Impression

Fast growth and it felt scratchy from the last run of a couple of blades which were honestly past their best …

Tonight, first run with a Sputnik Stainless and what a fantastic first run! Absolutely silent, so much so I had to double check that I had actually installed a blade. I had. I had to double take to see that I had the angle right. I had.

Smooth and silent … like Red October.

Nanny's Ice & Slice Shaving Soap is wonderful. Light on the menthol and just a spritz of lime to arouse the nostrils as the thick, creamy and strong lather goes on. This is not face freeze you get from Ingram's, but a gentle caressing as if an ice cube is being run over your skin as you go. Nourishing, the soap is a sheer pleasure to use.

Feeling very cool, it's time for some Quorum.
