Feeling Giddy.

Discussion started by the_shaving_sailor, Mar 21, 2017.

  1. Every now and again we all find a new product (well new to us at least) that we use for the first time that just blows us out of the water. A product that honestly peforms better then expected or leaves u feeling genuinly excited and wanting to wake up as early as possible so you can hurry up & shave again with it ASAP.

    i know everyones probably tried it, even started with it or even not liked it but i used proraso green soap the first time sunday and it took my shave to another level. if i could shave twice a day i would and id use this. loving it and its never leaving my weekly rotation.

    what products have done this for you lately?

    For me, it's usually a new straight razor or brush that has me wanting to shave again. As the # of shaves goes up in my wet shaving careerer the excitement of new products is reduced unfortunately. It has been a while since I truly got excited enough to want to shave twice in the one day.

    @Tony Forsyth 's 95 Timeless Razor - astoundingly smooth and comfortable close shave, when I was expecting something much more aggressive
    P&B Soaps - really thick syrupy lather during the loading process, and the scent of the sanskrit is addictive. Performance is top notch
  5. sanskrit is a real winner aggreed

    As I understand it Proraso Green also helps with that fizzing feeling when applied locally and will prevent giddiness if dried and sniffed. Your Welcome.

    as boring as it sounds finding gsb blades did it for me. they made shaving a much smoother and pleasant experience meaning i could shave twice a day if i so wished. having tried a few more new blades since finding them none have come close yet. got 100 nacet blades arriving in the mail tomorrow though so you never know.

    My Cherry Wood Handle Semogue SOC Boar Brush really exceeded my expectations and I love using it every day!
    The search for the right brush ended when I got this one.

    @Benjamin I think it time for you to get a Semogue SOC boar brush in Ash Wood and you should at least give the Cherry Wood some rest, and you will like the Semogue 2000 25/58mm please trust me ;)(y)

    Last item to genuinely blow me away was @Anthony and his Vanilla Oak soap or was that @shavetheman and his After Balm ?
    Both equally great!
    Strong suspicions that @todras and his products will be next on the list, unless beaten to the gates by a new brush from @Tony Forsyth !

  11. as soon as i finished my 5 sample pack of Feather stainless blades i went and bought the 200 pack from mens biz

  12. @todras APR do have some excellent excellent gear im loving my splash at this very moment im just using it sparingly because i dont want to run out.
    and that after balm from @shavetheman is just a no brainer best balm out there if im completely honest with you kids.

    Thanks for the advice Speedy. One enough for the time being though. Maybe a 2000 one day...
