    Friday AM

    Hot shower
    Proraso Pre/Post in shower
    '63 Fatboy w/ Derby Extra blade (Day 4)
    B&B Finest Ebony
    HBS Lavender soap
    Thayer's Lavender W/H
    Pinaud Clubman Vanilla A/S splash
    SCS Lavender A/S milk :)() -- rinsed that off
    Anherb A/S gel
    T&H 1805 EdT

    I had forgotten why I traded away my tub of Taylor's Lavender cream... until this morning. The HBS Lavender soap burned the entire time, and the SCS Lavender milk burned like mad the instant I put it on... ended up having to rinse it off and followed up with the Anherb gel. I think I must have a skin reaction/allergy to Lavender EO. Anyone ever heard of that? It's a shame... I think I'll end up trading/selling my Lavender stash. :mad:

    The weird thing is... the Thayer's Lavender and MamaBear's Summer A/S (with Lavender and Rose hydrosols) don't affect me that way... maybe a certain strength or concentration of Lavender EO does it?

    @Baloosh: Could it be that Thayer's Lavender and MB A/S use fragrance oils and not EOs?

    Definitely possible.. I didn't even think of that.

    Don't know if I want to try to risk it with another brand or not... I'm going to give it a couple more tries and we'll see how it goes. I may find a solution, or I may end up trading/selling my Lavender stash! :eek:

    Jason, DR Harris lavender cream is poison for my skin---I never experienced such a rash and irritation in all the years that I'm shaving. Isn't that odd? AOS lavender cream, on the other hand, works ok for me.
