Soap: The Soap Exchange Blood Orange
Brush: AMACK 24mm
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Brut aftershave.
This morning's shave was with The Soap Exchange's Blood Orange. This is the first time I had tried this soap as well as this scent so here are my first impressions. The 4.5 ounce soap comes in a plastic container with labeling only on the lid. This round chunk of soap appears to have been cut and then placed into the plastic container instead of being poured. The soap can easily be removed from its container and placed into your favorite shaving mug if one desires to do so. To my surprise when I received the soap in the mail, as a bonus I got a 4.5 ounce tub of Blue Water scented shaving soap. Awesome. I bowl lathered the soap and IMO the soap appeared to a be thirsty so a slight learning curve. I only got one nick on my neck but that's not due to the soap, just me. Here's the description of the soap ... Blood Orange - Citrus blend of blood orange, tangerine leaf, Italian bergamot, and tangelo. Stay cool and smooth shaves.
