Taylor's best product
A Rose by another name
Would not shave as sweet

First of all, let me say again how awesome this SR brush is. Now, onward....

I thought I would shave with the best Taylor's cream first. The Rose is just a splendid cream. The scent is the very definition of intoxicating. I admit that I didn't purchase this cream for a very long time since I was concerned it would be too feminine smelling. How wrong I was! The rose is a heady, masculine fragrance, with undercurrents of cedar. Just superb. The lather is super-rich and thick, and protects better than most creams out there. Also seems to do a great job soothing the face. This is really one of the best products out there, you all owe it to yourself to pick some up.

I had a great shave this morning, although it always seems the first use of a
Feather blade is going nick every time. Never seems to be a problem for the rest of the week.

Can't complain, I like it quite a bit. I know for sure I'll buy another brush from this company. It's very soft on the face, small, compact, and produces great lather in just a few swirls.

Here are my old brushes. The top one is a C&E and bottom a Shavemac, both about 6 years old and semi retired. I plan to use the old C&E with the CAR system that I just got today. That method looks a bit rough on the brushes.

Yowza!

Do you like the feel, quality and efficacy greater than the two aformentioned brands? Damn, that shavemac looks something awful :frown: have you tried to re-epoxy it?

Yes, much better all around. The Shavemac is pretty good except for the obvious issue. I may try to repair this weekend, I'll keep the forum posted.

*Was unimpressed with the almond's lather. I seemed unable to produce a slick lather unlike some of the other creams and soaps I've tried. Maybe technique is to blame. Who knows. Maybe I need to become a grasshopper in Ron's School of Lathering in the near future:shaving: or maybe a young jedi in training:a45:
