    Source for Speick Guest Soap

    Thanks for the reply. Royal Shave does indeed list it, but they are currently out of stock. Would you believe it - amazon.de doesn't list this! But all is well. I found a US distributor: Meadow View Imports. Thanks everyone!

    Source for Speick Guest Soap

    Thanks for the reply Bismark. That link brings me to several Speick products, so the brand is right. But it doesn't show the particular Speick product I'm looking for. I'm looking for Speick bar soap (not shaving soap), in the small size - the size of a bar of hotel guest soap. This link...

    Source for Speick Guest Soap

    I've been a member since 2010, but it's been a few years since I've stopped by. I love what you've done with the place! I'm looking for a US-based retailer for Speick's 13.5g guest soap. I've checked Amazon & eBay, googled it, and searched the forums here, all with no luck. The Speick site...

    Recommended suppliers and/or brands of essential and fragrance oils

    I'm looking to purchase some essential oils, and I know I can get better quality and value online than I can locally. But, oy! The plethora of choices out there! So, I thought I'd go to the trustworthy gentlemen (and ladies) of B&B for some advice. I thought I'd search the forums before...

    Arko vs Palmolive stick...which is better for sensitive skin?

    I like 'em both. And, they are both dirt cheap. I got myself a tub of Arko recently, $4 shipped!

    How do you apply your aftershave talc?

    Thanks everyone for your input, and apologies for my absence. Life can really get in the way of living! :) I got some Clubman Finest Talc. It's not white, but it's not flesh-tone either. It's kind of a pale pink. I've been playing around with ways to apply it that gives an even coat with...

    Moving PIF

    Thank you, sir, for your service. Not enough recognition goes out to those who risk everything for our freedom. (Though, you wouldn't think so, after reading this thread!) Also, thank you for your most generous PIF. There are a lot of things there that I have yet to try, so I'd like to be...

    How do you apply your aftershave talc?

    To apply talc to the face? Aren't the bristles on those things like 6" long? Sorry for all the dumb questions, but ... Before applying to the face, would you shake the talc directly onto the brush? Or maybe put some talc in a cup/mug or the palm of you had, and dip the brush into it? How do...

    How do you apply your aftershave talc?

    I have tried using talc after my shave for all its benefits. I've come across some issues I could use your help with. I've read several threads here on the subject, but some questions remain. 1) If you use talc after your shave, how do you apply it? I've tried applying it like an aftershave...

    Medical Prep Personna

    I'm not sure about that. I think you might find the discussion in this thread - I'm not sure - but many moons ago this question prompted a member to contact the manufacturer directly. The response indicated that the both blades went through the exact same process, with the Meds getting one...

    Yup, KJ - this pass was fantastic and a lot of fun - thanks! But, I was thinking: that should come as no surprise, because the participants were all gentlemen from B&B!

    PIF Giveaway Game (Round 6) - I miss Christmas!

    Well, KJ, it doesn't look like anyone's interested. I'll tell you what, you can send them to me, and I'll find a fair, equitable way to handle them. Seriously, though - it seems like you may need to do something to get the word out. Perhaps PM the non-participants who posted in this thread?

    PIF Giveaway Game (Round 6) - I miss Christmas!

    Sorry for the late reply, but ... I got into roasting my own coffee several years ago when my brother got me a Sweet Maria's starter kit as a gift. I took a look, and their current starter kit come with a stove-top roaster. Mine came with a Fresh Roast air roaster. Not the SR500 that comes...

    PIF Giveaway Game (Round 6) - I miss Christmas!

    Oh, man - that is just awesome! I used to be into roasting my own coffee beans. Got supplies and the green coffee beans of many different countries from SweetMarias.com. I could control the darkness of the roast and make my own blends. Seeing this makes me want to check into it again...

    PIF Giveaway Game (Round 6) - I miss Christmas!

    Matt, how's the physical box holding out? Is it still the plain 14x14x8, or has it been replaced? And when will we get pics - or at least a description - of your awesome bonus?! :)

    That's for sure - congrats Boris! It's awesome! :thumbup: The head is very similar to my Merkur 34C, and it's just as hefty. But the handle is longer - I love the balance! One impressive razor - thanks!

    PIF Giveaway Game (Round 6) - I miss Christmas!

    Unfortunately, the Thayer's Witch Hazel Aftershave comes in a bottle with no flow restrictor - the top of the bottle is just wide open. I found it too easy to dump too much, which wastes a lot. So, I found a 4 oz. clear plastic bottle with a rocker style flip-top, like a lot of shampoos and...

    Whoa, Devin! I was about to ask how your long lunch was. But while I was typing, I remembered you're on the West coast - 3 hours earlier than me. It's only 10:30 your time! :laugh:

    Wow - CA had some of the best wines in the world! And, as far as American wines go, believe it or not, Michigan is #2 - much from the Leelanau Peninsula.
