A few years ago a friend in the USA gave me a shaving kit for my birthday.

I’m the kind of person who finds electric shavers utterly useless. So I’ve always almost wet shaved since I started to shave.

All that time since the late 1980’s I’ve used shaving foam from a aerosol. However this shaving kit had a shaving brush and shaving soap.

What a revelation this was!

Since using the shaving soap with a brush I’ve had a much better shaving experience. Hardly ever do I get any nicks like I used to with the shaving foam. I love the smell of the soap and it lasts many times longer than a can of foam.

Today I bought shaving soap from Boots for £3.49 and it will easily last me 3 months.
