Craig shows us a great shaving kit from Hommage for Christmas 2017
If we can make the daily routine of shaving a little more luxurious and a more enjoyable experience with a few great products, I think we should do it. It is said that the average man will spend 900 hours shaving between the ages of 15 and 75. Imagine what 900 hours of shaving with poor products and a bad razor is going to do to your skin, let alone your resolve!
Welcome therefore to Hommage, a gentleman’s emporium which has provided luxury shaving items and skincare for us humble gents for over a decade. With a range of kits to choose from and the offer of a bi-monthly subscription service it seems they’ve thought of everything. No truer is this than in the packaging, as that alone is a wonderful experience and rivals any other product packaging that I’ve seen before. Each item is individually boxed and has a separate compartment in a dual gift box which is coupled using magnetic fastenings.
For this sponsored post I want to show you what’s inside my Hommage shaving kit. Above I’m using the shaving oil which is a pre shave treatment to soften the bristles of the beard to make shaving less of a ‘drag’. The oil smells great and absorbs very easily.
The Manhattan razor is a great design with its wide base, meaning that it will stand without effort, and it will look great on your bathroom shelf. If you need to take it on your business trip you can, as it also comes with a smart black leather travel box.
Also inside the kit is the shave cream. Again with a really nice fresh and masculine scent, it lathers really well, and feels great on the skin, giving a really smooth shave.
Also my particular box contained two sachets of cleanser and age defence lotion which are a very nice addition to the kit. I also received the refreshing towlette which is perfect when travelling to refresh the skin and make you smell fresh too with Hommage’s signature Monaco scent which is a combination of tobacco, sandalwood and amber from Grasse, France.
Above is the soothing shave balm. Designed to lock in moisture for the entire day, it’s a technologically advanced serum containing silicone’s and natural active ingredients. All that aside it smells wonderful too.
And if all that wasn’t enough you even get a snazzy little stand to keep everything in it’s place and to stop the other half moaning that you’ve left your shaving cream somewhere it shouldn’t be.
At £96.00 for the premium shaving kit, it’s a really nice gift for the man in your life this Christmas. And if you’re feeling particularly generous why not buy him a subscription, when Hommage will send a new kit to his office, home or Hotel every 60 days for between £30 and £60 a time.
Is it something that you’d consider giving as a gift? Maybe you’d like one for yourself? What do you think of subscriptions services like this? I’d love to hear your thoughts so please leave a comment for me and I’ll get back to you. Thanks for stopping by.
