Impression

Well, the Nanny's is wonderful! I used the goat milk and absolutely loved it after a PSO* of olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil and essential oils of ylang ylang, patchouli, grapefruit and Olbas Oil. It's one of the olive oil formulations, more like a cream than a soap, which I took to immediately. Great gloss, thick lather and very soothing. That'll be the goat milk.

With the grain twice on my trusty PolSilver Super Iridium which is now a little scratchy - it's good for 5 runs, for me, switched to a similarly used Wilkinson Sword for that I have found very smooth for the cross the grain, again, good for five runs. Just a little scratchy, it did the job. RIP both blades.

Finishing up, I splashed some tonic over** made from Witch Hazel and essential oils of grapefruit, lemon, ylang ylang, patchouli, tea tree and Olbas Oil.

I am seriously impressed with Nanny's and can't wait to try out the Ice & Slice. The lip balm is subtle, but perceptible - nothing like Burt's Bees with the smack in the face peppermint, which can burn the lips - Nanny's is a gentle kiss.

My Parat played very well. Nice razor.
