Mike Sandoval has been sharing product reviews for the past 8 years. As a tobacconist, he was respected for his knowledge of cigars and pipe blends, and the special blends he produced in the tobacco lounge that he managed. He offered online reviews to describe the aromas, flavors, and strengths of products that he came across in the industry. In 2006, a friend in the cigar business mentioned a new line of men's shaving products that he was going to offer in his store. Like most men, Mike had considered shaving to be daily chore, but he was interested to try out the shaving products. For Valentine's day, his wife gave him a small badger hair shaving brush and a starter set of lavender scent products. He began a journey into the world of luxury wet shaving and learning the details about these new products, and he found himself looking forward to shaving every morning. Over the years, his collection of brushes, razors, creams, and colognes has expanded to take over their small bathroom. Mike still enjoys sharing reviews of his favorite products and introducing others to shaving and hygiene products so they, too, can look forward to their morning routines.
