Faena Shaving Soap & Aftershave Balm

Company: Faena
Product: Shaving Soap / Aftershave balm

One of the amazing things about the wet shaving hobby is the variety of artisan products one has to choose from. That being said I’m always finding something new and this week an artisan company reached out for me to review a few of the handmade products from Greece.

In the box, we have three products tallow-based shaving soap an aftershave balm, and bar soap reviewing only the two that pertain to wet shaving. By the way, this took a long time to get to the US almost a month.

Leaf Shave - The Twig Single Edge Razor

The single edge razor is getting lots of attention lately with several new releases over the years we have many to choose from but one that I’ve used recently could be jumping ahead of the pack this one is from the company Leaf and it’s called the Twig.

This remarkable razor came to me via an announcement from Leaf as a Kickstarter. They made sure the backers knew what was going on every step of the way right up to the shipping. When it finally came I had to wait due to it being almost the end of the year not wanted to do the review at that time. Finally, after two other razor reviews, I’m ready to tackle the Twig.

Pearl Flexi Adjustable Safety Razor V2.0

A few months ago Pearl a shaving company released what they called the Flexi Adjustable Safety Razor and it made a big splash in the wet shaving community. After a week later a few people started to comment on this strange alignment problem. It was reported that when turning the razor to about 2-3 on the adjustment dial you would witness the dipping of the blade to one side.

After seeing many youtube videos on this subject and talking to several wet shavers and having images of this problem sent to me I have to say this is a real issue. The Pearl company was on this in a big way they told the customers that anyone that was not happy with this razor release they will be sending them a new razor as soon as the second batch with corrections was completed and this February that batch had been completed and I was lucky enough to be part of it as a reviewer of the product. I am calling this one the Pearl Flexi Adjustable Safety Razor 2.0 and this is what the review will be based on.

Nothing But The Base - Wet The Face Release

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Nothing But The Base

I've been approached countless times with the question of when will Wet The Face come out with a shaving soap that has no fragrance. Something that would not irritate the skin or cause a reaction due to the natural fragrance oils. The wait is now over with our release of Nothing But The Base you’ll have absolutely no fragrance with all the benefits of our natural base formula.
