FAQ

FOR THE SUBSCRIPTION:
How can I sign up to The Personal Barber subscription?
Signing up is easy and only takes a moment. Sign up here today! You can choose whether you want to be billed on a per box basis (every 45 days) or pay for a number of boxes up front at a reduced rate.
How does The Personal Barber work?
The Personal Barber is a recurring subscription service that provides you with everything you need to have the best possible shave and to enjoy doing it! Every 45 days (roughly 6 weeks) we send you a curated selection of essential high quality wet shaving products to keep you looking dapper whilst adding extras you may not have tried before to keep things intriguing. 
How much does it cost?
The Personal Barber provides you with the means to have a great and enjoyable shave for only £24.95 per box. We offer a 15% discount on your first box if you sign up for our newsletter and we also offer discounts for paying for longer subscriptions up front. These offer the biggest savings by far!
What do I get in The Personal Barber Subscription Box?
Your first box will include everything you need for a great shave so you can hit the ground running, even if you've never shaved before: a traditional safety razor, shaving brush, shaving soap/cream and replacement blades. On top of this we also feature extra pre and post-shave products you may never have tried before to make your morning routine even more interesting, such as pre-shave oils, balms, alums and more. Each month features completely different items but you will always be stocked with what you need to stay silky smooth. All products are handpicked and tested to make sure you only get the best available. You can find out more of what's inside the box on our blog here.
How does billing work?
Signing up for The Personal Barber means opting into a subscription service that bills you every 45 days. We also have multi-box pre-pay subscriptions at a discounted rate which are paid up-front, these too will automatically renew at the end of your subscription.
When does The Personal Barber ship boxes?
We aim to send out your box the same day that you place an order (if ordered by 12:00 Midday). The next box in your subscription will be shipped the day after your next renewal (roughly 45 days after your last payment). You will receive a shipping notice when your box ships.
How much does shipping cost?
It's free. For UK subscribers to our recurring subscription boxes, shipping is included as part of the monthly cost, you don't pay anything extra.

However buying individual items from our online shop (not the subscription) has a minimum spend of £25. If you buy an item at the same time as the subscription box, we can combine the two into one package and shipping will be free.

Do you ship to anywhere in the world?

Shipping costs for our subscription boxes cost:
£2.50 to EU addresses
£7 to the rest of world
Please note that shipping for subscription boxes internationally is different to the cost of shipping individual items in our online shop. This is because we subsidise part of the cost to make it as cheap as possible for our subscribers.

When should I expect my box to arrive?

For UK subscribers to our recurring subscription, you should expect your box 2-5 days after receiving our 'shipped' notification. 
International customers can expect to receive their box 5-7 business days after receiving their 'shipped' notification.

Who delivers The Personal Barber boxes?

We ship all boxes via Royal Mail 2nd class

My box hasn't shown up yet, what do I do?

We will try to track down your parcel and send a replacement if required.
For International customers: Royal Mail requires us to wait a full 30 days before they'll consider a parcel lost, but please get in touch if it's been 2 weeks since your shipped notification and we can do our best to chase them up.

Can I skip a box or cancel my subscription?

Of course! If you are not completely satisfied with The Personal Barber, or maybe you want to grow a beard for a bit, you can cancel at any time from your account page. If you are perhaps going on holiday or simply want to take a break from shaving you can click the "skip a box" button (also on your account page).
Please note, once a renewal payment has been taken, your subscription box goes into packing and processing for the next day and cannot be cancelled. But don't worry, we give you plenty of time to cancel before renewing so you're never caught short.

Do you send out a reminder of renewal?

Yes! We send out a reminder email, notifying you of your next payment and box, 5 days before it is processed.
