    Proraso canned foam

    Anyone used the proraso canned foam? Bought a travel size to use on business trips and will report back at end of the month on its performance. Just interested if anyone else has used it already?

    Annoying spots!

    I’ve noticed that I regularly get a series of 2 or 3 small spots in a row going across my cheek about mid-way down. They are pretty small and aren’t in-grown hairs because I can see the hair quite clearly. They are more a sort of irritated follicle. If I squeeze them they do get better but...

    Shave with Babe in arms

    Just wanted to share a new milestone in my wet shave journey. My 4month old daughter was very grouchy this morning and wanted holding by her Daddy. I was in the middle of my second pass but I couldn't just ignore her so I carried on my shave whilst holding her in the crook of my left arm...

    Any one had a Shave at Geo F Trumpers?

    Has anyone had experience of the shave and face massage service from Geo. F. Trumpers in London? I’m thinking of buying my brother in law the experience for his birthday in a couple of weeks. It’s pricey but I think he’ll appreciate it. I know I would! If anyone’s...

    Alum Blocks - are they worth it?

    Does anyone have experience of using an Alum block? Are they worth the money? Are they any good if you have sensitive skin? I read that they can help keep bumps at bay as well as put out any irritation but they are a bit on the expensive side. Your advice is appreciated.

    Sensitive skin soap/cream recommendations

    Can anyone make some recommendations for shaving soaps or creams for moderately sensitive skin? I react to anything with a high alcohol content or very strong fragrance, but otherwise I’m OK. My current set up is Merkur HD, Astra blades, Omega, Boar brush, L’Occitane Cade soap, and Prorasso...

    Should I experiment more with blades?

    OK, first a bit of background as to why I’ve ended up in DE world. December last year, after approximately 17years using cartridges and goo I decided there must be more to shaving than Schick cartridges, canned goo and that permanent blotchy patch under my jaw line. So I went looking and...
