My brother bought me some awesome Christmas presents this year, one that I was especially stoked to get was some shaving cream, post shave balm and a shaving brush. Normally shaving products are a bit of a cop out gift, but these were all from one of the coolest men’s grooming brands – Bluebeards Revenge.
Bluebeards Revenge are a grooming brand dedicated to men. You won’t find them selling ladies cosmetics that have just had the fragrance changed in order to market them to guys. All of their products are just made for the male market and with masculinity, effectiveness and quality as the focus.
One of the best things about Bluebeard’s Revenge (apart from their awesome branding and quality of product) is their use of something called Decelerine in their range. Basically this clever ingredient makes your hair grow back less dense and shorter, meaning that over time shaving tough, thick hair should become even easier.
The Bluebeards Revenge Luxury Shaving Cream
The word luxury is banded around too much, can a frozen prawn ring from Iceland really be that luxurious? Anywho I digress, the point I’m trying to make is that if you put the word ‘luxury’ in a product, you need to follow through. Boy, does the Bluebeard’s shaving cream do that! It’s designed to tackle common shaving problems that all men face, like the dreaded razor rash.
The whole range has this signature scent that is based on a traditional English barbershop scent but with a fresh, modern twist. To make it even cooler it’s packaged in a tub with a cool metal screw top lid, which has the skull and cross bones embossed on top of it.
The Bluebeards Revenge “Doubloon” Bristle Shaving Brush
The perfect accompaniment to their Luxury Shaving Cream is their badger brush. This is a great bit of gear and made me feel like a proper old fashioned gent when using it. Using a Shaving Brush not only looks cool, it also pushes the shaving lather under your bristles and makes them stick up – creating a closer shave.
It’s a brilliant quality shaving brush with a wooden handle that has cool lettering and Bluebeard’s Revenge’s trademark skull and crossbones logo both in gold. The shelf in your bathroom definitely needs a bit of sophistication and masculinity with this barber shop favourite.
The Bluebeards Revenge Post Shave Balm
After a shave you need a luxurious post shave balm to slap on your face and nourish and moisturise the hell out of your skin. Not only does this product do that with its recipe containing Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera, but it also contains that Decelerin stuff I’ve mentioned, to make your next shave even smoother.
