Now then I am rather sorry to admit that, yes, when it comes to shaving cream I’m rather pedestrian.
Indeed, it’s highly embarrassing now that I’m forced to think about it: My whole shaving routine is … well, routine. Boring. It’s been the same for years. Now and again someone will give me something for Christmas that I’ll take a brief look at.
For the most part, I’ve stuck with Gillette‘s razors and shaving foam. I know. I know. I should look further afield. I think I owe it to myself to have a look around.
Which brings me to The Bluebeard’s Revenge. The stand out product from their range is reportedly their shaving cream. It’s paraben free (paraben is typically bad news), premium quality, with ingredients including Decelerine that specifically combats tough stubble and the array of frequent shaving problems (i.e. razor rash, burn and bumps).
There’s a science bit too: Decelerine actually helps reduce the “Desperate Dan” look. Have a read of the detail here. Suffice to say that after 60 days use, you should notice a substantial reduction in hair length and density.
There is no excuse nowadays to turn up at work looking like someone’s taken a carving knife to your chin. And I have to say, dressed in a pinstripe but looking like a Desperate Dan arse is quite annoying. Often I get to 5pm and despite having a wet shave that morning, I’ll look as if I could certainly use another one.
The Bluebeard’s Revenge (“the ultimate shaving experience for real men”) looks rather good. I have to say, after a few minutes perusing the company’s website, I really do like their attitude. Witness, for example, the “Warning, this is not for the bumfluff brigade” page. Love it.
The company offers a whole range of shaving equipment, creams and balms. I have to say I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to try out the Scimitar yet though. You can also buy online directly from their site.
I’m going to see if I can check some out and I’ll let you know how I get on.
