The Perfect Father's Day Gift - The Personal Barber

|
Can you believe it, it's less than a month until Father's Day! I never have a clue what to get my husband or my dad, mainly because getting gifts for a man can be so difficult. They never like to give you ideas, not like subtle hints us ladies like to drop. Nope, none whatsoever. For Father's Day we normally get them some form of voucher, something personalised or the little lady likes to try and create a masterpiece to treasure forever. However, the collection of personalised items are getting a little crazy on his bedside unit. But this month I think I may have discovered a little solution to all those 'I don't know what to get you' moments in the form of a subscription box from The Personal Barber.
The Personal Barber subscription box is described as “The ultimate shaving subscription for men”. The team behind the box want to provide men with a shaving routine into an experience to look forward to, rather than a daily chore doing this by offering deliveries of razors and new hand-picked shaving products on a regular basis with free UK delivery. My husband was kindly offered an opportunity to review The Personal Barber Subscription Box for a month, which he was more than happy to do. For someone who clean shaves once a week, he thinks that this is the perfect traditional kit for creating a sleek, clean shaven look in a matter of minutes. But what makes this box even better is each month you will get a different range of products to try, what could be a better way to discover some amazing brands that you wouldn't necessarily come across, if it wasn't in this subscription box.


The first box includes a free traditional styled safety razor, blades, soap and shaving brush as step-by-step instructions for using the razor. After the first month the box contains more products including new soaps, blades (new brands every month) and pre/post shave items such as oils, balms, colognes, balms and more. The Personal Barber has got you covered for all your shaving needs. I think what makes this subscription box so great is the fact that all the equipment is beginner friendly, and the box comes with a set of detailed instruction to help make sure that you can clean shave within minimal grazes.


INSIDE THE BOX

What a great selection of products to tame the wildest of beards. Each month The Personal Barber sends  out hand-picked selection for the best shaving products available for a traditional wet shave, right to your door. Double edged razors, blades, brushes, shaving soap, creams and so much more. There is also a step by step guide to help you along your way in taming that unruly beard.

Safety Razor

The Personal Barber safety razor is perfect for everyone and even a beginner. The traditional styled safety razor has a balanced weight and had a relatively small head for maximum control which is perfect for an angled shave by maintaining a light pressure. You also get some handy replacement blades with every subscription box and to make it even more interesting the brands change every month.

Shaving Brush

Also included in the box is The Personal Barber synthetic hair shaving brush, which is ideal for whipping up a thick lather that feels comfortable on your face. I couldn't actually believe how soft this brush was, it just feels like a make-up brush. Looks great, feels great on your skin, so easy to clean and in addition it isn’t animal hair so its lasts longer and it won’t become mouldy over time.

Shaving Soap: Wickhams 1912 Vegetal Shaving Soap

The 1912 Vegetal Shaving Soap is a high quality English shaving soap from Wickham Soap Co. These handpicked ingredients compliments one another to deliver a dense gloss lather to help protective sensitive skin. The soap texture is completely different to previous ones my husband has used. It's dense but not rock hard which made it easier to lather inside the tub. My husband ran the warm water over the brush and emptied it right in to the bowl and began to lather. The scent was getting stronger but still on the light side and after a minute or two creating a great looking lather that was thick, rich and creamy.


After Shave Balm: Dapper Dan Barber Shop Classic

The perfect balm after a clean shave. This balm contains Aloe Vera, alantoine and chamomile to reduce skin irritation caused by shaving. The balm soothes and moisturises without leaving an oily trace on the skin. It can be used as a daily moisturising cream with excellent results. My husband really liked this product due to the fact that it doesn't leave a residue on his face, it's super smooth and sinks into his skin very nicely.


Fragrance: Dear Barber 'WITH CONFIDENCE' Gentlemen's Fragrance

This aromatic eau de toilette is a masculine, vintage-inspired fragrance with an invigorating fresh, spicy twist. A light top note of bergamot is given depth with hints of musk, vanilla and sandal. An intense, daring scent for the 21st century gent. I do have to say that I really loved the smell of this gentlemen's fragrance, it was very subtle and lasted all day. Some fragrances can be too overpowering, but this one is perfect and comes in a small bottle, perfect for travelling.


Final thoughts
For someone who normally uses an electric shaver, the traditional set was a little bit of a challenge at first. Instead of just simply grabbing my shaver and getting to work, the traditional shave took some preparation, patience and a bit of time. But I soon got the hang of things. For a quality shave with high end results it does require a bit more effort, but the results outweigh the time any day of the week. The Personal Barber is a unique monthly service for gentlemen, that is perfect for all your shaving needs.

So if you are struggling to get a gift for the man in your life, why not give them something a little different with this subscription box from The Personal Barber.
