Unless you frequent five-star hotels, you know that the toiletries found at most overnight inns, B&Bs, and motels can leave a lot to be desired. With a rich face wash, super slick shaving oil, sturdy shaving cream, and cooling aftershave, this travel-friendly kit will prevent any late-night runs to the nearest drugstore. Heck, you may even want to extend your stay.
Got these for a few people for Christmas. They seemed to really enjoy trying new products. Also liked that it has certain products for each step of the face while shaving. Good gift for a guy.
I travel quite a bit on business and it served me well in a pinch. The shave oil was good quality. Maybe include a good disposable razor.
I have been using other non-can products and have been pleased with their results. My first foray into the non-supermarket shaving cream was the sample in my May Birchbox. The shave from that sample was so nice, I went out and purchased a badger and have not looked back.
I had a busy summer of traveling planned, so I tried "Greatest Shave Ever" due its convenient size and no need for a separate brush. What I got was the absolute smoothest shave ever...
The face wash is nice with a pleasant scent. The oil (which is what I think makes this shave so smooth) is nice as well. But, the bottle it comes in leaks during travel, so wrap it separately in plastic. I believe it has a little topical anesthetic in it (it left my lips a little numb), so no coffee immediately after shaving!
As the bottle says, shave cream does not lather too much. I did try using my badger brush, but did not get any significant lather. While I like a good lather, I don't think it matters all that much. I believe it's the oil that makes the difference here anyway.
The aftershave is a nice touch, too.
All-in-all, this is the smoothest shave I've ever had. The shave oil bottle could be better designed, though, to prevent leakage.
Since I'm using this as a kit, I don't think I can rate the products separately. I rate this kit 5 stars.
