Just a quick break to talk about something for the guys today. And just in time for Valentine’s Day if you are still on the hunt for something for your guy. I had dad try out another Art of Shaving Kit and wanted to share some of his thoughts (Ocean Kelp reviewed here).
These kits contain full-size containers of the following, designed for the four “Elements” of shaving:
- Pre-Shave Gel
- Shaving Cream
- Pure Badger Black Shaving Brush
- After-Shave Lotion
This time around, he tested the Lavender Kit. I was a little hesitant to ask him to try something with such a feminine sounding fragrance. But he was game to give it a whirl. Turns out there was nothing to fear because the Lavender is “great with a manly-man aroma.” Good to know!
Dad points out the experience is like taking shaving to the next level. The “Elements” all add to comfort and performance. The Pre-Shave Gel “made the razor glide right over skin instead of how the razor usually lightly drags.” The Shaving Cream is smoother and more luxurious than his beloved drugstore brand. While I don’t think he uses the Badger Brush every day, it is a little classy addition. Last, he particularly appreciated the After-Shave Lotion. “It has been so dry here that I have added moisturizer to my face during the day on many days. Not today – I really think that the Art of Shaving kept me comfortable all day.”
So, ladies… there you go. It has the seal of approval. And I think I got Dad hooked 🙂
