I personally like to let my soaps dry for the rest of the day while I'm at work and recover when I get home. In reality, it probably doesn't make much difference, but I have a large rotation so I think its the "safest" practice.
I used to suffer from ingrown hairs and irritation, which is what led me to straight razors, and eventually here. Using a DE razor as opposed to a cartridge may help in many ways. Certain products are also more kind to the skin than others. However, as helpful as many of the members...
The AOS soap is very good. No it doesn't have tallow anymore and yes the valobra soaps are very good. But there is something rewarding about picking up a soap in person from the store. Keep your eye out for specials. At 20% off the refill puck is not a bad price at all.
I also let my soap dry for at least a few hours before putting the lid back on. If you use the same soap everyday then you are unlikely to have a problem. But a soap left wet in a dark place will grow mold. I have seen mildew on the top of one of my soap lids. So it is certainly possible. I...
I do believe this is correct. I also do believe the formulation of ivory in the early 20th century is vastly different than what you find on the supermarket shelves today. I would also argue that standards of a close and comfortable shave have also vastly been raised as well.
I had the milk stout a couple weeks ago on tap, its pretty good. Costco here sells the milk stout in cases.
If you like high abv stouts, their imperial russian stouts are very good. Particularly the expresso stout if you can find it locally.
Mortlach is good stuff. Diageo has started exploiting the distillery since Mortlach is an "in" whisky. Unfortunately their strategy is highly flawed by releasing aged expressions at super premium prices. I can't say I blame them for trying to get as much as they can. Mortlach is very under...
There are a lot of artisan makers out there these days. 3 years ago, I tried to keep up with them. Since the number has exploded the past couple of years, I just can't, seeing as I have enough soap to last me 50 years.
Performance is very important, and I will admit I have high standards. But...
I personally rub shave sticks on my face. To help with loading, I wet the stick before applying it. I think it helps load more soap that way. There is no "correct" way to use it, feel free to use it how you prefer.
