Ever since I started making shaving videos, people have asked me what my favorite shaving products are. I’ve always resisted answering because I didn’t want to make it sound like I was making a blanket recommendation.

West Coast Shaving’s “Deal of the Day” for today is for DR Harris Lavender Shaving Soap.

These aren’t the only choices of course but they should give you great results.

So, even though I now have enough product to last me well into the next decade, I made time to work my way through this latest haul. Here are a few quick-hitter reviews of the soaps,…
