This summary marks the end of the six week shave project with Captain’s Choice shaving products. These last six weeks have been full of great shaves every day. The glycerin used as one of the ingredients found in the shave soap help lock moisture in the top layer of skin adding extra hydration and suppleness to your skin. These last six weeks I’ve tested the Captain’s Choice shaving products in different ways.
I’ve tested the two samples of shave soap that came packaged in their own plastic tubs. The Lime and North scent shaving soap from Captain’s Choice both came in 5 oz. tub with enough room to build a shave ready lather. The plastic tubs that the two shave soap came packaged in is very convenient and time-saving. It takes more time to build a pre lather and then transfer it into another shave bowl and continue to work your mixture into a shave ready lather. Building your lather in its original container does have its cons though. Since you are building your lather upon the same soap in the same container your lather may be to thick. It’s hard to thin out the consistency of the soap if your constantly adding soap to the lather. One way to fix this is by loading your brush with lather and running it quickly under a steady stream of water before applying it to your Dome and face. This method will thin out the consistency of your lather to your liking.
The other shave soaps came in quarter ounce sample sizes that are good for several shaves. You can’t build your lather in quarter size sample size containers there is not enough room. When it comes to quarter sample sizes you will want to press your shave soap into the bottom of your shave bowl and build your lather from there. I like pressing shave soap but it’s hard for me to judge how much to press to get a good robust lather. A couple of things to keep in mind when pressing your shave soap. Number one is, when pressing your soap always smooth it out on the bottom of your bowl. if you have big chunks of soap on the bottom of your bowl they could clog up your safety razor when shaving. Number two is, make sure you press enough soap on the bottom of your bowl because once you start working up your lather it would be hard to add more if you need to.
I also had the Bay Rum and the Sandalwood aftershave splash in four fluid oz. bottles and several more samples in quarter fluid oz. bottles as well. The after shave no matter if it was in the four fluid oz. bottles or quarter oz. bottles performed in the same manner with toning the skin and fighting the early signs of aging. After shave splash also kills of any bacteria that may fester in small cuts and nicks caused from shaving. After shave splash can also help dry oily skin as well. I always use after shave splash and follow it up with after shave balm as well to add extra moisturization to my Dome and face. I had a four fluid oz. bottle of the Lime scented after shave balm from Captain’s Choice that soothed my skin after every shave. I also had several after shave balms that came in quarter oz. containers that performed the same as the Lime scented after shave balm that came in the four fluid oz. bottle. The sample size containers of the Captain’s Choice after shave splash and balm are TSA approved and ready for travel. No matter if you try the four oz. bottle of after shave balm and splashes or the quarter size containers the result will always be the same. a smooth finish to a fantastic shave from the Captain’s Choice shaving products.
I feel very fortunate to have had the chance to thoroughly try the shaving products from Captain’s Choice. These last six weeks have been more than perfect and I look forward to shaving with these products once again. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day!
At the end of week five out of the six week shave project with Captain’s Choice shaving products the skin on my Dome and face still has a nice shine. My skin looks and feels more supple and soft. Increased suppleness of the skin is important especially if it’s the area that you are shaving every night. An increased suppleness means your skin has a nice hydration level. Skin that is well hydrated is more pliable and resistant to razor burn, cuts and nicks. One ingredient found in the shaving soap from Captain’s Choice shaving soap is Vegetable Glycerin which has many healthy benefits for your skin.
Vegetable Glycerin is a natural humectant which means it’s part of the natural moisturizing factor in our skin. Glycerin helps seal in the moisture on the top layer of your skin. Glycerin used in conjunction with ingredients and natural oils that help protect the deep water content found in the skin adds more value to your every day skin care routine. If your shaving products contain glycerin and these certain oils then it adds more value to your shaving routine as well. Glycerin can also be used as a cleanser, a toner and skin moisturizer. It also helps retain water in the skin. Glycerin also helps oily skin problems like pimples, acne and blackhead, Glycerin also helps give the skin a soft and supple feel.
It should be no surprise that after extended use of the Captain’s Choice shaving products your skin would feel extra supple and smooth to the touch. The glycerin found in the Captain’s Choice shaving soap helps lock moisture in the skin. This is just one more reason why Captain’s Choice shaving products add value to your shaving routine and skin care regimen. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day!
The fourth week out of the six week shave project with Captain’s Choice shave products is sample week. I think sample are great! Samples give you a chance to try a product before buying the full size and end up not liking the product at all. I also like samples because nine times out of ten they are TSA approved and ready for travel meaning I can shave with the Captain’s Choice shaving products in the privacy of my bathroom or travel across the world and shave with the same Captain’s Choice shave products, that’s what I call convenience. I received several samples from Captain’s Choice to try during this six week project.
I received samples of shave soap and after shave balm and splash. Each sample is good for more than one shave. In fact each sample is good for more than one week. Even though each sample of shaving soap is small there is a lot of lather that comes from each shave. Even though each sample of after shave splash and balm is small there is a lot of moisturization and rehydration that comes from each sample for each shave. When comparing the sample sizes to the full sizes shaving products from Captain’s Choice, there really is no difference in functionality. You still can get the same amount of lather each shave no matter if you are using samples or full size products. The post shave feel you get from the shave soap is the same no matter if you use the sample shave soaps or the full size tubs of shave soap. The after shave splash and balm produces the same moisturization and rehydration of the skin on your Dome and face no matter what size of aftershave you use.
Overall the Captain’s Choice shave products that comes in sample sizes gives you the same amount of lather with the same great post shave feel, the same level of moisturization and re-hydration of the skin on your Dome and face. The shave with Captain’s Choice is fantastic no matter what size you use. At the end of week four the skin on my dome and face still feels great. The softness level has increased as well as the suppleness level. I’m looking forward to week five out of the six week shave project with Captain’s Choice shave projects. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day.
