Shaving With Land Ho!

Today I reached back into the review box from the past and pulled out two products from Captain's Choice, Land HO!'s shaving cream and balm. No bowl lather today but it was a great shave.

The Captain's shaving cream had been lying on its side for a while and when it was opened it revealed the shaving cream had all moved to the side of the tub so I had to mix it up a bit before use. I first thought that maybe the cream was too old to use but that was not the case it just needed a little mixing and it turned right back to when I first received it.

Shaving With La Toja Stick

Today is my first try using the shaving stick La Toja and let me say this now I'm not digging the scent one bit. Now that I have that out of the way I can tell you a little about this regarded shaving stick.

La Toja is a renowned Spanish brand known for its luxurious shaving products, including its iconic shaving stick. La Toja shaving sticks are celebrated for their rich lather and moisturizing properties, providing a smooth and comfortable shaving experience.

Made with natural ingredients, such as mineral salts from the La Toja island off the coast of Galicia in Spain, these shaving sticks offer a unique blend of nourishment and skincare benefits. The mineral salts are believed to have therapeutic properties, soothing the skin and leaving it feeling refreshed after each shave.

First Time Using Speick Shaving Stick

Today I use for the first time a shaving stick called Speick. I have used Arko's stick and on my first try I didn't use it correctly I was brought up on wet shaving charges for misuse of wet shaving equipment with the community. I did go back and make another video doing a stick shave properly. I will use the same method here using Speick.

This all came about during a conversation with my friend Dan he sent me two links to shaving sticks the Speick and the other La Toja. The La Toja has a scent that I clearly point out in the video I do not like but am willing to try in our next video.

The box that this came in has seen better days. Once it was removed from the box you could see the foil-like wrapping which covered the stick. Normally you would peal the foil back every time you need to reach an unused section of the stick. I didn't do that I pealed all the foil off I don't have a problem with doing it that way.

Infinity & Nebula Purple Shaving Bowl

Today I'm proud to introduce a new product from Wet The Face. Introducing 3D-printed shaving bowls. As I've said in the past I set out to learn Fusion 360 and in a few months I felt confident to create a few products and this is one of them.

The inside of our shaving bowl was designed to promote lather creation. The purpose of this specially designed textured bottom is to aid in breaking down the shaving soap or cream, incorporating air into the lather, and evenly distributing it across the bristles of the shaving brush. This process results in a thick, creamy lather that softens the beard hair, moisturizes the skin, and provides lubrication for a close, irritation-free shave.
