Face Skin Care Ultimate Comfort Shave Cream

Email Print PDF

If you’re viewing our website, perhaps you’re trying to find out if there is a better way to shave.  Perhaps it’s because you’ve found wet shaving and love the experience you receive from an excellent, smooth, and pain-free shave using our tried-and-true methods of shave cream, hot water, a brush, and a fine razor.  James Wood, an entrepreneur and Air Force veteran, was introduced to a shaving system over 20 years ago that worked: Lab Series Maximum Comfort Shave Cream.  The thing that set this cream apart from the rest was its use of benzocaine, a mild numbing agent.  This formulation helped its users achieve pain-free shaves, albeit synthetically, with a high degree of customer satisfaction.  Jim was a loyal customer until a few years ago when Lab Series changed the formulation and took out the benzocaine.  Customer reviews on the Lab Series website filled with expressions of dissatisfaction with the new “advanced” formula.  With 90 reviews of the shave cream to date, it only averages a two-star rating out of five.  Frustrated, Jim sought alternatives to his favorite cream, and when nothing comparable was found, he did what any successful entrepreneur would do: he made his own.

Wm. Neumann & Co. 1911 Pre-Shave Oil

Email Print PDF

Previously I reviewed the Wm. Neumann & Co. 1911 Shave Soap, a masculine, woody, yet balanced fragrance made with citrus, sandalwood, rosewood, vanilla, cardamom and nutmeg. This frangrance is described as "a smooth, masculine, and timeless American classic reminiscent of John Browning's legendary Model 1911 Colt .45." I paired the Shave Soap with the 1911 Pre-Shave Oil for an even better shave.

Parker Travel Safety Razor

Email Print PDF

There are some things that simply should not be used when traveling: Travel Weights (that fill up with water so that you can have dumbbells on the go) or the Travel Infrared Sauna (that assembles into a personal wet sauna suite in case you need an immediate increase in humidity). When it comes to shaving, however, there are many travel products that can be helpful when you are away from home. Usually travel products are under-sized, which can make using the product awkward or less comfortable. The Parker Travel Safety Razor proves that you can have both comfort and portability in a quality travel razor.

Bison Made Black Cordovan Razor Strop

Email Print PDF

It was a bright Sunday afternoon when my wife and I took our two youngest children to the ballpark. My son had his cap and glove; my daughter was slathered in sunscreen. We were ready to enjoy some hotdogs and cheer for our Triple-A team. I navigated my big Chevy truck into the parking lot to pay the attendant, and there was a sign, “Complimentary parking for Lexus drivers.” The black sign itself had a snob-factor with its sparkly gold lettering. It was a smart campaign by the local Lexus dealership to make those drivers feel privileged, while the rest of us low-lifes had to fork out the five bucks to park. Yes, it was only $5, but sometimes it is the small luxuries that make you feel like a major leaguer. In shaving terms, sometimes it is an accessory rather than a blade that makes all the difference. This article introduces the Bison Made Black Cordovan Razor Strop.
