That’s awesome.  What did you get from O’Douds?  I have used their Multi-Purpose Pomade, their Summer Pomade, and the Matte Paste.  The Matte Paste is awesome.  I’m currently using the Multi Purpose that’s infused with CBD oil and has a orange basil scent.  It’s very nice.  The Multi-Purpose, before it was called that, was my first jar of home brew pomade.  They’ve improved it quite a bit since then.

From O'Douds I went with the Traditional Heavy Pomade
From Shear Revival I grabbed Gray Ghost, Gel Pomade, Crystal Lake and the texture spray.

I forgot to mention I have also been trying out Modern Pirate, not blown away but the scents are nice and organic ingredients mostly. Not a huge fan of the washability of it, but that's more my OCD than actual performance I think  :D

Tell me how ya like the gray.ghost @zhivago , I thought it was great.  I was interested in the gel pomade, I'd be curious how.you think it compares to the cream.  Sounds like a great haul

I love the Gray Ghost. They just released a collab with their Canadian retailer of it with a mango coconut based scent. They sold out on their site but the Can retailer may still have some.

Crystal Lake is one of my all time favorites but I don’t care for the newest scent.  The previous scent was my absolute favorite.

Correct.  It sounds pretty badass.  I have too much stuff now otherwise I’d consider getting some.

No sweat.  If you get it let me know about the smell.  It sounds awesome.  If scents aren’t a big driver for you check out Nostalgic Grooming.  They have some pretty crazy scents like Fruit Loops and Orange Soda that are really cool.

Yeah, it was $18 on the SR site.  Canadian markup I guess.

For me on the SR site, I woulda nabbed some oil or beard care at the same time and hit the free shipping threshold.

The regular Gray Ghost is still very good.  I also love the American Gardens clay.  Very strong hold with a nice matte finish and a clean wash out.

If anyone’s looking for a really good aftershave I highly recommend Madame Scodioli.  They have a bunch of scent profiles.  I’ve used Step Right Up and it’s dope af.  I got an email from them today that they have a new line of beard oils out.  Im currently unbearded but I’m sure it’s amazing.

I've been looking for a killer new beard oil @Matt as I'm working towards being my best bearded self again, may just have to check that out.  If I get some I'll be sure to post about it

The Ad Astra tonic has espresso in the scent, I'm immediately 50% sold  ;D
