D.R. Harris Marlborough Shaving Soap

Email Print PDF

D.R. Harris & Co. of London has been producing some of the finest luxury personal care items for over 200 years.  Their line of shaving products is well respected among traditional wet shavers as being some of the best available.  The Marlborough stands out as one of the unique offerings among the more traditional fragrances, such as sandalwood, lavender, rose, etc., in which shaving creams and soaps are usually offered.  This article takes a closer look at one of my favorite shaving soaps, D.R. Harris Marlborough.


Green Pond Sandalwood Shaving Cream

What a pleasure it is for me to be able to review what it is hands down my favorite cream on the planet. I remember very well when I was talking shaving creams with my dear friend, Mike Sandoval, and he brought up the Green Pond sandalwood cream. I told him that I hadn’t tried it, and two days later there was a little box at my doorstep with a generous sample of this fantastic shaving cream and cigar or two. (That is what I call a package a la Mike.)


Parker 94R Safety Razor

Over the past few years, I have sampled several different models of Parker Safety Razor products, and in that time have seen significant improvement in the craftsmanship and design of the brand.  One thing that had always remained consistent with Parker razors was the long-handle design.  Parker recently introduced two new models that take a departure from their normal size format, featuring a traditional short handle instead. This article takes a closer look at one of them, the Parker 94R Safety Razor.


PILS Shaving Soap

If you see the word PILS on a shaving forum usually what follows is a barrage of positive reviews of their stunningly perfect stainless Double Edge Razors.  I have hardly seen any negative comments other than “It costs too much.”  Along with their outstanding razors, PILS makes other shaving products, including a shaving soap.


Valobra Soft Shaving Soap

Anyone who frequently visits Shaving 101 knows that I love Tabula Rasa, a unique product between a soap and a cream, so I was curious to try this Italian-made soft soap. Some reviewers have said that they use this product as a shaving cream, while others claim that it works better as a soap. In order to demystify the Valobra Soft Shaving Soap, this article shares my experiences and recommendations when shaving with this unique product.
