    Parker Travel Safety Razor

    There are some things that simply should not be used when traveling: Travel Weights (that fill up with water so that you can have dumbbells on the go) or the Travel Infrared Sauna (that assembles into a personal wet sauna suite in case you need an immediate increase in humidity). When it comes to shaving, however, there are many travel products that can be helpful when you are away from home. Usually travel products are under-sized, which can make using the product awkward or less comfortable. The Parker Travel Safety Razor proves that you can have both comfort and portability in a quality travel razor.

    Taylor of Old Bond Street Eton College Shave Cream

    Early in the 20th century, a historian of Eton College wrote, “No other school can claim to have sent forth such a cohort of distinguished figures to make their mark on the world.” Princes William and Harry are alumni, and David Cameron is the 19th British Prime Minister who attended Eton. It is the most famous high school in the world and boasts a long and proud history. In the shaving world, Taylor of Old Bond Street is a well-known brand with its own long and proud history. Drawing youthful inspiration from the famous school, Taylor produced the Eton College fragrance and shaving range.

    iKon H20 Safety Razor

    Across all business segments, products have evolved over time as entrepreneurs have sought to improve upon existing designs. Skyscrapers are constructed taller, cars are engineered to go faster, and smart phones are thinner and more powerful with each release. In the shaving industry, iKon Razors is one obvious example of this concept. This brand merges and modifies existing designs to create new and innovative safety razors. The stainless steel iKon H20 Safety Razor is a stunning hybrid of styles and features.

    The Bluebeards Revenge Scimitar Safety Razor

    The paradigm of British wetshaving was changed with the debut of The Bluebeards Revenge. This brand kicked Geo. F. Trumper in the arse and gave D. R. Harris and Co. a collective black eye. The modern and whimsical products from Bluebeards maintain the quality of these traditional British brands, but bring wit, sarcasm, and big stamped skull and crossbones to the market.  This article takes a look at the Scimitar, the premium double edge safety razor that bears the distinctive Bluebeards logo.

    Twinluxe Renewing Face Wash & Scrub

    In recent years, more and more men have come to realize the benefits of traditional wetshaving.  As men have abandoned their canned gels and plastic razors for more traditional products, many have also come to realize the benefits of a skin care regimen.  Twinluxe, a luxury skincare and shaving brand, offers a complete men’s solution that incorporates both proper skin care and shaving in their product portfolio.  I have been impressed with Twinluxe’s shaving products and was curious to see if its skincare system worked equally as well.  This review takes a look at the core component of the skin care line, the Renewing Face Wash & Scrub.

    TwinLuxe Smooth Shave Cream

    Because of my love for traditional wet shaving, most of the products I use fall into that category. Occasionally, however, a new product comes along that does not fit exactly into that definition.  When the Tsai brothers contacted me and asked if I would be willing to take a look at their TwinLuxe shaving system, I was hesitant at first. They offer a modern, high-priced cream that requires no water to create lather.  Their innovation to create a unique product and their philosophy of shaving as a daily luxury convinced me to give this product a try. This article focuses on the central product of the TwinLuxe shaving line, the Smooth Shave Cream.
