"Jane Austen is highly recommended, especially if someone who is "manly" wants to do better in terms of language. I can't say much about Quirk Classics because I haven't read much of the classics yet."

Burt's Bees

Hello Gentlemen-Through a recent sale via my insurance plan, I was able to get a number of "Organic" grooming products for free. Among the items I picked out was a Burt's Bees "Skincare for Men" travel kit. There were both shaving cream and aftershave included inside of the kit.Does anyone have any experience with Burt's Bees products, especially their men's line?  I've tried it but I'm curious to know others opinions.As for my results.. The shaving cream is a little weird. It doesn't generate…See More

Multi-Brand Razor Packs

HI Everybody-I've been using Merkur blades or grocery store cheapos since I got my DE razor for Christmas I've been considering ordering one of the sampler pack sort of deals off of Amazon. The sort of things that come with a set each of 10 or so different brands. Should I go down this route, in order to sample a variety of blades? It's cheaper than buying an individual pack of numerous brands. Has anyone else tried this? Are they generally good quality blades, or a good representation of each…See More
