It don't matter if the lather cup I use is a bright pink snack bow from Ikea. It don't matter if my brush is a reasonably cheap one from Body Shop. It don't even matter that my bathroom is a 'three toilets, three showers' shared ablution container that - frankly - is a bit run down. What matters is that it's five minutes of ManTime, and a link to my more or less daily routine at home. Try that with a spray can full of foam and plastic razors with five blades...
For those that are curious:
- Parker 22R safety razor - considered to be a somewhat aggressive razor, but it suits my face just fine. Nice long handle, easy to change / clean blades.
- Feather Light blade - claimed to be the sharpest blade there is. Might well be, todays blade have seen 10-12 shaves already and is still sharper than my gillete ever was.
- Proraso shaving cream w/ eucalyptus oil and menthol. Large tube, long lasting, smells and feels good.
- Piece of Alum on a string. Stings, but helps seal the nicks and cuts really good.
