Products designed to take the monotony out of your shave. The scrub refreshes you. The brush and cream lather and moisturize. We even took the sting out of the post- shave balm. All you need is something to shave with.
- Apply some scrub on your face. Rub gently for 1-2 minutes and spread over the area to be shaved. Wash off with lukewarm water.
- Soak your brush in warm water. Take some cream in your hand, and use the brush to lather it with circular motions.
- Ensure the area to be shaved is covered in a generous amount of lather. Shave.
- Wash your face with cold water and apply balm on the shaved area.
My Husband’s Experience- I was searching the web for an ideal gift for my hubby and landed on The Bombay Shaving Company website which was started by a group of people to make the shaving ritual better and interesting. There are different options for gifting that you can choose from the website. I chose the 3 step regime gift set. It contains the following items:
- Pre-Shave Scrub
- Shaving Cream
- Post-Shave Balm
- Shaving brush
- Small Towel
Let’s discuss this shaving ritual step by step- The first thing to be used is the Pre-Shave scrub which is the most interesting of all. It’s a 100 gm dark grey tube with a flip open cap. Men usually do not give time to scrubbing their skin as much we women do. The main thing it does is exfoliation and cleansing. It contains black sand that exfoliates, Vitamin E that enriches and Aloe Vera extracts that soothe skin, releasing trapped hair in the process. My husband says it reduces the shaving time by softening the hair and calming the skin. This is his favorite product out of all.
The shaving brush is very good too. It’s made of imitation badger hair and the bristles are really soft and create lots of lather. The brush is dark grey in color and looks classy. The shaving cream comes in a white tube with cyan blue flip open cap. It lathers really well as claimed by the company. Not only this it is very moisturizing in nature. The shaving cream has a good fragrance that lingers on for a while and overall it leads to a great shaving experience. An alcohol-free, post-shave cooling balm that is cyan blue in color with a white flip open cap is another awesome product from this range. It’s like a after shave but in a cream form that soothes and repairs the skin using essential oils. It does not sting or burn like regular after shave. It tightens the pores and leaves the skin soothed and calm.Last but not the least there is a small white towel with company’s name embroidered on it. It’s cute and completes the set. So, overall a great buy and my husband is very happy using it. Only thing I felt is the use of alcohol and mineral oil in the pre-shave scrub is a put off. If they could work on making their products from natural ingredients and lesser chemicals it would be awesome.
- Attractive packaging.
- Budget Friendly.
- Good quality products.
- All products smell awesome.
- Shaving cream lathers well.
- Very less quantity required for each use.
- Great as a gifting option.
- The entire regime leaves you feeling pampered and refreshed.
- Available online only.
- The scrub contains alcohol and mineral oil.
That’s all from my end; see you in my next review 🙂
