Williams Mug and Aqua Velva – A Classic Shaving Duo

Williams Mug and Aqua Velva - A Classic Shaving Duo Pre-shave Thoughts For many years, I've seen Williams Mug Shaving Soap on the local grocery store shelf and mostly dismissed it as an antiquated relic of the past.  Not until my journey into the depths of wetshaving did I give Williams Mug an honest look.  In preparation for this classic shave, I've enjoyed a cleansing hot shower with the venerable Jack Black cleanser which does a fantastic job preparing my face for a shave.  I [...]

Body Shop Maca Root – Fierce Shave

Body Shop Maca Root Pre-shave Thoughts: This morning I'm reaching for an old staple in my shave den, The Body Shop Maca Root shave cream and aftershave balm.  Both the shave cream and aftershave balm include the interesting maca root ingredient that is beloved by native populations living in the peruvian Andes and also by many practitioners of new age healing arts worldwide.  From what I read on the Internet, maca root is claimed to treat and sometimes cure just about anything from anemia and [...]

Pinaud Clubman – Original Class

Pre-shave Thoughts: Today's shave is destine to be a classic.  A few months ago I pre-ordered a puck of the new Pinaud Clubman Shave Soap, and I recently received it in the post.  I've had about a half dozen shaves with the Pinaud Clubman soap since getting my hands on it, and I've been rather pleased.  This morning I'm pairing it with my favorite aftershave from Pinaud Clubman, Classic Vanilla.  This should make for a great shave.  Let's give Pinaud Clubman's new shave soap a go.   [...]

Palmolive Cream – Classic Clean

Pre-shave Thoughts: This morning I've decided to try out a newer arrival in my shave den in the form of a shave cream.  This one is an Italian import version of Palmolive Cream, a standard shave cream for many, especially the European audience.  I must be honest that I really don't get excited for shave creams.  In my experience they come up rather short when compared to quality shaving soaps.  That said, I quite enjoy the Palmolive tallow soap shave stick that is one of my [...]

Pacific Shaving Co. – Caffeinated Shave

Pre-shave Thoughts: Recently, I was perusing the local Target men's grooming aisle and discovered a few shaving products that looked somewhat interesting.  This morning I think I'm going to try a shaving cream and aftershave set from Pacific Shaving Company.  Both the Pacific Shaving Co. cream and aftershave are contained within good travel-sized tubes and are marketed to contain caffeine which is a strong vasoconstricting antioxidant that can help reduce redness.  Let's give this Pacific Shaving Co. caffeinated shave a go.   The Shave: Preparation: [...]

LEA Professional – Barbershop Cream

Pre-shave Thoughts: This morning I'm looking forward to using a newer product in my shave den that I've only shaved with a few times.  While I typically prefer shaving soaps, I do have a few shaving creams that I just don't reach for all that often for some reason.  I'll be shaving with LEA Professional cream.  My face is feeling pretty healthy this morning, with a little bit of dryness from sun exposure.  Let's shave.   The Shave: Preparation:  Hot shower Razor:  Merkur 37c HD Slant Bat [...]
