Oh Lord, Looks like your up in Portland I see-even more rain than we get. Arizona sounds nice this time of year anyway.

Chris, It's getting cold up here in Vermont and in that environment people in general drink a bit less water. Down in Arizona as your name suggests it may be a bit easier to drink those recommended 8 glasses one always hears about. The wife went in for a mole checkup with the dermatologist in New Yo...

Trumpers, for some time (& maybe still do) used a picture of a Simpson Chubby little guy on their cover resting in a pot of rose.

Chris, I have been using the Osea Ocean cleanser for a couple of weeks now and love it. I only used soap in the past but now prefer the OSEA. Maybe it's the high concentration of seaweed and all the benefits it provides that have me excited about this product. The Shaving Gallery is a Creightons mad...

Richard, Don't say that for the love of God. You know it's coming back. While in town today I could smell boxes and boxes of the Coates in that airplane 37,000 feet up passing OVER Bolton and landing in an airstrip near my small village.

Sam, As someone who has been around a while price does become an issue for me, you Gordon and who ever else spends a bit on this stuff. The Shaving Gallery cream is quite costly but when one uses it day to day it seems like a cup of cheap coffee or tea. I really just love to see new 'English' produc...

Mr. JDavis, If parabens are a concern check out the Shaving Gallery cream (or creams-not sure if they discontinued some) produced by a Trumper veteran. Big fan myself.

Michael, Well the baths of Caracella smelled like something akin to family, friends, kids, or...poopoo! Just like shaving make sure to look at the right ingredients for your direction. Veterans day here and in the UK. Let's get those lads back home.

Cutman, Sorry for the delay but I have been revisiting the Shaving Gallery creams of late and I have really come to enjoy their Tea Tree & Lime and have more on order. Not a traditional English lime scent but more of a citrus note I guess due to the grapefruit & sweet orange added. They seem to have...

Christian, If it's any consolation I dropped my Chubby 1 travel brush some three years ago now and the small crack on top has not grown at all. BTW, although a late bloomer you will notice the Tulip being mentioned more and more these days. It's all about the handle, handle, handle with these brushe...

Christian, At 6'5 with large hands I feel quite comfortable witht the T4 handle but I concur with Gordon's reasoning on the T3 handle being a perfect fit for his needs. Either will serve you well with the T4 as a cream brush and the T3 as a great all around cream & soap brush. Chris M. has a new T4 ...

Just a guess but I have a feeling like his shaving sticks this new item may be more 'natural' than anything else. With the Harris milk just finished it's nice to see this thread appear. Hope to hear more about it.

Steve's Milk Churn looks like it will fill those Harris soap bowls just right. It's been confirmed the T3 works well I think even with those smaller bowls. Great to see the conversation turn towards the handles once again. The Simpson handles are quite unique in shape and form.

I have really been enjoying the products from Mountain Rose Herbs recently and if your fairly new to clays like I am you might be pleasantly surprised by their Rhassoul. It may or may not detoxify quite as much as their green clay but it seems to leave the face softer in the end. Great stuff. I was ...

The SG lime/tea tree cream is not on their website yet and I had forgotten about the review from Chris. Maybe the Bergamot tub dried a bit upon arrival. Who knows. I know it's an unusual scent and some may not take to it at all but I became quite fond of their Cedarwood offering. With the Lime now a...

Hey Ken, A big fan myself for a new thing except for the wife and young monkeys' (four now-how did this happen?) I was quite fond of the SG creams when they appeared, not so much for their scents but for the clean ingredients. I did find the cream a bit too thick for my liking (a bit like the old Ta...
