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.

Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Aubrey OrganicsDrugstore.com, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Whole Foods Market.
Scent: Natural blend of pine, eucalyptus, and camphor .
I Like: that the product is made with 100% natural ingredients.  The cool, tingling feeling of the cream.  Less foam means you can see where you’re shaving.
Not a fan of: how the cream can occasionally clog the razor.

What I enjoy most about using Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream is knowing that it is made with all-natural ingredients and therefore less likely to cause major skin irritation.  The brisk, tingling sensation of the cream may not appeal to all people, but I really enjoyed it – it wakes me up in the morning and makes shaving a bit more exhilarating.  The fragrance is distinctly masculine – a natural blend of pine, eucalyptus, and camphor.  Those seeking a lot of lather should look elsewhere – this shave cream does not generate a lot of foam, but it helps provide a slick surface for your razor to glide on.
