Shave Sticks The Ignored Soap

It may not be the case for the seasoned wet shaver, but for many of the non classic wet shavers out there the shave stick is an oddity, that would be met with some confusion and surprise (I know it was for me). For the most part I would imagine you would be hard pressed finding a shave stick in a drug store, grocery store, or wherever you buy your shaving supplies (at least in my part of North America). But it is a shame shave sticks are a convenient alternative, whether you are looking for a quick shave at home or an easy option for travel. If you have yet to give a shave stick a try I compiled a list of four options to get you going. If you have no idea on how to use a shave stick you can take a look at this article – but it is really rather simple 1. wet your face; 2 rub the shave stick all over it; 3 build you lather with a shave brush.
