IN A WORLD OF MORE AND MORE INNOVATIONS, ONE WHICH TURNS A DAILY CHORE INTO A DAILY TREAT IS SURE TO BRING A LITTLE SUNSHINE INTO OUR LIVES. THE PERSONAL BARBER IS A CONCEPT WHICH DOES JUST THAT.
Men who decide against growing a beard, either because of personal taste, fear of small animal infestations, or a (bush) fire, have to start the day with a shave. Wet shaves (ask the experts) give a smoother, longer lasting shave, and The Personal Barber have launched a scheme to provide the best shaving experience.
The concept is very simple. You pay a monthly fee and in return each month you receive an array of shaving goodies. The type of merchandise you receive will not be found in Boots or Superdrug. We were sent the first box, which is sent to new subscribers. This included a classic safety razor with blades, a luxury shaving brush, a choice of shaving creams, and step by step instructions on how to get the best shave. With each box sent, post free, every month, subscribers get to try new soaps with different smells and textures as well as oils, balms, alums and colognes. Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.
We recommend giving it a try. It’s not often that having a close shave can be such a pleasant experience.
