Homemade Shaving Soap - Traditional Wet SHaving at Its Finest
Those who have traded in their can of shaving goo for a brush and mug are apt to wax poetic on the transformation of a daily chore into an enjoyable session of indulgent self-pampering.

We've got a few cans of gel left, and I'm not sure what we'll do with them. He won't use them now. Since I've started using my soap for shaving, neither will I.
