I must admit up front that I'm primarily a shaving cream guy - the only soaps I use regularly are in a tub. This allows me to grab the correct amount of soap and use my regular shaving bowl – which sits in another bowl of scalding hot water.
I wasn't real thrilled with the shave stick form factor because I like all of my applications with the brush to be very warm and I was only able to achieve this with the first application. It usually takes me 3-4 passes for a superior shave.
Charles is offering such a wonderful assortment of fragrances that I want to try, but don’t want to have to melt each into it’s own container.
Yesterday I came up with a way to have my soap and use it too – I melt it right in my daily shaving bowl. Because I preheat my brush in the bowl which sits in a hot water bath, it is warm enough to melt just the right amount of soap and provide enough hot lather for the entire shave. When I’m done I rinse everything out and am ready for another day!
