I got this kit tso that my husband & I could try out "safety" razors. This is brilliant! Thank you! For thinking this out & putting it together.
We got the mr9 razor & I love it. He doesn't complain much about anything, & he didn't have one injury when he was done, me either, now that I think of it! This was definitely a win. No more expensive cartridges, or I. Urn case, ill arm store razors long over used & painfully dull. No is: these won't choke some poor little sea creatures, make a mess of the ocean. I like that too.
We used the Astra platinum blade first, & so far so good! I didn't give it 5 stars because there are 2 soap options, & neither sounded particularly appealing to me. I gambled on the lime & I didn't like it. To me, it smells like powdered laundry detergent or something. Not my thing. It's not so bad once one is finished, the lingering part improves, but this was definitely not the right choice for us. Should have tried the mango I guess. I ordered Kells vanilla bean along with this & im so very glad I did! Made the whole experience I'm telling you! I love the purple synthetic brush. Since I'm new to this, this is my one & only shave brush, but it's softer than my makeup brush. I prefer the feel of it for sure. So this is an excellent way to try this out. Otherwise it can be quite expensive. I'm amazed at how FAST everything got here! I'm used to things taking a bit to get up here, but not this! Wow. I appreciate their customer service as well, they were VERY helpful! I also got the block of alum, which was a brilliant recommendation on their part. Haven't had any nicks, but it has other purposes as well,& so far, it's very useful. Thank you. the only thing I'd change is the smell of the Soap. This is a kit for women, & I definitely don't want to smell like that. Other than that, this was exactly what we needed. & it's agree at value. But I think the pucker power of limes isn't the most inviting introduction to this... definitely wish I'd gone With the mango over the lime. :)
