So... for testing purposes, and without him knowing, I swiped Eric's bar of Clean Cut and used it yesterday in the shower when I was shaving. It rocks. No, I mean it, it's great.
We need a feminine (or unisex, for that matter) shaving soap. Expect one on the horizon.
Know what else I like about this soap, though? It makes Eric want to shave.
He hates to shave. And I hate it when he's prickly. It was always pulling teeth to get him to finally shave, even though he knew he should, if only for work.
This shaving soap, though, spurred him to ask for an old-fashioned straight razor for the holidays. I got him one. And now, as he put it, shaving is an event. He loves it! He actively likes to shave! All because of soap! And I didn't even have to spring for commercial shaving soap with the razor, which would've been crazy expensive!
Meanwhile, I've got a secret weapon for keeping Eric clean-shaven... just keep the stock of shaving soap replenished!
