Mongoose Razor • Mr. Warlock • School Of Chocolate

Today we use Mr. Warlock the mongoose Razor and we talk about a series called The School of Chocolate.

Mr. Warlock has been around for some time and is available year-round. I think it's the eucalyptus that makes this shaving soap so special. I’ve never experienced it in any other shaving soap like this one. Unfortunately, we are currently all out of Mr. Warlock and have been thinking about giving him a rest for a while but that’s still up in the air for 2022.

Shaving & Talking 9 Featuring Vanilla Tobacco Tallow Version

I’d like to bring to your attention a new segment on my YouTube channel called Shaving & Talking. So far I've done nine including the one I’m releasing this week. The conversations range from movies and TV shows most of the time but on occasion, it's about things that happen to me personally. I always try to have a conversation with you catching up on things that have happened in my life and if anyone responds with a question I always try to answer them as soon as I can.

Today is another shaving and talking and this time we discuss the comedian Bill Burr. I’ve seen his act and I have to tell you for me he’s entertaining. Forever stepping ever so slightly over the line and then coming right back which makes me hang on to hear what he has to say next.

Sweet Comb Chicago - Rogers Park

It's been a min since the last time I shaved with Sweet Comb Chicago and today we have something new called Rogers Park. Now one of the ingredients in this soap is beeswax which must be the reason this shaving soap has such great lather I’ve never seen such a lather before with any other artisan’s soap.

The packaging is very attractive a black tin with a push-on lid a beautifully done logo of a bee right on top with circular large letters announcing the company and the product name.

The scent Is amazing the website describes it as scented with horchata’s notes of rice pudding, vanilla, and cinnamon, and man that is so accurate. This scent will not let you down it presents when you open the tin right until you are done with the shave and then some.

Murphy & McNeil Claddagh

Today's shave will be the second time I’m using Murphy & McNeil shaving soap. 5 years ago in 2016, I did a review of Bull and Bell Amber Sandalwood and what I think was one of my best intros to one of my videos. Here’s the link if you want to check it out
We now have new offerings from them which include not only tallow but the addition of duck fat as well.

The samples I received came from Ben Moran he supplied Wet the Face with 4 samples for review. I’m starting this first review with Claddagh.
