So sad to write the last summary of the six week shave project with the St. James of London shaving products. St. James of London shaving products have proven to provide very close and comfortable shaves with a smooth outcome. St. James of London is not only a superior product in terms of shaving but also a time-saving product as well. The bowl less shaving cream proves to be a time-saving product that still allows you to practice the art of wet shaving every time you use it.
The bowl less shaving cream still requires lathering but just a different way of lathering. Instead of putting the soft shaving cream that comes in a tube in a bowl and then lather, you apply it to your shaving brush and then proceed to lather your Dome and face. The application is simple and to the point. Directly apply the cream to your shave brush and then work your lather by rotation of your brush on your Dome and face. this way still requires the traditional method of how you use your shave brush. Soaking your shave brush also proves to add quality to your shaving routine. After your brush is soaked its able to soak up more lather in abundance. More lather on your brush means more lather applied to your dome and face.
The brushless shaving cream is not the only products from St. James of London that I had the privilege of shaving with for six weeks. The shaving cream that did require a bowl was also one product that I shaved with for six weeks. There was no difference in function of lathering capabilities between the bowl less shaving cream and the shaving cream that takes a bowl for lathering before applying it to your Dome and face. The lather was smooth and creamy with both styles of shaving cream. Along with the shaving cream from St. James of London I also used the post shave gel and pre shave oil as a great pre and post prep routine during these last six weeks.
Overall these last six weeks with the St. James of London shaving products have proven to add value to each shave every day. The shaving products from St. James of London has not only added extra hydration and softness but suppleness as well. These last six weeks of shaving with the St. James of London shaving products have been more than perfect. The Shaving products from St. James of London is a shaving routine that I can follow every day with every shave. I would like to say thank you to St. James of London for their generosity and the chance to use their products for six weeks. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day!

At the end of week five and nearing the end of the six week shave project I’ve been looking back at the last couple of weeks and taking note on the positive contributions that the shaving products from St. James of London has made to my shaving routine. I’ve also noted some differences on the overall quality of my skin on my Dome and face compared to the beginning of the six week project. Nearing the end of the six week project with the shaving products from St. James of London I’m starting to notice a difference in how my skin feels compared to before the project.
The skin on my Dome and face feels softer to the touch. The level of suppleness and hydration has also increased judged by how smooth of a shave I’ve been getting. If your skin is dry and damaged your shave is not going to be smooth and gentle. In fact if your skin is dry and damaged the chances of any product no matter how natural it is, or, whether or not its vegan wont mean a thing. It’s a good chance that any product will burn and sting the first minute you apply it to your unhealthy skin. This is why researching your product before you use it is an important task to complete. Not every product you buy will probably contain all natural ingredients and that’s ok. It is important to use products that contain some ingredients such as meadowfoam seed oil, Sweet Almond oil, Glycerin, Coconut oil, Avocado oil and you definitely wont go wrong with products containing Bentonite clay either.
These are just a few ingredients of the top of my head that I know have great healing properties for your skin. These ingredients listed help rehydrate the skin while protecting the deeper level of water content found in your skin already. These ingredients also help keep your skin well moisturized fighting against razor burn, cuts and nicks. These qualities help keep your skin more supple and pliable adding healthy skin to the list of positive attributes the ingredients have to offer. Healthy pliable skin also means smoother shaves with less damaged skin integrity. Healthy pliable skin means less irritation from shaving products that other wise would not cause burning or irritation to begin with.
St. James of London has several of the ingredients mentioned above included in the list of ingredients used in manufacturing their shaving products. The St. James of London shaving products has helped keep the skin on my Dome and face supple and pliable and free of razor burn, cuts and nicks. The St. James of London shaving products has added positive attributes to each of my daily shaves and has added quality to my shaving regimen hands down. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day!

At the end of the fourth week out of the six week shave project with St. James of London I want to talk about pre and post prep routine with the pre-shave oil and aftershave balm from the St. James of London line of shave products. It should be no surprise by now that I’m a huge fan of the shaving cream line from St. James of London. The bowl less and bowl needed shaving cream provide a great shave with an over abundance of lather. The shaving cream also provides a more than adequate slickness that prevents razor burn, cuts and nicks. The ingredients found in all of the shaving creams from St. James of London provide your Dome and face with extra hydration, vitamins and nutrients that increases the suppleness of your skin. Each shave with the shaving creams from St. James of London has been comfortable and soothing adding luxurious to the many positive attributes these products provide to your daily shave.
Lets talk pre and post prep products from St. James of London. I’m a big supporter of pre and post prep items. I feel as though a good pre and post prep shave routine is just as important as the shave itself. I know that not every shaver feels this way and that’s ok. Shaving is all about choices. I also feel as though a good pre and post prep routine adds value to your shave and long-term quality attributes the longer you continue to use a pre and post prep routine. If you decide that you want to add a pre and post prep regimen to your shaving routine there are a couple of factors to consider. First lets define what products make up a pre and post prep routine. The pre portion consist of a pre-shave oil or pre-shave soap and exfoliant. The post portion of the routine consist of an after shave splash and/or balm, a moisturizer and sometimes a stronger astringent if needed. The exfoliant can be both pre and post, or, either/or.
When shaving with the products from St. James of London it’s important to know that they have your pre and post prep shave routine covered as well. I have been using the pre-shave oil and after shave balm gel from St. James of London for some time now and I’m loving what these products have done for my skin. The Mandarin and patchouli pre-shave oil and Cedarwood & Clarysage after shave balm gel adds extra hydration and suppleness to the skin on your Dome and face. These products also increase the suppleness of your skin through ingredients such as Glycerin, Sweet Almond oil, Jojoba seed oil and sunflower seed oil.
Adding value to each shave is important. A good pre and post prep shave routine adds that value with qualities such as extra hydration for your skin. No matter what style of shaving you practice straight razor, DE razor, cartridge or all three, it’s hard on your skin. The selected razor for your nightly shave does cause some irritation to some level. Even if you don’t feel it, it’s still there. A good pre and post prep shaving routine helps to combat the irritation no matter what level it is. There is a certain breed of shaver that never practices a pre and post prep shave routine because they don’t need it. They have no issues with irritation at all. To the other half of shavers including myself, a pre and post prep routine is vital to a good shave that turns into a fantastic shave. Let the pre and post prep shaving products from St. James of London be those products to turn each one of your shaves into fantastic on an every day basis. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day!
