Re: The state of the current English Shaving soaps

Ok, perhaps you know something I don't and that would not surprise me. I have only been able to find Crabtree & Evelyn at Amazon and that's it. I also really don't like middle men like amazon, however I do do business with re-sellers, such as Safeway. I have not been able to find Crabtree and Evelyn...

Wiped shave soap and shave stick, please help.

Please help, a friend of mine and I have been talking about trying out an Arko Shave stick and some wiped shave soap. I have no idea how to use a shave stick, and as for the wiped, what is a wiped shave soap? Is it like shave cream? How do I use a tub of the wiped?

Re: Nostalgic Shave

I have done some nostalgia shaves, unfortunately the first soap that I used when I started wet shaving has become proprietary to Amazon, and I never do proprietary anything, thus I am out looking for a new shave soap brand to rely on. My current trial shaves have been with Captain's Choice and CO Bi...

Re: The state of the current English Shaving soaps

Crabtree and Evelyn makes great lather, if it wasn't proprietary to Amazon I would buy it, I have this thing against proprietary (Available from only one source), this is why I don't buy Crabtree and Evelyn and Apple anything. I have nothing against apple just the fact that its proprietary.

Captain's Choice

Any opinions of this brand of shave creams? I bought a sample pack of the creams and so far I like what I see, although I think I am going to rely on the soaps rather than the creams. The Bay Rum is certainly very strong, the lime is a lot more subtle and did not try the sandalwood this morning, tri...

Re: Creams or Soaps

What brand makes the best quality soap, not necessarily the cheapest?
