Beau Brummell for Men – Dandy Shave

Beau Brummell for Men - Dandy Shave Pre-shave Thoughts I usually start my Shave Experiences with a nice hot shower to begin to prep my face for a close shave.  Today is no different.  I've been using the Jack Black facial cleanser for awhile now and it rivals my old standby, Kiehl's Facial Fuel.  Like Kiehl's, the Jack Black cleanses without over drying my face.  It removes any oily build-up from my whiskers, has a clean, light mint fragrance, and just feels great [...]

Barrister and Mann Hallows – Fear the Dark

Barrister and Mann Hallows Pre-shave Thoughts: This morning's shave is one of the more highly anticipated shaves in some time.  I was fortunate enough to acquire the seasonal release, limited edition Barrister and Mann Hallows shaving soap and aftershave set back when they went up for sale at the stroke of midnight, 23 October.  The product arrived smartly packaged just a couple of days ago with plenty of time for a proper shave before this year's Halloween.  My face is feeling healthy, nourished, and a bit [...]
