Bowl lathering creams
A dollop of cream in a bowl. A pre soaked brush. A quick swirl. Loads of thick creamy lather. Paint it on. Swirl and scrub if you wish. Then smooth over, and off you go.
I sometimes wonder why I bother with soaps. Some say it saves washing up a bowl and that it's less effort, particularly if you face lather. But simply using a soap in it's bowl is a messy business and it needs cleaning up afterwards.
So it's bowl lathering with creams.
That's at least until I remember just how good some of the old favourites are.. Tabac, Palmolive, Proraso, Arko, oh - and Martin de Candre. Then out they come.
Then back to the creams.
We are a funny lot!
