The Personal Barber – Shaving Luxury


I smell awesome.  I mean, next-level luxurious have-I-just-walked-past-George-Clooney awesome.

My face is also incredibly smooth. Both of these things are down to those grooming wizards at The Personal Barber. If those guys use their own products regularly, then they must always smell magnificent.

Us guys want to smell and feel good. We also want our smells to be complex, deep and rich. We don’t want to be stinking of the extra-sweet supermarket own-brand deodorants. Give us mature scents.

Many men have moved on from the environmentally unfriendly disposable razors (who is still buying those?) and are using the far superior safety razors like men of yore. We should be able to enjoy smoother, closer shaves from shaving creams whipped up ourselves, and know that we’re saving landfill from those horrible little plastic orange bic things.

We also want to take care of our faces. After-shave balms come in all varieties nowadays, such is the demand for quality male skin care products. And they smell good too.

Don’t we all deserve to have even just a small bit of pampering or luxury? We bloody deserve it.

The Personal Barber

The Personal Barber are a company providing something that I absolutely wanted. Luxury shaving goods at a pretty basic price. What’s better is that they post it to your door.

So you won’t be getting disposable or electric razors from The Personal Barber. We’re talking proper, traditional wet shaves with a safety razor like your grandad used to do. I learned a few years back that 3, 4 or even 5 blades in a razor are a horrendous gimmick. All they do is increase the chance of irritation by 3, 4 or even 5 times. Have you seen the blades on those multi-blade razors? They’re not blades! They’re tiny strips of metal in a horrible plastic casing. Don’t men deserve something a bit more substantial, like a solid, metal safety razor with a single, sharp, quality blade? Why yes, they do.

Shaving with a safety razor is a culture shift, sure. But it’s an amazing one which will make you wonder why you didn’t start earlier. There are few more aromatic treats in grooming than mixing up your own shaving foam. Two passes with the blade, then your post-shave product to both soothe the skin and make yourself smell incredible, and you’re done. That’s the best a man can get – not a disposable (and therefore unecologically friendly) plastic sham. This is what the The Personal Barber can do for you.

Your first subscription comes with a whole bunch of quality goodies including your own safety razor. And a shaving brush t0o. Congratulations. You’re now shaving like a grown-up.

Discovery Box

Subsequent boxes contain a mix of new blades, balm, fragrances and shaving cream. This is the latest box on offer from The Personal Barber.

The Personal Barber

The Ben Macdui balm from Bart’s Balm soothes and cools after a shave. It also has rosemary and sandalwood (one of the favourite smells) and contains a special blend of Argan Oil, Coconut Oil and Vitamin E. All that stuff is great for even the most sensitive skins.

As with all their shaving soaps and creams, TPB’s Nutcracker seasonal soap lathers up a treat providing a luxurious shave. Handmade in Scotland, vegan-friendly, and definitely has a season fragrance with cinnamon, citrus, nutmeg and sandalwood aromas. Good enough to eat. (Don’t eat it. It’s shaving cream.)

 

This is the second time I’ve had solid cologne and it’s stunning. Rub your finger along the top of the compact tin and apply where desired. It takes a little getting used to but a little goes a long way. Again, it has cedarwood, and it’s incredible. I’ve never smelt so good.

The Personal Barber

Each subscription box contains fresh blades. They’re essential. You can’t hide from a blunt blade. The blades are really the star of the show. A fresh blade will provide a shave unlike anything you’ve had before. Just today, a single blade removed a full beard without any difficulty or tugging at all. Smooth, quick and pain-free.

The Personal Barber

Smooth as a baby’s whatnot. A double pass with a single blade will leave you as fresh as my young face in the last pic above. I have quite a heavy growth but even a few hours after the shave, it’s still all smooth.

I’m going to let you into a bloke secret. Ready?

This is the gift that the men in your life will really want for Christmas.

The subscription service will send you out a box like this every six weeks. The discovery boxes are £24.95 each. Look at the savings – it’s crazy how much money you save. The first box contains a brush and razor which is worth £27.50 on it’s own. You’d be bonkers not to.

If there’s a fella that you think deserves to have a great shaving experience and smell like a God, this is THE gift for this Christmas.

    When he was young my son was obsessed with Star Trek – and in particular the 3-dimensional chess board as he loved chess. His face when he unwrapped it on Christmas morning was absolutely wonderful to see.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever made someone say this is the best gift… I know that Christmas 2020 my other half stayed with me and my kids and he said that was his best Christmas ever so that kinda made me smile that we’d made him properly part of the family 🙂
