The Mod Cabin
Welcome to the end of the first week of The Mod Cabin 6 week shave project. I had a couple of choices to choose from for the first week and decided on the Honeysuckle scent. I had the chance to try the pre shave oil, shave soap, toner and aftershave face tonic and the aftershave balm. I started my nightly shave off with the pre shave oil that came in a 2 oz. dark tinted glass bottle with sprayer lid. The shave oil is handcrafted with all natural and organic ingredients such as Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Avocado Oil. These all natural oils helps sooth, moisturize and increase hydration of the skin. The shave oil has a thinner consistency that won’t clog the pores of your skin. I applied the shave oil first before the shave soap to help increase the glide of my razor reducing irritation caused by shaving.
The Honeysuckle shave soap comes in a 6 oz. hardened solid bar. I decided to cut a chunk of this soap off and soak it in the shave bowl that I use every night. I filled the bowl with just enough hot water to cover the top of the soap to loosen it up. I let it soak for about fifteen minutes and then drained the water into another bowl for later use. The soap was softer and easier to create a good lather for shaving. I only needed a couple of quick rotations with my shave brush to create a thick and creamy shave ready lather. The lather was nice and thick in the bowl but thinned out a bit after I applied it. The slickness this soap offers makes up for the short life span of thick lather once applied to the skin. The slickness of this soap creates a smooth and comfortable shave every time. I have said it once and I’ll say it again, if I have to choose between lather or slickness I’ll choose slickness every time. Slickness helps prevent irritation caused from shaving. The post shave feel offered by this soap is tremendous. The slickness seems to intensify as you wash the excess soap off of your skin. I love shaving with this soap, It’s a great shave from start to finish.
The Honeysuckle shave soap is made with 100% all natural ingredients. One of my favorite natural ingredients that is found in this every day multifunctional soap is Glycerin. Glycerin acts as a Humectant that attracts moisture to your skin and traps it increasing hydration. Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and Castor Bean Oil are the other natural ingredients found in this soap that offer a lot of benefits to your skin care regimen such as soothing dry, cracked skin increasing hydration and moisture keeping it soft and supple decreasing irritation caused by shaving. These natural ingredients can decrease inflammation caused by bug bites and stings while acting as a natural bug repellent. These are just a few examples of how these natural ingredients can benefit your skin.
I followed up with the Honeysuckle Toner and Aftershave Tonic. This aftershave tonic comes in 2 oz. brown tinted glass bottle with sprayer lid. This aftershave tonic is a little different. Instead of applying and rubbing it into the skin, hold the bottle 8-10 inches away from your head and face while spraying allowing it to air dry. For best results use it on freshly shaved skin. I finished shaving and rinsed the extra soap away and then sprayed the tonic onto my skin. The Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera juice is gentle on the skin helping to reduce inflammation while toning and tightening the skin. The Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel moisturizes the skin healing cuts and scratches soothing your skin every time.
I ended my nightly shaving routine with the Honeysuckle Aftershave Balm that comes in a 3 oz. screw top tin. This aftershave balm is also different as well. The balm is whipped making it very soft and easy to use. I took of the lid and applied a bit of pressure through my index finger on top of the balm gathering a small amount that I transferred into the palm of my hands. I rubbed my hands together and massaged the balm into my skin giving it a nice radiant glow. The Shea Butter and Rice Bran Oil kept my skin soft and supple. This has been a great week with the Honeysuckle shaving products from TheModCabin.Com my skin feels very soft and comfortable. There has not been any irritation before, during or even after shaving and it’s time to move on to the second week. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you!
