Valobra shave stick
I picked this up at Smallflower.com recently and I was quite surprised at how terrific this soap is. I got a very close comfortable shave with it.The sticks are 2 Oz's,and while no ingredients are posted on the website or printed on the package, I believe this is a tallow based soap. My face had huge pillows of thick dense lather. The stick has a clean soapy scent. The lather was as good as some of the high end English soaps and overall I would place it performance wise...
With Penhaligon's shave cream-
Very,very impressive brush! More so because of the cost.
On to soaps-
I used the BBE brush with QED Sandalwood today-
This brush is a water hog,
Loaded up with that sandalwood goodness,
A little water,
some more water and work,
Pretty good job of it,
That should do the job,
Ahh, another great shave!
As Joel showed multiple grips are possible with this brush, this is most comfortable for me.

Diehl's Shave Soap- Natural
This was a gift from my B&B secret Santa-
I have enjoyed this soap very much.
The soap contains;
vegetable oils, glycerin, water, vitamin E, emulsifier and fragrance.
I find the lather to be unscented.
This soap provides a good no nonsense shave,
does not cause any skin reactions and does not dry out my face.
Making lather is fast and easy with no fuss.
The lather provides good cushion and very good lubrication/slip.
I can get a good close shave with no...
Shavemac # 177 23mm silvertip brush
What can anyone say about this company and its brushes that has not already been said?
This was the third good brush that I purchased after surfing into the B&B and discovering that there was more shaving stuff out there than I had ever imagined.
I was on a some what Goldie-locks type of mission in regards to finding the right brush,
The first was a bit small at 19mm the second was too big at 26mm.
I found the Shavemac was “Just right” at 23mm...

The product seems well made of high quality ingredients; a small critique is the plastic squeeze bottle, while keeping costs down this product deserves a higher end...
With the profusion of Shea butter shave soaps available today I do not need the level of moisturizing that I once did. These soaps have much more lubrication as well so my skin is in better shape after my shave.
I see a dermatologist on a regular basis (To much sun as a kid) and I always snag samples of products from her, some of these are light moisturizers with SPF sunscreen in them, one is called Purpose- a Johnson and Johnson product.
I have been using it for a while with very good...
