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 breathe life into your morning routine. Every 6 weeks, we curate a selection of only the finest wet shaving gear and men’s skincare essentials 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 “Post-Shave Box” which will be going out to renewing subscribers between May 17th – June 30th. On top of a new shaving soap and restock of 10 blades, this kit always features a post-shave balm to help 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.

Cardamom, Gingergrass & Clove Shaving Cream from The Personal Barber. Black tin on a white backgroundTPB Cardamom, Gingergrass & Clove Shaving Cream RRP £9.95

We are thrilled to introduce our latest addition to the shaving cream collection – the Cardamom, Gingergrass, and Clove Shaving Cream! 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 and moisturized.

The combination of cardamom, gingergrass and clove creates a unique and alluring scent that soothes the senses and awakens the spirit. It starts with the spicy and warm aroma of clove, which is then followed by the sweet and earthy notes of cardamom. As the scent develops, the sharp and zesty fragrance of gingergrass becomes more prominent, creating a refreshing and invigorating experience. Each element is perfectly balanced to create a rich and complex aroma that is both elegant and masculine, making the shaving experience an indulgent treat for the senses.

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, Citric Acid, Cymbopogon Martini Sofia Herb Oil, Elettaria Cardamomum Seed Oil, Eugenia Caryophyllus Bud Oil, Eugenol, Limonene, Linalool.

Skincare Botanics are an artisan skincare company based in Cumbria. Using the highest grade natural & organic raw ingredients, they handcraft natural and organic botanical skincare and aromatherapy products. These are created to work gently and effectively with the skin and the senses using pure ingredients from nature to enrich and revive, relax and restore.

Their aftershave balm is a carefully formulated gel that combines the power of natural ingredients to soothe and protect the skin after shaving. Infused with aloe vera, witch hazel, tea tree flower water and pure peppermint essential oil, it is perfect to soothe, nourish, soften & tone skin.

Aloe vera gel is known for its hydrating and moisturising properties. It helps to alleviate any discomfort or irritation caused by shaving, whilst also promoting skin cell regeneration. Witch hazel, on the other hand, is a natural astringent that helps to tone the skin and reduce inflammation.

Tea tree flower is a powerful anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent that helps to prevent infections and promote healing. Combined with the cooling and invigorating benefits of pure peppermint essential oil, this aftershave balm provides a soothing and refreshing experience that calms the skin and leaves it feeling soft and supple.

Overall, the Skincare Botanics aftershave balm is a must-have for anyone looking to have a smooth and comfortable shaving experience. It is suitable for all skin types and is free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances, making it a natural and safe choice for daily use.

To use: Immediately after shaving, take a pea-sized dollop of balm and massage it into skin that’s still slightly damp. Follow up with a moisturiser, if you have one, to lock in moisture.

Ingredients: Organic Vegetable Glycerin (derived from coconut); Organic Witch Hazel Hydrosol, (Hamamelis Virginiana); Organic Tea Tree Floral Water, (Melaleuca Alternifolia); Aqua; Aloe Vera Leaf Powder; Polysorbate 20; Carbomer; Phenoxyethanol; Ethylhexylglycerin; Essential Oil of Peppermint, (Mentha Piperita)

Derby Extra and BIC Chrome Platinum double-edge razor blade packs on a white backgroundDerby Extra and BIC Chrome Platinum Replacement Double-Edge Blades RRP £3.90

Derby Extra are one of the most popular blades in the UK. Manufactured in Turkey, they are perfect for beginners and veterans alike. They’re on the duller end of the sharpness spectrum but still plenty sharp enough to go through any well-prepared beard and smooth enough not to be too daunting for a new wet shaver. However, they don’t tend to last as long as many other coated blades and therefore need replacing more often. Last 3-6 shaves.

On the other end of the spectrum, 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. If you’re still new to this style of razor, try the Derby Extra blades first until you’re more confident. Expect to get 3-7 shaves per blade before noticing a drop in quality. Mileage per blade varies depending on beard thickness, amount of passes taken per shave, technique and if it’s kept dry between uses.

It’s worth noting that blades, rather than going from sharp to dull, they actually tend to get sharper after the first one or two shaves before tailing off and eventually becoming too dull to use. This is thought to be down to how the blade coating comes off during the first shave and exposes the raw edge.
