10 days till Christmas…And we’re badgering you about brushes!

Posted by on Dec 15, 2014 in Lifestyle | 0 comments

When shopping for a new shaving brush, there are several factors to consider, and a wide range of brush types to choose from. But don’t be overwhelmed! Selecting the brush that will work best for you may not be what works best for someone else; we are each unique, as our brush should be! There are three types of shaving brushes available: badger hair, boar bristle, and synthetic, with badger hair largely the most popular choice. Badger hair has been used for centuries in the manufacturing of top quality shaving brushes, predominantly because of its heavy water absorbency. This is essential to accomplishing a clean, close wet shave, and leaving the skin fresh and smooth. Using a brush, wet from warm water, to mix your shaving soap or cream introduces air that will work up a rich lather, helping you get the consistency you desire without going through too much product. It massages the surface of your skin, raises the beard hairs and enables your razor to glide across your face with ease. Furthermore, many badger brushes are quality graded based off appearance and softness of the hairs, with the common classifications “Pure”, “Best”, “Super”, and “Silvertip”. Here is a breakdown: PURE BADGER Pure badger hair is the most readily available grade of hair since it covers a large percentage of the badger’s body. Because of its high availability, pure badger hair is the least expensive of badger types and makes a great starting point for a beginning shaver who wants to learn wet shaving before moving on to a higher quality and more expensive brush. Pure badger typically ranges in color from dark tan to black, and is usually coarser in texture than higher grade hair. Brushes filled with pure badger are often manufactured with the tips trimmed to form the final shape of the brush loft. This makes the tips of the hair blunt and gives them a scratchier feel on the face that some men find appealing for exfoliation. The courser texture of pure badger also makes it very useful for lathering soaps well because of its ability to agitate the surface of the soap very easily. Some manufacturers offer variations of pure, such as black badger brushes, which comprise only the darkest hairs to create brushes that have longer lofts and more stiffness in the overall feel of the knot. Over time the tips of pure badger hair will soften and feel a bit more broken in, but will never be as soft on the face as higher grades of badger hair. BEST BADGER Best badger offers a significant improvement in feel and quality over pure. Best grade hair is harvested from large areas of the badger, including the belly area of the animal. The hair ranges in color from lighter brown to gray and has more color separation in the length of the hair,...

12 days till Christmas…Enjoy and indulge this holiday season with Royal Apothic

Posted by on Dec 12, 2014 in Lifestyle | 0 comments

Royal Apothic caters to men’s and women’s tastes alike. For men we carry the Heroes & Aristocrats line featuring top quality men’s grooming products and kits. For the lovely ladies we carry the mini Eau de Perfume and the luxurious hand cremes available in various scents. Royal Apothic uses a highly delicate formula that is truly designed to enhance the performance of its products for the skin and body. The men’s products are packaged in an elegant gift box that is both modern and traditional while the women’s products showcase a vintage design.  A dedicated cult of fans have made this product line a must-have! The Royal Apothic line is the creation by Sean O’Mara, a Los Angeles and London based designer. O’Mara started his career working for prominent and established companies like Proctor & Gamble and Murad Global Skincare.   He worked with many influential brands, so surrounding himself with glamorous photo shoot settings and gorgeous locations were of second nature. O’Mara was inspired, after directing many photo shoots, “about translating the glamour and elegance of these big-budget campaigns into everyday space.” This line of thinking drove O’Mara into a secondary career path. He had built a reputation for taking lackluster properties and turning them into glamorous spaces. His unique eye for design quickly gained him popularity in the Los Angeles and London markets. In 2006, he found his inspiration in a Notting Hill bookstore. O’Mara came across, a centuries-old apothecary manual that would spark the idea for the sophisticated Royal Apothic line which allowed him to combine both his beauty and design background. O’Mara says, “I wanted to create a product so beautiful, you just have to leave it out on display, “And a formula so decadent you just have to use it.” The Royal Apothic line is truly exceptional from the inside out!          ...

Captain Fawcett’s Moustache Wax. One of the most intriguing products I have ever come across. The product “Moustache Wax” is one that we have been asked for at Revolucion for the last few years. Perhaps due to the Movember Moustache Charity movement. The “stache” is making somewhat of a comeback from the finer gentleman years! Captain Fawcett’s I feel is leading the way with Moustache wax that gives a “Stiff” upper lip! Available in Sandalwood, Lavender, and Ylang Ylang. The Capt Fawcett uses only finest natural ingredients and essential oils for his stache waxes.
