'The Bluebeards Revenge' Shaving Products for Men (and women if your sneaky hehe)...

My Fiance was thrilled at the prospect of trying out 'The Bluebeards Revenge' shaving products after seeing all the samples I get to try - bless him! I was given the chance to sample The Bluebeards Revenge Luxury Shaving Cream 100ml (£9.99), The Bluebeards Revenge Post Shave Balm 20ml (£2.99) and The Bluebeards Revenge 'Doubloon' Bristle Shaving Brush (£6.99) from the range.

I thought this would be a perfect chance for me to blog from a male point of view but was also told that the shaving cream is great for women as it has an ingredient called Decelerine in it which reduces hair growth - who doesn't want this?!

You can find out all the information you need about the company, their products (they sell other products aswell as the products being reviewed in this post, for example: deodorants, body sprays, shaving accessories, shaving gift sets and razors), the science behind their products, reviews etc by checking out their website here. In the meantime, here are a few bits of info about the company and their products:

  • The Bluebeards Revenge is a premium range of quality shaving and skincare products aimed at 'mainly' men.
  • The flagship product in the range is the paraben free, premium quality shaving cream with added ingredients like Decelerine to specifically combat tough stubble and reduce hair growth.
  • The Bluebeards Revenge is known to virtually eradicate shaving rash, burns and those uncomfortable lumps and bumps.
  • The Bluebeards Revenge uses totally recyclable packaging.
  • The Bluebeards Revenge has a signature scent - based on a fresh and classic English barbershop scent with a modern twist.
  • Based on an almond sized amount, a 100ml tub of The Bluebeards Revenge shaving cream will last for about 50 shaves.
  • The Bluebeards Revenge range is made with vegetarian friendly ingredients.

I thought of a few questions that I can imagine people would want answers to regarding the products my Fiance got to sample and I asked them to him. Here are his responses:

What did you think of the fragrance of The Bluebeards Revenge Shaving Cream and Post Shave Balm?

Both products smell really nice. The post shave balm is particularly nice, with a strong odour that lingers for hours.

What were your first thoughts on the packaging?

I think the packaging design is very original, especially with the skull and crossbones keeping to the 'Bluebeard' theme.

Do you think the products you received to sample are good value for money?

The shaving cream is quite pricey when looking at other shaving creams/foams, but you are paying for quality and it's definitely worth it. A little bit of cream goes a long way so the product last for ages! The sample size of the post shave balm lasts for about 1-2 weeks and I think it's a good price to try a product out and good that the company even offers this in the first place. The shaving brush is definitely worth the money as it is good quality and doesn't shed or feel uncomfortable when using it.

How do the products feel on your skin?

Both products I got to sample feel lovely and smooth on the skin and there is no irritation at all. The brush I sampled was also soft and doesn't scratch the skin.

What was the texture like for the two products you sampled?

The shaving cream is really creamy, it feels like a whipped cream - light and fluffy. The post shave balm is also really creamy but has more of a thicker consistency.

What were the best things about the products you sampled?

The post shave balm leaves a lovely smell on the skin and instead of it stinging it provides a cooling fresh feeling. I also noticed that when I started to use The Bluebeards Revenge shaving cream, I experienced no pain at all whilst shaving and this is normally a problem I face. Even though I read about the product having an ingredient that reduced hair growth, it was nice to actually experience it after about a month or two.

Did you find that The Bluebeards Revenge Shaving Cream reduced hair growth over a period of time?

I have pretty much used all of the shaving cream now and having received it at the beginning of August 2011, it has lasted for four months, which I think is great for a shaving cream! I certainly feel it has reduced hair growth. I only shave once the hair is visible rather than shave when there is stubble and the product added days in-between shaves.

What is your overall opinion of The Bluebeards Revenge?

I am very impressed. The products make shaving less of a chore. I will definitely look to purchase more of The Bluebeards Revenge products in the future.

You can see that my Fiance's feedback is very positive. So I wanted to write this review to let all my readers know about this fabulous brand and their products. If you want to treat the man in your life or maybe you need a present idea for your dad, brother, uncle, grandad etc...then I think this is definitely something to consider! Or if you are a male reading this...then why not treat yourself to premium quality products and get the perfect smooth shave that you always look for. There are even 20ml samples to purchase of the shaving cream and the post shave balm for £2.99 each so you can give it a try before deciding to purchase the full size products.

You can also purchase The Bluebeards Revenge products at one of their leading online stockists here.

If you have any more questions regarding the products that my Fiance got to sample, feel free to ask me and I can ask him for you :-).

Have any of you tried this brand of shaving products before? If so, what did you think?

Thanks so much for reading my post-please follow, like and comment :-).

Much Love Gem XxOo
