In January 2016 I decided that I was paying too much for my grooming gear, so I decided to look about and try a few different products to see if I could cut my cost even just a little.
I tried many different shop brands and found my shave still wasn’t as good as my original selection which I had been using for many years. After a while, I noticed that there were a few companies that do shaving gear for guys but done via the post which I thought sounded interesting.
I found 3 companies that did this and started working my way through them.
I won’t mention the ones I didn’t like, but I will mention the reasons.
- The Blades : I found sometimes one blade would be fine, then the next one I used would slice me, would only work for one shave, and be blunt
- The Handle : The shaving handle wasn’t great, it was meant to be flexible to go round the contours of the face. Due to it being flexible I found it tricky to use or it would break and I would have to order another.
- The Gel : I have sensitive skin and even the ones that were meant for that, i always found it felt like it burned my skin or made me very red after it.
These are the main reasons, and then I came across Cornerstone.
Just like the other mail ones I tried, Cornerstone is also nicely presented.
My first order I ordered what I needed, as some things I preferred a specific brand :
First Box :
- Razor Blade (optional engraving with your initials free)
- Shaving Gel
For me I can’t fault this service, it arrives when it says and gives a really good shave. The quality of the products are all top, and nothing about this screams cheap.
Why not give it a try for a month? you can cancel when you like plus if you click the link below it gives you £10 off your first order. The joining process is very simple and only takes a few clicks.
For me this is a great service, I always get a good close shave and I have managed to cut my monthly costs. I have recommended this to a few friends, and just like me they think the same.
