Smells Horrible
Purchased

I recently purchased this shave kit and was literally repulsed by the smell of the brush. I literally gagged and so did my wife, forcing me to get back in the shower and wash off the funk. I don't know what the issue was but I was shocked and confused. The oil and balm were okay but didn't really have any fragrance like I thought they would. Hopefully it was just a bad box or something..............

Beau says it smells funny
Purchased

He likes the brush, but I think it's a bit scratchy. He doesn't like the unscented smell.. I agree with that--it does smell off! The cream doesn't foam up as much as we'd like also.

Great way to dip your toe into high end shaving.

I started with this starter kit and a middle of the road safety razor my facial hair grows on the slower side so the starter kit lasted me a bit. Great products and the brush will last you a good amount of time. Months later and mine still hasn't shown any signs of fading or wear.

Good starter kit
Purchased

I purchased this kit for my husband to use until I can order the full sized unscented one, which has been sold out. He likes all of the products and uses them daily. It's a nice size for travel.

Gift for my son
Purchased

The unscented version was purchased as a gift for my younger son. I like the straight-forward instructions. It's a great gift at a great value.

Husband loves this!

I got this for my husband and he loves it. I think it makes his skin feel nice and smooth. Nice to touch!! I got him the sandalwood and he has sensitive skin and he did fine with it.

Its not bad but its not great, the pre shave oil is probably the best but they rest is pretty average.

Meh
Purchased

I would say that I'm partially to blame for this so-so review, as I should have focused more on the term STARTER KIT. Sample kit would be a more accurate term. I would categorize all of the products, including the brush as slightly larger than a sample size. Then again, you do get what you pay for and $25 is not a bad price for all four. As far as functionality goes, the products work as advertised. However, I ordered the Sandalwood scent and would recommend against it. It just didn't smell very good. I've purchased other products that were Sandalwood scented and they smell much better than these. I would suggest going with the unscented version.

Shaving doesn't hurt anymore
Purchased

My husband hates shaving and had made it a habit to always use an electric razor and hope for the best. His supervisor made a comment about his haphazad shaving results so I started looking for a solution for him. I saw great reviews on the Art of Shaving line so I decided to give it a try. He LOVES this product. He said it no longer hurts to shave and he has a close nice shave and softer skin!! Definitely will continue purchasing this product for him.
