Pre de Provence 63 Shaving Soap and Aftershave Balm Review

Pre de Provence gets a lot of hype. I’ve heard about these wet shaving products for years. But I thought it was just that…hype. I’m not sure why. I had no basis for my disbelief. I simply was a doubter. Then the 63 men’s fragrance range was released, and I heard and read more positive comments. So I decided I had to try the Pre de Provence 63 shaving soap and aftershave balm.

Cap’n Hunter’s Mutiny Bay Rhum Shaving Soap and Aftershave Review

We all know pirates loved their rum. “Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum,” and all that. But did you know they used the rum for more than just getting drunk? Imagine yourself and twenty to fifty other men out to sea for months at a time with no running water, working hours on end to sail a ship, working up a sweat in the Caribbean sun on a daily basis…

Herban Cowboy Dusk Aftershave Balm Review

Sometimes I buy a new wet shaving product, either for my personal use or for a product review, and it gets lost in my shaving cabinet. Have you seen some of my pictures of my shaving cabinet? It’s overcrowded and not very well organized, to say the least. One of the products that stayed hidden for a little while was a tube of Herban Cowboy “Dusk” aftershave balm. I re-discovered this aftershave balm when I was digging around recently, and figured there was no better time to take this for a few shaves and put together another review…

Truefitt & Hill Grafton Review

I recently purchased a large sample pack from Truefitt & Hill, which, in my opinion, is the best selection of samples offered by one brand.  I’ve been looking to pair down my cologne cabinet to several scents/fragrances rotated seasonally.  In my OCD mind, I would like a perfect world where my everyday shaving cream or soap, aftershave, and cologne all come from the same house.  Unfortunately, this has turned out to be an, almost, insurmountable task for a couple of reasons.  First, I like too much variety in my shaving routine to stick to one soap or cream every day, and, second, no manufacturer seems to be able to put together a full lineup of products I love.  Some companies fall short in one or two categories.  Others only make aftershaves, like Fine Accoutrements.  Needless to say, my search has not been fruitful.  I’ve resigned myself to finding colognes to rotate with the seasons, while, hopefully, finding some complementary shaving products along the way.  Enter Truefitt & Hill Grafton. I’ve already written a review of Truefitt & Hill’s 1805 shaving cream, and the performance of the Grafton shaving cream is on par with the 1805…
