Sounds fantastic!! Loving this forum BTW
Nice freebies! The mug just arrived. Very nice! Going to try it out tonight! Got samples of the Geo. F Trumper line of products, including the Rose, Sandalwood and Violet shave cream, Sandalwood and Coral skin food, and the Extract of Limes and Marlborough Cologne. Love the business cards as well!
Quite excited, as you may be able to tell!
Glad it all arrived safely. Congratulations and enjoy. Happy shaves!
Just tried out the mug. Figured I'd shave now as opposed to later, because I have a rehearsal and prefer playing with a bald lip.
First off, I am relative newbie. I haven't even finished my first 10 pack of blades.
However, the mug taught me a lot. I was slowly but surely becoming a face latherer, and was using a bowl to lather in, when I bowl lathered. Bowl lathering also just seemed fruitless. Holy cow, this mug produces a nice lather. This mug just about created the lather itself. First pass, I mug lathered with the VDH soap. It created a nice mugful of pillowy shaving nirvana. The brush was covered in the rich goodness. So, first pass went off without a hitch.
Second pass, I tried with a combo of VDH soap and the Bigelow cream, in the mug. More pillowy goodness; enough for 2 passes! Worked great for the second pass!
Third and final pass, I decided to try face lathering with cream only, to see how it compared. Not even close! So, from now on, it's mug lathering for me!
Big thanks, Gareth!
You are most welcome, so glad you enjoy it. Check out the samples of Trumper too, you should be able to get about 2, maybe even 3 shaves out of each sample. A little goes a long way and they create very luxurious lather.
