  2. Three Reasons Why You Should Use A Safety Razor

    There are three main reasons why you should shave with a safety razor as opposed to a cartridge razor.

    1). It’s better for your skin
    2). It’s better for the environment
    3). It’s cheaper than shaving with cartridge blades

    Let’s look at these three points in more detail.

    It’s better for your skin. Today’s modern razors and electric shavers are no match for a double-edged safety razor. This is due to the very design of modern cartridge razors. The blades in a multi-blade cartridge are each positioned to gradually extend toward your beard, unlike a safety razor.

  3. Shave Daily With No Post-Shave Problems

    Men with skin problems often avoid shaving for days or even weeks on end and when they do eventually shave, they suffer from redness, itchiness, razor bumps and cuts.

    First things first, no matter which type of razor you use -

    • Always shave with a sharp blade, the sharper the better.
    • Always shave on top of a rich, creamy, protective lather.
    • Shave with a light touch
    • Shave in the direction your bristles grow (until your skin problems are resolved).
    • After shaving moisturise and soothe your skin with an aftershave balm.

  4. A review of the Feather DER-A Butterfly Doors, Adjustable Safety Razor

    The launch of the Feather DER-A was a bolt from the blue, the first I knew about it was when the agent sent me a sample in the post. I immediately ordered 25 as I knew there would be initial interest. I was right, we sold 10 after we featured the razor in an email to our customers and another 7 have since sold probably after seeing a Facebook post of ours.

    Find out just how good this razor is in Brian's latest blog post.

  7. Present Buying? Shaving Brush Buying Guide

    You may think it’s easy to buy a shaving brush, I guess it is, look shaving brushes up on Google, click and pay, hey presto brush bought. But, is it the right brush? Did you pay too much?
