Review Long Rifle Soap Co. / Hunting Lodge

Company: Long Rifle Soap Co.
Product: Hunting Lodge
Founder: Amanda Brooker
Location: Wisconsin
WebSite - Hunting Lodge

I remember getting my first pucks back in 2015 and since then Long Rifle has grown into an amazing company. They offer much more than they did 2 years ago and have reformulated their shaving soaps and added shaving creams to the mix. I have to disclose the fact that we are currently running a giveaway but I felt it was time to give a brief update to this artisan.

Review - Wheat State Soap / Sweet Tobacco

Barbershop plastic tub shown
Company: Wheat State Soaps
Product: Sweet Tobacco
Founder: Keith Barger
Location: Derby, Kansas
Website - WheatStateSoap

I try my best to help other artisans who reach out to me and ask for my opinion. Whether it’s an after shave or a shaving soap I always try and give them good feedback. Sometimes life just gets in the way as it did with Keith from Wheat State Soap. I just didn’t have to time to send him my feedback but now things have settled down and more than ready to contribute. I’m also allowed to do a video which was not allowed before so don’t forget to check that out as well.

Review - Yesto Natural Man Shaving Cream

Company: Yesto
Product: Natural Man - Shaving Cream

            When I find myself wanting something new to try in wet shaving the first place I look at my local CVS, Target and Walmart stores. I don’t always come across something new but this time I found what I feel is a gem. It’s a shaving cream for men called Natural Man shaving Cream. The Yesto brand offerings are vast including face, body, hair, lips and baby but now this new line called Natural Man includes Shower to go cleaning cloths. A daily face scrub plus face lotion, charcoal bar soap and for the wet shaver a post shave cooling balm and shaving cream.

Can something be called Natural if 4% of ingredients are not? I’m not sure but it’s states this proudly with a circular stamp on the outside of the packaging. I guess just having the word natural appearing on your products is a win for the brand but regardless of that this is still an amazing shaving cream.

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.
