Review - Lather Bros / Flora Colossus & AfterShave Balm

Company: Lather Bros
Product: Flora Colossus & AfterShave Balm
Founder: Andres Mateus
Location: Miami Lakes Fl.

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.

Review- RazoRock XXX

Company: RazoRock
Product: XXX
Founder: Joseph Abbatangelo

Story Updated on 7/29/2017

Wet Shavers have been talking about this soap for years. The history is legendary. Some people like the original others like the new tallow based creation. Since I’ve never had the opportunity to use the first version I can only give you my impressions of the one that’s available now. 

RazoRock has a standard black plastic tub with a screw on lid for the majority of its soaps. The tubs also have a smaller second lid made of clear plastic, which sits, inside the first protecting the soap and allowing it to be sealed. All of Razorock soaps have an opening which is more than ample to lather from. A nice feature of this design is these tubs are stackable but without side labels, this feature is lost. The redesigned label and logo is truly eye catching. The tub pictured is from 2014.

Review - Crowne & Crane / Musique Nuit (Night Music)

Company: Crowne & Crane
Product: Musique Nuit (Night Music)
Location: Woodstock, GA

When the parcel arrived, it was filled to the brim with samples I took my time to examine each one and never reference the company's website or articles that might have reviewed it before me. We had a lot to choose from but I narrowed it down to two shaving soaps Tobacco Leaf and Musique Nuit. I do a lot of reviews on Tobacco shaving scents I even have few in my own line so I wanted to go with something different. Little did I realize that the shaving soap I picked for the video and article review was in fact for a woman. I have to tell you I really loved the scent and no matter what gender it was intended for the performance was great! I was thinking of redoing everything but that wouldn't be honest so I'm going with what I picked.

Review - The Art of Shaving

Company: The Art Of Shaving
Products: Balm/Shaving Cream
Location: Walt Whitman Mall

When you dive into this hobby, information comes at you from all directions eventually someone tells you about "The Art of Shaving". At the time, I didn't know any better and was willing to just get started so I took a visit to my local mall called Walt Whitman. This is considered a high-end mall you'll find no food courts here no Burger Kings or McDonald's. I located the directory and to my surprise, a brand new The Art of Shaving Store had just opened.

Review - QShave or Ming Shi Shaver 2000S

Company: QShave
Product: QShave or Ming Shi Shaver 2000S

You can't help but notice how great this razor looks. Once you see it your curiosity will get the best of you. The modern styling of the razor will draw you in. At first glance, this looks like just like the Chrome Futura Safety Razor from the German company Merkur. That one sells for $105.00 but this is the knockoff which is called the QShave I've also seen this advertised as the Ming Shi Shaver 2000S. Now the question is how good is it.

I saw the Ming Shi Shaver 2000S for about $12.95 on the Maggard's website and with shipping, it came close to $18.00 so I clicked buy right away.  Happy with my purchase I found myself talking about it to a friend on my Wet the Face community. He asked me how much did I spend on it when I told him he replied I got mine for $5.00. I said you're kidding no way and then he sent me the link and he was right I felt like such a fool. So, I called Maggard's and explained to him what my friend just told me. He replied with this logic "You'll have yours in two days while the one from China will take two weeks to arrive". So, I purchased a second one from China as well. I wanted to see if they would be the same and how long it would actually take from China to get to me which I found out to be a little over a week.
