Homemade Lime first batch (11Nov13) soap performed great. I finished off the Brazilian Platinum Plus today and tomorrow's blade will be a Gillette Swede.

I tend to forget just how smooth the Swede is. The homemade soap is working out great.

Now that the homemade soap has moved back into the plastic bins, starting with today's shave I am going to vigorously attempt to completely exhaust a half of a large tub of my all-time favorite menthol shaving soap - Krampert's Frostbite. This is going to be fun! A great shaving soap, by the way.

Mastro Livi CarboInox USA

One of the benefits of this vacation is the lovely balcony I have in my room and from where I can enjoy a beautiful view. It is also a good place for shaving and - despite of the summer heat is quite intense here - sometimes you can enjoy a lovely breeze. It is an enchanting place for shaving and all I need is a basin with cold water and a hanging mirror. Not to mention the joy of shaving with this Mastro Livi CarboInox with scales in which it is inserted the USA flag, a razor proving - once again - the impeccable craftsmanship of this revered Italian artist and craftsman, a genuine expression of Italian style and art. The icing on the cake was my super cooling and freezing Thyrrenus aftershave, the perfect refreshing touch for this summer heat.

This morning with the Krampert's Frostbite, I confirmed I can get a great face-lather by simply wetting the top surface of the soap in the tub and then placing the Monster synthetic brush under hot running tap water, then giving it a shake before loading it on the soap for 15 seconds. No sloppy suds, just thick rich lather being created when the brush meets the whiskers. Great soap + great brush = great lather. I'm cheerfully looking forward to using this combo every day until the soap runs out. Only the blade will be changing.
