Omega 10048 Pro 48 Boar Shaving Brush Review

New year, same me. I’m back at it again with the men’s shaving product reviews. Today I’m taking a look at the Omega 10048 boar bristle shaving brush. This brush can also go by the names “Pro 48” or “Forty Eight 48”. This is one of two Omega brushes I’ve been using for the past six months or so…

2016 Men’s Grooming Product Awards

It’s that time of year again (ok, so I’m probably a week late). But it’s time to take a look at the past year and see what the best men’s grooming products of 2016 were. I know 2016 was a year most people want to forget, but there were some good things too. Today I want to take a look at what some of those were. So, without further ado…

L’Occitane Cade Shaving Soap Review

I think the best way to do this is to run through the few points that have been sticking in my mind while I’ve been working with this soap. I hope this makes more sense by the end of this post…
