Pre-Shave: Kiss my Face Olive Oil Soap, cold water Razor: B&R Adjustable (2/1) Blade: Ladas (1) Brush: Paladin Sumo Lapis Lather: Jabonman Lavender from 2019 Paste & Cut Meet-Up Sample Box Post-Shave: Alum, Thayers Original Alcohol Free Witch Hazel, South Australian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
I can't believe it has taken me so long to finally try a Jabonman soap. The sample came very generously donated from the 2019 Paste & Cut Meet-Up Sample box. It didn't say if it is the tallow or vegan version, but judging from the nice lather and the ease of lathering, I would guess vegan. The scent reminded me very much of Mike's Hungarian Lavender - all in all a lovely shave.
Pre-shave: Shower, Glycerine Brush: Yaqi 24mm Tuxedo Soap/Cream: Arko Razor: Rockwell 6C, Ikon Bamboo Handle (3) Blade: Perma Sharp Super (3) Post-shave: Cold water splash, TSW After Balm
First pass went well then went onto the second pass and I was looking for the blade fairies because it had felt like someone had taken my blade out of the razor. Yes the scent isn't the greatest but it's not bad especially when you consider the price point, it really does perform.
