Journey's end.

I started this blog in 2009 to record my journey back to the world of traditional wet shaving. I published
Fido's Shaving Brush Blog soon afterwards having assembled a large collection of shaving brushes and  completed a lot of research. Then New Forest Brushes was established in 2010.

I hope that readers who stumble across my jottings here will have found something of interest. It has been a journey of exploration. I have tried a variety of products and variations in my shaving technique. And I have recorded my findings about many aspects of the world of wet shaving. I think that after 486 posts it's time to draw this blog to a close and focus my attention on my brush business.

Anyone interested can now follow me on Twitter as New Forest Brushes by following the link below.

Low price creams

Each of the creams I have recently bought are very easy to lather and are all just as good as much more expensive creams. If I have an issue it's about the scents. None match the enjoyment of using a cream the scent of which you have determined as something you specifically enjoy. Having said that, in the years I used canned goo, I never gave a thought to the scent! I'll use up all the creams and I'll be interested to discover which ones I decide to replace.

The Santa Cruz Hot Dog

Nothing to do with shaving, it just caught my eye. And I'm hungry.

Ingram shaving cream

I have now used this for several days with a variety of brushes. Each time I have bowl lathered. What can I say? It creates great lather quickly and easily. A pleasant and not too strong menthol scent, enabled a nice smooth shave leaving the skin soft and moist. At £1.75 in Superdrug UK stores, it's great value and will now take a place in my regular rotation. I'm fast becoming a bit miserly with my spending on creams and soaps. I have just ordered some Boots Cool Cologne shaving cream for £1.05 which I will pick up from my local Boots store next week.
