Our local L'Occitane did not have any samples of cream to give out so I brought in my own sample tub one day and convinced the gal to let me fill it up from the tester. Cade Shaving Cream is...
I don't understand the concept of worrying about how other guys decide to maintain or not maintain their facial hair. There is nothing inherently special or correct about being clean shaven. I...
Prepare for a long read. The 3017 process is described here.
Basically it means using up your soaps and creams by shaving with just one soap until it's gone. Finish one soap, then move on to the...
I've got the MW sandalwood coming up next. I've used about half of a sample and plan on using the remaining portion until it's gone. This is my favorite sandalwood scent of the 4 or 5 that I've...
Mama Bears shaving soap - burns like hell and the scents are way too intense for me.
Turkish #6 shaving brush - it smelled like it was made from the hair around the horses arse and quite a void in...
My daughter has a volleyball tournament in Schaumberg next weekend and I'm going to try to sneak away to visit Merz one afternoon.
dpittman70 is correct. While previous versions of the L'Occitane cream may have been horrible the new version, out now about 8 month or more, if fantastic stuff. I was able to get a sample from our...
With as many creams as I have, I wish most of them had parabens to help them last longer.
I can get lots of lather from Arko, but I find it rather drying for my face.
What I suggest, is rather than chase down all of these great recommendations, pick one from each category. Immediately these categories come to mind:
Triple milled tallow (DR Harris, Tabac, MWF)...
When everyone has finished responding, and you've read through all of the posts, you'll come to the conclusion that you need to try them all!
I'd toss it and not thing twice about it.
Not THE easiest, but one of the easiest. Many of the RazoRock soaps and Arko I find a little easier to lather, but MW is easier for me than Tabac, last Toja, Cade, OBR, Mama Bears, etc. For ease...
I find MW to provide some of the BEST lather of any of the 40+ soaps I own. it's in my top three soaps and definitely one of the easiest soaps to lather that I own. I don't really pay attention to...
Great advice, this.
Way to go Mbuckwash! I'm glad you kept with it and learned just how wonderful the product can be.
It is interesting...according to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum website, the symbol has been used for over 5000 years, and the term "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit "svastika", meaning "good...
I have the both the regular vintage and the menthol vintage. Blindfolded, I could not tell the difference in scent or lather. The only way you know it's menthol is by looking at the box. I'm sure...
I wouldn't go out of your way to get a puck just because it's menthol. The menthol effect is long gone. Get one because it's vintage, sure, but don't pay a premium just because it's menthol, but...
Not only were the creams reformulated, they're now made in USA rather than UK. My USA made Ocean Kelp is fantastic stuff!
There was a post on a different board last month where he directly said XXX = AdP. He didn't imply it or insinuate, he flat out said it was the same.
I find MW easier to make fantastic lather with, but after figuring out Mikes, I can make great lather with it too. They're both worth trying and both are great soaps. I lean towards MW, but not by...
I've only smelled 4 sandalwood scents, but MW Sandalwood is my favorite. Others have been TOBS, T&H, and GFT. It's not a sharp scent like TOBS, but more of a well rounded scent. One you can inhale...
Strange as it may seem, every MW scent I've used is my favorite scent
Lily of the Valley
Prospect Creek (peppermint)
Rosalimone (rose & lemon)
Absolutely phenomenal scents...
I must have gotten lucky then, mine closes just fine. I did discover the trick to opening it easily was to just give it a squeeze and it pops right off.
What's wrong with the RR caps? I've never had any trouble with them.
AOS - Unscntd
AOS - Ocean Kelp
Arko - Cool
Dalan D'Men - Sensitive
Derby - Menthol
eShave White Tea
Herbs of Bulgaria
You must be looking at the 1.5oz MB puck.
Let's look at unscented, bar or puck only:
1.5oz - $4
5oz - $9
If you're interested in both you should certainly try both. They each offer samples at a reasonable price. For me, however, the choice is easy. I had 9 or 10 samples of Mama Bears but after each...
I've only tried Burberry London and love it. I need to try some of their others.
L'Occitane Cade Shaving Cream - beautiful lather and I enjoyed every moment of it!
Here's what the Mayo Clinic has to say about sodium level is softened water:
But seriously, bypass the cold water to the kitchen sink. Hard water tastes so much better than soft water.
I don't know how it affect your septic system, but you don't have to worry about your drinking water. Around here, when you put in a water softener, you bypass the water softener for the cold water...
If you want to save some money, they're fairly easy to install too, as long as you have the space. It's about a 3 beer job.
Everything man makes is ultimately made from natural materials, no? And some of the most potent poisons are "all natural", right?
I can honestly say that Mystic Water shave soap is some of the easiest lathering soap in my den. Always more lather than I can use, and of excellent quality, and the way my face feels when I done...
An excellent plan! There's not reason to settle for less than the best.
Those that are using silica packets, are you doing anything to dry them out from time to time? They can only absorb so much moisture before needed to be recharged, often by putting them in the oven...
