Today, i have received the packages that i have been waiting patiently for. I had to share this graciousness and my gratitude from my heart to the 3 gentlemen, who wanted to gift me and bless me with items that I've been wanting and others that i was curious about. I also would like to share the PIf items that Phil shipped to me, with the products that i ordered from winning.

a Blessing: (Bullgoose pif win, from Phil)
1st up are the items from Bullgoose. I spent 3 days trying to figure out what I'd like to use, by trying to see what i need and have heard many great things about. It took this long, simply because i am not at all the kind of man that splurges on himself, only others. Also, i never even used nor held most things that i read about here on the Nook and i don't really have the funds to make, (what i consider outlandish), purchases for some of the costs that i see. I know nothing about the scents, besides what is described online, so i wanted to be sure that i find the things that were more my speed.

What i chose was a very great decision, as i have smelled each item and they are beyond prefect. I'll be using this weekend.

a Gift: (from Johnny)
Next, Johnny messaged me last week, and was kind enough to offer me some beard oils, that he no longer desired to keep. Because he recently shaved his beard off , he knows that i still have my beard that i plan on keeping for quite some time. He wanted to send his to me if i wanted them, and of course i accepted. Anything to help my beard is awesome to me, and these products were the future purchases i was going to make. All except one, the Proraso, we're things i had knew about. This is new to me but smells and feels so good on the old ugly mug.

a Genuine tryout: (from Steve (Steve56))
Steve is new, and had been only on a few posts before he came across a thread i created, about the quality of vintage straight razors. He messaged me, informing me that he wanted to lend me a couple of his str8s to try out for however long I'd want to. I was floored by this, because honestly, who just does that when they don't even know you?. TSN is who!

Steve, Jonny and Phil, each of you have made my heart softer this week! I am not at all capable of ignoring the goodness done by people, and realizing where it comes from.
Thank you guys, from the bottom of my heart.

Whether it be a giveaway or a gift, God knows i am always thankful with what i have already, and that i am focused on things for my family, not myself. TSN is great, not because of these gestures, but because of the community of honest and good men that are still alive in the world we live in.


- Bryan

Awesome Bryan.  Enjoy and we look forward to your comments and reviews of these products.

One note of caution - Tea tree oil.  Wash your hands thoroughly after using tea tree oil if you are near pets.  Pets are allergic to the tea tree oil smell and I have heard that it can cause seizures in pets.  I do not know if the bottles above contain that warning.  Not an issue if you are not near pets or do not have pets.

It really is! I have so far only used a couple items, but I'll be writing my review of the German Classic, later today.
