The Challenge II

So someone asked how long a lather will last. So, I put this together…

Old Spice Shaving Cream               Barbasol Shaving Foam                     Edge Shaving Gel

       (Love the smell !!)


First we lathered up the Shaving cream using between a dime and a nickel worth of product. Then we placed the contestants out on plates to see what would become of them.


I have to admit that I really didn’t know what to do with the Gel. We’ll see what it does. I never use it !!

And so the wait begins….



This is what it looked like over time;

The Challenge II



The shaving soap lather had evaporated all of it’s water out. There was nothing but a hard soap residue. There was no oil or grease present. I could have probably added water and brushed it into a lather again.



The foam is just about gone at this point. It held for a while but then just kind of “gave up”.


In the end the foam left a greasy residue. It was oily and slick. The pictures don’t show it well but there is an oil slick on the plate!


Now, this sequence of pictures happened over 4 days. The Gel never did much after day 3. It was still the same after 5 days as the picture above (at day 4). It just kind of sat there. It might have gone away eventually but I got bored watching it and threw it away.

At the end of the day, I would much prefer putting real soap on my face and avoiding the oils and who knows what other petro-chemicals on my skin. Just my personal preference.
