    My son was Baptized this morning

    Congratulations! A special day for your family. It’s a good thing you wrote everything down, I have no idea what I did for my son’s baptism and it was only 8 months ago. Sleep deprivation is a very real monster. At least my shave looks ok in all the pictures we took!

    SOTD "FREE WEEK" April 12th - April 18th, 2021

    April 17, 2021 PAA kind of day. Really nice shave. Got carried away in the enjoyment of it and did a little too much on my neck, but it will be ok. Used more soap than I normally do and got just an amazing lather in one of my favorite spring scents. Brush: PAA Atomic Rocket Soap: PAA Twee...

    The WORST Cologne You've Owned / Smelled?

    I get this too, but from English made Rose scents (Trumper, Truefitt & Hill, Wickham). It’s really very off putting

    April 13, 2021 I just love the scent on this soap! Also just starting to use the Trafalgar brush from Simpson. Very different from my other synthetics. Much more consistent backbone and much scrubbier than the chubby 2 platinum synthetic or my PAA synthetic brushes. I like the handle though...

    Tulip 2 or 3 for Face Lathering?

    I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard the expression “Don’t put bacon on your hamburger, it will ruin regular hamburgers for you forever”. Well, my Tulip 2 Super is the bacon on my hamburger. I was happy with my Simpson Colonel in Best for years then WCS had a sale and I was able to get my Tulip 2...

    March 28, 2021 I really enjoy the performance of the 3 Murphy and McNeil soaps that I’ve had the pleasure of sampling, but haven’t found a scent that works for me yet. But the performance of the soap is too good for me to give up on trying. I’ve got a few more samples headed my way as I type...

    March 24, 2021 50th shave on this blade. Still felt plenty sharp paired with my RR Wunderbar. Got a great 2 pass BBS shave. Also, this brush/cream combo might be my new definition of luxury and excess in shaving. Brush: Simpson Chubby 3 Super Cream: Geo F Trumper GFT Bowl: Captain’s Choice...

    SOTD "FREE WEEK" March 15th - March 21st, 2021

    Sunday 21 March 2021 So I took my new brush for a spin at face lathering today. Oh man oh man. What a feeling to build the lather with this soft brush and some warm water. It just felt magical to be struck with that “wall of Badger” that so many others have described. Ok, so I got a bit of water...

    Oh you Chubby 2

    So my Chubby 3 Super arrived yesterday and I took it out for a spin today. First off, this is a gigantic brush. I actually like the feel in my hand of this larger handle, it just matches my hand a little more naturally than my smaller chubby 1&2. The hair is very soft and luxurious right out...

    Simpsons "Platinum Grade" synthetic questions

    Sorry to hear that you aren’t getting along with the platinum grade synthetic fiber. I found that I only started to have a good time with my Chubby 2 Synthetic once I gave up on face lathering. Once it has whipped up a soap and is holding a lot of lather it splays very easily and feels great...

    SOTD "FREE WEEK" March 15th - March 21st, 2021

    March 20, 2021 A monster of a brush arrived yesterday. Cleaned it last night and again this morning before taking it for a spin. The Chubby 3 Super is no joke. Truly an enveloping experience, like having a Badger 🦡 rubbing up on you like a house cat might (or so I imagine). Given that it took...

    Oh you Chubby 2

    It’s a funny little brush. Dry it’s soft enough without much splay at all. Same when just wet. Once it whips up a soap and is holding a lot of lather however it splays very easily and feels great. Don’t think I’ve mastered it yet, but certainly unique compared to the other synthetics that I’ve...

    Oh you Chubby 2

    I’ve had a Chubby 2 in best for years and I’ve used it maybe 5 times. Never could get into it. Kept telling myself that it was the handle. But then recently I thought, maybe it’s the hair. So I ordered a Chubby 2 in Synthetic and a Chubby 3 in Super. So far have been enjoying the synthetic...
