The holiday season is a time of year that’s packed with tradition and lore. Everyone knows about Christmas trees, stockings, Santa, and so many of these other traditions, but few people talk about the darker side of the Holidays.

Changes are coming at Dr. Jon's

September 18, 2015

Tailor and Barber name their top shaving soap companies!

July 17, 2015

I’ve been having a lot of conversations about scent lately, and I’ve definitely found that it’s a pretty significant driving factor in the choice for shaving products. I still think that performance is the most important factor. However, with so many fantastic, artisan shaving soap makers out there, the choice of a top-performing soap is getting easier. This makes the factor of more appealing and stronger scents a higher priority.
