The Power of Twitter and The Village Barber!

Here is the story – while browsing around on Twitter I came across ‘The Village Barber’ – as the name suggests Iain is indeed a village barber and as it turned out was based not too far from us, so I decided to make a connection.   We met up and as Iain had launched his own brand of shaving oil and balm I just had to try them.  To cut a long story short I liked them so much that I decided to stock them in our online shop as they worked really well alongside our Travel Razor Set. If you have tried them we would love to hear your feedback, perhaps in a review or on our Facebook page.

In the past we have blogged about Village Barber products and how much we love them. Not only because they are made locally to us, but also because we just love the way they accompany our shave!

If you haven’t tried them yet, you really are missing out. Both the Pre-Shaving Oil and Aftershave Balm go down a treat even on very sensitive skin. The oil is not too thick and only requires a small amount to moisten your facial hair and get to work. If you have tried other oils in the past you will know that usually you wouldn’t shave with the oil on, but this one is different. Of course you can use your favourite shaving soap or cream after the oil, but for something refreshingly different leave the oil applied for a little while then simply shave.

I can forgive you if you’re thinking that the oil would “clog up” the safety razor but that’s the great thing – it simply doesn’t! After you’re done shaving a small amount of the Village Barber Aftershave Balm will make for a great finish and what’s more is it’s cooling and smells just great.

Why are we re-visiting Village Barber you ask? Because now both of these fantastic products are available as a Travel Set, which you can take with you even if flying as both are only 30ml.

Of course this would also be a fantastic opportunity to try both products for the unfortunate shavers out there which haven’t yet!

Please Note: Due to the almond oil used in the Shaving Oil this product is not suitable for people with a nut allergy. We may have an alternative available, so please feel free to get in touch.
