Mantic59’s Favorite Shaving Products

favorite stuff

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.  But after all this time, my “short rotation” has been pretty stable for my circumstances (i.e. when I’m not testing something!) so maybe it’s time for me to discuss my favorite shave products.

West Coast Shaving’s “Deal of the Day” for today is for DR Harris Lavender Shaving Soap.  In my opinion DR Harris’ tallow-based shaving soaps are excellent: one of the few “big name” shaving soaps that haven’t been reformulated into inferior products.  And that this deal is for the soap in a bowl instead of just a refill puck is a bonus.  At $22.99 (from $27.50) it’s is a great deal for this shaving soap.

One of the cooler parts of working with our host, Mantic59, is that I get shaving advice from the Shave Tutor, himself. But the coolest part is that, occasionally, Mark sends me a goodie box of stuff that he presumably can’t get around to trying himself (hey, I’ve seen photos of his shave den – let’s just say Mark is well stocked for the Shavepocalypse.) 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,…
