I say yea! I have to do three passes on my neck and no matter which way I go, I am going against the grain. My whiskers there seem to grow in three directions within a 1 1/2 square inch area (on both sides of my neck). However, the road rash is not extensive or extreme at all, even in my pre-Merkur ...

Rooibos

Has anyone heard of or tried a tea called Rooibos? A lady I work with brought some back from her recent trip to Africa and just made a pot of it for us. Very smooth. Believe it or not, it's made by Lipton, although I can't seem to find it here in states. It's on the Lipton website but through their ...

Flipping Blades

Here is a question for consideration for you gents, To extend the life of a DE blade, any thoughts about taking the blade out of the razor and physically turning it over? Do you think flipping it would extend the life of the blade or just a waste of time? My thought process is that while shaving wit...

Is there a minimum number of brushes being made? I would LIKE to get in on it, however, the wife has severely restricted my budget for the next month. Maybe I could throw her this as a Fathers Day suggestion from the kids.

Also, what is the estimated cost of these brushes?

Thanks

Free samples are nice but keep one thing in mind it is costly for the company sending them out. How much does it cost you to mail a small package at the post office? Those little containers to put the goodie in cost $$$. What is the chance of you really going back to buy something? We have a small ...

I just came off Celebrity cruise to Bermuda a few weeks ago and every day on the ship, they had afternoon tea with Twinings Teas. It looked like the packaging was completely different from what I get at my local tea supplier on the bagged teas, and it seemed to taste much stronger as well, which I l...

As my mug, I use a used Winnie the Pooh plastic cup that in it's previous life use to be a container that held cheerios for my daughters when they were teething. It has a wider opening than a coffee mug and a somewhat rounded bottom. And since I shave in the shower, I don't have to worry about it fa...
