Grey's Vetiver Tallow Version - Wet The Face

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Grey's Vetiver Tallow Version

This week we release another tallow shaving soap in our line called Grey’s Vetiver. This is one of my personal favorites the scent is from Tom Ford and I have been told it very close to the real thing.

This soap is using our new tallow-based formula which has been getting raves from our customers, they like the soft soap version over the hard pucks of last year and find them easier to store and manage. We agree!

The Shaving Nook's Flying Mango

Today we revisit the shaving nook’s amazing soap called The Flying Mango. A very much anticipated release back around 2015. This was inspired by the shaving nooks group and created with the help of Saponificio Varesino. Since 1945, Saponificio Varesino has been crafting traditional soaps for laundry, industrial, and grooming purposes in Italy. And while they are proud of their almost 75-year history, they aren’t resting on their laurels but are continuing to perfect new crafting methods to bring the best soaps to the world.

The packaging was in an aluminum tin but not the strong kind it was a bit flimsy which for something coming from Saponificio Varesino was disappointing, to say the least.

Shaving & Talking #5 Featuring Solstice

Shaving & Talking #5
From PAA (Original Formula)

Today I find myself without something new to review but no matter we have something that I think will please everyone. It’s from PAA the soap is called Solstice. A while back Douglas contributed to our Wet the Face giveaway with this shaving soap and he also included one for me to use. So this seems like a perfect time to use it once again. If you never had the pleasure of using this one you're missing out on a fantastic scent & lather experience.

Lagom - New From Wet The Face

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Lagom
I have to admit I watch a few YouTubers that do try on hauls. Some of them buy or if very popular get sent outfits from major brands to model. This young woman her name is Estelle Berglin she sometimes goes by the name Swea who is from Sweden is one of these YouTubers. In this one particular video she was discussing the Swedish word Lagom which means not too much, not too little, just the right amount, and is a philosophy that aims to balance, and those who practice it encourage that Lagom is applied to all aspects of life. Being part Swedish myself I thought maybe there is something to this by balancing one's life and then I thought maybe I can use this philosophy in another way.
