Saturday evening

Mike's Natural Lime soap
Big Rooney
Henkel's Friodur 6/8
COBigelow Witch Hazel Skin Tonic

I dialed the water down a bit more. Mike's made a great lather with no more water than Harris does. Using the same product every day is a good way to learn a lot about it. Mike's: excellent lather, and I love the way the lime fragrance shines through all the way to the end. I have learned that some soaps keep me looking forward to tomorrow's shave. Mike's Lime soap keeps me coming back for more.

Sunday evening

Mike's Natural Lime soap

Mike's lather and the quality of the cut continue to excel. That lime scent is so fresh and strong my mouth waters as if I've just put a slice of lime in my mouth.
