    Minimalist shaver’s annual cost...

    After experimenting with a variety of blades, razors and soaps I zeroed in on what worked and for 3 years now there’s been almost no change in my every day shave kit. I use the same soap, brush and razor every day. Here’s the items I purchases in 2017. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune. In...

    Simpson Berkeley's 650th shave...

    What a wonderful brush this has been. It's been over two years now - it's the only brush I own. I face lather from an Old Spice mug daily. It's lost maybe 4 or 5 hairs in the past year.

    Vintage Aqua Velva - finally picked one up :

    I'm tickled to have found a 1960's vintage Aqua Velva bottle. I remember this bottle when I was a kid (I'm 52 now), especially the big blue cap. It even came with the original box which from the graphics looks to me like 1960's or early 70's (if anyone thinks different let me know, this is just...

    Skin Bracer. One full bottle GONE

    Well it's been about 10 weeks of Skin Bracer - EVERY day. I bought it at Walmart at the beginning of March and have used it for every shave since then. This morning I just used the last of it and I must say I do really like it. I love the scent, the $4.87 price for 7 ounces is hard to beat and I...

    Blade Buffing with a DE

    For the past couple weeks I've been experimenting with blade buffing. It's now become a regular part of my shave and has been very successful. I've always done a two pass shave - WTG, rinse then XTG. These were both done with a single stroke of the razor, move over an inch or so, make the next...

    Want refreshing? Barbasol!

    I bought a bottle of this at Family Dollar store for $2 the other day. It smelled good in the bottle, but I don't remember if I've ever used it. I do remember it from many years ago, but probably from commercials or ads. Well I used it this morning and WOW how awesome! This stuff is incredibly...

    Hey all, I'm looking for an older style glass Aqua Velva Ice Blue bottle. It can be empty, I just plan to add Aqua Velva to it. The bottle I'm looking for is the one with the old sort of bulbous blue/ribbed cap, not the current smooth silver cap. Thanks!

    Arko stick longevity.

    Hey all you Arko fans. Thought I'd report on my findings so far. I've documented the shaves on this stick out of curiousity - how many shaves does an Arko stick give? Well I kept track and here are my findings. I just completed my 70th shave with this stick (which cost me a $1.08 when...

    ? ref Gillette Platinum

    I've used the Astra SP and love it, but recently was gifted a small quantity of these blades... I love them! They're giving me outstanding shaves - arguably the best I've ever had. But where do I find them? It appears they're discontinued? If not where can I get a large quantity in bulk? If...
