Discussion in 'General Shaving' started by Far Cry Toff, Sunday November 12, 2017.
To me overseas means just that. Anywhere non UK, which includes Southern Ireland, France etc.
Personally I would still go for "non-UK" or "abroad", but that's maybe my foreign language perspective.
Pitralon forever - Real pens have a nib - If it doesn't tick, it's not a watch.
I don't mind which synonym is used, but surely abroad is American for awoman.
What about 'Your Favourite YouTuber'?
Could there be anyone save Mantic ...
Don't forget Chip Spaulding's very informative multi pass video. Dat's an option.
Take your point Merton, though I'm probably still a Mantic fan. Hope you're still taking care of that finger mate.
There's a few which spring to mind. PaulH, Kevy shaves and Nick shaves for starters.
Did I ever tell you I met Mantic at a shaving show in Chicago maybe 6-7 years ago. Unfortunately he was besieged and sadly, no real one on one time with him. Met the big cheese over at SRP also.
Good call Rob!
Bet he tells everyone 'bout the time he met you though !
Watching some of these guys is like sitting in front of the box to watch adverts lol.
Nick shaves is probably the best out there.
Is there going to be an award for who comes up with the best structure for shaving awards?
I've got to be honest, I find Nick Shaves about the most involving. That being said, @Kevy does a great job and I enjoy his when I do get round to watching YouTube vids. As for a newcomer, I think the @londonshaver has a definite potential with his videos.
I think that’s tad unfair. I think PaulH and Kevy are upfront about what they’ve been given. Whether they are unbiased about what they use is a whole other discussion. Watching PaulH on a Sunday morning has become part of my Sunday morning ritual, sad as it might sound. He’s a happy chappy and it’s a nice way to spend half an hour while I have my breakfast.
I do think Nickshaves is one of the very best on there. It's his videos which got me into DE shaving. I like his no nonsense approach.
I also think Michael Freedberg is good too.
Being honest about it doesn't change the fact that it is advertising in its purest form
Obviously not my thing watching some of these guys
This kind of things happen everywhere on youtube now people are making serious money advertising all kind of products and services. My daughter works in social media and the other day she asked me if I knew anybody in their early 20s doing shaving videos on YouTube as she needed to recruit a few for a client.... they call them influencers..... I'm not saying the people you named are being paid.... just annoying
I’m with you there. I watch quite a lot on YouTube (not just Wet Shaving vids BTW) and there’s loads of blatant advertising or ‘sponsored’ videos. It doesn’t take me long to twig they have vested interest in a product and move quickly onto someone else.
Some great debate here
So are we doing the Awards @nick_s,...I don't know how to proceed from here.
The problem with the Big Name Youtube reviewers is that many have become "whores" and rarely if ever pan a product as then the free stuff would stop.
