Pre-shave box – Post-shave box – Extra-care box
Our latest kit is the “Post-shave box” which will be going out to renewing subscribers between August 16th - September 30th. On top of a new shaving soap and restock of blades, this kit always features a post-shave balm to calm the skin after shaving and promote the healing process so it feels comfortable all day long. We also usually showcase a solid cologne in this kit which we believe is one of the most exciting new products that every gentleman must try.
Join our shaving club here before September 30th to get this kit (only whilst stocks last).

Kosimetik Gentlemen Shave Soap RRP €14
Kosimetik Gentlemen is a male grooming brand from Barcelona, Spain, that specialises in creating high quality formulas that offer maximum efficiency, minimal environmental impact and use the best natural ingredients.
Their shave soap has been made using traditional saponification methods to create a bar that is very easy to lather up and leaves the skin feeling clean and nourished. It Uses Kukui nut oil for its rich moisturising fats that condition the skin after a shave whilst lemon, bergamot and petitgrain impart antiseptic properties that refresh as well as give the soap its distinct fragrance.
It’s a very light and fluffy lather compared to other soaps we’ve featured. Don’t worry if it dissipates midway through your shave. The added glycerin leaves a layer of protection and slip for the blade to glide over your skin, and it’s so voluminous you can just keep reapplying as you go with no fear of running out. Try not to use too much water with this soap and aim for a thick lather instead.
To use: With a slightly damp shaving brush, work the soap for 10-15 seconds until heavily loaded and start building your lather as normal, being careful not to add more than a drop of water at a time. Keep reapplying as needed.
Ingredients: Glycerin, Aqua, Sorbitol, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Oleate, Aleurites Moluccanus Seed Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Peel Oil Expressed, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Oil, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Pentasodium Pentetate, Tetrsodium Etidronate, Linalool, Geraniol, Citral, Limonene/Dipentene.
Gimmicks London Aftershave Serum RRP £16
Gimmicks London are an exciting brand from the capital that strive to create the very best in natural and organic skincare. By only using the finest, freshest, natural ingredients from reputable sources, and making each small batch by hand, you can rest assured harsh chemicals won’t be coming in contact with your skin.
Their aftershave serum is no exception. Designed to soothe your skin immediately after shaving, to encourage repair as well as moisturise. Made with Camellia seed oil (green tea) for its light texture and skin conditioning properties as well as soothing organic lavender and cooling peppermint oil that combine to give it a relaxing scent to start your day.
A little goes a very long way when it comes to an oil based balm. Only press the pump enough to get the amount of serum you need (not all the way down). You can adjust the amount of serum depending on skin type: dry skin requires a bit more, oily skin less. Ensuring your skin is damp when applying the serum will make it go further so you can use a smaller amount effectively.
To use: Immediately after shaving, massage a drop of serum into still damp skin and let air dry.
Ingredients: Camellia Kissi (Camellia) Seed Oil, Nigella Sativa (Black Seed) Seed Oil, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Helianthus Anuus Seed Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Oil, Geraniol, Linalool, Limonene.
Enliven Naturals Board Room Solid Cologne RRP £15
Enliven Naturals are a boutique brand of handmade skincare and fragrances. If you’ve not used a solid cologne before, it’s an alcohol-free and water-free form of aftershave that is incredibly portable and discreet to apply. You can easily carry it with you and reapply as needed, we suggest every 4 hours or so.
Made from coconut oil, essential oils, shea butter, vitamin e and jojoba oil means it won’t dry out your skin but in fact keep it moisturised as well as smelling great.
The Board Room scent has been blended to inspire confidence and power. A rich layered smell of musk, bourbon, vanilla, tobacco, caramel, leather, pepper and sandalwood. Remember with fragrances that they develop over time and mix with your natural musk so don’t judge it directly from the tin. It starts off quite sweet but you’ll notice the depth of the cologne after it’s been on your skin for a few minutes and the base notes start to come through.
To use: Gently rub your finger over the balm and then apply to your pulse points such as your wrist, neck and behind your ears. We use the pulse points because they heat up the cologne, making it last longer. Want a stronger scent? Use the back of your nail to scrape off a larger quantity. The more you use, the stronger it will be.
Ingredients: Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil, Organic Beeswax, Fragrance Oils
