Now that I know the weeks theme I'll be sure to use my smaller items. This morning's shave went ok but I still cant get the hang of my straight. I know how to navigate my Fatboy though and that proved good enough to get me a 3 pass near BBS. (I get lazy around my jawline lol.)
In other news I'm about 1 or 2 shaves away from finishing my first tub of soap ever! Awesome feeling! Makes me feel like I need to buy more which is always a good thing. Hope everyone's Monday went well!

First outing with the new soap. It is an all natural soap made with tallow and lanolin. The scent of it is great. The orange/cedar accord gives it a great freshness and the pepper grounds it with a subtle spice. My first pass was not great because the lather I'd gotten was too airy leaving it thin and unstable. So I reloaded the brush and worked the lather between shaves. Pass two was great. The lather worked up to a nice creamy meringue with good structure and stability. After the second pass, I relathered as a post-shave and let the lather set on my face as I cleaned up the gear. By the end, my face was feeling very soft and incredibly well hydrated. I still need to spend some time with the soap, but I think it's a definite keeper. And with the orange and cedar notes, how could I tie it all together? Montale Red Vetyver has me smelling great!

He saw a lawyer killing a viper on a dunghill hard by his own stable; And the Devil smiled, for it put him in mind of Cain and his brother Abel.
