    This is a good week so far

    Yesterday I got the box from Bornholm

    Later a package from www.proshave.dk arrived:





    Today I found a local store that carries the full Tabac line, naturally I had to add a puck of the shaving soap in bowl to my den. About time I get to try the fabled Tabac


    Regards.

    Left to right: Master Bay Rum, Jack Black Supreme Cream, L'occitane Cade shave cream (awful), C.O. Bigelow Barber black after shave balm, C.O. Bigelow shave cream, C.O. Bigelow pre-shave oil, Body Shop Maca root shave cream, Maca root wash off shave oil.

    I really regret the Cade cream. I tried it yesterday with a new personna blade in my mekur barber pole. Tore my face up BAD, and I had to re-shave later because all the stubble that ended up getting left was irritating things further.

    I like the smell of Cade, but I would probably go for the soap, and it's pricey.

    Got this, shaved with it then when I took it apart for rinsing I cut the crap out of my thumb(head was stuck). I should have used a washcloth but I wasn't thinking.

    To each his own, but you may want to give the Cade another try! My first attempt with it was average, however after adjusting the cream to water ratio ( I use a bit more of this cream when mixing than I do when using other creams ) it provides a very luxurious, slick lather and when used in combination with the Cade aftershave it has a nice masculine, woodsy fragrance!
    Regards,

    Default Old Spice Lighthouse

    I was tidying up a bit on Monday when I discovered an old bottle full of Old Spice Aftershave in a Lighthouse shaped decanter. It was given to me as a gift from my Aunt & Uncle some 25-30 years ago. They used to give me Old Spice aftershave every year for Christmas after I started shaving. I always thought it was for old men and used to give it away ( I wish I had it now ). I never said anything to them as I didn't want to hurt their feelings and thought the gesture was very nice and thoughtful. I was pleasantly surprised when I found this bottle stashed away, and was anxiously awaiting my shave yesterday (Tuesday) morning to give it a try. It smells great and still soothes the face. I wonder if I think it smells great because now I am an "old" guy!
    My Aunt passed away about seven years ago and I really miss her, so It was a nice remembrance to not only have found it, but to finally use the gift I was given so many years ago.
