    Acqua di Parma in the tube

    I was concerned at first because I read somewhere else that the tube version was a brushless type. But I used it again yesterday (I'll use it every Sunday) it produced the thickest, densest lather I have ever used. Superb shaving experience. I paid 40 euro for the tube so yeah it is...

    What is The Best Canned Goo?

    Never really gave much thought about brushless creams. I mentioned canned goo because on training exercises time is a luxury and time spent shaving is not a luxury I have. Forgive me but I even thought about an electric razor. :eek: Since in my job and vehicle I would be able to recharge...
