A few months back I was sent this box full of Barbus products from my friend Lubomir Grujoski and now I’m going back and grabbing a few more items. This time we have the Active line of Shaving Soap / AfterShave Gel and Cologne. My last review of the classic shaving soap was a hit now let's see if this continues with the Active line of products.

Moon Soaps - Union Xtra Slick Tallow


Company: Moon Soaps 
Product: Union Shaving Soap
Founders: Melody & Zachary Kent
Location: Aptos, CA
Website: https://moonsoaps.com

One of the best things about doing product reviews is when you get something that turns out to be above the rest, to have used something which checks all the boxes. Nowadays It’s getting harder and harder to find the wow factor since we have so many artisans in the field but the good ones always seem to rise to the top. I remember finding out about this new artisan back in 2017 and now you can see Moon Soaps being shown in many shaves of the day postings in all the forums. In the 3 years, they have been actively producing shaving soap we have seen only 3 releases which really is a testimony to getting things right and now we have a fourth.

Charcoal Goods / Artisan DE Razors




Company: Charcoal Goods
Product: Artisan DE Razor
Founder: Brian Twilley
Website: https://charcoalgoods.com/


Something amazing happened last week. I received an email letting me know that if I wanted I would be able to review a new razor from a company called Charcoal Goods and the crazy thing is Benjamin who is one of our community members received this for himself and has never used it yet. I was excited to do the review and when the package arrived another surprise was inside. He not only included a fantastic shaving soap from through the fire but also in the box was a brand new badger brush from Wolf Whiskers. The note read please give this brush away to your Patreon members which Benjamin had become one a few days after the email. Let me say this brush is stunning and I’m sure on of our patreon members will be very happy.

Bumble & Co. - Bee a Man Shaving Soap


Company: Bumble & Co.
Product: Bee a Man Shaving Soap
Founder: Julie Diers
Location: Walpole, NH,
WebSite: https://www.bumbleandcompany.com


I love reaching out to other artisans asking if they would like to have a review on shaving products they create. Some are just not sure and say no others dive right in without hesitation and then there are the ones that are so darn busy they want to but forget all about it and that’s what happened when I reached out to Julie Diers she runs Bumble & Co. I emailed her on January 2, of 2019 just asking if she was interested and if so to send me samples she replied on Jan 15 and was very apologetic about her delay in getting back to me. She said she was going to send something out so I waited.

Dapper Dan Barbershop Classic Shave Cream

Company: Dapper Dan
Product: Dapper Dan Barbershop Classic Shave Cream
Website: https://dapperdanuk.com/


I’ve been using pomades for a while now and I have a few that I use all the time. Pomades can be an obsession just like shaving soaps and creams can. So when I noticed one of my pomades called Dapper Dan came out with a shaving cream I just couldn’t resist the purchase.

Dapper Dan Barbershop Classic Shave Cream has been developed by professionals to offer superior performance when used in barbershops or at home. Rich in texture with a classic scent this premium shave cream can be used with or without a shaving brush, though I recommend you use a brush for the richest lather to be achieved.

Aveeno Positively Smooth Moisturizing Shave Gel


Company: Aveeno
Product: Aveeno Positively Smooth Moisturizing Shave Gel
Website: Do A Google Search for lowest Price


Today we’re back to our Rite Aide store and found another $4.00 shaving Gel called Aveeno. This will blow you away with its performance. The can states that it has a new look but this is lost on me since I never knew what it looked like before but it's still attractive. My only problem with it is the can is way too tall to be stored on a normal shelf. Instead of making it the size of a normal shaving can they slimed it down which forced it to be taller not a great marketing move if you ask me.

I like the fact that it uses pressure and is not dispensed by a pump. The gel comes out as a clear to cream color which on contact to the skin starts to foam. For now, on this is going to be a sign that a gel is right for me if at least turned to foam it has a 50 present change of working its way into my routine, the other 50 is performance and this one has plenty of that.

Bathhouse Soapery & Caldarium / Milk - Shaving Cream


Company: Bathhouse Soapery & Caldarium
Product: Milk - Shaving Cream
Website: https://bathhousesoap.com/

We have some great members in our community and when they find something new they like to spread the word to everyone. This happened two weeks ago when a package arrived from a community member Benjamin asking me to take a closer look and possibly do a review of Milk a shaving cream form Bathhouse Soapery & Caldarium. I’m always flattered that people think of me when it comes to something they want to be reviewed I always tell them I may not like the product so please be aware it may not go the way that had planed but Bathhouse soapers have nothing to worry about.
