I was describing my shave to a friend, and when explaining the "post"/after-shave process (that's after telling her I'm shaving with TOBS lavender cream), I told her: A cold water splash. A bit (not too heavy) of Proraso Dioibarba (which follows all of my shaves). A generous amount of Lilac Vegetal (I mix it 2 parts Veg to 1 part water). A few drops of patchouli oil rubbed into my face/neck to "give it that patchouli note". I said "patchouli note"! What has become of me? I look in the mirror, and it looks like me, but surely, pod people have abducted my former self! Anyway, she actually thought it was pretty cool, but seriously, this shaving process can take you in unexpected directions.
