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 breathe life into your morning routine. Every 6 weeks, we curate a selection of only the finest wet shaving gear and men’s skincare essentials 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 “Post-Shave Box” which will be going out to renewing subscribers between October 1st – November 15th. On top of a new shaving soap and restock of 10 blades, this kit always features a post-shave balm to help calm the skin after shaving and promote the healing process so it feels comfortable all day long. We also usually showcase a new solid cologne in this kit which we believe is one of the most exciting new products that every gentleman must try.

cedarwood and rosemary shaving cream tin on a white backgroundTPB Cedarwood & Rosemary Shaving Cream RRP £9.95

We are thrilled to introduce our latest addition to the shaving cream collection: Cedarwood & Rosemary! 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.

The rich, woody notes of cedarwood provide a grounding base, while the earthy, herbaceous fragrance of rosemary adds a lively touch. Together, they create a revitalising and masculine fragrance that enhances the shaving experience and sets you up for the day ahead.

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.

Ingredients: Aqua, Stearic Acid, Potassium Cocoate, Sodium Cocoate, Potassium Olivate, Sodium Olivate, Potassium Castorate, Sodium Castorate, Glycerol, Citric Acid, Cymbopogon Martini Sofia Herb Oil, Elettaria Cardamomum Seed Oil, Eugenia Caryophyllus Bud Oil, Eugenol, Limonene, Linalool.

Scottish fine soaps thistle and black pepper aftershave balm on a white backgroundScottish Fine Soaps Aftershave Balm RRP £12.50

Scottish Fine Soaps is a renowned company known for their luxurious skincare products with a touch of Scottish heritage. With a commitment to using locally sourced ingredients where possible and a focus on sustainability, their range of products offers a unique blend of indulgence and environmental responsibility

Their aftershave balm is designed to nourish and protect the skin following shaving. With its nutrient-rich, easily absorbed formula, it leaves skin feeling refreshed and revitalised. Enriched with the soothing extract of milk thistle, it helps calm any post-shave irritation and maintains the skin's natural balance.

The Thistle & Black Pepper scent is a perfect blend of rich woodiness, complemented by hints of amber, citrus, herbs, and invigorating sea buckthorn.

To use: Immediately after shaving, take a pea-sized dollop of balm and massage it into skin that’s still slightly damp. Follow up with a moisturiser, if you have one, to lock in moisture.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-20 Stearate, Alcohol Denat, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Carbomer, Parfum (Fragrance), Aminomethyl Propanol, Menthol, Allantoin, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric acid, Ascorbic acid, Citronellol, Coumarin.

The Personal Barber Samurai Solid Cologne Tin on a white backgroundThe Personal Barber Samurai Solid Cologne RRP £19.95

After lots of customer requests, we are proud to be launching our latest solid cologne in the popular Samurai scent!

With its blend of premium ingredients, Samurai provides a fresh and invigorating scent that boasts the perfect balance of citrus and herbal top notes such as bergamot, orange, eucalyptus, and rosemary rounded out with notes of ginger, clove, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg on a base of sandalwood, cedarwood, amber and musk

The compact design of our solid colognes allows for easy use on-the-go, perfect for men who are always on the move. It can be easily stored in a toiletry bag or pocket and because it’s also alcohol-free it can be taken on a flight without worry.

Made from a luxurious blend of berry wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, & carefully chosen parfum which means it won’t dry out your skin but in fact keep it moisturised as well as smelling great. By using berry wax rather than the more common bees wax, our cologne is also suitable for vegans! (But don’t eat it, obviously)

To use: Gently rub your finger over the balm and then apply to your pulse points such as your wrist, neck and behind your ears. We use the pulse points because they heat up the cologne, making it last longer. Want a stronger scent? Use the back of your nail to scrape off a larger quantity. The more you use, the stronger it will be.

Ingredients: Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera, Parfum, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Benzoate, Linalool, Citral

Gillette Nacet and Derby Premium razorblade packs for double-edge safety razorsDerby Premium and Gillette Nacet Replacement Double-Edge Blades RRP £3.90

Derby Premium are manufactured in Turkey using premium Swedish steel with a range of coatings (chromium, ceramic, platinum, tungsten and polymer) to increase blade life and glide. Loved by beginners and veterans alike. They’re on the duller end of the sharpness spectrum but this premium version is sharper than the regular ‘Extras’ and plenty sharp enough to go through any well-prepared beard. However, they don’t tend to last as long as many other coated blades and therefore need replacing more often. Last 3-6 shaves.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Gillette Nacets are sharp enough to cut through a crocodile! Known to be a relatively sharp blade with minimal coating. It is ideal for thicker hairs, gives a very smooth finish and has great longevity. Expect between 3-7 shaves per blade with most people getting around 5 shaves before noticing a drop in effectiveness.
