What is The Personal Barber Shaving Club?
The Personal Barber is the curated shaving subscription that wants to turn your daily chore into a satisfying experience to look forward to.
We passionately believe that making the switch to a single-blade razor will change your whole outlook on shaving. Not only is it kinder on your skin so you can achieve a close shave without razor burn or rash, but there’s something very satisfying about using a single-blade that just isn’t felt from a modern, plastic, multi-blade razor.
That’s why we created our shaving club where you’ll be learning the art of the classic wet shave whilst getting to try a range of fantastic products to bring life to your morning routine. Every 6 weeks, we curate a selection of only the finest wet shaving gear from all over the world, introducing you to the lesser known brands and small businesses that you don’t see in the supermarkets.
Make the switch to one of our single blade razors (included in your first box) and find out exactly what you’ve been missing:
- Warm scented lathers and effortlessly close shaves.
- Suitable for sensitive skin. Eliminate irritation and say goodbye to shaving rash!
- Artisan soaps/creams, post-shave balms, colognes and more. Every kit is different so you’re never bored.
- A clean conscience, no more plastic cartridges. Our blades are 100% recyclable.
Pre-shave box – Post-shave box – Extra-care box
Our latest kit is the “Extra-care box” which will be going out to renewing Discovery box subscribers between November 16th – December 31st. With this kit we usually feature products that aren’t usually associated with shaving but provide the extra piece of the male grooming puzzle such as a top quality moisturiser or serum.
We also have a smaller sized box, called the Essentials box, that features just the latest picked shaving soap/cream and a restock of 10 DE razor blades. This is for members that want to try new soaps and creams but would rather pick their own extra products. You can add any additional items to your Essentials Box without incurring extra postage fees.

TPB Clary Sage & Frankincense Shaving Cream RRP £9.95
We are thrilled to introduce our latest addition to the shaving cream collection: Clary Sage & Frankincense. This luxurious cream is handmade in small batches by our artisan soapmaker in East England using only the finest vegan ingredients and without any parabens.
It has been carefully formulated to provide a smooth and effortless shave. The high-quality coconut oils and glycerin in this formula work together to create a rich lather that helps reduce irritation and leave your skin feeling soft, moisturised and comfortable all day.
Made with Clary Sage & Frankincense essential oils to offer a sensory experience like no other, elevating the shaving ritual with a harmonious blend of earthy and aromatic tones. The clary sage brings a refreshing, herbaceous essence that invigorates the senses, while the rich and resinous scent of frankincense adds depth and sophistication.
Clary sage essential oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory, making it perfect for use in your shaving routine as it has the ability to heal and soothe skin. It is also reputed to have balancing properties that can help regulate the natural oil production of the skin, making it a great choice for individuals with oily or combination skin types.
On the other hand, frankincense essential oil is highly valued for its rejuvenating and toning effects on the skin. It can help improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin, promoting a more youthful and radiant complexion. Studies have also shown it has effective wound healing properties.
The scent is designed to be enjoyed only during your shave. It’s a rinse-off product so the scent doesn’t linger long and therefore won’t interfere with your choice of aftershave.
To use: Take a small almond-sized dollop of shaving cream with a dry finger and, using a slightly damp brush, work up your lather in either a bowl, your hand, or directly on your face. This is a thirsty cream so you can be quite generous with the drops of water to build up a thick lather. But try not to let water into the cream tub as it will make it go mushy and reduce its longevity.
