I didn't even know this could happen, but as I was cleaning up after my shave this is what it did. Is it ruined, or is it a simple matter of putting the pieces back together??? I'll be using one of my Gillette TTO's for now.
I like Tabac. Shaving soap, shaving cream, bath soap, after shave, you name it, I like it.
I bought a bottle of Gillette Cool Wave after shave to go in my travel kit, and my wife seems to like it better than the Tabac!
What's up with that??? 🧐
Today, out of curiosity, I grated about half a bar of an "Olay Beauty Bar" into a shaving bowl and gave it a whirl.
It was pretty slick, but seemed to fade fast. I had to re-lather my neck after shaving my cheeks. Pretty slick, might work in a pinch.
But fades fast. Way too fast.
So I'm running low on Tabac shaving soap and decided to use a puck of VDH Deluxe that's been in my cabinet for a few years. Got the puck out and set it in that little blue/green bowl they sell and decided I didn't like the way it looked.
Searched on here and found that you can microwave it and...
I gave my barber a bit to try and now he wants to sell it in his shop, but none of his usual distributors carries it.
What distributor might be able to sell a case or so to my barber, at something less than retail? If he has to pay retail, there's no reason for him to carry...
Well -- it's been an eventful month. Just a few days ago, I got the diagnosis -- that little place under my eye is a basal cell carcinoma.
So -- now I use screen screen every day, wear a hat, long sleeved shirt, etc.
But -- do I put my sun screen on after my after shave, before my after...
Perhaps ten years ago, I got rid of all my pipes and haven't had one since. I've been thinking I'd like to have one again, so have just started looking a little.
So I was in the local Wal Mart this morning and thought I would see if they sold pipes. You know, like Grabow, Kaywoodie, maybe...
I have a Seiko automatic that's been in my "top drawer" for YEARS. It isn't working, but I hate to throw it away. The local jewelry store charges around $60 or $70 to send it off for an estimate.
Is there another option to get this watch working? I'd sure like to be able to use it.
Went to Albuquerque today to attend a concert. Nice drive up, got there a little early, so went to the Model Pharmacy to buy a new bottle of Tabac after shave lotion. Oh no! They were out of the small bottles, and I wasn't going to buy a big one. What to do?
Well, my wife and I did some...
I was a member of the Officer's Club several years ago, and it all ran just fine. I stopped it for a while, and recently started it up again. This month is the second month in a row where the cigars are really late. last month, I was actually charged for this month before AI got the ones for...
Anybody else have an AD and not realize it?
I just took a look in my cabinet, and I have eight soaps/creams, seven aftershaves, about 800 DE blades, two DE razors, and three straight razors.
How, oh how, did I gather all this stuff??? :blink:
