Barrister and Mann - Reserve Cool

Company: Barrister and Mann
Product: Reserve Cool
Location: Cooperstown N.Y.

One of my first purchases of samples soaps was Barrister and Mann from the way of Maggards Shaving Supplies. Everyone was abuzz over them and I wanted to join in on the frenzy. This was a few years ago and I was able to order all of them at once to see what I liked. When they arrived I was taken back by some of the scents and I experienced first hand what the fuss was about then I picked up ROAM. This was really not my cup of tea. I guess they all can’t appeal to everyone. On that day 7 out of the 5, I order I really liked. So when I received the Reserve Cool for me to try I was very happy to report how fantastic this one truly is.

Laniess & Le Pere Lucien Shaving Soap - Honey

Company: Laniess & Le Pere Lucien Shaving Soap 
Product: Lainess Barber Soap Honey

Having a YouTube channel can be draining at times but once in a while when you least expect it someone sends you a package with some wonderful products like last week. I received two items from Pierre Palmolive Shaving Cream and also a sample of a French artisan’s shaving soap called Lainess made with fresh donkey milk. What comes to mind was the La Savonniere Du Moulin review and how that hard puck caused such a ruckus in the wet shaving community mostly it was the packaging that was puzzling people. We don’t have that silliness here with Lainess but what we do have is a solid performing shaving soap with an amazing scent and post shave feel.
