I was kindly gifted an exquisite premium shaving gift set from the Personal Barber to review. It’s not easy finding the perfect gift for my husband so on first look I was really pleased and it kept getting better.
The mens traditional shaving kit is tastefully presented in a black box with banding, once opened there’s a tissue paper insert which you lift to reveal the shaving gift set.
The gift set has everything needed for a luxurious barber style shave. I’ll skip straight to the razor first as it’s gorgeous! It has a wonderful weight in your hand. The safety razor is ideal for people like my husband with sensitive skin. One blade means less irritation or bumps. The shaving kit also includes 5 Astra DE razor blades, which is enough for over a month’s daily shaves.
There’s something very appealing about a shaving brush. Included in this premium shaving kit is a synthetic hair shaving brush. It can stand upright so looks great in the bathroom too.
A premium shave would not be complete without shaving soap. The Mahogany Shaving Soap from Oatcake Soaps smells divine. Natural and handmade in London, it’s perfect if you want to avoid instant foam chemicals. They use the power of oats for a soothing irritation free shave and it’s packed full of skin loving ingredients. Oodles of mango butter mean that it whips up quickly into a lather with macadamia nut oil, meadowfoam oil and lanolin for a soft finish. No need for any post shave balms or moisturisers.
