July 11 - Time to visit Dr Jon. Rockwell 6C/Rockwell SS French Vanilla (JR#72) brush DIY PSO Dr Jon's 1803 soap ALum/Thayers/ AOS PSB I was a little reluctant to try Dr Jon's soaps. For some reason, I thought they might be just another simple ingredient list, vegan soap. I have not had lots of luck with simple ingredient list soaps. Because of a winning PIF, I decided to give it a go. Thank you SHAVEWIZARD420 I find the more complex the list, the better the chance that they are good. This soap was excellent! The scent is a little odd and i find it to be a complex of fruit and florals. Site lists it as . I am not in love with the scent but it is OK. Performance was great. I wet the brush and did a single shake and squeezed the water into my bowl. With damp brush, I loaded for about 20-25 seconds. I must have had over a tablespoon of water in there and proceeded to whip it. The resulting lather was nice and thick to my surprise. It also was very slick. This soap, I believe, is the older formulation since the ingredients do not match the current site's listing. If they found a way to make this stuff better, my hat is off to them. It already was very good. When I got some of the lather on my hand, even after rinsing, I had plenty of residual slickness. 6C got a BBS in 3 passes. Today with an early morning deployment for work and the need to drop my daughter off at camp, I was in a rush. I think the entire 3 passes took 6-7 minutes. It was my fastest shave with a DE to date, I am sure. Alum was tingly and only in a spot or two was a bit on the stronger tingly side. Excellent shave in all. On an aside, I think my short bout with the SR has improved my DE shaves. Maybe I am more focused or better at 'feeling' the blade or what I am not sure. So far,it seems my shaves are improving.
