They have recently added two exciting new products to there range.

The Brushless Shaving Solution is ideal for those with limited time to spare in the mornings, with a slippery texture which allows the razor to glide across the face with ease.  A clever gelling agent acts as the ‘cushion’, enabling just the right level of contact between the razor and the face, and facilitating a smooth, painless shave.

Cooling Moisturiser is the ideal follow-up, packed with the ‘manliest of ingredients’ (prickly pear and stinging nettle, to name but a couple!) to soothe and re-invigorate the skin.
