The Bluebeards Revenge Post Shave Balm

Your face takes a beating from stress, diet, and the elements, especially during the cold winter season. Using an aftershave balm helps to moisturize and heal freshly exfoliated skin that was exposed while shaving. The latest offering from the Bluebeards Revenge brand is designed to complete the ultimate shaving experience for "real men" with thick stubble. While the skull and crossbones symbol usually represents poison or treachery, The Bluebeards Revenge Post Shave Balm bears the mark and actually helps to soothe and comfort.


Pinaud Clubman Aftershave

There are many scents that transport individuals to a specific time and place.  For many, a smell of something cooking might remind them of their childhood.  The smell of wet grass in the morning might remind someone of summer and baseball.  Then there is a smell of the barbershop that many cannot place their finger on, but are always searching for that masculine scent.  That smell is Pinaud Clubman.


RazoRock Alum Ultimate Aftershave

Potassium alum mineral salt, the potassium double sulfate of aluminum, is a unique mineral because it has antiseptic and astringent properties that are particularly useful for wet shavers.  When rubbed on wet skin, alum provides a mild stinging sensation similar to that of an alcohol-based aftershave splash and it helps to close pores and tighten the skin while also sealing any small nicks from shaving.  Prior to the invention of antibiotics, alum blocks were used regularly to prevent infections that might have occurred from nicks or cuts. While alum blocks are typically cut into square or rectangular blocks, a more innovative alum product has been designed for the traditional wet shaver, the RazoRock.


Master Bay Rum Aftershave

For many men the subject of traditional wet shaving conjures memories of the old-school barbershops that their fathers and grandfathers visited.  These shops where men gathered to share stories while getting their hair cut were filled with the unique aromas of aftershaves, hair tonics, and talcum powder -- scents that personified what a real barbershop was all about. The signature scent of this barbershop experience was bay rum, the quintessential old-school fragrance.  This article takes a closer look at one of the most affordable and convenient bay rum aftershaves, Master Bay Rum.


Pacific Nick Stick

Even the most experienced shaver can cut himself on any given day. When this happens, you should reach for the Pacific Nick Stick. Unlike styptic pencils that leave an obvious white smear on your face, this clear liquid is a secret weapon against nicks and cuts. I had never heard of the brand until Lee's Safety Razors began to carry it and Lee asked me to try it out. I was skeptical and didn't expect it to be effective. The Pacific Nick Stick is a very small tube and has no noticeable scent. Its label is simple and it could be easily overlooked among anyone's toiletries; however, I quickly learned that this small stick plays a large role among my shaving supplies.
