July 13th, 2010 § 0

The name Pashana has been synonymous with hair care since its inception in London’s barbering district around 1910. Their traditional formulas, with their signature blend of Pashana oils, invigorate the scalp and add luster and life to your hair.

However known for their hair and scalp preparations, the Pashana line goes beyond hair tonics to encompass brilliantine, friction lotion, shampoo, aftershave and cologne. Though the line’s packaging has been updated, their formulas still retain the tradition that has made them a gentleman’s staple.

July 13th, 2010 § 0

British grooming purveyor Erasmic has specialized in shaving preparations since the 1880s. Their shaving soaps and creams are enriched with the moisturizing properties of coconut oil and glycerin to offer the smoothest of shaves.

Erasmic has a traditional scent, and a traditional composition; you won’t find in here the myriad chemicals other brands use to “soften” (or break down) the skin and beard. Instead, these shaving creams and soaps rely on an old-fashioned cushion of lather to help the razor glide across your face. The most surprising quality about this English preparation is its value; an amazing grooming product with a small price tag.
