Lather staying power

Lather staying power

When you get into classic wet shaving you will learn about certain terms not quite beknown to you, one such concept is the 'staying power of lather'. This is quite important as traditional wet shaving can become a lengthy affair if you fall in love with to-die-for shaves. My face likes a single pass with the grain on my cheeks, and a single pass across the grain in my neck, but some guys like a 3 pass shave; with, across and against the grain on all parts of their face to get a BBS (Baby butt smooth) shave. Those guys lather up...


Is fênsie lyfseep vir my?

Is fênsie lyfseep vir my?

Definitief. Kom ek verduidelik, want in SA praat mans nie 'lyfseep' om die braaivleisvuur nie; met ander woorde as ek jou nie gaan vertel nie is die kanse goed dat jy nooit 'n opinie daaroor gaan hoor nie, boonop weet jou vrou ook mos bôggerol. Jare lank het ek die goed gekoop waarmee ons groot geword het, Lux, 'no-name brands' Palmolive en later Dove, in die 90's begin die maatskappye met die 'shower gels' of vloeibare seep en dit word toe net die ding. Jaar in en jaar uit ondervind ek dieselfde ding, normale vel in die somer, en 'n...

Your best set of wheels

Ever had a vehicle or two that you will never forget, they brought a smile to your face and a feeling of sprightlyness whenever you turned on the ignition or looked at it ? Mine were a Land Rover Discovery 3, a pre-70's Land Cruiser shorty and a specific Suzuki Katana of the few bikes I owned. For those of you who have not tried classic wet shaving; that special ride IS classic wet shaving, all the other ho-hum cars that you hardly remember are cartridge razors, gel in a can and disposable razors. No matter how much you read about...

Water wise shaving

Last year Gauteng experienced water shortage problems and now the Western Cape is on a road to a disaster, this despite the fact that many responsible citizens have cut their consumption dramatically. The two metros are not the only areas where water scarcity threatens to disrupt the lives of millions of people and animals, it is fact that very few areas in our country can boast surplus, or even adequate water availability. This blog offers some tips on how to have a super shave and only use around 500 ml or less water at a time. This is our effort to...


Waar is die manne?

Waar is die manne?

Ek het in die laaste ruk betrokke geraak by 'n globale beweging met die bedoeling om 'n 'Zero waste' leefstyl te handhaaf, kortliks behels dit die aanpassing van jou huishouding of gesin se lewensstyl tot so 'n mate dat julle geen afval produseer nie. Dit is herwinning se ouboet hierdie, want die mikpunt is om eerder die skepping van afval te verminder of te elimineer, deur glad nie produkte aan te skaf wat verpak is in weggooi verpakking nie. Die voordele van so 'n lewenstyl is baie, 'n skoner omgewing, 'n gesonder lewensstyl, en dit kan jou baie geld spaar...
