There are so many shaving products available to us guys, most of which are highly advertised with images of good looking guys or sportsmen to lure us into trying that brand. Like with all products I use I always check out the ingredients as it can be so easy to be drawn into the lifestyle which a brand is projecting more than the quality of the products.
One of my favourite shaving brands is Cornerstone they offer high quality, paraben and alcohol free shaving products, which are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, that are delivered direct to your home as often as you need them. So you never have to run out and purchase an inferior product to shave with for work or play. This is was Oliver Bridge’s ethos when creating this brand, that the cost of shaving was always on the rise with two main brands dominating the market and the time taken to wait in queues on lunch breaks or after work to pick up these essentials, so came up with the Cornerstone brand and unique delivery system.
There are 3 simple steps to set up and create your own bespoke shaving plan.
Step 1 – Visit the Cornerstone website and select how often you shave, is it daily? weekly or just now and then to maintain a groomed appearance. Depending on this choice will alter the frequency you recieve your shaving box. (Either every 6, 12 or 24 weeks)
Step 2 – Select your perfect combination of products to match your personal shaving routine, and you also have the choice if you would like your razor to have engraved initials, which is it no extra cost. (From £5 for one product to £30 for all four products)
Step 3 – Provide payment and delivery information and the job is done. (Delivery is free of charge)
You can also take advantage of a £10 saving off your first order and there will be a £10 gift card in your box to spread the word to your friends too.
The products you can choose from are as follows –
- Pre Shave Face Scrub – I adore the aroma of this scrub the unique blend of Cedarwood, gives an aromatic manly scent. Whilst the addition of Volcanic Sand gently buffs away the dead skin from around the hair follicle, giving a closer shave. My top tip is to mix a small amount of the scrub with water then apply to the face and massage in circular motions.
- Sensitive Shave Gel – One of my favourite essential oils particularly in Winter is Eucalyptus. It helps to refresh and revive my skin on cold mornings to set me up for the day. It also has natural anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties. I like that once the gel is applied to the skin it remains clear to get a close shave and precise shave.
- Razor Blades – These are German engineered with five sharp, fine blades mounted on a strong yet lightweight aluminium alloy handle, with a Vitamin E and Aloe Vera strip. This razor also won an award for the Best Shaver or Razor in the 2015 Short.List Mens Grooming Awards.
- Post Shave Balm – This is one of the best skin comforting moiturisers that I have used, the unique blend of Mint and Honey work to cool and refresh the skin, whilst putting back hydration into the skin. I would reccomend to use this as a daily moisturiser even when not shaving.
Overall I think this is a wonderful unique concept, high quality products and tools to give the perfect shave, without the stress or worry of running out of any of these products, so you can always have a fantastic shave and remain groomed. The packaging looks very high tech and edgy and would take pride of place in any guys bathroom. Also for every friend that you reccomend to Cornerstone you both will get a £10 voucher to redeem off your next order, making this system a cost effective shaving solution.
