A Harry Situation

Thursday, February 23, 2017
I'm so excited to share this review (as I am when I usually write one) because it's all about a men's razor company, Harry's. Yes, you read that correctly, men's razor company. I'm not going to lie, I was really confused when I read that that a men's company wanted to work with me but I also heard so many times about how men's razors are much better than women's (and cheaper but I think a lot of us know that, sadly).

After learning more about the brand, I was excited to try out their products! I chose to get the Winston Set. They have two different ones: Truman and Winston. The main difference is that Truman has a better grip for shower shaving but other than that, it's the same blade as the Winston set so really it's more of an aesthetic preference. I love getting things monogrammed. Although, I don't have anything else monogrammed, it's something I want to do all the time; whether it's a scarf, wallet, necklace, etc. if monogramming is an option, I'm sold on it. The Winston Set had an engravable option so I knew right away which one I wanted.

The packaging was aesthetically pleasing and all packaged nicely in the shave set. It came with a foaming shave gel, extra blades, travel case and the razor itself. The shave gel has a more masculine scent but I thought I'd try it out anyways! It smells fabulous actually and exactly like the men's cologne every female I know loves. It comes out as a gel but once you lather it on, it becomes foam. I don't know about you but products like that always fascinate me. As for the razor, it has 5 blades and a rubberized grip for control.

I ended up using the shaving gel for my legs since I obviously wouldn't be using it on my face. It's definitely not as effective as I would've liked it to be. Since the gel turns into a foam, the consistency is a bit thicker that you normally see with men's facial shaving. It wasn't anything like the more soapy kind of products that are available to women.

I decided to try shower shaving with the foam to see if it made any difference. Since the Winston razor isn't made with as strong of a grip like the Truman razor, I was still able to use it with ease. I found that using the gel in the shower was much more effective. It gives off a very close shave and the masculine scent doesn't linger as long as if you didn't use it in the shower.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with this razor so thank you so much to Harry's for sending it! Hope you enjoyed today's post :)
