Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades Review Caulfield's Counter Men's Grooming Male Skincare

Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Amazon, West Coast Shaving and Grooming Lounge.
Scent: N/A
I like: the quality of the blades.  Gives you a close shave with minimal irritation (as long as you change the blade out every 3-5 shaves).  Great value.
Not a fan of: nothing.

Different blades work well with different people.  While the Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades worked very well with my skin and beard, they might not be as effective for others.  If you’re new to wet shaving, buy a sample pack of various blades and test them to see which ones give you the smoothest shaves with minimal cuts and irritation.  I used the Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades with my old school Gillette Tech razor made decades ago.  It was a match made in shave heaven.  These fine Astra blades balanced out my relatively heavy Gillette Tech razor nicely.  All I had to do was guide the razor across the surface of my skin – no pressure was necessary.  The best thing about the Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades is the price.  If you’re switching from disposable cartridge razors, you will notice the savings immediately.  Thanks to all of you who suggested I switch to wet shaving.  I am converted.

Lucky Tiger Face Scrub Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Lucky Tiger, Amazon, & Swanson Vitamins.
Scent: citrus with a hint of honey.
I Like: the subtle scent.  Effectively gets rid of dead skin and debris.  Great for before shaving
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate and BHT ingredients.

Gently exfoliating once or twice a week can help keep your complexion clear.  Face scrubs lift debris and dead skin cells that may be trapped in pores.  Lucky Tiger Face Scrub works particularly well for me before I shave.  The scent is a pleasant, uplifting blend of citrus and honey.  It contains some great natural ingredients including jojoba oil, green tea, hibiscus, borage oil, and honey.  Those with sensitive skin take note: the product’s exfoliating bits are not very fine, so you have to be extra gentle when scrubbing your skin.

Many guys don’t like to spend the time to shop for skin care.  Even I sometimes get exhausted just trying to figure out what grooming products to try next.  Beta Naturals All-In-One Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer was developed to help men simplify their shaving routines.  It’s basically a shaving oil and an aftershave balm/moisturizer in one convenient all-natural product.  It provides a nice glide for your razor while you shave and helps your skin recover post-shave.   The Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer has a very light consistency and absorbs well into the skin.  It won’t clog pores or razors.  Oils of argan, jojoba, and grapeseed nourish and soothe while peppermint and rosemary refresh and cool.  Lavender (sensitive skin) and Earl Grey (all skin types) options are also available.  If you want to streamline your grooming routine while minimizing bumps and razor burn, try Beta Naturals All-In-One Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer.  It could change the way you shave.

The Real Shaving Company Shave Gel ingredients list review sensitive skin Caulfield's Counter metrosexual men's grooming male skincare

The Real Shaving Company Sensitive Shaving Gel Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at The Real Shaving Company and Rite Aid Pharmacy.
Scent: masculine cologne-like fragrance.
I Like: the product’s clarity and thick consistency.  Great value.
Not a fan of: the strong scent.

Are you a shaving aficionado on a tight budget?  The Real Shaving Company’s Sensitive Shaving Gel is proof that you can get a quality English-made shave product for about five dollars.  What I enjoy most about this shave gel is its thickness and clarity.  The thickness provides a nice buffer to protect your skin while getting a close shave.  The clear gel allows you to see exactly what you’re shaving – ideal for those delicate, hard to reach places near the earlobes and under nose.  The aloe in the product helps to alleviate razor burn.  The cologne-like scent is quite strong, but I suppose you can’t ask for too much when you’re paying five bucks.
