I usually have pretty good shaves.  But every once in a while the stars seem to line up and I get an exceptional shave, even with products I’ve used before.  My best shave this week used Mama Bear’s “Dragon’s Blood” shave soap, a Simpson’s Rover brush, my trusty Merkur Progress, Ursa Major’s Face Tonic, and Taconic’s after shave balm.  Let me highlight the Mama Bear soap.
