If you dont know GR is THE GENTLEMENS REFINERY, it was started by Perry Gastis who used to be some big wig at T&H, and started his own business with the help of a natural chemist this cream is a harder cream scooping off the top pulls it up a little like proraso pre/post, it lathers great and stable and provides great cushion (lol yall seen that post huh) but my face does feel wonderful after use, this is one of the few products i almost never have to use an a/s with a shame since the balm smells great but i noticed a few things whilst peeking at the box
the first of which was its badger instructions
which say this,... "dip finger into tub, deposit nickel size amount of cream into center core of brush, be sure cream remains at base of the brush, between badger hair, allow brush to absorb hot water by placing it in receptacle, or under hot running water, shake out excess water, begin to massage in"
ive never loaded a brush this way with cream, is this common ?
the other thing i noticed was at the bottom of the ingredients list
"product of canada", this is an american company out of LV, but i didnt even know we had a cream manufacturer here in canada, does anyone else know who might be making this cream for GR, i would be very interested to know if i have a larger selection of cream to choose from, i only keep one or two around as i typically reach for my soaps now but would love to see what was out there
btw since kevan may swing by and ask ;) heres a token lather pic or two
