    What goodies are you expecting in the mail?

    This is what got in the mail for me. IA is a brand I only heard about a couple of weeks ago here in the forum and my wife and I decided to get the sampler for our anniversary... on the other hand, MdC is something I heard about 6 years ago when I started this journey with a cheap shavette. i...

    Imaginary Authors?

    We just got a sampler yesterday... So far my wife tried O, Unknown and I like it... it reminded me to a soft incense which I enjoy and I tried The Canary & the Cobra and it's really nice, not sure how to describe it other than the words they use, I would say that this it feels a bit spicy to...

    Feeling the best a man could feel in one day from a good deed.

    I am amazed by these stories. We sometimes forget that the best way to overcome an issue we must take care of each other... truly inspiring @RobertJ

    Am I falling into the rabbit hole again?

    So I did ended up falling again... as I’m writing this I’m waiting on a sample set from imaginary authors (based on what I’ve been reading here on the forums) and my wife also liked the idea as they’re unisex so it will be our anniversary present... and I finally pulled the trigger on a MdC...

    First time using TOBS Mr Taylor

    And one thing I forgot to mention... so far I haven't been able to lather a rich, creamy lather... it's always a bit thin

    First time using TOBS Mr Taylor

    I like the smell... although it's a bit medicinal it's kinda fresh... but the first few times I added too much water... and I used a bowl, it might be better off with less water and maybe face lathering (haven't tried that)

    First time using TOBS Mr Taylor

    I agree with Mr. Taylor being amazing. I've tried Triumph and Disaster (Which I'm using right now) Art of shaving, L'Occitane and I keep coming back to TOBS. For me it's the best cream I've used and an amazing scent. I also got the after shave splash and absolutely love it.

    It’s the same logic I use

    Am I falling into the rabbit hole again?

    I absolutely agree with all of you... I showed restraint (and to avoid too many fights with the wife) and I could spend the extra in other things... some of the stuff I got was under the context of re-arranging the bathroom, which I know she likes :) ;) and yes... I’m definitely enjoying it...

    Am I falling into the rabbit hole again?

    So it’s 2020 and I really don’t want to think (or talk) about all the bad news that we are hearing everywhere. And I know it’s been a while since I post here...literally, years. During this time many things have happened... sadly, I stopped using my straight razors due to lack of time, for...

    Captain's Choice Bay Rum problems

    Hello everyone! I've been having a problem with this particular AS lately and I wanted to ask you for your opinions. I started using this AS a few weeks ago and I liked the scent and light stinging sensation even though I'm not a huge fan of the clover, which after a few minutes fades away...

    A beginner's review - pic heavy

    I know, I'm actually trying to convince my friends to switch but no success yet he he he... And the Dovo is really beautiful and a great shaver. And today I got the same burning feeling from Captain's Choice Bay rum... so I have no idea what or why this could be.

    A beginner's review - pic heavy

    Hello from Vancouver!! although this is not my first post, I think it’s probably my most extensive one. I’ve been using a straight razor for about a month. I have two different blades and I alternate one each day. I started with a parker shavette which was a great way to start getting the hang...

    Shops in Las Vegas

    Ok, so I’m back from my trip to vegas and I have to say that I did indulge myself and may be went a little bit over my budget but it was completely worth it! I couldn’t take a lot of pictures as they were giving me some weird looks at the stores and some of them acted like I was taking...
