    Bowl Lathering For Travel

    Like others have said, traveling is a good time for face lathering, but if you want to stick to a bowl I'd prioritize something cheap. There's always the chance you'll lose something / leave something behind / have your luggage lost or stolen / &c while traveling, so I'd prioritize something...

    Best TOBS cream?

    It's been a while since I've used the Trumper rose, but I don't remember being impressed with it. I'd go for TOBS over Trumper, if Cyril Salter is too expensive.

    Best TOBS cream?

    Unless it's been changed lately, here's the ingredients WCS lists for TOBS Avocado: Persea Gratissima is the INCI name for Avocado.

    Simpson 2 band vs 3 band

    I haven't used a Super brush in quite a while, but from what I've read here, Simpson's Super is thinner in diameter than Best and less backbony, so, e.g., a Chubby in Super will be denser than a Chubby in Best. To me, that suggests a silvertip, not a Best that's been treated. Anyhow, I thought...

    Best TOBS cream?

    I love TOBS rose, but mainly out of nostalgia. It's a pretty middle-of-the-road rose, and roses can vary a lot, since most rose scents use artificial fragrance oil and not essential oil. (I think a few of the more expensive rose soaps on the market use EO, like Le Pere Lucien Rose de Pushkar and...

    Best TOBS cream?

    I think there is avocado in it...at least, avocado makes my face burn, and TOBS avocado definitely set off that reaction, unlike other TOBSes.

    What's for Dinner at Your House?

    Yesterday wasn't a great day for me, so our original plans of meatloaf and green beans got pushed back to tonight. Instead, we fixed a pot of white rice, my girlfriend heated up some leftover saag paneer, and I broke out a can of saba misoni (miso-simmered mackerel). The canned saba misoni is...

    What's for lunch.

    Have you tried Japanese mayo? I used to love Duke's, but Kewpie (or pretty much any Japanese brand) blows American mayo straight out of the water. So much more flavorful.

    What's your fast, no effort shave?

    I'll generally go for creams on those days, usually TOBS (rose or Mr Taylor's) or Cyril Salter Wild Rose. I usually leave the CF cream for when I have time to appreciate it. I'll generally go for a badger, one that I'm really comfortable with, like my Ever-Ready 22mm with TGN Finest (to this...
