Manly Stuff offer not only manly shaving and grooming products, but watches, collar stiffeners, pocket squares and a few other essentials for those of us with a Y chromosome. I was sent a traditional razor (the best type in my view) for review with grooming oil and a shaving brush.
Here's how I got on with them....
I like to prepare for a shave with gel before using soap and brush. The lemony oil was perfect for this, leaving the skin soft and scented after the shave and helping the razor glide over the skin. I used a DR Harris shaving soap which worked well with this combination. The DE (double-edge bladed) razor in a stealth black worked well with the provided Astra blades, giving a good shave with one pass. It's easy to use and ideal for a user new to DE shaving.
You can start with a beginner's wet shaving set for about 30 Euros (Manly Stuff are based in Ireland) or try one of the good selection of razors, blades and accessories. See Manly Stuff. Enter 'greyfox' at the checkout for a 20% discount.
