Hydrolast Shaving Method???

Post by Cicerosecundus » Thu Dec 20, 2007 3:24 pm

Anybody use the Hydrolast materials: soap cube, shaving creme and cutting balm recommended by the founder of the "Method" shave? If so, what are your reactions?

Tried it all. A long way around a good shave. The after shave conditioner is very good and something to consider. I prefer the Shaving Gallery, Castle Forbes creams & the Martin De Candre semi hard soap.

I use the cube, shaving paste and AS conditioner. All three are excellent products. I get great shaves every time. In my experience it does not take any longer than any other shave and I shave with a straight razor.

I agree with Northadams. "A long way around a good shave." There are plenty of other products that provide just as good of a shave for me. The aftershave conditioner is top notch though. IMO it does take longer for the whole shave with cleanup and is not worth it.
