Conerstone Shaving Gift Box *Review*

A Better Way to Shave – Great tag line and to be honest they nailed it..

I was lucky enough to receive a Cornerstone gift box recently which arrived in the post yesterday, due to other fatherly duties I was delayed in opening the box which certainly arrived well wrapped and secure.

When i removed the wrapping the first thing I noticed was the packaging, very environmentally friendly and has the right amount of decoration with a bold logo in red across the top bottom quarter.  Slide the tray open and the contents are displayed with care and attention.

The first item i notice is the gleaming razor with my initials engraved with great detail. Lovely weight to the razor and the balance in hand was spot on. This looks to have been created with due care and attention as it sits in the hand so well.

Inside are the products Face Scrub, Shave Gel and post shave balm, this is a shaving system..


I was about to dive right in with a shave when I paused for thought and just took a quick read of the product information and noted there is a three step process to obtain the best shave.

  1. Open the pores with a warm water wash, then use the Face Scrub before shaving to prevent nicks, cuts and shaving bumps – the exfoliating grains help release ingrowing hairs, reduce shaving spots, unblock pores and lift dead skin cells. Suitable for sensitive skin
    • The Scrub itself is a dark grey – reminded me of a grey used for modeling paint when i was a kid, I was surprised how runny this was though, could do with being a touch thicker – Only a little is needed however as it goes a long way.
  2. Apply the Shave Gel which Protects and rehydrates your skin to help reduce shaving irritation. Purposely formulated to give a comfortable shave rather than creating a fluffy white cloud on your face, Start shaving..
    • Mint green in color and only a small amount was needed to lather up the face, nice consistency and worked very well with the razor. Amazing ginger scent on this that’s promotes a feeling of freshness.
  3. Post Shave Balm used after shaving, our Post-Shave Balm cools, refreshes and moisturises skin to help retain natural moisture. Suitable for sensitive skin.
    • Cooling effects that finish off the process and really leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face the day. 

If you follow these rules and to be honest you really need to, you will obtain a shave unlike anything you have had before. The scent from the various product are amazing, Ginger from the Shave Gel very much a Thai influence, earthy tones from the Face Scrub and a cooling effect from the Post Shave Balm enhance the experience left my face a smooth and refreshed as i have ever felt it. Mrs DofWD spotted the fact i shaved, a feat i don’t manage often maybe twice a week and slide her hand across my cheek and commented it was never as smooth as this and took a deep intake of breath to smell the post shave balm and was very very impressed.

If you are debating whether to treat yourself or your hubby to a first class shaving experience that wont cost the earth look no further, short of a trip to Istanbul this is the best shaving experience you can get.
