    The Travelling Newbie "Den"

    Was this bought online or at a retail store/ I have been looking for one and can't get my hands on them. The English Fern is great, too.

    Thank you, Feather Hi-Stainless, for helping me understand

    I just tried the Feathers that came with my blade sampler for the first time this morning on a pretty thick 3 day weekend hangover growth. It cut like butter with no pulling, grabbing, or dragging. It provided the most comfortable shave I have ever had. I will say though that if they don't last...

    How are you guys making them last?

    I have had similar results with all of the blades I have tried. I can usually get 3 out of all blades with the exception of a Merkur. Those are a one and done for me. Derby's, Feather, and Personna Reds have all worked particularly well for me. I too have only been at this for a short while and...

    brush hygiene

    I am still recovering from folliculitis after two weeks ( don't EVER get it) and even though the Dr confirmed the root cause as a reaction to meds I have become obsessed with sterilizing everything that comes in contact with my face until all is completely gone. I would like to sterilize my...

    best cream for Eczema

    I have had moderate to severe eczema on my hands only going on 20 years now. I, like most, have tried almost everything available with the typical results. I was just given a new drug by my dermo 2 weeks ago as a trial after a particularly nasty breakout. http://www.vanosrx.com/ 2 days later...

    nose hair, and ear hair maintenance

    +1. I use it on both about twice a week to keep it in check. There is also an attachment for your eyebrows and sideburns.

    How To Find A Great Men's Hair Stylist

    This chaps my butt, too. I prefer to go to the barber accross the street but can never make it there before he closes at 6 so I decided to go to a stylist. The stylist did a great job twice. After booking a third appointment I was told that he moved to another salon on the other side of town. I...

    Could This Be Something Other Than an Ingrown Hair?

    It sounds like folliculitis. i just saw a Dr. today after experiencing the same issue. I have two dime sized spots on my my jaw that are so awolen that I thought I might have mumps. The issue happened after a massive dose of antibiotics. I basically didn't have enough healthy bacteria left to...

    Post shave breakouts?

    Got an update from a dermatologist. I have folliculitis which was spurred by the strength of the antibiotic I was taking. It basically killed ALL of the good bacteria in my body to include that in the oils on my face which, after a shave, made me more succceptable to staph in the folicles. Not...

    Post shave breakouts?

    I think I have narrowed this problem down to an adverse reaction to some strong antibiotics that I am taking (cipro). That combined with the change in facial products has apparently been to much as they were all in the same 2 day period. I have 3 days left on the meds so hopefully I'll start to...

    Good Sandalwood AS?

    I picked up a bottle of the AOS balm this weekend. I already use the cream and liked the scent so much that the balm was a nutural choice. Combined the scent is still subtle but lasts all day and leaves my mug feeling like buttah! If you can get over the sticker shock I would highly suggest...

    Hand Soap?

    I have moderate to severe eczema on my hands and have for quite a good number of years so I am very particular about the soaps I use. I rotate out a few that work well for my sensative skin and still let me feel like a human. 1. Bvulgari white tea-I have a buddy that works for the Ritz and he...

    Biotene Toothpaste

    I've always wondered what that was that I was tasting when I drank OJ after brushing. Now I know it was the taste of Hell! Lol!!!

    Face Wash Recommendation

    Checks and balances is a great product. My wife uses it and I will sometimes sneak a bit from her. She has had the same tube for a long time now.

    Just how did our fathers and grandfathers do it?

    I occasionally use my Grandfather's razor. It is definately a bit more aggressive than my 34HD! No fancy brush or cream, just a puck of old palmolive and a simple brush. He never missed a shave either.

    Post shave breakouts?

    Also, I am shaving WTGx2 passes and 1 XTG for a finish up. Lately I have reduced to 2 WTG passes and a little buffing on the stubborn stuff.

    Post shave breakouts?

    I haven't had this problem since my early 20's and am hoping that someone has a simple suggestion. Over the past few weeks I have been experiencing an increased amount of igrown hairs and acne which I am attributing to a longer term effect of the change from cartridge shaving to DE and all of my...

    sweat stains...

    Oxyclean for sure. I just rejuvinated about a dozen undershirts and 3 white dress shirts. It also gets rid of ring around the collar on those older shirts. Works on colors too.

    Thoughts on the untimely death and quiet resurgence of manly rituals

    You are a true poet. It is a frustration of mine that we are led to believe that cramming more activities and conveniences into our day is a good thing when the true experiences of life happen not in the blink of an eye but often in a long, lingering gaze which ultimately provide us a sense of...
