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 destined for landfill. Our blades are 100% recyclable.

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

Our latest kit in the Discovery Box subscription is the “Pre-Shave Box” which will be going out to renewing subscribers between May 16th – June 30th. With this kit we usually feature a product that’s applied before your shave begins, such as a pre-shave oil, designed to prep your beard before you slap a lather on and start shaving. We also include a face wash or scrub to cleanse your skin and hairs ready for a close shave.

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.

Neroli and Bergamot Shaving Cream tin from The Personal Barber Shaving Club

TPB Neroli & Bergamot Shaving Cream RRP £9.95

We're excited to present our newest addition to the shaving cream lineup: Neroli & Bergamot. Handcrafted in small batches by our skilled artisan soapmaker in East England, this luxurious cream features a blend of premium vegan ingredients, meticulously chosen for their quality, and is completely free from parabens.

Designed to deliver a smooth and effortless shave, this cream combines high-quality coconut oils and glycerin to create a lavish lather that minimizes irritation and leaves your skin feeling supremely soft, hydrated, and comfortable all day long.

Infused with the captivating scents of Neroli & Bergamot essential oils, this shaving cream offers a sensory journey like no other, enhancing the shaving experience with a harmonious fusion of vibrant and citrusy notes. The uplifting essence of neroli invigorates the senses with its floral and citrus undertones, while the zesty aroma of bergamot adds freshness and brightness.

Neroli essential oil boasts powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making it an ideal addition to your shaving routine as it soothes and heals the skin. It's also known for its balancing effects, helping to regulate natural oil production, particularly beneficial for those with oily or combination skin types.

Meanwhile, bergamot essential oil is prized for its rejuvenating and toning benefits, promoting improved skin texture and a radiant complexion. Scientific studies have demonstrated its efficacy in wound healing, further enhancing its skincare credentials.

The fragrance is designed to accompany you through the shaving process, fading away once rinsed off, ensuring it doesn't linger to 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 Oilvate, Sodium Oilvate, Potassium castrotate, Sodium castrotate,Glycerol, Salvia sclarea oil, Boswellia carterii oil,Limonene, Linalool, linalyl acetate.

Lemon and Tea Tree Pre-Shave Oil Rectangular Bottle From The Personal Barber Shaving Club

The Personal Barber Lemon & Tea Tree Ultimate Pre-Shave Oil RRP £14.95

We are thrilled to introduce the latest addition to our esteemed pre-shave oil collection: the captivating Lemon & Tea Tree scent, meticulously crafted right here at TPB HQ.

Incorporating a pre-shave oil into your grooming regimen can work wonders, especially for those with sensitive skin. By delicately softening your beard and priming your skin, it adds an extra layer of defense, ensuring a consistently comfortable shaving experience.

What sets our pre-shave oil apart? Unlike many others on the market, ours is meticulously crafted from the finest cold-pressed oils, preserving every drop of their skin-nourishing benefits.

Why does cold-pressed matter, you may ask? Unlike conventional methods that rely on heat and solvents to extract oils, cold-pressing maintains the integrity of fatty acids and plant-specific compounds, crucial for their nutritional, healing, and antioxidant properties.

Our unique formula highlights oils selected for their anti-inflammatory properties, making them perfect for shaving routines. Moreover, they score remarkably low on the comedogenic scale, making them suitable for all skin types, including oily, without clogging pores or causing breakouts. These oils are lightweight and swiftly absorb, leaving no greasy residue behind.

Comprised of a distinctive blend of cold-pressed blackcurrant seed oil, jojoba seed oil, hemp seed oil, safflower seed oil, and lightly refined watermelon seed oil.

Infused with tea tree essential oil, renowned for its potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities, providing a soothing post-shave experience.

The invigorating aroma of lemon essential oil harmoniously intertwines with tea tree, adding an uplifting zest as well as antiseptic and astringent properties to your shaving routine.

Featuring an effortless flow dropper—no shaking required. Simply invert the bottle, and the oil gracefully pours out after a couple of seconds.

To use: A little goes a long way. Massage 4-5 drops of pre-shave oil into a freshly cleansed beard/stubble, apply your shaving lather directly on top and then shave. If your skin feels greasy afterwards, you have used too much oil. Adjust for next time.

Ingredients: Ribes Nigrum Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil*, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil*, Citrullus Lanatus Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius Seed Oil*, Tocopherol, Parfum, Limonene, Citral

*Cold-pressed oil

The BIC Chrome Platinums, made in Greece, are one of the sharpest blades in existence, making them great for thick beards, however they’re somewhat less forgiving so caution is advised.
