Bart's Balms / QShave Razor

Company: Bart’s Balms
Product: Bart’s Balms
Founder: Neil Bartholomew
Location: Scotland
Website: https://bartsbalm.co.uk

This week I had the pleasure of using something that came in quite handy. I was trying a new razor and when I do this the results tend to vary from amazing to disaster. I never know what to expect. It’s very rare that a razor as cheap as the one I was about to review wouldn’t have some issue. This was a QShave razor which cost about $7.00 and the shave felt like one as well.

I had this razor waiting in the wings for some time reluctant to try not only because of the damage a razor like this can produce on ones face but as the year is coming to an end so are my options for reviews. So I reluctantly reach for this and then remembered I could be saved by another product if I did the review on both so I also included Bart’s Balms and thank god I did.

The Stuff Shaving Set

Company: The Stuff
Product: The Stuff

When someone sends me something to review I take it very seriously. This means that I didn’t pay for the items so it could be construed as a bribe for a good review. To get around this kind of thing some reviewers will only write about items that they purchased but let’s be real here for a moment. That's just a way to make them feel better about giving a biased review and have the article seem more legit. It's funny when you think about people who write about high priced cars do you think they pay for them beforehand? Even restaurant reviewers don’t pay for expensive meals. No, reviews can be altered it makes no difference if you pay for the items or not. So, you have to trust the writer and I think so far I have a pretty good track record for being honest.

Rockwell Razors - Model T Adjustable (Updated)

Company: Rockwell Razors
Product: Model T Adjustable (Updated)

What a surprise it was for me this week. I had no idea this was going to happen but I was holding a parcel that came to me from Rockwell Razors. I had no clue what it could be and when I opened it I was shocked to find another Model T Razor. Why did they send me another one? and then I saw an email they sent out and it became clear.

Dear Backers,
We’re happy to share with you our latest news, and the shipping timeline we mentioned earlier this month! We’ve continued shipping the Model T razors with the One-Piece T-Bar and other engineering improvements detailed in our recent updates. Nearly 1000 White Chrome Model T razors have gone out to backers including many shipments to backers outside North America. The feedback from this initial production with the engineering changes has made few things become increasingly clear. Firstly, the One-Piece T-Bar has been the final integral piece to
getting to a razor that would meet our high-quality standards.

Company: Shaver Heaven
Location: Australia
Founder: Anthony Macri
Website: Shaver Heaven

It was a shock when it was first announced it never even crossed my mind that it could happen but yet here I was reading it Shaver Heaven was closing its doors. This was October of 2016 a shock ran over the wet shaving community wet shavers started buying tubs of them just so they could store up on their favorites. I even talked to Anthony and asked did he ever intended to reopen and at that time little was known when or if it would happen but I’m happy to say after 18 months the husband & wife team are back and better than ever!
