    Debate with me: daily shaving is excessive and unnecessary

    I have stubble by the end of the work day after a close morning DE shave. Generally very close to BBS. By the next morning it’s whiskers. Impossible to go to work without shaving daily.

    Speick shaving soap.majorly under-rated

    I had this same experience. Skin redness. And I isolated it to the soap. One of two soaps in the scores that I have used that gave me a reaction. Unfortunate as I found the performance to be excellent in all ways. Highly recommend Speick.

    In Praise of Pre de Provence

    3017’d a full puck of the original last year. Another original puck plus A 63 in back stock. Great scent. Good performance. Amazing value.

    Thank goodness that is settled. Still in. A little more than half way through a puck of NOS Tallow Art of Shaving Sandalwood. Enjoying the ride.

    What exactly is an alternative for Valobra?

    NOS Tallow Art of Shaving pucks, which were made by Valobra. Getting scarce but still around. Mostly sandalwood. The C&S Valobra stock will run out as well and the new is likely to be a different manufacturer and formulation. There really isn’t anything I’ve found that is comparable...

    Muhle Sea Buckthorn

    Agree! It’s one of the unique great scents in shaving. Worth trying for sure.

    My Guess... 3017

    MW has always been a great soap for me. I 3017’d a tub of Coconut in 2013. Amazing scent and very good performance. Enjoy!

    My Guess... 3017

    Bob, I reread a bit of the early posts of this thread. @johnniegold knocked out PdP in just under 3 months. A heroic feat!
