No....sometimes I think I never should have shared about ANY of this stuff....just left those guys on the original shave forum to stumble along as best they could without me....yep, sometimes I think that....sigh. So, now I say 'NO'!....but it doesn't matter because it's extremely unlikely that I'm going to discover anything else super that other members haven't already found at this point, and I'm done with the 'experimenting' and 'discovery' phases anyway. Ah well....carry on then....

Thank you Gordon for manning up on why all this happened. Should we consider you a bad luck charm when me mention a product that still maybe great and hope and pray that you have not tried it nor will try it in the future and thus keeping it great for the rest of us? :D :D :D :D

Wendell, remember the Clairol commercial: Would you or wouldn't you? If you are ambivalent, it's not the thread that's causing it! :lol:

Only my hairdresser knows for sure -- and for the record that would be my wife -- she's been my barber for 32+ years. Seriously -- I won't let anyone else near my cranium for the purpose of styling or removing hair.

Luckily MWF continues strong and steady -- the one product I hope to never run out of.

If I found the one product that I really wanted and had searched high and low for, I would buy enough to suit me and then I would share the good news.

In other words, I voted "Yes."

If anyone is interested in the French "Donkey Milk" shave soap stick and/or cream I have some of each for sale in the FS forum.

Chris

Someone needs to buy that soap from Chris. I would, but I'm heavily invested already. 8)

He doesn't even need to vote or explain. I believe Wendell's actions reflect his position very simply - he loves MWF and he's committed to telling the world, in quite a positive way. See below:
