St.JamesofLondon.com established in 1953 is a website that sells mens shaving products. There are many websites out there today that sell the same products but not every product is made from the same mold. St. James of London is a company that strives to provide a classy shave at a great price and that’s exactly what they have done.

I found St.JamesofLondon.com during one of my web searches for shave soap. I do a lot of searching for shave soap and I have found a lot of great companies that provide a great product. St.JamesofLondon.com is one of those companies that I have described. Their shave soap and oils provide a nice smooth classy shave that is a step above the rest.

I contacted Todd from St.JamesofLondon.com  through email and he responded very quickly. He was very polite, very helpful and on board with a product review. my package of St. James of London seemed to arrive at my house very quickly. Todd’s great customer service and friendly presence is what makes this Bald guy want to continue to use St.JamesofLondon.com products and keep their products as an everyday staple in my shave routine.

If you ever get a chance to talk to Todd from St.JamesofLondon.com you will see why he must be an important and vital addition to their team and that’s one of the reasons why St.JamesofLondon.com is a class act that has great reviews online.

Why is St.James of London different?

As you  can see by the picture above I’m missing a bowl. That’s because with St. James of London there is no bowl necessary. You can certainly use one if it strikes your fancy, but you don’t need one. In fact St. James of London would prefer you not to. some of their shaving product was designed for a bowel less shave. The shave cream comes in a 2.5 FL OZ squeezable tube, You turn your brush bristles up and squeeze a little bit on top of the bristles. Then you apply the brush to your face/dome or both in a circular position working up a rich lather.

The only real problem I had with this method is that if you water log your brush before you applied the cream, once you turn your brush right side up all the water runs down on top of your head and into your face. There’s and easy fix to that, don’t water log your brush, just lightly wet it and you will be fine. I did not have the same problem when I applied it to my face. That was an easy fix.

This Lather stays in the brush even when its upside down!!

The Thick rich lather from the “Cedarwood & Clarysage” collection of St. James of London nestles into the bristles of your brush and doesn’t stray as if it were meant to be there all along. The lather is thick and rich but foamy as well with very little dissipation. I applied it by brush to my dome and face and waited to see if it disappears. The Cedarwood & Clarysage shave soap from St. James of London stayed right were it needed to. Even with my shave brush sitting right side up the, thick rich lather maintains its stay within the bristles of my brush. With  the “Cedarwood & Clarysage” shave soap A little goes along way. The lather evenly spreads over your dome and your face with little pressure making the lather on the loaded brush more than enough to get the job done.

The “Cedarwood & Clarysage”  has a great aroma that’s pleasing to the senses!
