When it comes to holiday’s neither my wife nor I go heavy on the gift giving. We’re both over 30, and are pretty smart with our money. That means if there’s something we really want, and it makes financial sense, we buy it.
Instead when it comes to gifts we like to do small things, especially those that relate to something we do often. Maybe some new cologne for me, or a couple nice wine glasses for my wife. Nothing extravagant, but something that they’ll use a lot or improves something they’re already doing.
That’s where Harry’s razors come in. I hadn’t changed the type of razor I used in years. I’m not sure why I started using the one I had, but I did, and I never thought to try anything else. The scenario was likely that I happened to be in a store, grabbed one off the shelf, and that was that. It was good enough, and that’s what kept me looking for something better.
But I should have. Like many things in life, my razor had become the 5 year old pair of underwear that I never thought to throw out, and I’m glad I finally did.
Before I jump into what I like about them, it’s worth mentioning that the blades cost around 50% less than the other premium razors, and in my opinion are just as good, if not better.
With other razors I’ve always had the issue of hair getting stuck in the blades after shaving. What’s nice about Harry’s blades is they have an extra large opening behind the blades, so it’s much easier to unclog them with a quick blast from the faucet.
Harry’s razors feel different when shaving as well. It’s hard to describe it in technical terms, but it feels “lighter.” The head seems to bend without as much pressure as the ones I’ve used before, and glide across my face easier.
They add a nice touch in their starter packs as well. You get the razor handle, two blades and a razor head cover. The head cover comes in especially handy when traveling. It doesn’t take up much more space in a bag than the razor itself, and is vented so the little lubricating strip on the back dries out without sticking to anything. It’s a small feature, but for how convenient it is, I’m surprised noone’s done it before.
Harry’s has their own line of skincare and shaving creams worth checking out as well. Just like the razors, they’re a premium product at a much kinder price.
I’ve been using their shave cream along with their face lotion in the mornings. I’m particularly liking the lotion, because it doesn’t leave my face greasy, includes SPF 15 sun protection, doesn’t cause my face to break out like some of the more expensive brands I’ve tried, and comes in at less than $8 per bottle. I use their face wash as well, but usually only after days where I’ve thrown on some heavy sunscreen for a day out on the water. It isn’t overly harsh, has a nice minty smell and comes in at under $7 as well.
I’ll link everything below for anyone who wants to try them out. Does anyone else have any Father’s day weekend plans? After spending the last week in Colorado, we’re jumping back on the home renovation front. This weekend we’re finishing the Polyurea coating in our garage and starting to install all of the smart home light switches. Follow along on Instagram and Stories.
