Face lathering and brush loading (soap)

I've been in the habit of loading the brush on the soap for 15 to 20 seconds, then building the lather on the face. I think I'll change it up a bit: I'm going to follow Murray's practice of building his lather on the soap. Even though I'm currently on the 80th shave in a row with a shaving cream (XP...

Re: "That Lather"

I had the impression Speick and Palmolive might be cousins if not siblings. Regarding ingredients, I believe Moos was more than just Tabac with different scents. The IM scent was one of those that I didn't enjoy over a period of time. Tabac took the opposite side of the track and ended up being one ...

Re: Safety Razor of the Day

General / Feather Pro - first shave on this blade. So smooth, no nicks or cuts. Looking forward to the next 2 or 3 weeks with this one.

Re: Homemade Face Tonic/Aftershave

Re: Homemade Face Tonic/Aftershave

Altered: Superior 70 mentholated splash. Cheap and good, it smells great going on but has no lingering fragrance discernible to me. I add a large quantity of menthol crystals to the big bottle to make it even colder than normal. I also add a large dollop (1/3 tube) of 444 after shave balm. One bottl...
