Yes you did and I thank you again. But I'm not touching any of his products until he posts up some damned ingredients. Hugo, PM me if you want the sample.

I will know on and for ever use the peppermint a/s and will also use it as my daily moisturizer. The cube is now a must have for me as well...I use this to wash my face and my complextion has turned around. The lather I make with it when I shave is awsome and I receive great shaves. Sorry to be frank but I could care less if he put ground up rat fecces in his products....they work and thats what matters. I dont go to a restraunt and ask what every miserable ingredient is before I eat it. But ill keep quiet.

Pretty good for an unlicensed guy

I found this explanation to be very useful. Charles posts a warning, though: "Nor, under any circumstances, is any third party licensed or authorized to teach the Roberts Method of Wet Shaving."

So I got an unauthorized lesson? I guess I'll have to go back to Palmolive Brushless!

But your explanation probably bumped up the sales of CR's products...

And I think Charles is just trying to keep others from charging for lessons he gives away.

P.S. These are some other real-life uses for the acrynom RWMS:

I have been using the CAR products and doing the Method Shaving process for about 1.5 weeks, and all I can say is that I am simply blown away by the results.

I have never experienced shaves this close or comfortable ever. My skin looks and feels amazing.

I always ask my boys (4 & 8) to feel my face after a particularly good shave - the other day after using my Feather Artist & Progress, my 4yr old came up and felt my face - he said "Dad, how'dja do that?" and on hearing that my 8yr. came up and felt my face - his only response was "Whoaaa".

I tried an experiment this morning, where I tried to sub the cutting balm and a/s for some Mont Source shaving oil I have and Trumpers Coral Skin Food.

I used my Feather Artist and Slant razor. No comparison, in terms of comfort. While the resulting end shave was not bad (not "Whoaa" status), I had far more nicks and small cuts - part of this may have had to do with the pairing of two very sharp and potentially aggressive razors - but while shaving the blades did not glide as easily or smoothly on form 3.

The Mont Source shaving oil was pitiful when compared to the CAR Cutting Balm -

Usually may face feels soft, supple and conditioned - this a.m. it was was on the edge of feeling raw (note: it feels much better now 3 hrs after the shave).

So I for one am sold, and compared to my original routine, Method Shaving is simpler, faster and provides significantly better results.
