Shaving has been part of human culture for thousands of years, and has enjoyed a varied history throughout the ages.
It was in the 19th and 20th century that shaving as we know it today took form, and many of the traditional tools and methods from that time are still used to this day.
The barest essential - men’s razors are available in many shapes and sizes, from the classic double edge safety razors to those compatible with the Gillette Fusion blades or Gillette Mach3 blades that enjoy worldwide popularity. Don’t overlook our excellent selection of women’s razors - although all our products are unisex.
We also offer various types of straight razor – sometimes referred to as a cut-throat razor, shavette, or barber razor.
Many of our razors are available either individually or as part of a shaving kit.
A shaving brush is a key element of any traditional shave. It is used in conjunction with a quality shaving soap or shaving cream to whip up a thick and luxurious lather which is applied to the face, coating the hairs and lubricating the skin.
We offer a range of badger hair brushes ranging from the budget friendly pure badger shaving brushes to the super-soft and luxurious silver tip badger shaving brushes. We also have an ever-expanding range of synthetic shaving brushes available, perfect for those wishing to avoid animal products or seeking a quick-drying option.
Perhaps the largest and most varied section on the site, our selection of shaving creams (and shaving soaps) from around the world are where you can have a bit of fun in personalising your shaving set-up.
Available in tubs, tubes, and refills, the huge variation in ingredients, consistency, fragrance, and performance means there is lots of experimenting to be done to find your perfect shaving cream or soap!
The shaving experience can be further heightened with a quality pre shave and post shave preparation, ensuring top performance and long-lasting satisfaction.
In addition to the many shaving supplies available, we also offer a wide selection of male grooming skin care products. These include body wash and exfoliators help to cleanse and nourish, and our range of fragrances including aftershaves, deodorant, and cologne which ensure you leave a lasting impression wherever you go. You can customise your very own male grooming kit in any which way – select the brands, ingredients, and styles you like the best at the most competitive prices.
We’ve been working hard to bring in some of the best male hair care brands to our offerings – after all, what good is a tidy face without a tidy hair cut? From the shampoo and conditioner required to clean and prepare, to the combs and brushes needed to neaten, and the styling products needed to fix and style – we’ve got you covered.
Much like shaving, beards and moustaches have had a long and interesting history, with popularity and style ebbing and flowing throughout the years. Today, perhaps more than ever, it’s crucial that your beard is well maintained to keep it looking its best.
We’ve got everything you need including beard oil, beard balm, beard wash, moustache wax, scissors, and even a bunch of beard grooming kits to keep things looking neat and tidy.
Men can often be a difficult bunch to buy for, but our range of shaving and men’s grooming gifts and gift cards should mean you’ll never be stuck for ideas again. Our superb selection of travel cases and wash bags will allow your man to travel in style and protect the fine shaving accoutrements he’s picked up along the way!
We hope you enjoy browsing through our products and find exactly the items you are looking for. Happy shopping!
