Shaving has always been something of a necessary evil for me.
I like the smooth feeling, but it doesn’t last long and soon you’re right back where you started. I will frequently go days without shaving. This lasts until I feel that my hobo-like appearance is negatively impacting my coworkers’ opinions of me, or my wife won’t let me kiss her anymore.
I’ve always used whatever generic can of shaving cream I could find at the drugstore, but I recently decided it was time to go a bit more old-fashioned. Because almost every other personal care product I use regularly is now homemade, this was one of the last holdouts. So I bought myself a shaving brush and whipped up a homemade shaving soap using this shaving soap recipe.
