Current Soaps and Creams
Tim sent money for my birthday (2017), and I got some new soaps. I got Fine Snake Bite with a Fine bowl and Musgo Real classic scent shaving soap.
I received this Cremo Cream Shave Cream in a trade with a fellow TSDer. It is non foaming, but it seems to be a nice cream. I may use it in conjunction with Williams or Colgate.
I got this puck of vintage Colgate Mug Shave Soap from a guy on TOST.
I ordered Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap with money from Father's Day from Tim and Phil.
|Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap with Ceramic Dish|
Mitchell's Wool Fat soaps were first produced in the early 1930's by Bradford chemist Fred Mitchell who realized that the natural lanolin content of wool fat, which kept the hands of local sheep shearers and wool sorters so exceptionally soft, could also be beneficial to delicate complexions and sensitive skins. Mitchell's Wool Fat Soaps are still made to Mr. Mitchell's original formula, based on a recipe from the turn of the century and incorporating lanolin from the wool fat as the key ingredient. The soaps are a simple and natural product with a delicate scent and are very popular among avid wet shavers. Purchased June 15, 2014. I traded the soap for a Schick Krona DE razor. I later got MWF back in a trade for my straight razor. It arrived February 26, and I shaved with it on February 27. I'm happy again.
