Over the last 20 years here at King of Shaves, we have received some lovely unsolicited emails, letters and telephone calls from happy customers who have just discovered one of our shave gels, oils or razors for the first time and are delighted that we have been able to help them achieve a great shave.
It reminds us of why we do what we do, as Will King would say “we shave lives”. But sometimes comments from our customers still manage to surprise us…
I know shaving: I was in an explosion / fire that burned my face off. I was shipped off to the leading place at that time to do what they could. Somehow I have no scars, albeit I have some scarring under my chin for a few years [and then] it went away. But what I was left with was some REALLY thin skin that burnt when the sun hit it.
Shaving for me has been a daily painful experience. After 5 days worth I begin to start bleeding due to my skin being so thin, so I take weekends off from the shave as a prepare for Monday.
My adult life has been a trek of trying to find a better way. I have tried every shaving lube there is, electrics, pre shaves, after shaves (which most felt like splashing gasoline on my face then lighting it).
To add insult to injury growing a beard is worse, my skin breaks out with any more than about 3 or 4 days of growth.
What I recommend…
Shaving lube: ‘King of Shaves’– perhaps the best formulation of a lube for the shaving effort in [the] history of man. WOW, when I discovered this it was a true breakthrough on comfortable shaving and protecting your skin from a razor. I have been able to double the life of my blades. I have never used anything better!
