Donga Shave at Camp in Great Sandy Desert

[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 174)]Prep:[/COLOR] Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Alt Innsbruck Emulsion
[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 174)]Brush:[/COLOR] Savile Row 3824 Silvertip Badger
[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 174)]Soap:[/COLOR] Wholly Kaw Kind of Oud
[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 174)]Razor:[/COLOR] Merkur Futur (2)
[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 174)]Blade:[/COLOR] Polsilver Super Iridium (1)
[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 174)]Post:[/COLOR] Alt Innsbruck Emulsion
[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 174)]Scent:[/COLOR] DR Harris Arlington

Back at the camp with the unholiest hard water. Trialled addition of Citric acid as a softening agent to lather water.
It made a tangible improvement to the lather - still not up to normal standards, but acceptable.

The improved lather allowed me to go for a third ATG pass, whereas I normally cut my losses and stick with two passes at this location.
Ended up with a very nice BBS shave. I could also tell that the lather and subsequent shave was improved by the skin sensation when I applied the Alt Innsbruck Emulsion post-shave.
It is normally a bit of damage control, but on this occasion, it was simply a delightful bracing finale.
