    Default Anyone remember this ?

    A flashback to the '70s . You screwed the cartridge of shave cream into the brush base , then turned the knob on the bottom , and the shave cream came out of a tube onto the polyester brush .

    Hello, dave5225:

    How fascinating. Something about that brush rings a little bell. I might have seen something similar to it way back when.

    Listen, with a brush like that, who needs a silver tip and a Castle Forbes shave cream?

    Thanks for providing the picture. Fascinating, indeed.

    Regards,

    Obie

    Yep! I actually had one too. I gave up in it because it was unwieldy and the cartridges were expensive to replace (for a teenager). And as an aside it was launched in the 80's and died quickly thereafter. I did like the scent of the shave soap very much though. It had a lavendery sandalwood type thing going on if I'm remembering right. I actually got one off of ebay a few years back just to smell that scent again. I thought, at the time, that it smelled vaguely like Floris' No. 89.

    I don't recall whether the lather was any good though. I'm thinking it wasn't because I stuck with my staple method at the time which was Noxzema. Mom tossed the brush after I moved out.

    Regards,
    EL

    I bought it new , sometime in the early '70s . I found it in my dresser drawer , and now it's part of my vintage shaving brush collection LOL .
    I just saw elbonators post , so I guess I bought it in the early '80s . I'm 55 so you have to give me a break , it was a while back .

    Yeah I gave it up too , because of the cost of the cartridges , and the fact that it was no better than Noxzema . The product is typical of the Gillette philosophy ; give them the razor or in this case the brush , and stick it to 'em for the refills .

    That's a really unique product...

    ...but I think I'll stick with my TGQ soap and badger brush!

    Yeah , that's what I've been using after I stopped using Noxzema . My favorites are the Bay Rum , and the Desert Ironwood .
