Things have indeed changed around here.

One of the products that works for me is the Proraso balm applied after a witch hazel splash. Witch hazel would take care of the burn for you and you could try a balm on the cheap.

It isn't pink. No scent that I can tell.

It's good to see that so many of you from back then are still here. I should check in more often. The only time I don't use my "moss" is when I'm traveling. My son and I are taking turns staying with my mother who just had bypass surgery. She just lives across town but I hate to risk breaking my scu...

My very first "real" creams were Coates Sandalwood and (I think) Rose. In the plastic tubes (sorry, Gordon). Really looking forward to this.

I bought both scents shortly after joining this fine group. Sandalwood wasn't available then. The Lime is my favorite -- by far. Coral bottle is still half full after 5 years. Hope that helps. Wish they had a Lavender scent. Sandalwood is my least favorite scent (right next to rose). Lol * Last edit...

The Sweet Almond is one of my favorites. Not an "almond extract" scent at all but unique. Great shaves!!!

I prefer Burt's Bees over Carmex because it smells better and seems to work just as well for me. Also, the tins are small enough to carry in my pocket in the winter months. I was always losing Chap-Stick because the tubes would roll off somewhere when I sat them down. That bright yellow Burt's tin i...

I was just reading about that on CNN's website before I came here. I immediately thought of you, Sam. Shame about the old church.

Take care.
