Another shaving cream test for me this evening...Palmolive Menthol...
  • Usual pre-shave wash with ash Brito Glyce soap
  • Palmolive Menthol bowl lathered with Phoenix AA 'Green Ray' synthetic
  • EJ89/Nacet/Razorock titanium
  • Cold rinse and alum
  • Osage Rub post-shave splash

Excellent shave cream, lathered fast and very nicely with the synthetic brush (but synths do seem to be particularly well suited to creams). Not a massive menthol hit but I made up for that by using Osage Rub (just starting to get into a new bottle). I didn't bother with any EDT because, as you will know if you have experience of Osage rub, it will do to most fragrances what the Hulk did to Loki in that Avengers movie.
I'll also mention that for the last couple of years I have not used any under-arm deodorants or anti-perspirants, but instead use products like Allume di Rocca...basically it's just alum in a plastic pot. It's a very non-invasive way of inhibiting under-arm bacterial growth and of course you can rub it over your face after shaving if you're so inclined. As such I reckon it makes a great travel combo deodorant and post-shave item(y)

That's my shave tip of the month...Good evening to all:)
I stopped using deodorant spray a few years ago.

Thanks patw. Yes, I've used that as well. I assume that it's all the same stuff...just alum shaped like a roll-on...but I'm sure there are claims about manufacturing processes that some brands use to justify higher prices...I mean, 'Allume di rocca' sounds really posh don't it? It does work though!

You know what? I've moved to synths to protect the badger, boars and horses; now I'll move to cardboard to reduce plastic waste! Is this an Amazon cardboard box...i.e. ten times bigger than it needs to be?:unsure::)

No, :) the shape of the stone is rectangular with a rounded tip and fits snugly in its cardboard box 75g in weight. P.
