Instruction Card on how to Wet Shave

They really should tailor these instructions for women ~ legs, armpits and other pit places…I am not shaving my face, guys….

Wet Shave Club Safety Razor in Pink ~ WOW, this razor has some heft to it .  This is a very weighty razor and not some lightweight plastic thing.  This is a wonderfully enameled pink handled razor that has Wet Shave Club on the top of its head.  I cannot wait to use this tomorrow morning!   This is designed by Kevin Pereira, one of the owners of WSC.  Value $29.99

Description:  If Floyd can be Pink, then so can you. This double edge safety razor can tackle all things, big and small. This safety razor will leave you with silky smooth skin, irritation-free. This investment will last for years to come and will instantly up your shaving-game. Think pink – life’s better that way.

Treet Dura Sharp Double Edge Blades (10 pack)   These carbon steel double edged blades will fit in the Pink razor.   According to WSC, I should change my blade every 3 days or so.  Value $3.99

Satin Tip – The Purest – Luxury Synthetic Shaving Brush in Black  I have never used a shaving brush before, so I am interested on how this works with my soaps and a close shave.   This brush feels so soft and if I just cannot master using the brush as a shaving brush, I might reappropriate this as a facial powder brush!  The handle is a matte rubber that is easy to grasp and makes it non-slippery when your hands are wet and soapy.   I also like that it is synthetic as many shaving brushes that are made with natural hairs are getting the hairs from China and their fur farms.   So far, this box is shaping up nicely!   Value $29.99

Description: These brushes by Satin Tip have had hundreds of hours of research and product development to build what we feel are the world’s finest and most affordable synthetic shaving brushes.  Each brush comes with an attractive paper slip case for storage and travel.   Made of 100% pure synthetic materials. Ultra soft ends, but firm enough core bristles to make a great lather. These brushes rival and yield better results than most badger hair versions. The handles are just as amazing as the bristle.  Made with a low slip rubberized coating these handles always receive high praise.  As another added bonus of utilizing a synthetic brush you can take comfort in the fact that your product has not contributed to animal cruelty and the badger and boar fur farms primarily in China.  

Shaving Soap pucks by Stirling Soap Co  I received two 1 oz  sample pucks of soaps, one in Strawberry Bubbly and the other in Black Cherry.  Please note, that these soaps do contain animal fats, so if you are looking for a vegan soap, this isn’t it.  However, I don’t have objections to beef tallow in my soap, as it is becoming more popular in DIY and indie soap makers and beef tallow makes this soap more slick and easy to shave with.   This also contains almond oil, shea butter and lanolin too. WSC stated on their IG account that these were cruelty free. I can really smell the Black Cherry one ~ it reminds me of Faygo Black Cherry Soda Pop and I love it!  Strawberry Bubbly reminds me of strawberry bubble gum 🙂  These soaps are very pliable and you can bend them like silly putty.    I checked out Stirling Soap Co’s scents and there are a few that I would love to try out, such as Cocoa Forest, Lemon Glacial, Lemony Orange, Frozen Tundra, Tuscany and Bergamot Lavender.   Sample 1 oz pucks:  Strawberry Bubbly: Value $1.25  Black Cherry:  Value $2.50

Description: For one of the best shaves on the market at any price, pick up a puck of Stirling Shave Soap. With an improved lather that is easy to build, this soap provides a slickness that is unmatched! Made by hand in small batches, this (full sized) puck is 3 inches in diameter and weighs approximately 125 grams (may vary slightly based on cure time). Meant to be used with a brush and shaving bowl or apothecary cup, we guarantee that this soap will outlast a normal can of shaving foam or gel and leave you feeling silky smooth.  NOTE: Our shave samples are three inches in diameter just like the full pucks. They will weigh between 20-30 grams. They are a perfect fit for the small tins that can be found in the Hardware section.

I do recommend watching these videos on both the dry and wet method with Stirling Soaps

Whoo’s Soaps Strawberry Citrus Body Frosting After shaving my legs, a good body lotion is required!  This smooth, lightweight but very moisturizing lotion is very creamy and I can smell the strawberries with a faint scent of lemon/lime and almost soapy-fresh.   This scent reminds me of something from my childhood, but I cannot place it.   This lotion is full of antioxidants, emollients and moisturizing ingredients.   Whoo’s Soap is an Etsy shop (yeah, go etsy!) and they have sugar scrubs, perfumes and shampoos there, as well as a men’s shop.  This lotion is not in their shop yet, so I am thinking it is either brand new or exclusive to WSC Ladies box!   Sample Size 2 oz Value $3.00 (based on other past lotions they sold)

Ingredients: water, safflower oil, glycerin, butylene glycol, stearic acid, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100, cetyl alcohol, dimethicone,allantoin, Vitamin B5, aloe vera juice, calendula officinals flower extract, chamomile extract, cucumber fruit extract, lavender extract, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, carbomer, triethanolamine, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, ethylhexylglycerin, hexylene glycol, fragrance oils   cosDNA.com analysis


I really love my Wet Shave Club Ladies Box!!  I am pretty excited about trying these products and cannot wait to see what is in my next box.  I would love it if they had a shaving bowl included (I am going to have to use a cereal bowl for now! haha), maybe a tin for our soap pucks and as far as scents go, women do like piney, herbal, minty and citrus scents!  Please don’t think we all want floral and berries  (although I LOVE the Black Cherry soap scent!)   I paid $14.50 as I took advantage of the pre-order where I would get 50% off my first box and received a value of almost $71.00!  Pretty good deal 🙂   Did you get the Ladies Box from Wet Shave Club?  Are you excited to try out your hand at wet shaving?  I am!! 

If you are interested in subscribing, either for the ladies or the man’s box, I would love it if you used my referral link!
