Enoch Single Edge Razor - Occam's Razor

Company: Occam’s Razor Product: Enoch Single Edge Razor Kickstarter backers are patient people I once waited two years for a razor to arrive and when it did it needed to be replaced. That being said anyone who knows my YouTube channel knows how much I love the Occam’s Razor Nano and when they announced the new Enoch Single Edge Razor I just jumped to attention and put my order in and have been waiting ever since. Well, finally, it has arrived. In the box came loads of extra goodies an alum block, Shaving soap (unscented) pre-shave oil and a bottle fragrance oil for the soap. Not sure why the just did give you the scented soap because they only supplied one scent for it. After thinking about this I guess they just wanted to promote sales of the available scents they offer.

OneBlade - Core Razor

Company: OneBlade
Product: OneBlade Core

When the One Blade Razor first hit the market I was very excited to see something new in the wet shaving space. On further inspection uncovered a beautifully designed razor but with a price tag of $400.00 After pulling myself up off the floor from laughing I wanted to know just what made this razor worth $400.00 was it the pivoting head, R&D, materials? I’m still not sure what it is but when I recently saw the One Blade Core a cheaper version of the Genesis selling for $20.00 originally $50.00. I said to myself this seems more in line with the majority of wet shavers are willing to spend on a razor. The recent lowering of the core price would suggest this as well and doing a review on the core would benefit most wet shavers.

When the Razor arrived you can see that a lot of time and money was spent on packaging most likely that cost more the razor to produce. The presentation was done so well that it made you feel like you had purchased the $400.00 version and I’m sure this is intentional. This was the first razor I ever purchased that came with its own stand and it looks really good when it’s in use too.

LiDL Food Market First Impressions

I was picking up my prescriptions a few months back when I noticed something strange happening, why is the Best Market closing? Then after a few weeks, it was the topic of conversation. It seems like it was only yesterday when they cut the ribbon to the Best Market it’s been open for 5 or so years and now it's gone. Well as it turns out the german based Lidl purchased 27 Best Markets including all 24 on Long Island.

The transformation started soon after the doors closed and didn't stop for months. Slowly we could see progress and then something came in the mail. We received a postcard of sorts explaining what was coming a (new food market) who they were (Lidl) and when to expect the opening December 18, 2019. The grand opening would be an event with gift cards for the first 200 customers, reusable bags, sweepstakes, Free photos with Santa and live music featuring Billy Joel’s greatest hits seems like they did some homework about Long Island.

Your Best Face Unboxing / Shave

Company: Your Best Face
Product: Shaving Cream Skin Care

Sometimes things just get by me but I have no excuse this time. It's all on me and my fault. You see Darrel from Your Best Face sent me an amazing box full of his products with a note explaining to just use them to review them whatever I want and if possible let people know about them. This was a while ago and I just kept putting off the review and now I feel like such a shit. I hope Darrel can forgive me I feel so bad not getting to this sooner because this stuff is amazing!

Trader Joe's Mango Cream Shave

Company: Trader Joe’s
Product: Honey Mango Cream Shave 

Last week during the Thanksgiving frenzy I found myself at Trader Joes’s. If you don’t have one near you then I’ll explain. Trader Joe's is a neighborhood grocery store with amazing food and drink from around the globe and they also bring in the local fair as well. Great quality at great prices (sometimes) you just have to be careful because you can lose the main reason why you are there and start buying so much more than you need. 

While looking for something during my visit I came across a very small section for soaps for men and women and right in front of me was the Trader Joe’s Honey Mango Moisturizing Cream Shave for $6.00. Wow, I thought but wait why is it called cream shave and not shave cream? This is the way they explain it. “This Cream was specifically formulated for us without the use of harsh ingredients and is tested for gentleness. We designed it for sensitive skin—it’s cream-based, non-foaming, free of parabens, and enriched with aloe vera & vitamin E. Many high-end brands advertise their moisturizing shave creams as being gentle and non-irritating. And then they charge you handsomely for the favor. That’s not very gentle. We’ll happily provide the gentle, non-irritating shave cream, along with a gentle price. Trader Joe’s Honey Mango Moisturizing Cream Shave is an excellent everyday skincare product for both men and women, with a refreshing honey mango scent.
