    TOBS Avocado

    I have eight of the TOBS creams and I like them all very much. The Avocado is an outstanding performer and has a very pleasant scent that smells more like cucumber than avocado in a good way. You might also like Shaving Shop which is a great "barbershop" scent. Regards, Doug

    How are you guys making them last?

    At the onset, let me say that my goal is to have close, enjoyable shaves. Period. If a blade doesn't feel good, I have no trouble changing mid shave. I have a medium beard (however that is actually defined) and would often get three great shaves from a blade and then it was gone. I used Gillette...

    Sandalwood soap and accompanying AS recommendation

    I have TOBS, GFT and AOS sandalwood soaps and while they are all great soaps, the scents are a bit different. I have MB sandalwood and vanilla and it produces a great lather but gives me a bit of a burn sometimes and I don't have sensitive skin. I have GFT sandalwood cologne and Skin Food and...
