Does anyone have a recommended vendor that will put together a sample of aftershave balms, soaps, etc? I'm not necessarily looking for a pre-packaged sample pack, but I hesitate to drop $20+ bucks on an ASB that might not (let's be honest, probably won't) work on my skin. And of course, I'd like to try some of the classics, like Proraso, 444 etc that everyone seems to hold in high regard. I'm still a n00b, so I haven't tried many products.
In terms of soaps/shave creams, I've tried:
GFT: Didn't like…lather disappeared in no time
Mama Bear: Love the lubrication and scent, working my way through the soap sampler.
Union Street Soapworks: Didn't like, didn't lather well or maintain a consistency…scent was mediocre
Every Man Jack was my standby for a while, and I think I like it.
L'Occitane Cade: Just tried it, and I really like the scent and moisturizing qualities.
GFT Skin Food: Thought I liked it, until it made my skin break out…apparently too oily for me.
