A shave as close as a Brazilian

Have a great one you wonderful people and I love you all

I wasn't expecting to enjoy the R2 as much as I did. It's an ATT - I shouldn't have doubted it.

I love the smell of The Dead Sea but I felt some irritation by the second pass and a bit of frag burn from the splash. I've never had this before from this range. Gutted.

Boycie, the Dead Sea soap is the twin of Santa Maria del Fiore Sapone Da Barba as I am sure you knew and is easily one of the top five non-tallow soaps that I have ever used (#1 being Sudsy Soapery). Perhaps the irritation is because you shaved too close? :unsure:

I don't think it's a closeness thing - it's a chemical type burn I've had with other scented soaps that haven't agreed with me. Different to the razor burn type feeling.

Threw things I'm wondering about - I) I wonder if the properties of a soap can change over a few months thereby impacting concentration levels? II) We've just got an inflatable hot tub that I've been enjoying for the past few days. I'm still working out the chemical balance of the water - turns out I'm shit at chemistry. I wonder if the repeated exposure to chlorine and low pH water is increasing my sensitivity? III) I may just be getting more pathetic as I get older.

Did you get the optional slide with it? ;)
