Re: Musgo Real soap

delayed the morning shave yesterday to await arrival of the musgo and will be using it again on friday with 'hard' water this time. will update then, but for now: I like the shape of the puck.

Re: English Fern tallow soap by Penhaligon's

not a single one - can match the overall quality
There are things in life worth sacrificing for...a good shaving soap or cream is one of them!

Re: Musgo Real soap

i looked at four sites. fendrihan and sn have different colour boxes, gc and amzn have the same colour box, but its nothing like the other two. This is the hassle of buying reformulated soaps etc.

Re: Project House

Re: What is it about brushes?

p.s. on a personal level, i think that the 24 is too big for me and so even if i could find one i probably would never use it. I have a stunning example of a chubby 3 that suffers from the same non use due to size.....soaps like MdC etc come in packaging that makes using a big brush almost impossibl...

On the subject of fidelity

For the most part I use the same setup every time i shave, but the other day I was going through my shave box and found a tube of coates rose cream.
