    Hand Soap for Shaving?

    Well, I broke down and tried the Yardly charcoal soap for my shave today. It worked, but I'll not make it a habit. I treated it like I treat all shave sticks and wound up with a thin watery lather that dissipated quickly. That made it more difficult to see where I had already shaved or not...

    What are you unpacking/ opening today, show pics or video, we love pics

    Nothing really special. I keep seeing guys talking about the new Cella Bio, so when WCS had their free shipping the other day I grabbed a tube. I couldn't resist $8.05 out the door.

    Hand Soap for Shaving?

    By the time that guy got his brush loaded I'd already have my first pass done. There's no way I'm going to spend that long building a lather. I did pick up a bar of this a few months ago with the intention of using it as a preshave face wash. I just never got around to trying it. Activated...

    Hand Soap for Shaving?

    I've never tried a hand/bath soap before. I am awfully tempted to try Kirk's castile soap though. It lathers like a demon when I bathe. My grandfather used regular old Dial soap. I imagine Arko is cheaper than Dove, so that's what I would go for if price was the main consideration.

    thoughts on proraso shaving stuff?

    I'm a big fan of the red tube. It's not the most cost effective, but it's worth it to me and I'm a cheapsake.

    A PIF for comedians

    Nice PIF, great razor! Not In. When we got married the wife had hair down to her butt. It took about two weeks, but I finally convinced her to shave her back! The wife hates when I tell that. She did have really long hair when we got married, but some fool kept laying on it in the bed and...
