Shaving Product Review - Barrister and Mann "Veyver Santal" and
Geoffrey Beene "Grey Flannel"
Like my previous sandalwood entry (http://tinyurl.com/p7q9jvs) this shave is all about the ... And today it's #BarristerMann Vetyver Santal - a really nice scent combining a "traditional" smoky variety of sandalwood with the green notes of vetiver. During the shave, each took turns in my nose but overall they melded beautifully. I dig it.
The performance of B&M soaps continues to impress! Like my most recent review of Arctique (http://tinyurl.com/osefs8s), the soap creates a creamy lather that's quite dense - the cushion was exemplary. While the slickness was quite good but not as impressive. Whereas Arctique contains loads of menthol - it can be detrimental to lather, and that seems to hold true to a (slight) degree here. This un-mentholated soap is more like how the rest of the B&M line should perform... The lather quality is just a touch better; both are awesome.
As for the hardware you might notice something going on with my #SOC brush ... I'm "training" it by drying it with a hair tie around the knot. It reigns in the crazy bloom. Though if you like to beat on a brush in a bowl or face lather, it'll just bloom out again. Good to catch the really wild hairs though - and make sure you comb your brushes now and again as well. The razor was my #Mühle #R89 with a #PolSilver blade on shave two. The #GTP scuttle made whipping up the suds easy.
A really nice shave today, with a great soap from B&M. The scent is really nice as was the performance. If the scent speaks to you, this would be a fine choice. Personally, I'm convinced and I might have to check out other (full-sized) offerings. Shave on!
