The thing that I have never understood is why people praise these shaving creams from taylor of old bond st, Trumpers, DR harris? If you look at the ingredients they are all made with unadulterated chemicals and no essential oils. For trumpers rose and violet shaving creams, I saw "parfum" or fragrance.

Why is this tolerated. If the shaving cream says "almond" why doesn't it have almond oil as opposed to artificial synthetic chemicals?

The natural oil is probably too expensive. The same debate can be made for perfumes. Most are made with synthetic chemicals that smell like certain natural smells.

T&H, trumpers, and DR harris are all $30? that is weird that at that price, they cannot put essential oils in their creams. I have rose of bulgaria which has rose damascena distillate for their rose scented shaving cream. The Lather almond shaving cream has almond oil and it is cheaper than the british shaving creams.

How can we complain about the canned gel being gunk when we are putting chemical "cream" on our face that almost has the same ingredients has the gel that we so hate among us wet shavers?

Lack of family during the holiday season

How does one cope with being alone during the holidays. My parents live in Florida. Close relatives are either dead or living several states away. The dream of having a family of my own is dead (S.O. doesn't want kids). It's so exhausting trying to meet strangers and trying to assemble a "family" out of them. See More
