Shave of the Day: September 7, 2016

Finally, I think I can start cranking out some new content, including grooming product reviews. Yesterday was back to school day! My daughter started first grade, which is insane. I can’t believe she’s already in grade school. It seems like she was born just last week. Anyway, summer is tough for writing. There are house projects, day trips, vacations, no babysitters, sick dogs, and so on. But now I have some days back, and some time to write.

Let’s get on to this shave. I don’t think I’ve used this shaving cream in over a year. But right now I’m trying to use every summer scent I have left in my shaving cabinet before that fall weather hits. I’m excited to break out my fall fragrances, but I still love my citrus scents too, and Taylor’s “Eton” shaving cream is packed with citrus, plus that wonderful Taylor of Old Bond Street performance.

A quick note here about Folsom & Co. I really enjoyed their aftershaves, but it seems like they might have stopped production. Their website was not pulling up for me, and I couldn’t find an online retailer still stocking their products. Hopefully, this is just a temporary setback for Folsom & Co., but time will tell.
