Shaving Product Review - K Shave Worx "Frosen" and
Guerlain "L'Homme L'Eau Boisée"
I recently got bitten by the #kshaveworx bug... At first by way of the Raspberry Vanilla review of the official NYC Meetup soap which was quickly followed up by my first exposure to Frosen as a sample. Long story short, I enjoyed the performance of K Shave Worx Raspberry Vanilla and the scent of Frosen so much that I picked up a full-sized tub and matching aftershave (as well as Berry Blast which I also reviewed). Frosen is a blend of red roses and fresh green leafy notes with a hint of menthol - basically like sticking your head in a florist's cooler case. With today's shave I'm comfortable that I have the soap "dialed in" now and it performed wonderfully. The aftershave scent, while robust in strength, doesn't have all day longevity - so I boosted the signal with some #Guerlain L'Homme L'Eau Boisée.
With yesterday's SOTD I decided to dust off the ol' #Mühle #R41 razor by cleaning it up and fitting it with a fresh #PolSilver blade. With today being shave two on the blade, it was a bit smoother, and made for another super close shave. Nevertheless, the R41 runs a bit hot as compared to milder razors, which is why it normally isn't an everyday razor for me. But this week I'm going to try it out. I definitely noticed a slight bit of razor burn, but not too bad... While K Shave Worx aftershaves aren't the most healing, the menthol in it (and the soap) really took some of the bite out of this dog. The #BSB Shaving Brush whipped up the fluffy white stuff in the #GTP scuttle.
As I wrote in my first Frosen review, I really like the scent as it's different than your typical rose-scented offerings. Not just the floral note but the green component as well as a bit of menthol. In fact, that's what I really enjoy about their products; relatively simple yet unique and robust scent profiles. Throw in the solid performance and excellent value, and it's hard not to recommend their products. I'll be reviewing Bumble Nuts and Grapelicious soon!
