    Garrett @gwsmallwood what do you think about that Brutalt Bra soap? Only four ingredients? Sounds interesting. does it have a scent?

    I've only used it a few times. It was part of a PIF offered by @Linuxguile . One of the times I used it, I had some redness in one area, but I wasn't sure if it was the soap or not. Andrew mentioned he had a reaction to it, so I'm being cautious.

    It lathers like a champ. Quick to load, easy to build. It's scent has quite a bit of Pine to my nose. Generally not my favorite scent, but I don't mind this one, so it must be nicely balanced with the other scents in there. I haven't used it for a head shave yet, which is the real test for any soap for me, so I'll reserve final judgement for now...

    The numbers on your adjuster are crisp. Is it restored, original?

    I gave all my non-synthetic brushes a cider vinegar cleaning. Today's lather was flat. Not the soaps fault. Gonna have to fix this because I like my lather juicy, slightly fluffy. The finish was still DFS.
    Another day, another shave.

    Garrett, what are you using as a stand for your Fatboy? I really like that.

    What kind of scent does Jeremy Street have? I've been curious.

    Light barbershop type scent. Very similar to WSP Barbershop if you've ever tried that.

    It ain't easy being green. First try with a Sputnik. Not bad, but it kinda felt like it might bite me at any moment.

    Haven't tried WSP, but I really favor a Barbershop scent. I have Eton College now. Like the soap, but it's a bit floral. Thanks...Now back to Fattys.
