INSIDE THE BOX
Each month we send you our hand-picked choices of the best shaving products available for a traditional wet shave, right to your door. The first box includes a double edged safety razor, blades, brush, shaving soap/cream and more! As well as step by step instructions so you don't have to worry about anything. We've got it all covered.
All boxes vary. The below products are some of what you can expect to see when you sign up to The Personal Barber
The first monthly box you will receive will include The Personal Barber safety razor. Our traditional styled safety razor is perfect for the beginner wet shaver. It has a balanced weight and relatively thin head for maximum control when keeping the correct angle and for maintaining light pressure. Made up of 3 parts, it is easy to take apart and replace blades. Locking system ensures blades are always placed in straight, removing the potential for user error, ensuring a consistently even cut.
The first monthly box you receive will include The Personal Barber synthetic hair shaving brush. Our brush is made from a high quality nylon but has a softness somewhere between boar hair and badger hair. This makes it ideal for whipping up a thick lather but still feels comfortable on your face. It's also far easier to maintain, just rinse thoroughly after each use and flick dry, and doesn't need breaking in like most animal hair brushes do. Plus it is animal friendly.
Every month we provide you with an ample supply of double edge razor blades so you never have to experience the feel of a dull blade tugging at your hairs. To make it even more interesting we change up the brands every month. Why is this important? Because different brands of blades have varying levels of sharpness and employ different materials in their manufacturing processes which means your shaving experience will be different depending on the blade you use. What's more, it is important to use the correct type of blade for your skin type and hair thickness so you have the most comfortable shave possible. The only way you can know which blade to use is to try them all, which is what we set out to do.
Every month we provide you with new shaving soaps from around the world, no two months are the same. Here in the UK it can feel like there simply isn't much choice for soaps, there are a few big names but even they are hard to find in the shops! We think that most people use canned foaming gel (full of preservatives and things that shouldn't be put on the skin) because that's the option that is available to them. But no more! We will be introducing you to everything that the shaving soap world has to offer from subtle unscented bars, for those wanting to focus on their aftershave, to mild manly woody aromas, to wild and unexpected fragrances. And then there are the benefits of using a soap or cream with a brush on your skin as it exfoliates and keeps it looking young. We hope trying out a variety of brands will keep you looking forward to your next box.
In case you haven't already guessed, we like to make your shaving experience with us both interesting and proper. We want you to be excited to try new things but never at the expense of novelty, first and foremost is a great shave which is why we go to great lengths to provide products that are great for your skin. All boxes include mystery gifts ranging from pre-shave oils, aftershave balms, colognes to alum products. Just like with our soaps, no two boxes will be the same so you are constantly left guessing. And, of course, we will explain not only how to use these rare and exotic items but why you should use them.
