Barlow's Shaving Cream Crafted For Men

Company: 180 Innovational LLC.
Product:  Barlow's Charcoal Shave Cream
Website: Exclusive at Rite-Aid

This week I took to the local Rite-aid for another look on the shelves and came up with 4 different products that I will be reviewing. First up is Barlow's Charcoal Shave Cream. Charcoal is becoming the new additive these days in lots of products I’ve seen it many times in shaving soap before but not shaving cream. Come to think of it I’ve never even heard of Barlows until now. So I did a little investigative work online and found something very interesting this is a Private label company owned by 180 Innovational LLC. This brand has no website and only sold through places like CVS, Target, Rite-aid you get the picture. They also own other brands ranging from Medical to HairCare products. Here is a link if you're interested - https://trademarks.justia.com/owners/180-innovations-llc-3504706/ So you can see that the experience of an artisan product is pretty much gone so don’t let its advertising fool you.

Wet the Face - Creation Of Bar Soaps

Another peek into the soap making process. This time bar soaps. A different process than making shaving soap we use the cold process method. Here I start you at the beginning of melting the oils and butter to the end when we pop them out of my 3d printed molds and placing them on the racks to dry.

Beau Brummell - White Marble Shaving Bowl




Company: Beau Brummell
Product: White Marble Shaving Bowl
Founders: Zack & Daniel Evar
Location: South Hackensack, NJ
Website: https://beaubrummellformen.com/


Beau Brummell is a company out of South Hackensack, NJ started by two brothers in 2013. They create grooming and skin care products crafted in small batches at their laboratory in New York. To say they have been in the press would be an understatement just pick a magazine most likely they were in it.

I always try to get things rolling with my reviews by sending out emails to companies at the beginning of the year to see if anyone would be interested in me reviewing any products. I happen to send one to Zack one of the founders of Beau Brummell I told him who I was and what I did on youtube along with telling him about our Wet The face community. He wrote back that he was interested and would send me something soon. some time went by and on the 28th of January, he wrote that he sent me a package and gave me the tracking number it arrived only a few days later.
