Are you sure it is the lanolin? Many people who cannot use Musgo Real can use Mitchel's Wool Fat. Both contain lanolin so I think it may be something in the scent rather than lanolin. Do you have the same reaction with MWF? Yes, this. I can use MWF but not Musgo. I would also love if they brought b...

I love the scent of the shave cream but have trouble using it due to slight irritation. If the soap was non-irritant to my skin, this would work out well.

Something that a simple addition of a next page button would have solved. Going 100% touch was utter stupidity for an e-ink reader.

They make the Overdrive lending system so uncomfortable and cumbersome to use (good luck getting a best seller, and you better read it in under 2 weeks, if you can find the title you want), it goes against everything the e-reader was designed for (quickness, convenience of reading anytime/anywhere)....

Using more soap/cream should offset this. Shave sticks should work especially well because you end up with more soap on your face.

Or, like humans do so very well, you could modify nature to better suit your needs by getting a water softener.

I ordered another Tilley hat from their website, the outback hat, thinking I'll end up looking like the handsome model in the picture.

Been using this for a week now and I love it. Great scent, reminds me a bit of the old Proraso red, and works really well. I just wish they made it in the soft soap type.

Agree. I just used mine this morning. It's a sharp looking razor and a well-built mild shaver, but I honestly do not really understand some of the hype. It really does not shave much differently than a Superspeed or Tech. I had three at one time and one was slightly different than the other two. I ...

In my opinion all of current the e-readers on the market are lacking in some way. I like e-ink, although they could be a bit sharper and truer black and white, hopefully the next gen will correct this. Built in dimming backlight like the new Nooks look great, this addresses a big shortcoming of e-in...
