D.R. Harris Arlington Shaving Stick is a great alternative for men who don't want to use a mug to hold their soap. It's also great for men who don't want to have to resort to cheap quality drugstore foam when they're traveling. This D.R. Harris product takes everything that's great about shaving and puts it in convenient stick form.
The stick works no differently than bars. You use a brush to get the lather going and then apply it as you normally would. The difference is that this stick is a lot easier to deal with than a mug or bowl when you're on the road. It's fast and convenient, but it doesn't take anything away from what a bowl full of similar products have to offer.
If you're on the road, remember to bring a good razor along with you. It will make all the difference, just as it does at home. In fact, with a good safety razor and stick of soap, you have all the luxuries of grooming at home reduced to a compact package that you can take most anywhere and keep your skin healthy looking its best.
