My QED Soaps are on the way!

Post by Chris »

I can't wait to FINALLY try these! I'm getting one tub of Lime, one tub of Lavendar, one tub of Sandalwood, and one of Charle's new scnets--Anise/Lavender in a Shave Stick. I have been very anxious to try these...I'll post my impressions as soon as I get them!

I'm estimating mine will arrive on tuesday. The straight razor Sam is giving me should arrive on monday. I do think I will use the QED soap for my first straight shave. It's a moment I'm looking forward to!

Chris & Peter,

I have been using for the last few weeks some Anise/Lavender shave soap in a tub from Charles (it's not available yet). I will post a review later tonight, but I will say you won't be disappointed!

You will love the Lavender and the Sandalwood. When I spoke with Charles a week ago, he mentioned that the Anise/Lavener soap was coming. I melted my Lavender and Sandalwood out of the container to put them in mugs so I would not have to lather on my face (I like a lot of room to work), and it worked wonderfully. I am NOT suggesting that you try this, but it worked for me. Charles is an upstanding merchant, and he took about 30 minutes out of a busy Saturday to answer my questions.

Charles has been busier than a 2-peckered billy-goat with orders and hasn't had time yet to amend the website.
It is in his plans, he said to get this stuff on there, but we have been keeping him too busy with orders!

I have been trying to order some from Charles but my wife had limited my shaving budget lately. Since I have been into this recently, I have been spending more on my shaving supplies than she has on cosmetics.

Any thoughts on how to get around that gents? Should I hide some money in the sock drawer?

I am afraid if I let her use my brush and shave cream on her legs, she will take them over and not let me use them anymore, (that might help me get a nicer brush and more scents) however, I would love to have her included in this. Now I wonder how I could get her fishing?!!

Art,

Some gents on this board offered me help with this same problem. As I recall, their advice was something like this:

Aggressive tactic -
1. Look at all of those shoes you own. Even if I buy XXX, I still will have spent less money on myself than you have on yourself.

Gentle tactic (most highly recommended) -
1. I need to buy XXXX because I want to be as handsome as I can for you

Only in our dream tactic -
1. Why don't we take turns using this new XXXXX on each other and see how much fun wetshaving can be.

Best of luck
