    BRUT Aftershave Balm options?

    While they may have, the entire Et Tu lineup has been discontinued. Kinda bummed since that was what I was going to get...and what prompted me to post on here :( As for longevity, I would say the PAA Aftershave/EdT lasts longer. PAA has been known to have good Aftershave/EdT scent strength and...

    Razorock BBS First Impressions

    I figured I would chime in as I received my BBS last Wednesday and have been shaving with it every 2 days or so. To assist with my description of how the BBS shaves, I wanted to advise what I have used up to this point: Merkur 34c Razorock Mission / Mentor Maggards V3A Razorock MJ90 + A plate...

    SOUTHERN WITCHCRAFTS

    Glad I saw this thread - They are somewhat local to me (they reside in Tucker, GA) and I reached out to them as I really had no experience with scents as complex as theirs. So as to at least say I dipped my toe in the pond, I went with Desairology, which by their description is their...

    Thayer’s Cucumber Witch Hazel.... anyone using this?

    My process is very similar to Peterv1 - Shave, cold water rinse, theyers (either unscented or cucumber) toner, and aftershave balm. Has yet to fail me - but it is fantastic.

    BRUT Aftershave Balm options?

    That's a good idea! I do have some unscented aftershave balm and could try mixing it with some Brut A/S if it comes down to it.

    BRUT Aftershave Balm options?

    Hi everyone, After trying out aftershave lotion for a bit, I've found my skin is a bit more receptive to a combination of witch hazel toner & balm. That said, I have been using the CK6 formula from PAA's Et Tu soap (homage to Brut) but am having trouble sourcing a balm option. It seems Brut...

    Best synthetic under $30

    Under $30 for me would definitely be the Simpsons Trafalgar T3. Under $20 would be a DSCosmetics Kevy Shaves synthetic 24mm knot with black/smoke handle from AliExpress, and under $10 would be the blem Yaqi Sagrada Familia. they're selling at $7 and for that price, I kept one to practice on and...

    MDC Fougere vs Barrister & mann Fougere Angelique

    On the other hand, I have no experience with MdC, but have Fougere Angelique from B&M. It was recommended by a friend who spoke highly of B&M's Fougere scents and told me that based on what I liked, that it would be right up my alley. Man oh man... it is. Fougere Gothique, not so much, but...

    Shims - do you use them, and what are your experiences ?

    Bear in mind, I tried this same technique out with several razors and some just do not fit correctly. In particular, any of the razors with plates that are curved will turn out wonky. in short, you can use slimmed down razor blades devoid of any edges and stack them for those. This worked...

    What did you use today? +Rate the shave 1-10 (10 best)

    yes sir - it gives a choice of three sizes although the medium was perfect for me. I found the link here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3392930 Hopefully that helps!

    Dogs

    Ziggy (Super-Mutt mix) on the left, and Gaston (100% American Pit Bull) on the right. I had the unfortunate experience of having to put Gaston to sleep about a week and a half ago. He was an amazing companion and even though he had multiple issues over his short time with us (protein...

    Rockwell sadness/frustration

    Disappointing, to say the least. I was considering purchasing either a 6c or 6s new recently, but based on how this is being handled by the company I would much rather opt for one on the secondary market. They come up every now and then on here but go rather quickly, which does provide some...

    Shims - do you use them, and what are your experiences ?

    One of the first razors I ever picked up was a Merkur 34c. Unfortunately it was just too mild for my skin/hair combo, no matter the blade being used. Normally on my 3 piece razors I keep a 1mm teflon washer between the base and handle, but I was feeling curious last night and after loading a new...
