Last Shave Of 2023 Hello 2024

As we leave 2023 behind, it was a challenging year for me. Not just for Wet The Face but personally regarding my wife Mary's health. Just this last month her tests all showed that her frontal lobe which controls speech is shrinking, where she used to talk all the time and now only says a few words to me. This is due to her advancing dementia, I know she understands what I'm saying I tell her I love her all the time and that I will be by her side always and she always smiles when I say it.

Shaving and Talking 17

Today's shaving and talking we are using spices from the sea which I think is pretty much spot-on for Old Spice. Whether you use shaving soap or just the aftershave its scent is always old spice.

Crazy lather no matter how you make a bowl lather or from the tub makes no difference. The slickness and glide are going to be with you right to the end of the shave and the post-shave feel will certainly please any wet shaver.

On the talking side of this video, I express a concern I have with Mary's care at St James Rehab Center. This is not the holiday Christmas ending I was hoping for but it just turned out that way.

Shaving With Test Pilot Mary / Axe Throwing

This week I'm using Test Pilot Mary as part of the Dirty Girls series of shaving soaps & aftershaves. This one has the scent of Dior Men's Sauvage. The scent notes Bergamot, Vanilla and Nutmeg Vetiver, Patchouli, Geranium and elemi, Ambroxan, Cedar, and Labdanum.

The Dirty Girls series pays tribute to the women who worked tirelessly to support the war effort and defend our freedom. They were just as proud to be American as the men they fought alongside, and their courage and sacrifice will never be forgotten. Wet The Face is proud to honor these brave women with a line of shaving products that embody their spirit and resilience.

Shaving With The Quiet Man (Tallow)

In the realm of shaving enthusiasts, the debate over tallow is ever-present, with some staunchly avoiding it while others swear by its virtues. At Wet The Face, we've delved into the world of tallow-based shaving soaps by transforming some of our popular formulas. After a year-long quest for the perfect tallow, we discovered a gem right here on Long Island, sourced meticulously to meet our standards.

However, the journey took an unexpected turn when it came time to replenish our tallow supply. A six-month wait for production to resume tested our patience, but the moment finally arrived, and we wasted no time crafting our coveted tallow-based shaving soaps.

It's A Wonderful Shave!

Today we use an old shaving soap I made a while back called It's A Wonderful Shave. It was a big hit for many years and then I had to place it in the vault for other holiday shaving soaps to make their debut. I found a few of them on my shelf and thought if anyone wanted one they could go to my online flea market I only have 5 so first come first served.

This shaving soap was inspired by the scene in It's A Wonderful Life! This truly captures what it would be like walking down Main Street during Christmas time in Bedford Falls. The notes include all the holiday flowers and the softest whisper of spices, with bottom notes of balsam and pine. It's one that's sure to come out every holiday but use it each time you shave to remind yourself that you do have A Wonderful Life.
