My newest shave-cave addition is a Lemon Zest shave cream that came to me from the Handsome Rob Shave Company.
This is my first time using a shave cream; I usually use a puck of shave soap, badger, or boar hair brush and bowl routine for shaving and looked forward to trying out this new (new to me) shave product.
The new shave cream instructions say to take a dab about the size of a nickel and apply it to the face with fingers or a brush.
I used the brush option and promptly dropped the nickel sized dab of soap on the floor. The second dab was applied directly to my face with my fingers.
Once I had it smooshed around a little with my fingers I went at it with the shave brush. Using a circular motion I whipped the shave cream into a beautiful and light lather.
And I have to say, I have a winner here. Totally different than the ultra thick and slick Stirling Soap Company (which I love), this stuff is fluffy and light with a great stick-to-the-face ability. The rich lemon scent made me feel like I was lathering with lemon meringue pie! It truly smells delicious.
And the shave I got from it! Incredible. My cheeks were as smooth as the proverbial baby’s bottom. I do admit that I used a new Super-Max platinum razor today as well so that may also have contributed to my superb shave. However, for now I am crediting the Handsome Rob Lemon Zest Shave Cream.
So, in the spirit of the season of giving, I asked the good folks at Handsome Rob if they would like to help me with a giveaway and they agreed! They have provided me with a container of the Lemon Zest shave cream and an after shave soother to giveaway!
