Erasmic Shaving Cream

Company: Amber House Ltd
Product: Erasmic
Location: United Kingdom
Website – Google for best price

Again, from the UK care package we have selected another shave cream called Erasmic for this week’s shave. This is a product of Amber House Ltd.  The product states that it has the same great formula since 1886 but maybe they should tweak it a just a bit.  A little more on that later.

The packaging is very attractive with a bold red box with white text except for the product name which is in black and some other accents. The tube holds about 7.5ml with a screw on cap but I would rather if it had a flip top.

Phoenix & Beau / Denali

Company: Phoenix & Beau
Product: Denali
Founders: Kerry & Sarah Burrows
Location:  Hitchin, Hertfordshire, England

Another look into our care package from the UK brings out a menthol delight called Denali a seasonal shaving soap from Phoenix & Beau based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, a family business founded by Kerry & Sarah Burrows in 2015. Kerry spent nine months building and testing a formula that led to the creation of a vegan and, some time after, a tallow based soap. After extensive testing with the group “The Shaving Room” Phoenix & Beau was launched in February 2016 from Kerry’s home-based studio. Here they continue to work together to bring the wet shaving community amazing products.

Review - Black Ship Grooming / Ghost Ship

Company: Black Ship Grooming
Product: Ghost Ship
Founder: Kelly Hogan
Location: Beaver PA

When Ghost Ship was first introduced I really didn’t think much about grapefruit being something I would like and then the reports started coming in by the droves all positive of just how great this shaving soap really was and being a wet shaver I just couldn’t resist so I jumped on board. Ghost Ship is the creation Kelly Hogan the owner of the now rebranded Beaver Wood right. Today they go by the company name of Black Ship Grooming. No matter what name your tub happens to have on it you can’t deny how amazing their shaving soaps and after shaves are. It’s surprising to know that this company started out making pens and rolling pins. The name Beaver Woodright was derived from Kelly residing in Beaver PA and his wood working prowess of which people who do that sort of thing are called wood rights hence the name Beaver Woodright. The name change happened in 2015 when the company focus turned to pirate themed shaving soaps and accessories. Many people had commented at shows that name just didn’t fit anymore so, after talking it over with his wife Black Ship Grooming was born.

Review - Cool Cologne Shave Cream

Company: Boots
Product: Cool Cologne
Location: Nottingham, England
Website: Cool Cologne

You can say I have someone with the inside scoop when it comes to Wet Shaving in the UK. Yesterday a new “Care Package” arrived loaded to the brim with shaving creams and soaps. I found items that I’ve never heard of or seen before things that without living there would have been imposable to know about let alone buy. A note inside from Leslie Asare explaining he thought I might like to try some of these products from the UK and So far, all my videos and blog articles from this point on reviewing products from the UK have been donated by Leslie Asare so a big THANK YOU goes out to him.

Company: Lather Bros
Product: Flora Colossus & AfterShave Balm

A few of my YouTube followers asked if could arrange to review the new Lather Bros Flora Colossus. That was back in July and now that it’s August I finally have the time to test and produced the promised review. Just a note as of this writing the website says SOLD OUT! Also, on my last review of this company’s website I pointed out some minor issues but they have all been resolved.

Review - Regiment / Bravura Shaving Soap

Company: Regiment
Product: Bravura (Bravery)
Location: Riverside, California

Today I’m looking at the Regiment company’s line of shaving soaps. A veteran owned company with a love of God, Country and the pride of the military service as part of its mission statement. The regiment is a full-service online store. You’ll also find shaving brushes, Safety Razors & Blades, Brush Stands, and other Apparel.

Regiment shaving soap comes in a tin with a screw on lid. The ingredients list runs around the outer rim of the label. Also, visible is the website URL and underneath in bold letters the company name. The scent name is above all this near the top. Tins are becoming rarer these days since plastic tubs are resistant to dings and dents and can be such a pain to deal with. I’m not sure exactly why but I can’t see this product in any other vessel other than a tin. It’s just the way I see it. Place this in a plastic tub and it loses its authenticity somehow.

Review - Edwin & Jagger Cooling Menthol

Company: Edwin & Jagger
Product: Cooling Menthol Shaving Cream
Location: England

I have incredible friends in wet shaving. Wet The Face has been around since March of 2015 and in this time I've been sent many samples from around the world which leads me to one of them from England called Edwin and Jagger Cooling Menthol shaving cream.

The sample package is just enough for one to two shaves or at least that's how it worked out for me. If you do have any left it's sure to be safe with the snap on lid provided on the sample tub. I can't be sure but it looks to be about 1oz.
