Dr. Jon's - Flowers In The Dark


Company: Dr. Jon
Product: Flowers In The Dark


Last week Jon from Dr. Jon’s asked me to review one of his new soaps called Flowers In The Dark. This new soap is Vol 3 which is the 3rd revision of his formula to date and lets me tell you I found nothing really wrong with the first one and now this is beyond my expectations as a wet shaver.

Normally I would go right into how the scent is but not just yet because I want to point out the end of the shave first. What an amazing post shave feel this shaving soap has truly one that stands out in my mind as some of the best I’ve had.

Cold Fusion from Wet The Face

Company: Wet The Face
Product Cold Fusion

Attention all menthol heads it’s finally here Cold Fusion my latest release from Wet the Face.

Cold Fusion has the maximum amount of menthol for the coldest shave you'll ever experience and we feel we have reached that goal in bringing this to you. In addition, this formula has pure peppermint oil which is the source of menthol crystals. Next, we added camphor not only to boost this to a new level but it's known to help with irritation and finally, we added on an additional top layer of menthol crystals to push this to critical mass.

In our testing, we have found Cold Fusion to be stronger than Snake Bite, Kronos, Frostbyte and Denali but equal to or if using the aftershave surpassing Cryogenics. We want you to have a great experience with your shave. If you use both the shaving soap and aftershave this will take you well over the limit of Cryogenics but skipping the aftershave allows you a way to control the strength. You can also shake off any additional top layer crystals into the lid of the tub and place them back before your next shave but over time these will dissolve into the soap.

Please test Cold Fusion before committing to a complete shave. We strongly suggest doing the same with the accompanying aftershave as well. Just use a little on your cheek to see if you have a reaction.

Enjoy Menthol Heads!

Barbus Classic Shaving Soap

Company: Barbus WareHouse
Product: Barbus Classic Shaving Soap

When you think of shaving soap does Slovakia come to mind? Well, it should after reading this article you’ll understand what I’m talking about. I was introduced to the amazing shaving soap by a friend Lubomir Grujoski who is part of my Facebook group Wet The Face. We had a very hard time communicating because this N.J. resident came from Slovakia and we had a language barrier that was hard to bridge. We would go back and forth trying to make sense out of what each other was trying to say until I found Google translator. This made our communications possible and since then we pretty much have meaningful conversations and can get our ideas across to one another but every now and then I still scratch my head. Now that I understand him and what his company is all about I then explained I give a review that is honest and sometimes not in favor of the product and if he understood this could happen but he was not worried he agreed and sent me products to review.

Campbell's Shaving Cream



Company: Campbell’s
Product: Shaving Cream 

Looking at the typical Barber's station you can get a sense of just how many things a barber must have at his or her fingertips to do the job correctly. Razors of all kinds, Sisters, combs mirrors, the list goes on and on but the one things people miss is that little machine that makes the lather. It’s the only one I’ve ever seen them use and I’ve been going to the barber for over 50 years. 

The one I’m talking about is simply called the lather machine but it uses a liquid shaving soap from the company called Campbell’s and no its, not the soup company. So how does one make a lather like the one that the machine produces at home? First, we have to order the liquid shaving cream and that can be done online using Amazon. For $9.00 you can get yourself an 8oz bottle. Then all you need to do is lather it up yourself using a shaving bowl or scuttle.

Wet The Face / Grey's Vetiver

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Grey’s Vetiver

Today I would like to introduce a new product in our Wet The Face lineup called Grey’s Vetiver. This shaving soap comes in two forms our regular shaving formula and our new tallow pucks. The scent is based on Tom Fords Grey Vetiver and is one of my favorite fragrances from his collection.

I always wanted to bring this incredible scent to shaving soap and now after much testing, it's here! This is a fragrance that must be experienced guaranteed to turn some heads your way. I would love this to become another favorite for fathers day.

Wet The Face Tallow Pucks

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Tallow Pucks

There seem to be one thing most wet shavers agree upon and that’s tallow. This is the end all be all ingredient that makes the difference in having a great shave. Tallow seems to enhance the shaving experience in many ways but mostly it provides slickness and glide that is unsurpassed just ask any straight razor shaver.

Artemis For Men Shaving Cream

Company: Artemis Of Switzerland 
Product: Artemis For Men Shaving Cream 
Location: Switzerland
Website: Do a Google Search for the best price

A few weeks back I received an email from Ryan asking me for my address he wanted to send me something to review. This was not an artisan company but a subscriber who wanted my opinion on a certain product he uses from Switzerland called Artemis For Men. He explained this product is really hard to find and I believe him It took me a while to find anything about it on the internet.

 I find the packaging to be very appealing. A silver tube with a red flip-up top which most modern shaving creams have these days but this was very smart pulling color from Switzerland's red flag to make a bold statement and it works against the silver body it's just stunning.
