Review - Saponificio Varesino Manna Di Sicilia Beta 4.0

Company: Saponificio Varesino
Product: Manna di Sicilia Beta 4.0
Location: Italy
Website - Just Google the company name you'll find a a number of offerings.  

My first encounter with Saponificio Varesino was in the form of visiting their website. Luckily for me all I had to do was click the US flag for English and I was ready to explore. Nothing could have prepared me for the actual experience of using the product for the first time. Not only did I order the puck but the wooden bowl as well. (I’m not sure they still sell the wooden bowl) When they arrived the first thing I did was open the box to the puck. It was beautifully warped and the scent was breathtaking. I thought my god this hobby is getting better all the time and I was right in thinking that.

Review - Arko Shaving Cream - Extra Fresh Ice Mint

Company: Arko
Product: Shaving Cream Extra Fresh Ice Mint
Location: Turkey
Website -Arko

Whenever I find something that I feel I need to share with my fellow wet shavers I write and make a video about it. This week I’ll bring to your attention something you might not have tried yet or maybe you seen it on a (SOTD) or shave of the day posting in one of the forums.  This one is from the Turkish company called Arko. The product is called Extra Fresh Ice Mint Shaving Cream. Now I’ve used Arko products before but really didn’t like the scent of the popular little red shaving soap stick. This new line of shaving creams came out a few years ago and I’m really impressed with it. Not only of the modern look but a great new take on shaving cream scents as well.

Review - Soap Commander / Vision

Company: Soap Commander
Product: Vision
Location: Ardmore, Alabama
Founder: Darren and Carrie

 Way back in March of 2015 I wrote my first article for Wet the Face Blog entitled Soap Commander “Do you have integrity”. Since then Darren and Carrie have moved to a new location in Ardmore, Alabama and have grown stronger than ever in the wet shaving community. Everyone absolutely loves the products and has nothing but wonderful things to say about them and the company.

Review - Stirling Soap Co. / Ozark Mountain

Company: Stirling Soap Co.
Product: Ozark Mountain
Founder: Roderick and Amanda Lovan.

My first encounter with Stirling Soap Co. came in the form of a bar soap sample called Pig Trial. I fell in love with the scent right on the spot. Since then I’ve purchased a few more soaps but none that came close to that one scent. Then I found Ozark Mountain. Oh man this is it!! I fell in love all over again. I can say with some certainty that both the Ozark Mountain and Pig Trail must be the same scent or very close to each other. The only difference being that Ozark Mountain is for shaving.

Review - Soap ERA / Patchouli Classic Shave & Shampoo Bar

Company: Soap E.R.A.Product
Patchouli Classic Shave & Shampoo Bar
Founder: Maxi Crow
Location: Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Website - Soap ERA

I love sharing something new that I’ve found with our shaving community and today I have the pleasure of introducing a shaving soap called Soap ERA. They hail out of Australia and run by founder Maxi Crow. Maxi believes that soap can be fun by using only natural ingredients.  In our soaps you will find only the finest essential oils, clays, herbs, spices, and botanicals to impart scent, colour, and texture. They use all natural ingredients with finest oils and butters blended in a traditional old-fashioned cold process method in small quality controlled batches. Each is hand cut and allowed to cure for 4-6 weeks.

Review - Col. Ichabod Conk & Luxury Barber Box 2015

Company: Col. Ichabod Conk
Product: Rio Grande Lavender Shave Cream

This will be my last words on Luxury Barber Box for now. I’ve come to the end of what I had on the shelf. Yesterday they just released a reconfigured set of boxes instead of just having one they now have 4 which are Classic, Shave, Skin and Hair. The classic and shave boxes are close to what wet shavers would like.  The classic is $32.00 a month compared to the shave box which is only $20.00. I’m waiting for the day when I can start this up again. I’m hoping soon.
