    Best Foot Forward

    Posted by Darren on 12th Mar 2019

    This kit represents the best value for money out there. I gifted this kit to my cousin as he has been shaving a year and has shown interest "old-fashioned shaving". The brush and cream are perfect for a beginner and the razors available for use are all great performers of excellent quality

    Good Product

    Like the razor very much, the handle could have been a bit longer but all good. Cut the face a few times but getting used to it. I bought it to reduce my use of single use plastic, so all good.

    Great product

    Very much like the kit. Takes a while to get used to shaving this way, but it feels like a neater shave than any other razor. Love the brush. Could have done with some instructions for use on a few of the products in the pack, but overall would definitely recommend!

    New to DE Shaving...this kit is just right!

    Posted by Kev on 8th Nov 2016

    I also want to start by saying that the delivery was first class, came to me here in Germany within 4 days. The products chose for this kit are very good. The Proraso Green is exactly what I wanted, the Omega boar brush(for the Price) whips up a good lather in my bowl and exfoliates my face nicely. I took the Mühle R89, and what a Beauty it is for my sensitive skin, when teamed with the Gillette 7 O´Clock SS that came with the set. As an Irishman living in Germany I am delighted that I can get such good products and Service from an Irish Company(Support your own when you can). Thumbs up lads!

    Great starter kit

    Posted by Oscar on 3rd Nov 2015

    This is the perfect starter kit for anyone switching to DE razors. I previously used an electric shaver and Gillete razor/foam shaving before that. I chose the Edwin Jagger DE89L and I'm glad I did. This razor has a chrome finish, great weight and it fits nicely in the hand. There is a decent selection of razors to try included in the kit and the brush lathers and brings up the hair nicely before shaving. I loved the green Proraso cream provided, which leaves a nice scent on the face after shaving. The beginner needs to respect the sharp edge of the blade, however, and not put too much pressure on the face in order to shave.

    Great value starter kit.

    Posted by Dapper Dan on 21st Jun 2015

    After using an electric razor with foam/gel, I decided to try out the wet shaving method with soap and a DE razor. This was the best value kit here and it hasn't disappointed. I chose the Muhle R89 razor and it feels great to use. Nice weight and balance. The choice of blades is also a nice feature. So far I've found the Astra Superiors to work best for me. The Omega brush is also great quality and does a good job exfoliating the skin and working up a lather. Proraso cream smells and feels great compared to the gels that are around. Looking forward to trying the other Proraso creams! It would have been nice to have gotten a stand and mug for an extra few euro, but as I said, this is a great starter kit. I'm definitely looking forward to my next purchase from!

    Just what I needed

    Posted by Tom on 20th Jan 2015

    Just started wet shaving after using horrible electric razors for the past 5 years. This kit had everything I needed and immediately started giving me flawless wet shaves just two days after I ordered. The Edwin Jagger DE89L is a fantastic quality safety razor and the variety of blades gives a great starting point for beginners not knowing where to start. Although research your blades first! (There's a pack of feathers in there with the capacity to slice a novice up). My only problems were that I received Proraso green which is very strongly menthol based and I'm allergic to mint unfortunately (This problem is really the fault of my own lack of research and hence the 5 stars regardless). I absolutely loved the quality of cream though and immediately ordered Proraso red to suit my needs. If there was an option of Shaving creams that would be awesome but Proraso Green is quality and you really can't go wrong (allergies aside). Strongly recommend!
