NightShave²


My first shave with the Semogue Owner's Club Badger brush and T&H West Indian Limes cream. Mere words cannot express how amazingly this brush and cream performed together.

Holy Shit, Batman!

I didn't 'break-in' the brush. I soaked it in hot water with my shaving mug as I do for any other shave. Three shakes to rid it of excess water and an inch of cream in the mug. 60 seconds produced the wonderful cream you see below. 

Applying the lather to my face was soft, warm, and oh-so inviting. No scratchiness with proper backbone.  The hairs bloomed into a subtle flower of virgin badgers and aromatic lime cream.

For a moment I became lost in the intoxicating scent. Imagining myself galloping along the beach in the Caico's islands. Enjoying a fresh squeezed lime while gulping my island rum with utter abandon.

Nary a care in the world.

+1  I just found it a tad too 'scrubby'. Enjoy the brush.
