Got to admit that I really love St. John's West Indian Limes aftershave. It is my favorite of the currently available lime aftershaves and I've tried quite a few of them. From among the unavailable Lime aftershaves I have been hoping the Pusser's will offer theirs again and have even exchanged a few...

Started into a new bar of Claus Porto Lelite (Orange Amber) this week. As has been mentioned it is a vegetable based soap but it is agreeable for my skin type and the scent is quite pleasant. It is one of those 12.34 ounce monstrous sized bars and contains 2% shea butter. The label claims that it is...

Yes, that is a bit of a let down. With a soap we can always use it up, well, as a soap, but a disappointing cream is another matter. If I encounter a cream that I don't like I might as well just discard it because creams don't store very well here in my location, far too dry. As you say a soap can ...

I think I just heard an echo of the Crack of Doom. What a thread that was - 19 pages! I am beginning to feel quite content rather than embarrassed at the amount of soap and cream I have stashed away.

Stropping is the one part of the whole process that gives me some cause for concern. Based on advice I've received from at least two people, I think I'm going to start with the strop laid on a table until I get the hang of the stroke-and-flip. Once I'm accustomed to that, I'll try it with the strop...

Ren -- that's bad news. It's just insane how painful this brush is - it feels like I'm scrubbing my scalp with a metal wire brush! Unfortunately, no shop will take a brush back after you've used it... I'm wondering if soaking the bristles in hair conditioner would soften them; after all, they are h...

The safety razor that is getting used far more than any others is the EJ89L. I like the EJ head so much that I'm considering purchasing a Chatsworth Barley. If I've skipped shaving over the weekend I do like my 1918 Khaki Old Type on Monday morning. Its very good with a few days growth. My razors th...

Rick doesn't specify blades that are in current production so I would say that my favorite DE blade is the Schick Plus Platinum and my favorite injector blade is also the Schick Plus Platinum. In the vintage category many rate the P74 higher but I don't think they are as smooth and friendly on the f...

Worst ever? I bought a fairly sizeable number Bic Metal razors on Amazon for use when traveling etc. I had read some good reviews here and elsewhere. My God they are bad.

How do you like the QED Rose Geranium Mike?

I've got the Fresh Lime and really like it. Was thinking of getting the Rose Geranium. Can you recommend it?

If I go several days without shaving, and have been outdoors a lot (skiing, beaching, etc.,) I will often exfoliate a day or two before I plan my next shave. But it's certainly not a daily thing at all for me. Same here. On days that I do not shave I (gently) use a facial Buf-Puf in the shower rath...

It must be the soap Gordon is speaking of. I can't imagine paying that much for soap unless it was maybe a box of 8-10 bars.
