Pre-shave: Dr Bronner's Magic Soap, peppermint
Lather: Mike's Natural Pine & Cedarwood Soap (sample)
Brush: Omega Shaving Brush #10048 Boar Bristle
Razors: Merkur 985C with a Trent Platinum, and Feather Popular with a Feather Hi-Stainless
Post-shave: Alum block and aloe vera
My second shave with one of Mike's soaps. Got a better lather this time - not that the last one was bad. The Feather Popular keeps amazing me, a very mild shave from a blade that is very aggressive in my other razors. A Good Shave™.
