Re: Did you enjoy a cigar today?

Red Dot toro: Red Dot has a filler blend of half Jamaican and half Nicaraguan
tobaccos with a Nicaraguan binder. The wrapper is a choice of a natural
Ecuador Habano or a maduro Costa Rican which results in a mild to medium bodied cigar.

Re: Foam consistency...when is it right?

Thank you guys. My 8th shave was great due to the prep work. As they say the proof is in the pudding or better yet, foam...getting better.

So thankful for all of your positive advice and supportive feedback.

Re: Foam consistency...when is it right?

As they say: a picture is worth a 1000 words. Before I try t describe something that is hard to describe and would better be seen, why don't you try YouTube and search for "shaving for beginners" or "shave with brush"? This way you may grasp the concept much easier than by trying visualize a descri...

Foam consistency...when is it right?

I'm new to wet shaving (less than 10 shaves) but I'm still having the concern that my foam is not of the consistency of yogurt. It's foamy, and lathers, but it's more foamy than having a thick consistently and is light in spots when applied (I can still see my skin through the foam). So, I think I'm...

Fourth DE shave in the shower...

Suprisingly, yesterday I decided for the sake of time, my fourth shave would be both my face and head in the shower-risky I know. I showered, and used a new shave bowl. It was a small plastic salsa bowl that was on sale in the grocery store for $1.20. I had looked at a lot of cups, mugs and bowls ma...

Shave soaps revealed....

Stupid question: why are the Bond Street, Tabak and other shave soaps brands exclusively for shaving? I mean I used bars of Dove and Pre de provence in my life, but I don't think you can shave with those. So, what distinguishes a soap as one to shave with? Thought I knew the answer, but after headin...

Third DE shave complete...

So, I started to see some stubble on my chin and decided to try my third wet shave. A friend's suggested I shave at night before bed, to which I agreed. It allows me a quiet environment, a relaxing state after my shower and no time constraints (rushing through the process) like the mornings. I even ...

Unexpected 2nd head shave A-Ok

I had skipped shaving my head yesterday and only focused on my face. After much thought, I decided to either go back to using my multiblade on my head or alternate days with my DE. Due to my water heater acting up after a couple of power outages during yesterday's thunderstorms. I couldn't shave my ...
