Well it is still January here - but I'm on top of this - it is February there!

What has arrived in your place shaving wise?

Pics preferred but not essential!

Been looking forward to this trip to the US for a while, not least to get a set of Mike's Shave Soap with matching Aftershave. Can you spot the problem ...



Yes, sigh, and too late to do anything about it ...

I did get a refund and the Shaver Heaven was a gift item - but both the aftershave and SH will be for sale when I get back. Might have to just keep the Mike's soap and despair what might have been...

Many thanks to a member here for helping me secure the Texaus sets.

Pity I signed up for the Arko challenge for the rest of this month. 😮
Better not break your solemn oath and stick to your Arko until the end of February, otherwise I'll come back to you and kick your hairy arse with my metal cap boots, you'll be crying for a whole month with a very sore butt tail bone.

Probably my No 1 Shaving Product discovery of 2018 - Cold River Soap Works Moisturising Aftershave.
Alcohol free; it is a thin emulsion with a truck-load of the better skin care ingredients. It has a delightful light fresh barbershop fragrance.
It is supplied in a spray bottle which atomises beautifully - 4-5 light pumps and your entire face and neck is lightly covered.
Stocking up :whistle:.

Sister picked this up at a local market for me. Seems to be a tiny little two person operation in the Melbourne suburbs.


I'll let you know how it went after a shave.
Good luck with that!

We had a local soap maker's "shaving soap" gift bag as a door prize at a CBR meet up - I'm not sure that @lerenau has come back to another since 'winning' it ...
