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.
