    DR Harris Rose Cream

    There have been a few threads lately about rose creams. People asking for recommendations, how does this one smell, stuff like that. At some point last year, I bought a tube of DR Harris Rose Cream, which I had never tried ... until this morning. When I try a new cream, I usually buy it in a...

    Wearing Glasses While Shaving

    Do you do it? Most of the time, I wear contact lenses. I always put my lenses in before shaving. On days in which I wear my glasses, however, I don't wear them while I shave. I would never have even thought of it, but I was perusing YouTube one day, watching some shaving videos, when I saw...

    My New Rudy Vey Flat Top!

    I've been really getting into face lathering lately. I saw in a thread about the Shavemac Flat Top knots that Rudy Vey really recommended them for face lather. He said that 20mm knot with a loft of 42mm is his favorite. So, I contacted him and asked for that very brush in faux tortoise. It...

    Face lathering with the Kent BK8

    Every time I read a thread about the Kent BK8, people always talk about how it's the best bowl lathering brush around. I totally agree with that. I bought mine a couple of months ago and have strictly bowl lathered with it. Then, I read that a few people have mentioned they also like it for...

    I forgot to shave today!

    I had a work event last night, so I got home pretty late and didn't get a great night's sleep. Woke up usual time, showered, got dressed, had breakfast and coffee, all along the way wondering why I was running so early. I finished up about 20 minutes earlier than I usually do. Then, by...

    I've Lurked for so Long, I'm Embarrassed About it!

    Well, I've lurked for about as long as I can stand it! I have wanted to join this community for so long, but always put it off until "tomorrow." I'm no newbie when it comes to DE shaving. I've been doing it for about 8 or 9 years. But, I've improved my technique, my lather making ability and...
