Better lather with a tallow soap (been around for 60 yrs) then goop in a can.

I do not get the urinal cake vibe, but see how someone could.

I generally use TOBS and love anything with an orange or rose vibe. Anything in that stack of indulgence you would recommend?

You can't fit all of that in the bathroom. He probably just keeps the few items he uses on a daily basis there and stores everything else that we see here in the closet.

And collecting all that as a hobby is a weird flex but we're all into different things so it's cool. Nicely displayed as well.

If you want to be practical about it, don't need a bowl. I use Nivea cream it's cheap and good. Just squeeze some on wet face and lather.
The most important thing about shaving - hot water before and cold water after. There's a lot of hype about it these days....

I use the lid of my Proraso as a bowl. Lathers well. Rinse for quick clean up.

I use a bowl from Dollarama lol
And a good thick badger brush.

Save your money on a specialized bowl/mug and put it towards a better brush.

Arkos a good performer for me...in a neat, compact format and lasts a long time at a cheap price.

I tried a Canadian made product on amazon called Henri et Victoria (cognac and cigar scent) that was quite good and similar to TOBS...
Piccadilly shaving cream (Sandalwood) is also quite good....both have less artificial scents than TOBS, IMO....that’s my only complaint about TOBS, it smells more like room freshener than a perfume.

With shaving sticks like Arko, you can lather directly on your face. No bowl needed. Search on YouTube for a demonstration.

I have a Rockwell branded synthetic brush that works well. It's a basic OEM brush but I think synthetics are really beginner friendly as they don't need to be presoaked to soften the bristles.

As always, YMMV
