Like a good cup of coffee, my morning routine—at least Monday through Friday—also consists of shaving. Also like my morning coffee, I like taking my time and enjoying the process of shaving. It’s one of the few times that I force myself to slow down during the day. And I honestly find it therapeutic. For a few years now, that process has included using a shaving brush, soap, and my safety razor. Do you like to use a brush and soap for your shave? What brands have you tried and which are your favorites?
