A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a small homey shaving site that I stumbled upon after becoming dissatisfied elsewhere. I became a member of this small site and was welcomed with open arms. This site was populated with the kindest, and greatest people. One person in particular, who shall remain nameless, sent me quite a few free samples of soaps and creams to try. I know he is still an esteemed member here, and i want him to know that I never forgot his kindness, and just how much his generosity meant to me. I considered him then, and to this day, the greatest Ambassador to the Wet Shaving World..
So, as a way of following his example, and partially repaying his kindness, I am offering two packages of shave soaps and creams. At least one in each group is near full, and the rest have very many shaves left in them.
I would like to see these two parcels go to folks that are new to the wet shave arena, just learning the ropes, so to speak. Shipping in the CONUS will be on me, and the only request I have is that the winners someday offer similar to a group of their choosing. I thought of giving active military an edge, but just decided to open it to all newcomers.

If you are interested in receiving one of the groupings, post your desire, and how far along in your wet shaving journey you are. I'll assign a number in order of your reply post, and Sunday next week, my wife will choose the winners from a fish bowl. The fairest way I can think to make it...

Here are the two groupings..

Still really new to wet shaving, but not in. Someone on this site did something similar for me, sent me some soaps to try and gave answers to all of the questions i had, probably one of the coolest interactions I've ever had with someone i have never met. All he asked was that i do the same, i have been with people i know and plan to do one on this site very soon (just had a beautiful baby so will be a bit before things calm down). Very cool PIF. Good luck to all that are in.

I'm in. I have been wet shaving for about a month now. I liked it so much that I shaved my beard down to a goatee. I am disabled and on a fixed income, so I can't afford to buy a lot of soaps. I had some blades gifted to me, which I greatly appreciate. I started shaving using my Dad's old flair tip. I also have a Gillette ball end tech that I use. I won a Razorock Mission in a PIF on another site that I am using now. The only thing that I do not have is various soaps to try. I have yet to try a cream. So I thank you in advance for the opportunity to enter and for your generosity. As to which grouping, either one would be appreciated.

Been wet shaving for about 3 weeks and it is awesome! Would like to give #2 a try.  Next is to get my son  (13) into it, and he is looking forward as soon as we get him set up.  Thanks for the PIF.

I'm in. I'm new to wet shaving, I've been using cartridges for about 25+ years and finally decided enough was enough. I'm still waiting on my supplies and would really appreciate this offer as I have nothing at the moment. Thank you so much for your generosity.

That TFS "Rosse" (The entire name was quite a mouthful and I just don't remember it) is a great soap. Folks love Cella .. I didn't, but it was similar, and IMO, more pleasurable!

And thanks to all for your kind words and support. For what it's worth, I just saw on the news last week that a scientific study shows more benefits for those who give from the heart than those that do not. In spite of the world's problems, I still believe that Man is basically good.
