SMN is just too expensive to consider, so, I'm not sure what direction I'll go in once my stash is used up. Gordon are you referring to SMN Vellutina? http://www.lafcony.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=lafcony&Product_Code=10250 I received 2 bars as a Christmas gift last year but ...

L'Occitane en Provence Extra-Gentle Soap, Milk with Shea Butter 250 gram vegetable based Nice scent. Leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. I've noticed that this soap has very good longevity in the shower. The soap does have an expiration date. I'm not sure if that means that it goes bad if you sto...

Re: what are the early warning signs of RAD?

Uh oh. I was doing so well! I ordered and started with my EJ89l. No need for anything else, works great, is beautiful. Then I ended up at The Groom Room and picked up one of the Shaving Factory / Derby razors because it came in a little case that would work for travel. Ok, there was a good reason f...

If the goal is "being presentable" I can get away for a day or two with a Bic Sensitive and a can of foaming goo.

I'm not saying it is a pleasant shave. I'm just saying I can achieve the appearance of being clean shaven.

This thread stimulated me to inventory my blades too, and here is what I discovered I have. It's ridiculous. (Maybe it's time to start selling some, since I won't live long enough to use all of them.) I've noticed in your SOTD posts that you don't fool around when it comes to blades. Nice collectio...

Maybe if you could compare it to one like I just got you would find it less fresh. I didn't think there was anything wrong with mine either before I did that out of curiosity. My wife immediatly confirmed what I am telling you too. Sure, I'll pick up a small bottle of the new stuff. My sense of sme...

I've got a bottle of 1955 Old Spice and it smells wonderful. I use it on special occasions. It does not seem to have diminished to the extent that I can perceive it.

Re: EJ compared to Merkur

Hello Gents, I am relatively new to wet shaving (4 mths) and I could not be happier with the change. I am getting good quality and pain free shaves after years of trying all different types of disposables, cartridges, and electrics. My wife has appropriated my Merkur Long Handle, which is okay sinc...

Re: Blades--What I Have

I decided to count my blade collection and thought it might be of interest. Note that I don't have quite this total number of blades, since I count an opened package as full--not knowing the actual count--until it is finished (I do not have more than one unopened package of any particular blade, so...
