I just bought a bottle of Cornhusker's Lotion. Mantic mentioned it favorably in one of his wet shaving videos, although there was a disclaimer not to take any of his product mentions as endorsements.

I'll try it when I shave, tonight.

Tom, es gibt viele Cremes aus Ungarn, jetzt. Ich denke Figaro ist eines, und Barbon ist auch ein anderes. Ich habe auch Kruidvat Seife, aber leider war meiner Haut beschadigt. Aber der Schaum ist sehr geschmakt!

Lieber Grusse von Uns!

After the first try, I love it. It leaves my face silky smooth without a trace of greasiness (the label proclaims it to be oil free). It has a pleasant, but very faint aroma. Great stuff!

Yep Derby Exclusive delivers like he promised Free cream

so well how about that. it must be the same factory both from Turkey.
I checked the ingredients Arko versus Derby very similar almost identical ingredients but Derby uses Coconut Oil fatty acid and Arko coconut acid might even be the same again. there are a few other ingredients into Derby's cream like PEG-2M, the basis for both creams is like a 90% similarity or higher the different parts are into the parfum Should have compared ingredients of the Menthol Arko instead oh well...

I've got a tub of PREP Crema dermoprotettiva ,
one of the 2 traditional alternatives to Proraso Pre/post cream available in Italy (the other is/was 3P ).
This cream is softer than the proraso (but the proraso i have is more than 20 years old so it probably has dried up).
Composition:
water,stearic acid, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, paraffinum liquidum, camphor, menthol, eugenia cariophillus, eugenol, mentha piperita, limonene, methyl salicilate, thymol, sorbitol, potassium hydroxide, imidazolidinyl urea, ammonium hydroxide, methylparaben, propylparaben.

The scent is of camphor but goes away quite quickly if one applies sparingly as like with proraso, a little goes a long way.

Jeff,
That's good stuff, if you put a few drops of glycerin on it before you lather it, you'll get an amazing shave.

Is there any scent left to it? It has a really nice herbacious scent. :smile:

Great shavers ,the Gold will give you great shaves im sure.
The silver is my favorite razor all time but then the one made in UK with a solid TTO knob which adds more weight to the razor.

The Milord looks better in person, too much flash I guess. The 40' SS is in very good shape after cleaning.

Top Left:
Lasco 5/8 Slide E-Z Wedge : scales and blade in very good condition
La Salle Products Inc. Minneapolis, Minn.
Top Right:
J.A. Henckels 5/8 Zwillingswerk Solingen 1/2 Hollow ground Round Tip: scales and blade is excellent condition. This blade only needed a few laps on the strop and the shave ready edge came right back amazing!!!
Bottom:
Crown Razor Co. Boston, Mass. 5/8 Square Tip 1/4 Hollow: excellent shape scales and blade are in excellent condition. This one only needed a touch up on the 8K to bring to shave ready.

Under $30 for the lot. I'll start working on the wedge tomorrow. It will need one conservative pyramid to get it ready. I'm happy with the score today.

After deciding I had enough razors, I of course broke down and bought some more on Ebay. In a lot I scored a nice Gillette Slimboy, a very nice Aristocrat, and a very good shaving Gillette travel razor. Also won a very cool gold Schick Repeating Razor, which actually loads blades! Also, a good friend cleaning out his attic found a NOS Gillette Super Adjustable, new in the package, original cost was $2.15. It's too pristine to shave with, so I'll probably sell it on Ebay, where the last one went for $100. That should fuel some more RAD.

and then my Moss Scuttle, arrived...Shaving heaven.

I'll add some pics.

BTW, I am curious, what is so great about the Aristocrat? It's pretty but doesn't really shave any better than my Slimboy, my Fatboy, or even my Superspeed. Am I missing something?
