Of course before that question there is general confusion as to why I am using these “outdated” tools, that for the most part require an online purchase because I can’t pick them up at the grocery store, to perform my morning ritual of shaving.

Razorock Don Donato Italian Shaving Soap

I picked up a tub of Razorock Don Donato Italian Shaving Soap a few weeks back, the third of fourth shaving soap from the Italian Barber (it is also currently available on Amazon) I have purchased in the last five or six months.

But for the meantime here is a quick look at the Italian Barber’s Eleganza Shaving Soap

Italian Barber Acquatico Shave Soap

I added this tub of Acquatico Shaving Soap from the Italian Barber to an order I was placing a few weeks back. I was trying to hit the free shipping level so I was looking for some lower cost items to top up my cart and I came across this soap. At $4.00 U.S. how could I go wrong.
