Re: Grön Lycka shaving soap

I understand Swedish if it's spoken slowly and I can read it, as well as Danish and Norwegian. My spoken ability with these languages, however is poor.

Grön Lycka shaving soap

From Sweden I'd like to present a lovely artisan soap named Grön Lycka which I received on Friday by mail. Here's my review of it: Ease of lathering: 9/10--Whips up to a nice, slick lather very fast and easily. Kind of thirsty, however. Longevity of lather: 9/10--Stays stable throughout a shave so n...

Ease of lathering: 9/10--Lathers very easily, quickly, as well as thickly. Longevity of lather: 9/10--Very good stab...

My first Canadian freezing shaving soap

Mr Brian Hoffman of Barrie, Ontario who owns the First Canadian Shave Soap Company created a very nice, FREEZING soap which he named Polar Vortex. Here's a sincere review about it!

My review of Krampert's Bay Rum shaving soap

Longevity of lather: 10/10--A twenty pass shave is easy to get. The lather lasts and lasts! General skincare: 8/10--Pre...

Re: Krampert's Finest Frostbite

Here's my take on it: Alcohol burn: 3/10--Very little! Scent: 8/10--Very exotic! Longevity of scent: 6/10--Lasts just long enough but never intrudes on a real fragrance! General skincare: 10/10--Very, very cold menthol sensation with fabulous soothing! Price: 7/10--Quite reasonable from Italian Barb...

Re: Krampert's Finest Frostbite Shaving Soap

Ok, here's my review. Great job, Brian! I always wanted to try Brian's Frostbite soap and finally I got to do so after buying some from Italian Barber.

This may have been the longest I waited for a package to arrive but it was sure worth the wait. Is this soap ever awesome! (use a smaller brush because the container is small!) Ease of lathering: 10/10--Explodes into rich lather immediately. Longevity of lather: 10/10--Fantastic. Perfect stability f...

Killer-cold!

Has anyone ever tried Barrister & Mann's Arctique aftershave? Well, if you haven't I suggest you listen to me and take my advice.

1) It's awesome stuff!
2) You better be able to tolerate extremely-intense menthol!
3) Just use a SMALL amount or your eyes will be tearing all day!
4) It's that simple!

Where did you see this? I've been googling it to try to see what ripples it's been making but haven't seen anything.
Brian, you sure know your stuff! :D
