Zu Zu’s Petals - Wet the Face

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Zu Zu’s Petals
Founder: Donald Youngner
Location: Huntington

Our last release for the holidays was again inspired by the movie It’s a Wonderful Life. This 1946 sleeper became the standard for Christmas viewing some time ago. The scene which inspired this shaving soap captures the touching moment when George's youngest daughter Zu Zu's received a flower from her teacher which is falling apart she asks her dad to paste it and George pretends to place the pedals back on the flower but secretly places them in his pocket.

The packaging for this last soap sports a clear plastic tub which allows you to see the rose color and instantly know what you're going to experience. Since it’s release last week I’ve been getting very positive feedback about the soaps and most people really like the clear tubs which I’m so glad I decided to finally do.

It's A Wonderful Shave! - Wet The Face

Company: Wet The Face
Product: It’s a Wonderful Shave!
Founder: Donald Youngner
Location: Huntington

We are continuing with our holiday releases next up is It’s a Wonderful Shave! Inspired by the 1946 movie It’s a Wonderful Life with Jimmy Steward playing George Bailey. This movie became my favorite but it took me until I was in my mid-20s to see it for the first time. 

For all three releases, I wanted to have packaging that would reflect the holidays so I opted for clear plastic tubs with a white screw on lids. The graphics for this one is a scene which only lasts about one sec or so he is standing in front of the welcome sign to Bedford Falls throwing up his arms and yelling Merry Christmas because he had just found out that he is alive and he really does have a wonderful life.

Mr. Warlock - Wet The Face

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Mr. Warlock
Founder: Donald Youngner
Location: Huntington

This seasons I’m trying something a little different. I started thinking about my holiday offering for Wet the Face in August and had three great product concepts. I knew I couldn’t wait any longer on this since I’m a one-man band. I have to design the labels for Shaving Soap, After Shave, Bar soap and now After Shave Balms. Then send them off to the printers and hope they arrive on time. In the meantime, create the products and then package them. The task can be daunting at times and I was really struggling over what to choose then I decided why not just do them all and so I did.

Neutrogena - Men Sensitive Skin Shave Cream

Company: Neutrogena
Product: Men Sensitive Skin Shave Cream

After the QShave disaster last week I’m ready to get my face back to a healthy state and to do this I’m using two things. First a great razor second Neutrogena Men Sensitive Skin Shaving Cream. I picked this up a few weeks ago and had it waiting until the time was right and today is that day. Due to the horrible shave last week I have some skin issues which need TLC really quick. So I’m putting this shaving cream to the test to see just what kind of support it can give me.

Bart's Balms / QShave Razor

Company: Bart’s Balms
Product: Bart’s Balms
Founder: Neil Bartholomew
Location: Scotland

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.

Last week a box arrived from our current giveaway sponsor Pereira Shavery and inside was an amazing shaving bowl that of the likes I’ve never seen before. Many of you who follow me on social media know I love to use a shaving bowl so when this one came to me to review from our current sponsor I just held my breath and said well I hope this is a good one.
