Noticeably closer shave and a great overall shaving experience! Review by Dan
I noticed the shave to be overall much closer than using just foamy shaving cream.
Previously I would have "patches" that could not be shaved closely and now those areas feel "smoother."
The overall shaving experience has also now become something to look forward too. I love the smell and sensation of each product and my skin just feels great when I'm all done.
I think the kit is a much better value than buying any of the products alone. I was tempted to buy the shave oil by itself but when I saw you could get the same size shave oil with three more products, I just said it was a better deal to buy the kit.
My only advice is to be careful with the shave oil pump as it squirts out a lot more than a drop at a time. You probably need more like 4 drops of the stuff but definitely don't use a whole lot of it at a time. I honestly believe the shave oil is the key to the close shave as it really gets the hair ready for the cut.
If you haven't already upgraded from the standard foamy shaving cream and disposable razor shave, I highly recommend you give this kit a try because you will definitely see and feel a big difference.
First time user. Great value. Review by jeffry
Just bought a Parker butterfly razor and this kit. Should have ditched the disposables a long time ago. I enjoyed shaving today. At 25 dollars the kit is worth a try.
Grooming Lounge Shave Kit Review by Chuck
I purchased this kit and have been trying to use it as instructed. I am 53 and have been shaving in the shower with a bar of soap and not applying any aftershave. I figured I would take a different route and try taking better care of my skin.
When I apply the face wash, then oil, then shavecream and finally the aftershave my face is breaking out as if I were a teenager.
I have sense quit using the oil and the aftershave and only using the shave cream until its gone then going back to traditional shaving cream. I think this product is a little too pricy to make my skin break out.
too strong of a scent Review by Chad
As far as function goes, this stuff worked great. I just can't get past its smell. Others may love it, but it isn't for me which is a shame because it really works great.
A Must-Have Review by Chris from SC
I got my first hot shave with a straight razor this past weekend in Charleston, SC and it was amazing. The barber shop used American Crew shave products and my face felt amazing afterwards. Absolutely no razor burn or bumps. Before this, I was using the traditional cheap disposable razors and Gilette shave foam. What a joke after having this done. After my hot shave, I got to thinking about a better way to shave and a friend referred me to this website. After reading the reviews, I decided to get the Grooming Lounge "Greatest Shave Ever" try me kit and a Parker Heavy Safety Razor and Merkur blades. Shaved for the first time with all of my new goodies and it was even better than the hot shave at the barber shop. If you follow the tips and techniques you will never have to worry about razor irritation or bumps ever again. Grooming Lounge makes one of the best kits and I will continue to purchase them. Also, they throw in some pretty good freebies with your order so definitely purchase from them. You can't go wrong with Grooming Lounge.
Great for travel Review by John
This kit is great for traveling. If flying make sure not to pack it in your carry-on because of TSA regulations. The products in this kit are a great combination for shaving, and this is coming from someone who has been bothered by shaving for years until now.
Gave these to my groomsmen Review by El Rooparabra
Gave these to my groomsmen at my wedding and it was a hit. Great gift and a great sampler. Highly recommended. The Grooming Lounge products are a better value than any other brand at the Grooming Lounge.
Awesome! Review by William
I am the son of a barber and can honestly say these are great products for your face. One must learn to take the time to shave properly. Following your steps help do that. Thanks!
Perfect for the frequent traveller Review by Adam
I travel a lot for work, so this a perfect product for me. It's a great way to ensure that you don't have to skimp on quality even if you are on the road.
Fantastic Starter Pack Review by ian
This kit offers a great range of products that really work. The face wash leaves your skin squeaky clean. The cream and oil work brilliantly when cocktailed together or individually. But the shining light is the aftershave. It is simply wonderful.
You will not be disappointed.
