detailed each morning, and you gotta love the early-morning little "scritch-scritch" sound as your beard comes off.
My little CVS Pharmacy shaving kit is holding up admirably - the pokey little boar's brush, while not poofy looking like a badger might be, is lathering up fantastically and the soap they include has a decent lather to it - smooth, not dense, but paints the house like a champ. Not bad for 7 bucks all-in.
I've been pawing at my mug all week like a smitten porcelain curator handling ancient Roman statuary.
Quick question, though - the buoar's brush seems to have it's bristles clump up a little bit, even after serious washings/rinsings and being completely dry the next day. No bad smells, no loss of hair, just doesn't look afrotastic like what the badgers resemble in the pics. Is this just a quality of the boar's brushes in general?
Anyway, had my great shave, off to have my great day. Cheers, gents!
