    Summer is just around the corner and I am looking for different soaps to rotate for the coming months but I wanted to balance out my hyper mentholated soaps (Yeti, Glaical/Vostok, MB Cilantro Lime Ice) with a cool but not face freezing soap. Amanda of Tiki Soaps whipped up a Custom called...

    Stopped by a Salvation Army store to see if I could find a used vac coffee pot and found this on one of the shelves for a buck so picked it up. I believe it is a Russian Shave Cream but woman at the counter stated it is a pre-shave cream. It appears similar to Gada in thickness so I believe it...

    BG Beehive with new knot

    Last week bought from fellow member the badger/horse hair brush and arrived in my hands on Monday. Have tried it out three days now and just do not like the feel or backbone. I knew it was 50mm loft and smallest that I own but surprised of lack of backbone. I had one 24mmx65mm Whipped Dog...
