So as some of you know, this year I converted to a more traditional wet shaving routing. This includes using a brush, traditional soaps/cream, a Double-Edge (DE) safety razor, and even a straight razor on occasions. I’ve been meaning to try and use a shaving oil. It is exactly what it sounds like, an oil that you rub onto your beard, and use as a lubricant to shave with. This is the first shaving oil that I have tried, and to be honest, I can’t say i’m impressed. Now this may have nothing to do… Read Article →

About the product: This is the second RealShaving Co. product that I am reviewing.  It is still part of the “Step 1” range that makes up the “Pre-Shave” routine, preparing your bread, and skin for the actual shave.  This product is designed to soften the hair about to be shaved by warming the hair, and moistening the whiskers.  This is also the second product of this “type”, the other being Gillette’s Thermal Face Scrub.  I could not get a decent picture of the sample bottle( being a small bottle and me not having a decent… Read Article →

This is the follow up to the post is wrote about 2 months ago when I first received my tub of bluebeard’s revenge shaving cream. The reason for waiting so long was to give it a proper run through, and to properly test their beard reduction claim. They claim that after prolonged ( 30 to 60 days ) of continuous usage of their Bluebeard’s revenge shaving cream you will see a noticeable reduction in density, coarseness and length of your beard follicles. I am a every other day shaver, more that I can tolerate it… Read Article →

About 2 weeks ago Real Shaving company ( @realshavingUK @realshavingUS ) sent out a request for bloggers willing to test out and then write about their products.  This seems to be a trending theme  for companies trying to reduce their marketing costs and get their brands known around social media(maybe more on that subject later). I volunterred since i’ve seen these products around ( they are available at our local version of shopper’s drugmart’s, Pharmaprix ) in Montreal, and i’ve been looking at them for a while wanting to try them, the prices are really… Read Article →

BlueBeards revenge shaving cream

This is a follow up to a post from a couple weeks back regarding a product review for BlueBeard’s Revenge.  We my parcel arrived this week ( thanks to the long delays in the Canadian’s postal system due to the strike and subsequent lockout, topic of a previous post as well ). So far I have used it twice,  each with a different brush.  The first one was with the Doubloon brush that they so kindly sent to me as well ( thanks again ), the second, my goto brush, a pure badger Vulvix brush….

I’ve been in contact recently with BlueBeard’s revenge shaving products ( http://www.bluebeards-revenge.co.uk ) , about possibly doing a product review for them.  They are a newish company in the men’s shaving product arena, and their market approach for the moment seems to focus on social media. So when I saw a tweet message go by, about them looking for a couple of blokes that would be interested in some kind of partnership, my interest peaked. I have been keeping an eye out on this company for a couple months, essentially when I first heard about… Read Article →

Recently, well a couple months ago really, I started getting into more, shall we say traditional, shaving techniques.  I had been suffering for years from razor burn, razor bumps, and an overall poor shave, to the point, I dreaded shaving.  I would go a couple days without shaving on purpose, actually to be honest, I would wait until having the facial hair either irritated me, or it just looked ridiculous.  See I have the odd genetics, that leaves me with extremely dark brown hair, almost black, and very bright red facial hair. A couple weeks… Read Article →
