    Anyone using unscented or minimally scented soaps?

    Hello all: I am trying to get away from scented soaps. I've read that it's better for the skin. I have sensitive skin and have noticed that some creams and soaps irritate my lips if I get lather on them (my lips actually swell up and ache a bit). I am not buying any more scented soaps and am...

    Loving the "cheap" soaps!

    I really love using the cheap soaps, such as Arko, Palmolive, and Godrej shaving round. I like the different scents and am very pleased with their performance. I haven't tried VDH, Williams, or the Colonel Conk yet.

    RazoRock [Boston Tea Party]

    Anyone else a fan of this stuff? It has a very pleasant scent (from green tea), lathers easily, gives a close shave, and leaves the skin feeling great after the shave. I wish I had tried this Artisan Shaving Soap line earlier in my wet shaving journey. It is "croapy" and reminds me of Cella.

    Truefitt & Hill [West Indian Limes]

    Working on the T&H sampler pack and the West Indian Limes stung my face a little bit. I got some of the cream on my lips and I could feel them go a little numb. Has anyone else had this issue? I hope I will not have this reaction to all of the T&H creams! I had a similar reactions to TOBS...

    High praise for West Coast Shaving!

    Just some high praise and kudos for West Coast Shaving for providing good customer service and putting the customer's satisfaction and happiness first. They accepted return of a razor purchased from them and used...and one that I discovered much later had an issue that was "borderline to what...

    Do you own more shaving soaps or shaving creams...and why?

    I own many more shaving soaps than creams. I like shaving sticks and I like to face-lather and I find this easier to do with pucks and sticks. I like the variety of scents you can find in the shaving soap world. I also like lighter scents in some of my soaps. And I believe that soaps last...

    I started a similar thread in the soaps forum. If you are forced by natural or man-made (or SWMBO?) mandates to thin you shaving cream herd to 3, which ones do you keep? And why? This a theorhetical question and no shavers or shaving creams will be hurt by providing your answers below...

    Let's just assume by either natural or man-made mandates, you must reduce your shaving soap herd down to 3 soaps only for life...which ones make the cut? And why? For me, it's: MWF: love the scent, lather, and how it makes my face feel after the shave. Arko stick: like the scent...

    Movies or TV shows featuring DE/straight razor shaving...?

    Hello my brothers! I was watching the movie "Frantic" (with Harrison Ford, 1988) and was pleasantly surprised to see him bowl lather and shave with a straight razor. This happens within the first 15 minutes of the movie. What movies or television shows have you seen where an actor shaves...

    Cyril R. Salter Shaving Cream [Wild Rose]

    Just had my first shave with Cyril R. Salter wild rose shaving cream. On the label, it's noted as a luxury shaving cream...and I can see why. I face lathered with my Semogue 803 and it produced the thickest, most cushioning lather of any shaving cream I have tried (TOBS Lavender, TOBS...

    One week, one product

    Hello All: I decided, having nearly 20 (in total) creams and soaps, that I would re-dedicate myself to giving each product fair use. So, I have decided to shave with one product for a full week before moving onto another. I just received a bunch of new soaps and creams and haven't even tried...

    Mitchell's Wool Fat (MWF) thread
