What is The Personal Barber Shaving Club?

The Personal Barber is the curated shaving subscription that wants to turn your daily chore into a satisfying experience to look forward to.

We passionately believe that making the switch to a single-blade razor will change your whole outlook on shaving. Not only is it kinder on your skin so you can achieve a close shave without razor burn or rash, but there’s something very satisfying about using a single-blade that just isn’t felt from a modern, plastic, multi-blade razor.

That’s why we created our shaving club where you’ll be learning the art of the classic wet shave whilst getting to try a range of fantastic products to bring life to your morning routine. Every 6 weeks, we curate a selection of only the finest wet shaving gear from all over the world, introducing you to the lesser known brands and small businesses that you don’t see in the supermarkets.

Make the switch to one of our single blade razors (included in your first box) and find out exactly what you’ve been missing:

  • Warm scented lathers and effortlessly close shaves.
  • Suitable for sensitive skin. Eliminate irritation and say goodbye to shaving rash!
  • Artisan soaps/creams, post-shave balms, colognes and more. Every kit is different so you’re never bored.
  • A clean conscience, no more plastic cartridges. Our blades are 100% recyclable.

Pre-shave box – Post-shave box – Extra-care box

Our latest kit is the “Extra-care box” which will be going out to renewing Discovery box subscribers between April 1st – May 15th. With this kit we usually feature products that aren’t usually associated with shaving but provide the extra piece of the male grooming puzzle such as a top quality moisturiser, serum or eye cream.

We also have a smaller sized box, called the Essentials box, that features just the latest picked shaving soap/cream and a restock of 10 DE razor blades. This is for members that want to try new soaps and creams but would rather pick their own extra products. You can add any additional items to your Essentials Box without incurring extra postage fees.

Juniper and Chamomile Shaving Cream tin on a white background

Juniper & Chamomile Shaving Cream RRP £9.95

We are thrilled to introduce our latest addition to the shaving cream collection: Juniper & Chamomile. This luxurious cream is handmade in small batches by our artisan soapmaker in East England using only the finest vegan ingredients and without any parabens.

It has been carefully formulated to provide a smooth and effortless shave. The high-quality coconut oils and glycerin in this formula work together to create a rich lather that helps reduce irritation and leave your skin feeling soft, moisturised and comfortable all day.

Crafted with meticulous care, this luxurious concoction tantalizes with the crisp, invigorating essence of juniper, while soothing waves of chamomile gently caress your skin. As you lather up, the aromatic symphony envelops you, transforming your daily shave into a sensory escape to serene meadows and fragrant forests. Elevate your grooming ritual with our juniper and chamomile-infused shaving cream, where every glide of the blade becomes a moment of tranquil indulgence.

The scent is designed to be enjoyed only during your shave. It’s a rinse-off product so the scent doesn’t linger long and therefore won’t interfere with your choice of aftershave.

To use: Take a small almond-sized dollop of shaving cream with a dry finger and, using a slightly damp brush, work up your lather in either a bowl, your hand, or directly on your face. This is a thirsty cream so you can be quite generous with the drops of water to build up a thick lather. But try not to let water into the cream tub as it will make it go mushy and reduce its longevity.

Ingredients: Aqua, Stearic acid, Potassium cocoate, Sodium cocoate,Potassium Olivate, Sodium Olivate, Potassium castorate, Sodium castorate,Glycerol, Salvia sclarea oil, Boswellia carterii oil,Limonene, Linalool, linalyl acetate.

Skin Chemist Wrinkle Killer Eye Serum for men on a white background with product box

Skin Chemists Wrinkle Killer Men’s Eye Serum RRP £79

We’re excited to be doing a double feature of Skin Chemists premium men’s skincare products in this month’s box!

Why is it important to use an eye serum? The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face, making it prone to issues like dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. Regular moisturiser can be too heavy or contain ingredients that are too harsh for this sensitive area, potentially causing irritation. A dedicated eye serum is specifically formulated to address these concerns, providing targeted treatment for the delicate eye area.

Men's Eye Serum is a powerful formula that combines natural ingredients like Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder and Sodium Hyaluronate to hydrate and plump the delicate skin around the eyes. This clean beauty serum smooths and brightens the skin, while also improving the texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Experience a healthier and more youthful-looking eye area with this innovative and effective skincare product.

To use: To be applied between cleansing and moisturising. After shaving and rinsing, dispense toner into the palm of your hand and then gently press into your face and neck. No need to wash off. Leave to air-dry and then continue with your next product such as balm or moisturiser.

Ingredients: Aqua (water), Carbomer Glycerin, Benzyl Alcohol, Allantoin, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide, Parfum (fragrance), Disodium EDTA, Dehydroacetic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice Powder, Trihydroxystearin, Quartz Powder, Sodium Benzoate, Xantham Gum, Lactic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Bee Venom, Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene
