    Here it is. Following the sign-up thread for the #ctb4, this is now the actual round!

    This means that sign-up is now closed and there won't be any addition at this stage.

    A recap on the rules that were published in the sign-up thread (nothing changed).



    Rules

    - You get the box for 10 days. You can send it out sooner but try not to exceed your allowed time. A post office trip will only take 20 mins of your time.
    - You are responsible to contact the next member. Do this when you receive the box to reduce any delay.
    - Post some pictures of the full content of the box(or a detailed description) when you receive it so we know where it is and what's left in it.
    - Review the items that you use or at least post once about them. No need to do it every day, no need to post a picture either! A thread without updates is not fun.
    - Only Shaving soaps, shaving creams and Aftershaves are currently acceptable. A bit of cologne is okay. I left some beard oil but they don't seem popular... Also, things like a night cream should not go in the box. Do not add any new hardware. Razors (SE/DE/Shavettes), Shave Brushes or razor blades aren't moving much so let's leave those out for now. I left what was in the previous boxes.
    - Avoid bulky items. I.e. a 400ml full bottle of Aftershave will probably end up with 392ml when the round ends, if we are lucky... It's heavy, it takes a lot of space, it might prevent new items to go in the box.
    - If you take an item out, replace it with something equivalent in value. Do not put anything that you wouldn't use. This is not a trash can!
    - Clean any item that you tried.



    Don't forget, it's your job to contact then next person in line when you get the box, do this as soon as you get the box so it won't sit in a dark corner for a long time!

    Special note, Mnt Man may need to be moved a bit between roderick and Senate515.

    I will add some pictures soonish to this thread showing what's in the box.

    When md1234 is done with the box, it will be sent back to me and we should see what happens with it after. If someone wants to take over, they are welcome!

    For those who prefer a direct link: Canada Post - Track - Personal Results Details

    I don't think it will be that long to get to BC but with Canada post, you never know...

    Also, shipping price seems high but keep in mind that the box is crossing the country. Going from a province to the next province(close to each other) is not that bad usually. You should expect a 15$-20$ shipping price. It gives you an idea when there's so many heavy things such as razors or full glass bottles of AS (which were removed)
     
  12. Looking forward to this!

    Thanks so much Luc for putting this together.
     
  13. Darling wife just texted me that and I quote "your baby bum smooth kit arrived" lol.
     
  14. :lol:
     
  15. Was super excited to get home tonight!! What a haul.

  16. So after a lot of smelling, and exploring, I made my decisions for tonight's shave.

    Never tried any of these products before. I love the smell of The Cabin, very rich thick lather. Not sure about the Shark blade, but I'll give it another chance. Tried all the settings from 1 to 9 on the fatboy, and liked 6 the best :)

    Good shave finished with a great EDT
     
  17. Wow that is a haul! Must be like Christmas lol. Good choices to start. What does the EDT smell like?
     
  18. And so it begins. Looks like a great first shave

  19. Was a great shave, the EDT is a very warm mellow scent. Don't get much tobacco from it, but very nice, and the wife couldn't stop sniffing me.
