C.a.D. & The DE 89:

This morning's shave was great. I grabbed my Phoenix Artisan Accoutrement's mixed soap container which is dominated by the C.a.D. version 2.0 scented soap.

I need to get more of Phoenix Artisan Accoutrement's aftershave balms. They're extremely good and they offer sun protection as well. I'll look closer at the bottle to see what the SPF rating is.

These are up there in quality and can be compared with Soap Commander aftershave balms which are legendary.
