Cold and foggy this morning. Still there was a lot of foot traffic downtown. As cold as it is right now, it’s NOTHING like the madness I was dealing with this time last year so I’m not complaining! Seriously. Plus Chico gets to show off his outfits. He loves the attention lol
Had a good shave this morning. Pulled out that sample of Caties Bubbles Celtic Knot that I’d nearly forgotten I had. I really like how this soap performs. Since it’s a sample, I just press a quarter sized amount into the bottom of the mug and whip into it with just a little water. Get’s me a smooth, creamy lather with great slickness and decent cushion. The blade just slides through it with ease. I like the scent also, but it seems to disappear fast, which isn’t a deal breaker for me. Just means I don’t have to worry about it clashing with my after shave du jour!
Paired the Clix razor with a Treet Platinum blade. haven’t used one in a while so it was a pleasant surprise that it was as smooth and sharp as it was. Mowed through 3 days of prickly growth with no issues. No irritation, even in my problem areas. I don’t know why this blade fell off of my radar. Time will tell.
